    President Joe Biden and his allies are frustrated by a 'lack of respect' toward him from Democrats and the media, a New York Times report suggests President Joe Biden and his top aides are 'irritated' by the cold reception his expected 2024 re-election bid has received from fellow Democrats and the media, a new report suggests on Monday. Biden, who would be 81 years old when he ran for office a second time, has faced a mountain of discussions about potential primary challengers compared to other first-term president this early in office. Lawmakers within the president's own party have been hesitant to get behind him at this point. Earlier this month, firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to say she would back a Biden 2024 campaign during an interview on CNN. 'Should he run again, I think that I - you know, I think it's - it's, we'll take a look at it,' the New York Democrat said. 'But, right now, we need to focus on winning a majority, instead of a presidential election.' West Virginia conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin...
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein rejected reports of colleagues questioning her mental ability, insisting she remains qualified to serve. The 88-year-old rejected allegations from fellow lawmakers that her memory is "rapidly deteriorating," with the California Democrat touting her attendance record as evidence she's up to the task. “I meet regularly with leaders,” Feinstein said in a call with editorial board leaders of the San Francisco Chronicle, which published the original report of her colleagues' accusations. “I’m not isolated. I see people. My attendance is good. I put in the hours. We represent a huge state. And so I’m rather puzzled by all of this.” LAWMAKERS WORRIED DIANNE FEINSTEIN'S MENTAL FITNESS 'RAPIDLY DETERIORATING': REPORT Feinstein, who has held her seat since 1992, added that she does not plan to step down, the outlet noted. Earlier Thursday, the paper cited at least four senators and three former staffers concerned about Feinstein's ability to continue serving. One lawmaker claimed to have had to be reintroduced several times to Feinstein over several hours as they talked policy. The lawmaker also...
    Rep. Madison Cawthorn insisted Thursday that he 'won't bow to the mob' amid a barrage of criticism from within his own party for saying he's been invited to orgies in Washington, D.C. and watched lawmakers do cocaine.  'The radical left, the establishment, and the media want to take me down. Their attacks have been relentless. I won't stop fighting. I won't bow to the mob. They want to silence the America First movement. I'm not going anywhere,' the 26-year-old North Carolina Republican wrote on Twitter, along with a new campaign video.  'The entire left-wing establishment has targeted Madison Cawthorn as public enemy number one. Their smears and attacks are relentless,' the video's narration says. 'They are terrified of him because he's effective. Despite all adversity, Madison Cawthorn continues to stand and fight.'  On Wednesday Cawthorn had a meeting where he was chastised by GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy for the wild remarks. McCarthy said that Cawthorn told him he'd 'exaggerated,' and he 'maybe saw a staffer in a garage 100 yards' away doing drugs.     But Cawthorn has not pulled back the...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar has announced she will run for a third term representing Minnesota's Fifth District - after 29 of her colleagues have opted not to defend their seats in November.  Omar, 39, was first elected in 2019 becoming the first Somali American in Congress. And she quickly rose to prominence as a member of the 'Squad' - a small grouping of ultra liberal lawmakers, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib.  At times she has attracted as much anger from her Democratic colleagues - some of whom rebuked her last year for comments that seemed to liken the US and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban - as Republicans. 'When I first ran for this office there was one thing I kept coming back to. Something I said to myself and to the voters over and over: I believe that a better world is possible,' she said as she announced her intention to run.  'I still believe that.' Her decision comes amid a string of retirements by other Democratic members of Congress. Last week, Rep. Jim Cooper of Tennessee became...

    NAOMI Osaka made a shocking claim about doing press for the French Open. And other tennis professionals are shocked at what she had to say. 3No press for OsakaCredit: Getty Why did Naomi Osaka say she won't do any press conferences during the French Open? Naomi Osaka said she won't do any press conferences during the French Open because she's concerned about her mental health, and the mental health of her other colleagues. "I've often felt that people have no regard for athletes' mental health and this rings true whenever I see a press conference or partake in one," she wrote on Twitter. "We're often sat there and asked questions that we've been asked multiple times before or asked questions that bring doubt into our minds and I'm just not going to subject myself to people that doubt me." She went on to say that it was "nothing personal" against either her other colleagues, or the press itself. However, she felt that her mental health, and the mental health of her colleagues, was most important....
    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reportedly told GOP senators that he “won’t judge anybody for their decision” in regards to objecting to the Electoral College vote, which Congress will count on Wednesday, after previously urging them to refrain from doing so. According to Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND), who recounted the conversation to Politico, McConnell recognized that it is a weighty decision and added that each lawmaker has to “make it yourselves.” “‘I’ve voted twice on declarations of war.’ And he said, ‘This is right up there. But … there’s a lot of noise out there and I won’t judge anybody for their decision,'” Cramer said of McConnell. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) was the first GOP senator to announce his intention to object to Electoral College votes, formally making the announcement last week: Millions of voters concerned about election integrity deserve to be heard. I will object on January 6 on their behalf pic.twitter.com/kTaaPPJGHE — Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) December 30, 2020 On Monday, Hawley revealed left-wing activists protested outside of his home, demanding he drop his Electoral College challenge, while his wife and...
    (CNN)On Tuesday morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly acknowledged the obvious: Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States."The Electoral College has spoken," McConnell said in a statement. "So today, I want to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden. The President-elect is no stranger to the Senate. He has devoted himself to public service for many years. I also congratulate the vice president-elect, our colleague from California, Senator Harris. Beyond our differences, all Americans can take pride that our nation has a female vice president-elect for the first time."And with that simple statement, McConnell took away the safety net for the vast majority of his House and Senate colleagues who have, to date, refused to admit that Biden is the President-elect. See, prior to McConnell, every Republican senator who avoided comment could rest assured knowing that unless and until McConnell came out with a definitive pronouncement about the election winner, they were golden. Because as long as McConnell held out, he would be the focus of every question. And while it might be a little uncomfortable dodging questions...
    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s low-key senior U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi said goodbye to colleagues Wednesday by urging them to focus more on where they agree and not so much on their differences. “There’s a lot of vitriol in our politics and our world right now, but you can stay true to what you believe in without treating others badly,” the Republican said in his farewell address to the Senate. “Nothing gets done when we’re just telling each other how wrong we are,” Enzi continued. “Just ask yourself, has anyone ever really changed your opinion by getting in your face and yelling at you or saying to you how wrong you are? Usually that doesn’t change hearts or minds.” Enzi, 76, is retiring after four terms. The former Eagle Scout, shoe store owner, mayor and state legislator will be succeeded by former U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis, a Republican who won the Senate seat with 73% of the vote. Enzi isn’t among the handful of Republicans who have criticized Donald Trump, even though the political styles of Enzi and the confrontational...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., fired back on Thursday at Democratic colleagues who suggested she and other members of the progressive squad had weakened the party by dragging it too far to the left. "As soon as the election was over ... we have seen the pundits and some of the leaders within the Democratic Party, or even some of our colleagues, who are freshmen, talk about us getting back to basics -- saying you know, the squad -- Alex[andria Ocasio-Cortez], Ilhan, Rashida [Tlaib], all of you have to stop talking about everything you talk about, because we need to get back to basics," Omar said at a rally at Capitol Hill.  "So, I was confused because I thought what is more basic than fighting for clean water? What is more basic than fighting for a breathable planet? What is more basic than trying to make sure we get health care for people?" she asked, before adding a litany of other causes. Her comments were the latest salvo in what appeared to be an ongoing civil war that intensified after Democrats saw disappointing results down ballot in the 2020...

GRAHAM: IF GOP DOESN'T FIGHT, THERE WILL 'NEVER BE ANOTHER REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT ELECTED AGAIN' Spanberger’s victory in one of state’s most competitive races keeps the seat in Democratic hands after she flipped it blue in the 2018 midterm elections.
