    Fox News Sunday anchor Mike Emanuel asked Sen. John Barrasso (R-KY) if problematic Republican candidates like Herschel Walker, Eric Greitens, and Mehmet Oz could cause the GOP to blow their opportunity to win back control of the Senate in the 2022 midterms. “Senator, let’s talk midterms,” said Emanuel to introduce the topic. “Republicans believe they have a golden opportunity to win back the majority. But if candidates like Herschel Walker, Eric Greitens, and Doctor Oz are not winning over the voters, is there a possibility the GOP could blow this opportunity?” The candidates Emanuel listed have all found their names in headlines for less-than-admirable reasons that have often overshadowed other news in their respective senate races. Former football star Walker is trailing in the polls 10 points behind incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) after a series of troubling reports about domestic violence accusations against him, misrepresentations about his background, and bizarre conspiracies and rambling comments. Then there was the secret child Walker had — oh wait, secret children — well, the current count is at three, and he reportedly lied to his own campaign...
    For a moment it was a glimpse of what might have been: Harry and Meghan strolling hand in hand down the aisle of St Paul's, the eyes of the world on their every step. However, when they arrived at their allotted places, they turned not to the box office seats at the front but shuffled instead into a second row with the also-rans of the Royal Family. There they waited, exchanging small talk with Harry's cousins as the real stars of the show arrived, William and Kate accompanying Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. As a piece of theatre, it was compelling. But while this was the public reality of Harry's slide down the royal pecking order, it was overshadowed by the one thing the watching millions were longing for – a sign, however simple, that two brothers who were once so close they could finish each other's sentences could patch up their differences. Sadly that sign did not come. Perhaps a service of national thanksgiving was never going to be the most appropriate venue. But if not then,...
    Q: Last night, we once again lost out to homebuyers in a multiple-offer situation. What is infuriating is that we were not allowed an opportunity to better our purchase offer after its presentation. In each case, our buyer’s agent presents our purchase offer, and within hours, learns that the property is under contract with someone else. Our buyer’s agent insists that we should have received an oral or written counteroffer before the home went under contract. In other words, our buyer’s agent says we should have received a phone call or counteroffer opportunity to “change price, terms or conditions that best suit the seller’s needs.” Regardless, after presenting last night’s offer, our buyer’s agent proactively had our loan officer call the seller’s agent and leave a voicemail lauding our qualification. Another 15 minutes later, our buyer’s agent called the seller’s agent and raised our offer price $20,000 by way of voicemail. Minutes later, our buyer’s agent received a rejection of our offer. Something is amiss. Why are we not getting oral or written counteroffers as our buyer’s agent insists is...
    Designers of Amazon's new household robot have called it a 'disaster that's not ready for release', with one even claiming that it will throw itself down stairs 'if presented the opportunity'. The $1,450 Alexa-powered bot called Astro was unveiled by the company yesterday as an autonomous device that can monitor a person's home while they are not there. It can be remote-controlled to check on pets, people and home security, and provide alerts about any disturbances. But it appears some of its designers are far from convinced the bot will live up to Amazon's billing. One person who worked on it called Astro 'terrible', while another dismissed Amazon's promotional pitch that it could help the elderly as 'absurdist nonsense', according to Motherboard.

    President Donald Trump issued 26 pardons Dec. 23, including one for former border patrol agent Gary Brugman. Brugman was convicted in 2002 of basic deprivation of rights after he was accused of knocking an illegal immigrant to the ground before “striking” another illegal immigrant with his hand, according to the Texas Tribune. Brugman was driving with his mother when he received a call from a White House representative that he was getting pardoned. “My mom thought somebody died,” he told the Daily Caller’s Brianna Lyman, noting that he broke down when he heard the news that he was receiving a pardon.

FDA Announces Major Recall on 18 Dog Food Brands Clint Bowyer: If I didnt have the chance to do TV, Id still be driving in 2021 Clint Bowyer is retiring from NASCAR at the end of the 2020 season because of the opportunity he got to work for Fox.

    Finding a silver lining during 2020 hasn't been easy for most people. But if it wasn’t for the pandemic, the Mad Dog Blues Experience blues band wouldn’t have had the opportunity to complete its double-album, Family Reunion 2020, or have its release party at Dazzle on October 15.   Mark “Mad Dog” Friedman — harmonica player, artist, poet, and bandleader — had planned to tour in 2020. On the road, he would commemorate the night he earned his name, Mad Dog — a night of drinking too much MD 20/20 wine and howling at the moon in college. But then the pandemic hit.

But would a team owner be open to hiring Larson?

    President Donald Trump has no problem with Colin Kaepernick returning to the NFL if he earns another shot. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is back in the news as debates about the national anthem continue to grow, but don’t expect to see POTUS cheering against him. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Trump told Scott Thurman the following Wednesday about Kaepernick potentially playing in the NFL again. If he deserves it, he should. If he has the playing ability. He started off great and then he didn’t end very great in terms of as a player…The answer is absolutely I would. As far as kneeling, I would love to see him get another shot, but obviously, he has to play well. If he can’t play well, I think it would be very unfair.
