    Retired General Steven M. Anderson warned of Donald Trump supporters in the military while calling them a threat from within, and advised them to stop listening to 'The Pillow Guy' - Trump ally and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.  Gen. Anderson, who spoke to CNN about the upcoming 2024 elections and the threat of another possible insurrection, called Lindell a major source of misinformation while adding that Trump supporters must get educated on civics and political discourse.    'There's a threat within,' the retired general told the network.  'We've got some people that just haven’t been educated. They haven't been found out, and they've grown in power, through perhaps inaction on the parts of some of our key leaders.' 'What we can do now, identify those people, get them out of our ranks, and train the rest of the force on civics 101, about how our country is supposed to work, how elections work,' he said.  SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO  Retired Gen.

    Del. Jay Jones (left) is running for attorney general of Virginia. This is the final installment in a series of interviews with Democratic candidates for statewide office in Virginia. If you ever have the chance to meet Virginia Del. Jay Jones in person, you'll come away with the impression that he's an affable and passionate public servant. He knows how to hold your gaze when he speaks, with an uncanny sense for both the physical (a hug, a chest bump, a handshake) and the intellectual (being able to seamlessly move between policy wonk and personal connection) when connecting with people. With an unapologetic focus on discussing the "kitchen table" problems that matter to working Virginia families, Jones, 32, is a modern progressive straight out of the proverbial “central casting.” If you don’t know where Jones comes from, you might miss the weight pressing down on him as the gravity of the past looms omnipresent. His grandfather fought Harry Byrd's "Massive Resistance" and was played a key role in integrating public schools in Virginia. His grandmother raised a family alone after her husband’s untimely death and still managed to...
    COVID-19 hospitalizations have surged in New York by almost 80 percent in the past four weeks, as the state battles a second wave of infections.  The shocking news was revealed Sunday, following confirmation that more than 1 million residents have now tested positive to the deadly coronavirus.   That number is likely to be far higher, given that widespread testing was not available when the state was rocked by the first wave of infections in the spring of last year.  New York state was the global epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic during that time, before infection rates began to fall at the start of summer.  However, the state is now entering a deadly new phase, with deaths, new cases and the overall positivity rate increasing along with the number of hospitalizations.   Gov. Cuomo confirmed that, as of Saturday, 7,963 New Yorkers are being treated for COVID-19 in the hospital.  That is a significant increase from the 4,442 who were in hospital back on December 5.   COVID-19 hospitalizations have surged in New York by almost 80 percent in the past four weeks,...

    NEW YORK - An expert committee put people 75 and older and essential workers like firefighters, teachers and grocery store workers next in line for COVID-19 shots as a second vaccine began rolling out Sunday to hospitals, a desperately needed boost as the nation works to bring the coronavirus pandemic under control. The developments occurred as the nation seeks to ramp up a vaccination program that only began in the last week and so far has given initial shots to about 556,000 Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The vaccines from Pfizer Inc. and Germany’s BioNTech, as well as the one from Moderna Inc., which was approved by regulators last week go first to health care workers and residents of long-term care homes, based on the advice of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The committee voted 13-1 on Sunday to put people 75 and older as well as certain front-line workers next in line for the vaccines. Those essential workers include firefighters and police officers; teachers and school staff; food and agriculture workers; manufacturing...
    Disgraced celebrity pastor Carl Lentz had multiple affairs – but is still getting a golden parachute, Hillsong church founder Brian Houston claimed in a bombshell audio recording, DailyMail.com can reveal. The former head of the megachurch's New York branch and favorite of famous members including Justin Bieber, was fired last month and admitted he cheated on his wife. The focus was initially on his 34-year-old mistress, New York City designer Ranin Karim, who went public days after the scandal emerged claiming that she broke off a months-long secret relationship with the married pastor in early November. But in an audio recording of a meeting of church executives and top donors held around November 19, Houston revealed allegations that Lentz, 42, had 'more than one affair'.  'It was more than one affair, they were significant. And at least some bad moral behavior had gone back historically, but not necessarily those affairs,' Houston said in the recording obtained by DailyMail.com.

    WASHINGTON – Although the Islamic State extremist group is battered and scattered, it cannot be fully defeated until the world finds a way to reconcile and resettle the thousands of people displaced by years of war in Iraq and Syria, the general overseeing American military operations in the Mideast said Thursday. Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, said there is no military means of solving the problem of Mideast refugees and internally displaced persons, or IDPs, who await repatriation or resettlement and represent what he called an unfortunate byproduct of armed conflicts. “Today, across vast swaths of Syria and Iraq, the systemic indoctrination of IDP and refugee camp populations who are hostage to the receipt of ISIS ideology is an alarming development with potentially generational implications,” McKenzie said in remarks to the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations. He said a solution must come from a joint effort by diplomatic, security and humanitarian organizations. “Unless the international community finds a way to repatriate, reintegrate into home communities, and support locally grown reconciliation programming of these people, ... we...
    By ROBERT BURNS, AP National Security Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — Although the Islamic State extremist group is battered and scattered, it cannot be fully defeated until the world finds a way to reconcile and resettle the thousands of people displaced by years of war in Iraq and Syria, the general overseeing American military operations in the Mideast said Thursday.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) – Early voting in California began Monday and a pair of propositions on the Nov, 3 ballot would expand voting rights in California – restoring the vote for some felons and allowing 17-year-olds to vote in primaries if they turn 18 before the general election. Currently, California felons who have completed their state or federal prison sentences are denied the right to vote until they finish their parole. Proposition 17 would amend the state constitution to give the vote to an estimated 50,000 people who supporters say have paid their debt to society and should be able to choose their representatives and shape the policies that affect their daily lives. Among Prop 17’s opponents is Republican state Sen. Jim Nielsen, who says restoring rights early to felons is a slap in the face to their victims, who should have the assurance that criminals are punished fully. “The victims cannot so blithely put the crimes behind them,” Nielsen said. “The rest of society deserves to know that the just consequences of the sentence has been duly served. And that...
    Nineteen detainees in the same dormitory at the Aurora Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days, according to a report from Congressman Jason Crow's office, marking the most significant outbreak at that detention center. "This spread within a single dorm shows the inherently dangerous nature of congregate settings like ICE detention centers," says Liz Jordan, an attorney with the Denver-based Civil Rights Enforcement and Education Center. "Even if the facility were following all CDC recommendations, an outbreak like this is not only possible, but likely. The safest thing ICE can do is release people to shelter at home with their families. Aurora Fire Rescue confirmed that it had been notified of the outbreak by facility staffers on October 2, per local ordinance.Related Stories Detainee Transfers Lead to COVID-19 Increase at Aurora ICE Facility Aurora ICE Facility Now Offering COVID-19 Tests to All Detainees House Subcommittee Report Takes Aim at Aurora Immigrant Detention Facility Over the course of the pandemic, nineteen staff members at the center have tested positive for COVID-19, and 73 detainees...
    During Día de Los Muertos, people remember and pay respect to deceased friends and relatives. For artist Tony Ortega, that means celebrating the three most important women in his life: his mother, grandmother and great-aunt. Ortega was an infant when his mother brought him to Denver from Pecos, New Mexico, searching for better job opportunities. While she moved from working as a janitor, waitress and nurse's aide in a senior home to eventually getting an admissions-clerk position at Denver General Hospital, she always wanted the best for her son. His grandmother was a seamstress and storyteller who made clothes, embroidered, crocheted and quilted, which influenced Ortega's artistic beginnings. His great-aunt also helped raise him. At the Longmont Museum's twentieth-anniversary Día de Los Muertos exhibit, which runs from Friday, October 2, through January 9, Ortega plans to honor them all.  Related Stories Painter Earl Chuvarsky's When Things Fall Apart Inspired by 2020 Big Ideas: Think 360 Arts Launches Online Arts Education Series 100 Colorado Creatives 4.0: Tony Ortega "[El Día de Los Muertos] helps me take time out...
              The Belmont University professor who lectured Brentwood High students on Monday about privilege said in an email exchange on Tuesday that she believed The Tennessee Star story about that event portrayed her unfairly. As reported, Professor Mona Ivey-Soto introduced herself to students at Brentwood High on Monday as someone who is “very passionate about public education and what it means to transform the world.” “I pray there is a level of discomfort you might feel [because of what I say]. Why am I feeling uncomfortable and why is this pushing my buttons a certain way and what do I need to do to lean into that?” Soto told students. She also said she sees public schools as an instrument of social change. On Tuesday The Star offered Soto the opportunity to provide a complete response to our story published on Monday. In addition, we posed several follow up questions to her. Soto responded to some of our questions, and declined to respond to several others. Specifically, we asked her to clarify whether we...
    Attorney General William Barr told Fox News during an interview on Sunday that mail-in voting “absolutely” opens the flood gates to voter fraud. “Well, there’s a big discussion right now about mail-in voting,” Fox News host Maria Bartiromo said. “Hillary Clinton said, it’s fine, it’s fair.” “Well, it absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud. Those things are delivered into mailboxes. They can be taken out,” Barr responded. “There’s questions about whether or not it even denies a secret ballot, because a lot of the states have you signing the outside of the envelope. So, the person who opens the envelope will know how people voted.” “There’s no – right now, a foreign country could print up tens of thousands of counterfeit ballots, and be very hard for us to detect which was the right and which was the wrong ballot,” Barr continued. “So, I think it can upset and undercut the confidence in the integrity of our elections. If anything, we should tighten them up right now.” WATCH: The Daily Wire, headed by bestselling author and popular podcast host...

Speaking from a finance forum in New York, he outlined global vulnerabilities triggered by the pandemic. “Huger and famine of historic proportions, 60 million more people pushed into extreme poverty, up to half the global workforce, 1.6 billion people, without livelihoods, a loss of $8.5 trillion in global output — the sharpest contraction since the Great Depression of the 1930s: We must avoid it.” The World Health Organization has noted nearly 5.6 million confirmed coronavirus cases globally and the death count has surpassed 350,000.
