    Dear Amy: Recently there was an infidelity issue (on my part) between my husband and me. We are working on our marriage, and things appear to be getting much better. When it first happened, he turned to his friends pretty upset and had the majority of them block me, etc. His best friend doesn’t speak to me much anymore, but I did reach out letting him know that I do love him and his girlfriend and don’t want to lose them and hope they don’t hate me. He responded, stating that he isn’t making any judgment calls until he gives it time to see how my husband is feeling. When it comes time for me to see them (they all live out of state), do you have any advice to not feel uncomfortable, awkward or scared? I’m afraid they will hate me and will just be glaring at me with hatred the whole time.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday appeared on Fox News to push back on accusations he is stepping away from his role in the Biden administration to avoid an investigation, and said he has 'nothing to hide.' Fauci was interviewed by Fox host Neil Cavuto, and said he was 'not even a little bit' concerned about a possible investigation if Republicans were to take power in the midterms.  'I have nothing to hide,' said Fauci, who currently serves as the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. 'I can defend everything I've done and every decision I've made,' said Fauci. 'So, I'm not afraid of that at all.'  Republicans have put him on the top of their witness list should they win control of the House and Senate in November's election, having mooted plans to launch a probe into Fauci's handling of the virus crisis.  Fauci also took time to address rumors he is only retiring for a $400,000 pension, and laughed at the idea, saying 'I don't know' where...

    MSNBC anchor Joy Reid said Monday on her show “The ReidOut” that Republicans were so filled with “rage and fear” they don’t want any American who disagrees with them to feel safe anywhere in the country. Reid said, “The concept of safe spaces which the Merriam Webster dictionary describes as a place intended to be free of bias, conflict, criticism or potentially threatening actions, ideas or conversations. Like safe spaces for sexual assault survivors, transgender, etc., but for the idea on the right idea is something more threatening. Spaces online and in real life where conservatives feel they get shut down for voicing unpopular views and where political correctness and wokeness force them to walk on pins and needles or just keep quiet for fear of getting canceled. To put it mildly, they don’t like safe spaces, OK, they really, really hate them.” She continued, “What’s happened on the right and specifically inside the Republican Party in the last couple of decades is that their sense of victimhood and frankly fear and rage at an increasingly diverse country where they...
    Defiant residents living on the front line in Odesa are refusing to leave their homes and digging in to protect themselves from an imminent Russian invasion.  While Kremlin warships test the port’s defences with regular bombardments volunteers are gathering supplies for Ukraine’s armed forces and old people are keeping calm and carrying on.

    (CNN)Growing up as a teenager in Afghanistan, Rabia Balkhi felt lucky.Despite being born in a country with a long history of discrimination against its LGBTQ people, Balkhi's family accepted her as a lesbian.Now Balkhi says that rare acceptance has put all their lives at risk, as the new Taliban leadership in Kabul unleashes a wave of physical violence and fear on Afghanistan's gay, lesbian and transgender population. As soon as the Taliban recaptured Kabul in August, Balkhi and her family went into hiding. The names of Balkhi and five other LGBTQ people inside Afghanistan who spoke to CNN for this story have been changed for safety reasons -- Balkhi chose to use the name of a famous female Afghan poet who she considered "brave" and a "hero."

    Texas Democrats say they aren't afraid of Governor Greg Abbott's threats to arrest them for fleeing the state to break a quorum and avoid voting on Republicans' election legislation. 'I'm not worried about the threat of being arrested,' Texas State Representative Jasmine Crockett told CNN on Monday morning. 'I don't worry probably because I know the law,' she continued. 'I've not committed a crime, so I can't get arrested.'  Trey Martinez Fischer, a fellow Democratic member of the Texas State House, said Tuesday that the group of around 60 lawmakers plan to wait out the full 30-day legislative session in Washington D.C. 'This is the risk that we take to stand up for democracy,' Martinez Fisher told CNN when asked about the potential of Abbott sending law enforcement after them. He said the fleeing Democrats are working on setting up meetings on Capitol Hill after fleeing Texas on Monday and breaking quorum in order to block Republican-proposed voting rights laws from passing. A quorum is the minimum number of members needed to conduct legislative proceedings and assure they are valid....

    R. R. Reno is the editor of First Things, a monthly religious magazine with a circulation of 30,000. A Christian magazine editor has revealed he'll no longer hire graduates from Ivy League colleges because they're too woke, self-important or scared to speak out against cancel culture even if they don't believe in it.  R. R. Reno is the editor of First Things, a monthly religious magazine with a circulation of 30,000.   In an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Monday, he said used to jump at the chance to hire from Ivy Leagues, but now it turns him off applicants.  He said from his experience, kids from colleges like Rutgers in New Jersey are 'as talented but less self-important than Ivy Leaguers' and 'more likely to accept the authority of those more experienced'.  'I’m not inclined to hire a graduate from one of America’s elite universities.  'That marks a change. A decade ago I relished the opportunity to employ talented graduates of Princeton, Yale, Harvard and the rest. Today? Not so much,' Reno wrote. RELATED ARTICLES Previous...
    Liz Cheney has claimed some Republicans voted against impeaching Donald Trump because they were 'afraid for their lives' as she admitted she regrets voting for him in the 2020 election and warned he poses an 'ongoing danger' to America. Cheney told CNN's Jake Tapper Friday that several GOP members of Congress told her they feared for their safety in the lead-up to February's vote to impeach Trump for inciting the January 6 Capitol riot.  The Wyoming Representative said she believes some fell in line with the wider party because of these concerns and insisted more lawmakers were in favor of his impeachment 'than are willing to say so'. Cheney was ousted from her role as House Republican leader this week amid a backlash from staunch Trump allies. The ex-number three in the party was one of just 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for his role in the violent insurrection. Since then, she has been a vocal critic of the former president and his efforts to overturn the result of the presidential election.  Liz Cheney told CNN Friday (above)...
    Donald Glover has claimed that people are creating 'boring' and less 'experimental' television and films because they are 'afraid of getting cancelled'.  The 37-year-old rapper, who goes by the name Childish Gambino, returned to Twitter after an extended break Tuesday to take aim at 'cancel culture' in the entertainment industry.  Glover said he had noticed social media discussions from people who were 'tired' of 'reviewing boring stuff (tv & film)' and claimed the fault lies with creators being scared of being 'canceled'.   His comments come just days after Glover was sued for alleged copyright infringement over his Grammy-hit This is America.   Donald Glover (pictured) has claimed that people are creating 'boring' and less 'experimental' television and films because they are 'afraid of getting cancelled' 'saw people on here havin a discussion about how tired they were of reviewing boring stuff (tv & film),' Glover began in the first in a series of tweets. 'we're getting boring stuff and not even experimental mistakes(?) because people are afraid of getting cancelled'. He added in a follow-up tweet: 'so they feel like they...
    These are small victories, but the river is growing little by little. Supported in the United States by Amal Clooney and by the Yazda association, the Yazidis obtained the recognition of the genocide they lived from the summer of 2014 by the United States, Canada, France, Armenia , Portugal, Armenia and Australia. In Belgium, the majority and the opposition are refining the resolution texts.
    MSNBC’s Joy Reid went on a fiery rant on Wednesday night against the mob of Trump supporters that violently clashed with police and stormed the U.S. Capitol Building. Reid recalled Freddie Gray’s death several years ago and described in some graphic detail how Gray died while in police custody, before noting the massive police response at the time and how severe it was. “What terrified me in those moments in Baltimore were not the marchers,” she said. “I was afraid of the cops, because they were menacing.” She contrasted that with the police response to the violent mob of Trump supporters: “The reason that these people were so unafraid of the cops… the reason they could so easily and casually with their cameras on film themselves throwing things through the walls of our Capitol, our property, going inside the Capitol, sitting in Speaker Pelosi’s office… they know that they are not in jeopardy because the cops are taking selfies with them, walking them down the steps to make sure they’re not hurt, taking care with their bodies, not like they...
    An Ohio man wants to spread a message of support for the police and courage in the face of the pandemic by walking around his state carrying flags with him. Conrad Allen, 52, of Putnam County carries a "thin blue line" flag, a flag supporting President Donald Trump, and a United States flag 15 to 20 miles each day around the perimeter of the state.

He is a veteran, having served on active duty as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army. ...
    CARMEL VALLEY – A woman may have permanent damage to her left eye after being injured while walking to her car. Meghan Campbell, 24, had just left a friend’s apartment in Carmel Valley, California, when a dark-colored truck pulled up next to her and threw an egg at her, she said. “It ended up hitting me in the face, so I fell to the ground,” Campbell said. “It hit me and my vision on the (left) side went away. I was extremely disoriented. ” Campbell said all he remembers hearing after that was a laugh from the truck before leaving. His friends took him to the emergency room, he said. “What they discovered was that I had corneal abrasions, probably from the eggshell, my eye was dilated from the trauma, and I had an orbital shock fracture,” Campbell said. Doctors told Campbell that they will not know the extent of damage to his eye for a month. She said she was terrified that her vision could be permanently damaged.

    Dear Amy: During our marriage, my ex-husband rarely made time for us (although he was great with the kids when he was with them). Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)  I would take our kids on vacations without him because he always had something better to do. I filed for divorce and moved out of his home over two years ago. I made the decision to do this without telling my parents and siblings because I knew, even though they could see how unhappy I was, that they would not be supportive. To this day they continue to invite him to family holidays and events but become upset with me when I refuse to attend.

    HOUSTON — In the isolation wing of a U.S. detention center for immigrant families, a woman from El Salvador says her 8-year-old son asks her if they are going to die. With no toys in their room and no ability to leave the room except to use the bathroom, the boy sleeps much of the day and otherwise watches television news that includes the rising death toll from the coronavirus, according to his mother. They are quarantined after coming into contact with a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19. They have not had any symptoms of infection themselves but had not been tested as of Monday afternoon, she said. In rooms near them are two other mothers, including one with a child that just turned 2. “I tell him we’re not going to die,” said Maria, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition that her last name be withheld because she fears retribution in her country of origin if she is deported. “We feel anguished. We can’t do anything for our own lives or the lives of...
    The Southeast regional director of the International Brotherhood Of Police Officers Vincent Champion tore into the legal prosecution Thursday that has charged former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe with murder. “We believe that the officer has not been given his due process. We believe this is nothing more but a political move by the district attorney,” Vincent Champion told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Rolfe was fired and charged following the lethal shooting of Rayshard Brooks, who was killed after police found him asleep in his car. The conversation between Brooks and the police began in a civil tone but a video appeared to show Brooks taking the officer’s taser. (RELATED: Atlanta Mayor Says Police Morale Is ‘Down Ten-Fold’: Police Department Denies Rumours Of Officers Calling Sick) Champion said he has never seen anyone charged with murder “without a full investigation.” “The police officers are definitely scared … they are afraid to do their job at this point, not because they are afraid of how to do it. They’ve been trained to do that. They know what they’re doing,” Champion...
    The current emphasis on retrofitting workplaces to enable social distancing and including safety measures like plexiglass sneeze guards to protect workers has done little to quell employees' anxiety over returning to the office amid the coronavirus pandemic.  Half of American professionals are reluctant to go back to the office, citing health concerns, even as state and local governments begin to lift lockdown orders, giving more workers the green light to return to their workplaces, according to a new survey from Korn Ferry, a consulting firm. The Korn Ferry survey took place in early June and includes responses from 1,044 professionals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last month released recommendations for companies as they plan to bring workers back to offices, including mandating that workers wear face masks, conducting meeting outdoors and discouraging colleagues from congregating in tight spaces.  Coronavirus: The Race To Respond Half of American workers afraid to return to the office Oklahoma officials express concern about Trump's Tulsa rally Texas governor says young people are driving coronavirus surge Fauci says "we're still in a first wave"...

    Half of Americans have a kink they’d like to try with their partner — but haven’t yet brought it up, according to new research. A survey of 2,000 sexually-active Americans found it takes the average respondent a little over three months to feel comfortable bringing up a personal sexual interest to their partner. The top reason they wait? Results found 40 percent haven’t brought their kink up because they’re worried their partner will leave, while the same number are worried about being judged. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of the sex-positive lingerie brand Thistle and Spire, the survey delved into respondents’ “sexplorations” and how comfortable respondents feel with their partner. The survey found open communication is essential — especially when trying something new. SWNS Forty-one percent of respondents have been asked to try something that made them feel uncomfortable. Of those, 85 percent were comfortable letting their partner know they felt uneasy and 25 percent said they tried it eventually. And 75 percent of respondents are comfortable letting their partner know when they’re unsatisfied in bed, which is important, seeing...
    I’m a 65-year-old black man, and I have literally spent most of my life doing everything possible to avoid encounters with police. My mother warned me when I was about 12 to beware of the police because even though I was a good boy, I could be killed with impunity. I’d be just another dead black boy supposedly mixed up in guns, drugs or gangs. Gregory L. Moore (Courtesy photo) I wish I wasn’t afraid of the police. I have never had a cop live on my street.  I’ve known only two law enforcement officers socially; one is a former FBI agent who I met a decade ago and is a great guy, and the other is a black cop who I played street basketball with in the 1980s. The vast majority of police never fire a weapon, but the bad deeds rightly get more attention because of the suffering. As a journalist I did some of those stories. I wrote about suburban police officers using sap gloves to beat suspects. I wrote about a white cop who shot and...
    As Democrats label Senate Republicans' authorization of subpoenas in their probe into the origin of the Russia investigation as politically motivated, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson wondered Friday what they were so afraid to uncover. In an interview on "America's Newsroom" with host Sandra Smith, Johnson noted that while America is admired for its peaceful transitions of power from one administration to the next, "unfortunately, that is not what [it looks like] happened in 2016 [to] 2017." GRAHAM SLAMS DEMOCRATS WHO CRITICIZED SENATE HEARINGS ON RUSSIA INVESTIGATION: 'THIS IS HYPOCRISY RUN AMOK' "We saw a real crush in that process. And, it began before the election where you had the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign pay for foreign fabricated opposition research called the Steele Dossier. That dossier was then used to start investigations and corruptly apply for a FISA application against Carter Page. We saw the unmaskings. We saw the defensive briefings or transition briefings used for investigative purposes," he pointed out. "There was so much corruption of that process and that's what we need to get to the bottom of. We have to let the American people know what happened so it never happens again." Sen.

    Democratic lawmakers are not standing up against criminal activity during protests against the death of George Floyd because they don't want to alienate black voters ahead of the November presidential election, American civil rights Attorney Leo Terrell asserted Friday evening. In an interview on "Hannity" with host Sean Hannity, the radio talk show host noted that while Floyd's death was a "tragedy" and there is a "universal acceptance" that his murder was wrong, those protesting his death in cities like New York and Minneapolis are using Floyd's death as an excuse to break the law. MINNEAPOLIS COP WHO KNELT ON HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN ARRESTED "I am disappointed, shocked that there has been no Democratic lawmaker in the last 72 hours who have focused on the criminal activities of these individuals who are not protesting," he stated. "These are criminals and they are breaking the law using the guise of caring about George Floyd." "And, I encourage all you Democratic lawmakers, all you lawmakers, to stand up and criticize these criminals." In this May 29, 2020, photo, a check-cashing business burns...
