    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...
    Watch the latest video at foxnews.com Clark first entered the public fray against CRT and social and emotional learning in December 2020, when she still lived in Nevada. At that time, she filed a lawsuit against a series of Las Vegas charter schools, educational agencies, and school officials for supposedly violating her son's free speech and due process rights. She said they tried to coerce her son into accepting a CRT-based oppressor/oppressed narrative taught in a sociology class required for graduation. "I wasn't going to let my son be alone in standing against it when he did. He said that anybody can be racist. And anybody can be racist. And I don't care what the woke say about that. Racism is being prejudiced of race, not power plus privilege or whatever – whatever parallel language messaging they're using to describe racism now," Clark said. The status of the Nevada lawsuit is unclear. Clark moved with her children to Texas in January 2022. Several months before, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a law which prohibits state public schoolteachers from telling students...
    Admitting there are a large number of shootings every day around the clock U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took to the floor of the House of Representatives Wednesday to complain if Democratic-supported legislation to establish an active shooter alert system becomes law Americans will be “bombarded” with the alerts 24/7. “One has to ask, ‘What is the true purpose of this bill?” an animated Congressman Gaetz said. “Why do the Democrats want to use the power of government to bombard your cell phone with active shooter alerts 24 hours a day, seven days a week?” The legislation would create an active shooter alert system that would function locally, similar to how Amber Alert systems operate.

    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...
    (CNN)Like many children across America, Jayden Perez had practiced what to do in a mass shooting at his school. But the 10-year-old never thought it would happen. On Tuesday, it did. Just 90 minutes after he and his family celebrated his making the honor roll at Robb Elementary, a shooter killed 19 children and two teachers at the school in his small town of Uvalde, Texas.Jayden and a few of his classmates hid in a storage area for backpacks during the shooting. Others in his class were under a table, told CNN. The entire time, he wondered what was going to happen to them. Now, Jayden fears it will happen again, and he and other children are afraid of going back to school."Because after what happened, I don't want to," Jayden said.

    Purcell said she was able to narrowly escape the crowd by running away and hiding in a nearby men's bathroom. But she claimed another one of her club members wasn't so lucky. He was allegedly punched and kicked by protesters. Purcell added that she was fortunate to have escaped and didn't know what would've happened to her had she been caught by the mob. "I was really afraid for my life since they physically assaulted my friend, and like I said, they were screaming, 'No peace!'" she told Fox News. "I don't think they were going to do anything remotely peaceful. They were a very angry mob, and they were clearly saying that they were trying to chase me, that they wanted to capture me." "So I'm afraid of what would have happened if I wasn't able to hide from them," she added. What else? In a statement Friday, Purcell said, "I am unbelievably disturbed that I was chased by a leftist mob and scared for my life on my college campus all...
    Retired U.S. Army Gen. Jack Keane claimed the Biden administration does not want Russia to lose its war on Ukraine, lest President Vladimir Putin lash out in response. Following a Pentagon press conference, Martha MacCallum asked Keane about the U.S. role in assisting Ukraine. “What is the mission here? What’s the U.S. strategy right now?” “You know, it’s a great question,” he replied. “I think, fundamentally, the United States’ underlying strategy in dealing with the war before it began and after it began is not to provoke Putin. It’s an unstated strategy, but it is operating every single day.” Keane noted the U.S. delayed shipments of arms to Ukraine last year and said that it imposed sanctions on Russian officials and oligarchs after Russia invaded. “All of those are not to provoke Putin,” Keane stated. “And the reason is fear of adverse consequence. And then since the war began, no one expected the Russians to perform so poorly and the Ukrainians to actually beat them in ground combat, and they have.” He said Ukraine has a chance to win the war...
    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. In normal times the 72-year-old Igor Igorovych lives in one of the most sought-after streets in Odesa, a stone’s throw from the famous Opera Theatre and with views of the Black Sea. Now his third-floor apartment in the historic centre is surrounded by sand-bag gun emplacements, manned by heavily-armed soldiers and with barbed-wire and tank traps littering the pedestrian walkways.

    LaTosha Brown Millions of disenfranchised minorities have been sitting out elections, and the Republican state legislatures have initiated an avalanche of voter suppression laws to keep it that way while our Democratic leadership has done nothing to respond. In fact, our leaders are defending the filibuster and telling minority activists that they just need to “out-organize” the GOP in lieu of legislation. It’s not just insulting, it’s unrealistic: Republican candidates enjoy sophisticated operations targeting potential voters, while Democratic candidates in key states like Florida are forced to pay exorbitant costs just to access outdated voter data. The truth is that in most red states, the GOP isn’t afraid of the Democratic Party. Who they are afraid of are people like Stacey Abrams and LaTosha Brown. They are people who can’t be placated, compromised, or bought. Despite massive structural obstacles put in place to disenfranchise minority communities, they reached out, registered, and worked tirelessly to turn out ethnic minorities in lower-income communities throughout Georgia. Even worse for the GOP, they provided their playbook for others. Granted, they didn’t work alone, as...
    Far-left, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann blasted Americans unvaccinated against COVID-19 as "afraid," referring to them as "snowflakes" and "morons" in a vulgar, viral video that has accumulated more than two million views.  "Time to stop coddling the people who won’t get the shot," Olbermann said as he received the COVID booster.  "Our first step, you and I, is symbols, the language we use. We call these people ‘vaccine hesitant,’ ‘vaccine skeptics,’ ‘anti-vax,’ we say they’re protesting mandates and passports, they’re making a personal choice. They’re waiting for more information, they’re making a medical decision. Bulls—t! They’re afraid," Olbermann said.  Far-left, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann blasted Americans unvaccinated against COVID-19 in a viral video.  (Photo by Taylor Hill/FilmMagic) OLBERMANN ACCUSED OF MAKING A ‘DEATH THREAT’ TO REASON'S ROBBY SOAVE OVER COVID MASKS "They’re afraid to get vaccinated.

    Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul claimed that people might be hesitant to get the coronavirus vaccine because they fear getting assaulted on the subway. Hochul said Wednesday that she had “heard so many people say” that they were afraid to get the vaccine — not because they actually feared the vaccine itself might be dangerous or ineffective, but because they were apprehensive about the possibility they could be assaulted while they traveled by subway to get it.

    (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." The 20-year-old university student is one of hundreds of LGBTQ people in Afghanistan who are urging advocates outside the country to help them escape the Taliban regime. Two LGBTQ activists outside of Afghanistan -- Ritu Mahendru and Nemat Sadat -- told CNN they had separate lists each with hundreds of names of people...
    HBO’s "Real Time" host Bill Maher blasted the liberal media on Wednesday for "scaring the s--t" out of people during the coronavirus pandemic and said they need to take responsibility for those afraid to leave their homes as a result of fearmongering coverage.  "I have to cite a survey that was in The New York Times, which is a liberal paper so they weren't looking for this answer," Maher said on ABC’s "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"  Bill Maher blasted the liberal media on Wednesday for "scaring the s—t" out of people during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Fifteen years ago, the Department of Defense established a program to combat sexual assault and rape in the ranks. Since then, the military has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on prevention efforts with a stated policy of zero tolerance.  A year-and-a-half long investigation by "CBS Evening News" anchor and managing editor Norah O'Donnell and the CBS News Investigative Unit into sexual assault within the U.S. military uncovered failures by leaders to address the issue. Over the course of the investigation, CBS News spoke with nearly two dozen survivors of sexual assault, whistleblowers who worked for the military's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program and families of suicide victims who say the military grossly mishandled reports of sexual assault. Three women hired to work for the military's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program are speaking out, alleging improper investigations and retaliation firings despite the Pentagon spending tens of millions of dollars on prevention and pledging to tackle the systemic issue.  Amy Braley Franck, Marianne Bustin and Lindsey Knapp were all hired to work for the program, which was established...
    Fox News host Laura Ingraham opened her show on Friday decrying the Biden administration’s "occupation" of the United States. The "Ingraham Angle" host referred to sentiment she has espoused during the first seven months of the Biden presidency: "You can’t govern a country you essentially hate. You can only occupy it, rule over it," she said. "When Biden announced a federal vaccine mandate yesterday, his intention was not to promote more trust or to appeal to our patriotic spirit. This wasn’t about COVID, following the science, or implementing sound policy." Ingraham also ripped into the administration for politicizing the pandemic and for targeting red-state Republican leaders.  "The White House fight is not against COVID, but against the inevitable collapse of Biden’s presidency," she said. "He’s drowning in bad poll numbers and Democrats are bracing for a bloodbath in the mid-terms. Biden’s angry, creepy speech was designed to do one thing — pick a fight with Republican governors in a lame attempt to turn his presidency around and change the topic from weeks of humiliation in Afghanistan.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Republicans could not “handle the truth,” pertaining to what the House Select Committee will discover about the January 6 Capitol riots. Pelosi said, “I believe the work of this committee, in order to retain the confidence of the American people, must act in a way that has no partisanship, is all about patriotism. I’m very proud of the members of the committee. I’m certain they will accomplish that goal. We have to, again, ignore the antics of those who do not want to find the truth. We will find the truth. That truth will have the confidence of the American people because it will be done patriotically and not in a partisan way.” She added, “We’ve had an unprecedented action, an assault, an insurrection against our building on a day that the Constitution required us, by the Constitution, to validate the work of the Electoral College. This was not just any day of the week. This was a constitutionally required day of action for Congress. So, you know,...
    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....

He also claimed President Joe Biden and the Democrats had campaigned on reversing his “very tough stance on Cuba.”...
    This fan wasn’t afraid to share what he thinks about what he thinks the Atlanta Braves should do with manager Brian Snitker. It wasn’t long ago the Braves were just one win away in the 2020 NLCS from reaching their first World Series since 1999. The thought after last season was that Atlanta would be among the teams to beat in the National League following their playoff run, but it’s been anything but that so far. The Braves (42-44) are sitting 4.5 games behind the division-leading Mets, and they are eight games out of a Wild Card spot. Among those on the hot seat might be manager Brian Snitker, and there are plenty of fans who are ready to see the team move on. Among those in favor of a managerial change was this fan who made sure his message would get noticed while sitting behind the Braves’ dugout during a game against the Marlins on Friday.

    CNN has found an explanation for what it calls the nationwide “panic” over Critical Race Theory: white people are “afraid that they might be complicit in racism” and that they will be “blamed for their ancestors’ crimes,” the network reported Tuesday. CNN has been defending Critical Race Theory for nearly a decade, ever since Andrew Breitbart and Breitbart News brought it to national attention. Then as now, CNN portrayed opposition to the theory as the product of white people’s irrational fears, rather than reasoned objection. In a story and video by New York-based correspondent Elle Reeve, and video producers Deborah Brunswick and Samantha Guff, CNN claims, without evidence, that conservatives use “Critical Race Theory” to mean “any instruction about the role of race in America, past or present.” That is what Democrats claim conservatives want, usually as a straw man to deflect criticism, but what conservatives really object to is far more specific — as the story inadvertently reveals. CNN interviews public high school teacher Keziah Ridgeway, who says that “race and racism are literally the building blocks of this country.” That is...
    (CNN)Keziah Ridgeway says she's the only teacher she knows in Philadelphia who teaches critical race theory in public high school -- and she teaches it in her anthropology class, as one framework among many to understand human cultures. But she also teaches African American history, and that's what she thinks the frenzy over critical race theory (CRT) is really about."Critical race theory is a lens, right? It's not being taught in schools," Ridgeway says. It's a theory for understanding the interaction of race and the law, and is mostly taught in graduate school, not elementary school. But conservatives are using the phrase to mean any instruction about the role of race in America, past or present. The explicit message is that such instruction puts White people in danger of being blamed for their ancestors' crimes. Its undercurrent is that it could bring attention to the ways that White people today continue to benefit from racism."Can (CRT) influence the way that some teachers teach? Yeah," Ridgeway says. "But that's a good thing, right? Because race and racism are literally the building...

Taking to US-based sharing app Whisper, transgender people from across the globe have opened up about how their transitioning has impacted their job and relationship with 'close-minded' co-workers. While some who haven't yet come out in the workplace admitted they are afraid of losing their job if anyone finds out, others told how they have been treated as 'less qualified' since being open about their journey. Elsewhere, another who was born male and is transgender but not out, admitted to having an 'odd mix of fear and excitement' in the office, adding she is always afraid someone will notice the 'pantylines' or see the 'lace over the waistband.'

    President Joe Biden floated a new theory about why he believes Latinos are not receiving COVID-19 vaccinations at the same rate as whites. “It’s awful hard to get Latinx vaccinated as well,” Biden said at a Raleigh, North Carolina, community center. “Why? They’re worried that they’ll be vaccinated and deported.” Biden provided no evidence to support his claim. 38% of Latinos have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose, compared to 46% of whites and 33% of African-Americans, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Only 3% of Latinos use the term “Latinx” to describe themselves, a 2019 Pew survey found. Less than 0.5% of Latinos over the age of 65 used the term to describe themselves, and only 23% were familiar with the term. Pew surveyed 3,030 Latinos in December 2019, with a margin of error of 2.9%. Biden also claimed that “it’s been harder to get African-Americans, initially, to get vaccinated, because it used to be that they experimented on them. The Tuskegee Airmen, and others.” That comment was an apparent reference to the Tuskegee Experiment when...
    As one of the most fashion-focused films of the 21st century, The Devil Wears Prada features clothes and accessories from the likes of Chanel, Zac Posen, and — of course — Prada, but the studio had trouble finding designers who would with them over fears of angering Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.    The 2006 film starring Meryl Streep as icy editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly was adapted from Lauren Weisberger's 2003 novel of the same name. The bestseller was a scathing roman à clef of her experience as Wintour's assistant, and fashion insiders were hesitant to get involved.  'There were [initially] no designers of note who would appear in the film,' director David Frankel told Entertainment Weekly during the cast's reunion. They just didn't want to incur the wrath of Anna.'

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi hinted on Sunday she may pursue a select committee on January 6th if the Senate still lacks the votes to pass a commission by Monday. The House passed legislation to form the commission, with a number of Republicans joining Democrats, but Republicans in the Senate blocked it. Many Democrats have said there should still be a significant investigation into the Capitol riots and that the Senate report released last week isn’t enough. Recent reporting said one option Pelosi laid out is having the Senate take another vote, and Pelosi told CNN’s Dana Bash, “I’ll see by Monday if the Senate believes that they could — those who are working in a bipartisan way can get three more votes.” She defended the commission Republicans rejected and said she yielded on much of what Republicans requested “because of the value of the bipartisanship that would spring from that.” “Assuming the commission doesn’t pass, are you saying by Monday, which is tomorrow, you’ll announce a select committee?” Bash asked. “No, I’m not going to announce anything tomorrow. I want to see...

    Former Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile said on ABC’s “This Week” roundtable that Republican lawmakers would not investigate the Capitol riot on January 6 because they were “in the grips” of former President Donald Trump. Brazile said, “This should go beyond our standard politics, the standard politics of which party benefits or which group of American voters will lose. This is about the citadel of our democracy being attacked. It’s about our country being in a state of disbelief. I cannot imagine not looking at all of the underlying factors that led to the march on the Capitol.” She continued, “If we don’t investigate the underlying reasons what happened, and — then we will not prevent it from happening again. That is what is so scary about what happened on January 6.” Brazile said, “But this is an extension of the big lie. It’s the big lie that keeps on, you know, growing that he didn’t — that he didn’t lose the election. He lost the election, and Joe Biden won the election. And because of the big lie,...
    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.

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham opened Wednesday's "Ingraham Angle" slamming the American Left for being unable to quit COVID restrictions, saying that they want to keep America in crisis mode in order to keep people afraid. INGRAHAM: Facts don’t matter to the COVID cling-ons.  The fall showed that private schools, which ultimately did open for in person learning, weren’t vectors for any major COVID outbreaks.  Schools were creative and careful.  Meanwhile, public schools dug their heels in and stayed shut.   … Even as so many children suffered in virtual learning hell, federal apparatchiks kept giving cover to the teachers unions to justify the closures.  And even when there’s good news in COVID land—and there is now—it always comes with an asterisk.   … The lockdowns that Fauci and Friends supported severely compromised the education of American children coast to coast.  Of course, they’re just proxies for the Democrats—people like Fauci—and globalists who long ago revealed their desire to use COVID to "build back better." For the "Great Reset" of capitalism to occur, the pandemic has to roll into the...

    During his Monday night show on Fox News, Tucker Carlson railed against wearing masks outdoors and told viewers to “call the police immediately” if they see children doing so. He also said seeing vaccinated people wear masks outside is like “watching a grown man expose himself in public.” After declaring, “The only people who wear masks outside are zealots and neurotics,” Carlson urged his viewers to approach people they see wearing masks outdoors to ask them “politely but firmly” to remove their masks. Things got even weirder – and potentially more dangerous – when Carlson instructed his viewers to call the police and child protective services if they see children wearing masks outdoors. As for forcing children to wear masks outside, that should be illegal. Your response when you see children wearing masks as they play should be no different from your response to seeing someone beat a kid in Walmart. Call the police immediately, contact child protective services. Keep calling until someone arrives. What you’re looking at is abuse, it’s child abuse and you are morally obligated to attempt...
    After much media anticipation, President Joe Biden held his first press conference this week. Congressional Republicans are likely hoping he never holds another one again. From touting all the "good stuff" his administration could do on infrastructure to skewering newly passed GOP voter suppression laws as "sick," folksy Joe held forth, stepping right into the schism between Republican corporatists and the white working-class voters they're suddenly trying to court—and blowing it wide open. To some extent, Biden just speaks in everyman language. "That's a serious question—right?" he chided one reporter, who asked whether it was “acceptable” to him that one Texas facility housing unaccompanied migrant children was at 1,556% capacity.  "Is it acceptable to me? Come on," Biden said, projecting disbelief that such a question would even be posed. Biden went on to describe the urgent steps he is taking to ease the overcrowding, such as opening up Fort Bliss to house as many as 5,000 children. He also humanized the sheer desperation that must lead parents to send their kids north with hopes for a better life. However, the situation as it stands "is totally unacceptable,"...
    Critics have panned the way reporters behaved during President Biden’s first formal press conference on Thursday, which came 64 days into his administration and was largely devoid of tough questions. "It was almost as though the press was afraid to really challenge the President, so as to not prompt a gaffe or cringe-worthy response," DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News. ARI FLEISCHER RIPS BIDEN OVER BORDER ACCESS COMMENTS: LIKE A 'CO-CONSPIRATOR HIDING EVIDENCE' FROM POLICE The New York Post’s editorial board scolded reporters who behaved more like activists in a scathing column, Fox News contributor Joe Concha called the press corps a "disgrace," and Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway said it was "inappropriate" for a reporter to claim unaccompanied minors and migrant families are heading for the United States because Biden is a "moral and decent" man. "It was quite amazing that nobody asked about COVID and just let Biden's prepared opening remarks suffice. It was good that reporters wanted to talk about the border problems, but they uncritically allowed the President to blame the increased traffic on seasonal factors," McCall said. Biden appeared to...
    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.
    The independence prisoners of Lledoners have entered the jail this Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. after the prison surveillance court number 5 of Catalonia has withdrawn the third degree from the seven prisoners of the ‘procés’. Thus, Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Jordi Turull, Joaquim Forn, Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sànchez have returned to prison after the magistrate has considered the third degree “premature” not having complied, none of them, nor a third part of the sentence and not having assumed their acts as criminal. Josep Rull has not entered jail this Tuesday because he is in the hospital after an operation. Junqueras: “They lock us up because they can’t beat us at the polls” Before entering the prison, the prisoners have said a few words on the stage that Òmnium Cultural has placed at the entrance of the Lledoners prison. Junqueras has pointed out that “if they lock us up, it is because they can’t beat us at the polls and they are afraid of us “and has assured that” we will not give up. “ Cuixart, president of Òmnium,...
    New York : Official data from the Mayor’s Office estimate that undocumented immigrant population in New York City It is close to half a million people, and a large majority of them earn their living doing jobs in the service sector. And since last February 2, the green light was given so that restaurant employees, deliveries and taxi drivers could be vaccinated, many have still not taken advantage of this opportunity to protect themselves against COVID-19, for fear believing that his migratory status it will be revealed when they go to an immunization center. That is the case of Salvadoran food delivery man Eugenio Laprea, 28 years old, who shared The newspaper who prefers not to have access to any type of hospital or vaccination center, because He is “panicked” by his irregular immigration status. “The less one has to be giving their data and approaching public things the better. One for so many years has learned to distrust. I prefer not to get vaccinated. If I have survived all this year, what difference does it make, “said the...
    Daniel Prude: Protesters gather in Rochester streets after announcement that no police officers will be charged Ghana receives worlds first doses of free Covax vaccines When I was staying at home with my toddler, I went to the playground and the library every day, where I developed a mom posse of sorts. We spent every day chatting about our lives, and of course, our toddlers. Since our kids had all been around their peers since they were babies, it seemed strange when one of the little girls suddenly seemed to be afraid of the other children. © Getty / PeopleImages If Your Toddler Seems Afraid of Other Children, They Might Be Highly Sensitive We noticed that when too many toddlers showed up at the playground, this little girl would stop freely exploring and take respite in her moms arms, sometimes even crying so much that they had to leave. In my own efforts to help, I tried to teach my daughter how to respect other people's boundaries or adjust her behavior to make her friends comfortable. These attempts did...
    Mario Tama/Getty Images About half of New York Times employees are uncomfortable expressing themselves around their colleagues, according to a company survey. Responding to the statement, “There is a free exchange of views in this company; people are not afraid to say what they really think,” 51 percent of employees responded affirmatively. The other 49 percent said they were not comfortable expressing their opinions. The poll was conducted by the Times and obtained by The New York Post. “Although the majority of us feel well-informed, many indicated that differing viewpoints aren’t sought or valued in our work,” the Times noted in an internal assessment of the study. “Relatedly, we saw some negative responses on whether there’s a free exchange of views in the company, and scored below the benchmark on this question.” The results come after a year in which more liberal Times staffers sought to jettison moderate colleagues from the publication. Editorial page editor James Bennet resigned in June after one of his staffers published an op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) calling for the National Guard to be deployed to maintain...
    House GOP knows Greene is a problem — but they're afraid to do anything about her
    Democrats and their allies in Big Tech and the media are doing more than just attacking their political opponents, host Tucker Carlson argued Friday on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." The party is also causing deeper divisions in society that will increasly destabilize the country, he said. People like Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., have made various public statements labeling Republicans as extremists -- with Ocasio-Cortez claiming the GOP has "white supremacist sympathizers" within its ranks, and Brennan claiming "domestic violent extremists" in the form of far-right supporters of President Trump are more dangerous than Al Qaeda. "They're much more pervasive. Their numbers are much larger," Brennan said in an MSNBC clip played by Carlson. Brennan went on to note that many Americans who identify as right of center also tend to own personal firearms. "The former CIA director has isolated the real problem -- it's you," Carlson said. "Anyone who disagrees with [top Biden adviser] Susan Rice is worse than Usama bin Laden; and more dangerous. These people, meaning you, 'have the weapons. These terrorists'." "By 'terrorists,' they mean tens of millions of American citizens who might have a...
    The 58-year-old woman is said to have died three years ago from authorities at a home near Lyon. “The court clerks came and told me about the dead Jean Pouch. Those documents were sent to my husband Pierre-Jean, who was described as a widow, and to my son Hugo, who was referred to as an orphan,” Pouchin recalled. At first she thought it was a joke. However, the court declared that the former employee of his company was actually dead as he had not been awarded nearly 370 thousand crowns as compensation for the loss of profits. The case dates back to 2004, but the tribunal never recovered the amount due. The call came thirteen years later, when authorities recorded his death. “After my death, I realized that the heirs were a husband and a son and that they had to pay me an amount that seemed astronomical,” he says. Since then, her life has become a nightmare. They are afraid to buy, drive a car or go out. Her lawyer had to set her up with a fake credit...
