    THE bodies of two members of the same family were found miles apart from one another as horrific details emerge from the disturbing tragedy. Jason Wray is believed to have killed his wife, Jessica, before taking his own life on Sunday in a brutal murder-suicide that ended with him walking in front of a semi-truck on the interstate. 4Jessica Wray was brutally stabbed to death at the hands of her husband, Jason, in a horrific murder-suicide on SundayCredit: Facebook/jessica.d.wray 4The couple shared three children togetherCredit: Facebook/jessica.d.wray Officers arrived at the scene, responding to reports of a dead body at the couple’s home.

    Los Angeles Clippes point guard, John Wall got candid about his mental health struggles during the Covid pandemic in a recent interview. The video circulating Twitter via ClutchPoints shows Wall discussing the past three years of his life at a recent charity event with The Salvation Army. Darkest place I ever been in, I mean, at one point in time, I thought about committing suicide. I mean, it’s tearing my achilles. My mom being sick. My mom passed. My grandma passed a year later. All this in the midst of COVID at the same time. Me going to the chemotherapy therapy, then sitting in there, uh, me seeing my mom take her last breath, wearing the same clothes for three days straight laying on the couch beside her.

Like all those sacrifices and not having a great support family behind me, my team, the mother of my kids has been great. My two boys is my motivation for me. So like...
    Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) refused to answer whether he would support a third White House bid by former President Donald Trump Wednesday during an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash. Scott joined The Lead, where he and Bash discussed the Jan. 6 Capitol attack in relation to the South Carolina Republican’s new book, America, a Redemption Story: Choosing Hope, Creating Unity. After Scott explained the chaos of the events of Jan. 6 from his own perspective, Bash asked him if he believes Trump is responsible for the riot. “Do you believe that former president Donald Trump was responsible in any way, shape, or form for that attack in which you call yourself and fellow senators hunted?” Scott was unwilling to blame Trump, and said those who participated in ransacking the Capitol did so of their own volition. Scott said: I think I’m really clear in my book that I do put the blame on the people who came into the Capitol and made me feel like I was hunted. I put the blame squarely on their shoulders. One of the things I...

    (CNN)Ten GOP senators are needed to join all 50 Democrats in order to overcome a legislative filibuster in support of the House-passed bill to codify same-sex marriage into federal law.

    A conservative Disney employee said the company is 'making a terrible miscalculation' for supporting the 'Don't Say Gay' as Republican staff and parkgoers disagree and it could cause a boycott.  Jose Castillo, who is also running for Congress in Florida, said his employer's decision to back the controversial Parental Rights Bill, which has been dubbed the 'Don't Say Gay' bill, could be 'bad for business' as not everyone is a 'raging liberal' who works there. 'There's this misconception that everyone at Disney are just raging liberals and I think that can't be farther from the truth,' Castillo said on Fox News on Wednesday. 'I have tons of people that are working for the Walt Disney Company that reach out to me daily on social media [that are Republican].' He said Disney's position on the bill could be 'bad for business' as its saying 'our goal is for the law to be repealed by the legislator or struck down by the courts.' Jose Castillo, a Disney employee and Congress hopeful, said Disney is 'making a terrible miscalculation' by supporting the 'Don't Say...
    Ukrainian boxing star Wladimir Klitschko has hit out at Fox News host Tucker Carlson and right-wing commentator Candace Owens for criticizing US support for Ukraine during Russia's invasion. The former two-time heavyweight world champion boxer said that those who are 'passively observing' Ukraine and not standing with the country's people after Russia invaded 'have blood on their hands'. Whilst Carlson has repeatedly questioned why defending Ukraine is important and even asked why the US should side with them and not Vladimir Putin, Owens has gone even further by openly parroting the Russian President's false narrative that was used as a justify the war. Klitschko, the brother of Kyiv's mayor Vitali, told Newsmax host Eric Bolling that those who are not supporting Ukraine are by default standing in opposition to the country in their fight against Putin. He was responding to a question by Bolling about what he would say to a 'small group' of Americans who believe Russia's invasion of Ukraine is 'not America's problem', whilst naming Owens and Carlson as examples. Klitschko, who alongside his brother has taken up arms...
    Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty Images Gigi Hadid has vowed to donate her earnings from the fashion shows she walked in Fall 2022 to those suffering in both Ukraine and Palestine. “Having a set Fashion Month schedule has meant that my colleagues and I often present new fashion collections during heartbreaking and traumatic times in history,” she wrote in a Monday Instagram. “We don’t have control over most of our work schedules, but we would like to walk ‘for’ something.”   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid) Hadid credited model Mica Argañaraz for inspiring her donation, as the Argentinian model had previously pledged to donate part of her fashion week earnings to help Ukrainian organizations. “Following in the footsteps of my friend [Argañaraz], I am pledging to donate my earnings from the Fall 2022 shows to aid those suffering from the war in Ukraine, as well as continuing to support those experiencing the same in Palestine,” Hadid wrote in her caption. “Our eyes and hearts must be open to all human injustice.” “May we all see...
    Russian gymnast Ivan Kuliak says he has no regrets over wearing a symbol in support of the invasion of Ukraine on the podium following a World Cup event in Doha on Saturday. Kuliak attached a letter 'Z' to his chest before receiving his bronze medal in the parallel bars, an event won by Ukraine's Illia Kovtun.  The letter has been seen daubed on the sides of Russian tanks, and has come to be regarded as a sign of support for the invasion. The 20-year-old's move was condemned as 'shocking behaviour' by the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG), which has asked its Gymnastics Ethics Foundation to launch an investigation. But Kuliak, who faces the prospect of a lengthy ban, was unrepentant on Tuesday, telling Russia Today: 'If there was a second chance and I had a choice whether to go out with the letter "Z" on my chest or not, I would do the same. 'I saw it on our military and looked at what this symbol means. It turned out to be "for victory" and "for peace". I just wanted to...
    Sunday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) called out the “hypocrisy” of the left’s response to the Freedom Convoy in Canada and the upcoming convoy in the United States, which has been dubbed as the “People’s Convoy,” to protest against vaccine mandates. Cotton noted on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that members of the left have “encouraged” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to use a federal Emergencies Act against the peaceful protesters. He argued those same people were marching and celebrating Black Lives Matter in protests which turned into riots. “[The left has] encouraged Justin Trudeau’s administration in Canada’s response and what Justin  Trudeau himself has done,” Cotton advised. “When it was radical environmentalists shutting down pipelines in Canada, Justine Trudeau called for patience and dialogue. Now that it’s conservative truckers protesting his COVID-19 mandates, he’s invoking emergency powers and using authorities that are typically designed for terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, and Joe Biden and liberals in America are cheering them on.” “Remember, these are the very same liberals, of course, who marched in the streets and celebrated the BLM rioters...
    President Joe Biden said he has done a deep dive on 'four people' he is considering as his first Supreme Court nominee and said he wants someone in the mode of retiring Justice Stephen Breyer.    'I've taken about four people and done the deep dive on them - meaning this thorough background checks, and see if there's anything in the background that would make them not qualify,' he told NBC's Lester Holt. Holt interviewed Biden in Culpepper, Va., on Thursday afternoon when the president was there to talk about prescription drug prices. The interview is set to air on Super Bowl Sunday but NBC released some early excerpts. Biden told NBC he thinks whomever he chooses can get the support of some Republican senators. 'I think we'll whomever I think we'll get a vote from the Republican side for the following reason - I'm not looking to make an ideological choice,' Biden said.  'I'm looking for someone that plays Judge Breyer with the same kind of capacity Judge Breyer had with an open mind, who understands it constitution interprets it...
    VIDEO2:2702:27Research organization discusses China and Russia's partnership against the U.S.Street Signs Asia Russia and China may be closer than they've been in decades, but the two countries don't have identical interests, according to the director of the Wilson Center's Kissinger Institute on China and the United States. Robert Daly said Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have shared interests coupled with "very different diplomatic styles and some different goals." His comments came days after the two leaders announced a "no limits" partnership in Beijing on the day of the Winter Olympics opening ceremony. That joint declaration may be a milestone in the relationship between Russia and China, Daly told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia" on Monday. "This came very close to being the announcement of a quasi-alliance," he said, adding that the two countries are "standing shoulder to shoulder" to counter the United States, but that "China has a long standing non-alliance policy — so they don't want to use the word ally." "They are now closer together than ever, probably than for the past 70 years,"...
    Republicans have adamantly fought against President Joe Biden's infrastructure plan but now a growing list of them are taking credit for the funding provided by the same plan they opposed. According to HuffPost, over the last several days, several Republican lawmakers have issued press releases praising funding that will be used to improve United States highways and other infrastructure. On Wednesday, January 19, Rep. Ashley Hinson (R-Iowa.) described the $829 million in funding for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to improve infrastructure along the Mississippi River as “game-changing.” “Over 60 percent of our nation’s grain exports travel through this lock and dam system, and it is a massive economic engine for the entire state,” Hinson said in a statement. “That’s why I helped lead a bipartisan group of my colleagues in urging the Administration to prioritize funding for these essential upgrades," she added, "I’ll always fight to ensure Iowans’ taxpayer dollars are reinvested at home in Iowa." However, Hinson's latest remarks differ vastly from her stance back in November. At the time, she described the package as...
              by Kyle Hooten   Hy-Vee shoppers who want to defund the police are upset that the popular Midwestern grocery chain has introduced armed security guards amidst rising crime. Hy-Vee operates 285 stores in the Midwest, several of which are located in Minneapolis — where the City Council has allocated funds away from the police and into the Health Department to fund “civilian violence interrupters,” per MPR. However, Hy-Vee customers who support such efforts to defund the police are unhappy with how the grocery store has chosen to protect itself amidst a growing trend of mass thefts from big box retailers. “As part of its ongoing efforts to ensure the health and safety of both its customers and employees, Hy-Vee is introducing its new Hy-Vee Retail Security team to retail stores across its eight-state region,” the company announced earlier this week. A video distributed by the grocery store shows that their new security employees are armed and equipped with body cameras and utility belts. This video has generated a frenzy of former Hy-Vee shoppers saying they will buy their food somewhere else — many of whom ironically support...
    Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images. The Bulwark and The New Republic published a joint letter on Wednesday urging all Americans to defend their democracy against the Republican Party and its “Trumpist authoritarianism.” However, in that effort, the Democratic Party (and the Never Trump movement) are now simultaneously working to subvert American democracy. The letter stated: Unimpeded by [Donald] Trump’s defeat in 2020 and unfazed by the January 6 insurrection, Trump and his supporters actively work to exploit anxieties and prejudices, to promote reckless hostility to the truth and to Americans who disagree with them, and to discredit the very practice of free and fair elections in which winners and losers respect the peaceful transfer of power. The letter, which was cosigned by dozens of journalists, writers, and academics ranging from Max Boot to Noam Chomsky, also said, “We vigorously oppose ongoing GOP efforts to change state election laws … to empower state legislatures to interfere with the certification of election results… and we oppose the unending promotion of unprofessional and phony ‘election audits.’” Before ending with a call for “for citizens of all...
    President Joe Biden's support among independents has collapsed, new polling shows, which could be a bad sign for Democrats going into the 2022 midterms.  A new Grinnell College National Poll found that while Biden received the support of 54 per cent of independents during last year's presidential election, that support now stands at 28 per cent.  That means that if the 2024 presidential election were held today - and it was a rematch between Biden and former President Donald Trump - both candidates would receive 40 per cent of the vote, while 14 per cent of the American electorate would choose someone else.  President Joe Biden has lost support among independents, while former President Donald Trump has gained that support, meaning the Democrat and Republican would get the same percentage of voters if the 2024 election was held today Trump (left) gets less support among Republicans than Biden (right) does among Democrats, but Biden's popularity with independents has collapsed since last year's presidential race, new polling shows   Biden polls better among Democrats than Trump does Republicans.  Biden receives the support...
    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy effectively endorsed same-sex marriage on Thursday when asked if his position on the issue has changed. "Look — same-sex marriage is the law of the land, and it's what America holds, and that's the law of the land,” McCarthy said. “I support the law of the land. I don’t see how that’s different. I don’t see how that’s news.” After GOP Rep. Liz Cheney told @60Minutes she was "wrong" to oppose same-sex marriage, reporter asks Kevin McCarthy if his views have changed.McCarthy: "Look — same-sex marriage is the law of the land, and it's what America holds, and that's the law of the land." pic.twitter.com/xgEj4Fimuw— CBS News (@CBSNews) September 30, 2021 HOUSE REPUBLICAN LEADERS PRESS MEMBERS TO NOT HELP SQUABBLING DEMOCRATS PUSH INFRASTRUCTURE TO FINISH LINE The top House Republican’s position was questioned after Wyoming Republican Rep.

    A whopping two-thirds of Republicans in the South favor seceding from the United States while nearly half of Democrats in the Pacific region and almost 40 percent in the Northeast say the same, according to a new survey. Support for secession is also considerable among independents in the Midwest and Great Lakes regions, where 43 percent say they would favor breaking away and forming their own country. Half of independents in the South also favor secession while 43 percent of Republicans in the Rocky Mountain states share the same view. The survey, which was conducted by Bright Line Watch, polled 2,750 respondents. The figures were published in the June 2021 edition of the Bright Line Watch Survey Wave 15 Dataset.

                      by Andrew Trunsky  Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema reaffirmed her opposition to abolishing the 60-vote Senate filibuster, rebuffing progressives who have decried the legislative rule and called for its removal. Sinema argued that scrapping the Senate rule would erode “democracy’s guardrails,” writing in The Washington Post that doing so would lead the nation to “lose much more than we gain.” “It’s no secret that I oppose eliminating the Senate’s 60-vote threshold,” Sinema wrote. “I held the same view during three terms in the U.S. House, and said the same after I was elected to the Senate in 2018.” “If anyone expected me to reverse my position because my party now controls the Senate, they should know that my approach to legislating in Congress is the same whether in the minority or majority,” she continued. Sinema also argued that the filibuster was essential to ensure moderation and compromise, and a necessary safeguard against wild, sweeping policy by the majority over and objections from the minority. “Would it be good for our country if we [passed...

    Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D- AZ) penned an op-ed in the Washington Post Monday night defending her opposition to killing the filibuster. The number of Democrats calling for the Senate to nuke the filibuster is growing, as frustration about Republican opposition grows, but both Sinema and Joe Manchin have been very publicly about opposing that. In her op-ed, Sinema touts the “bipartisan approach” she has taken to get legislation passed, and says, “Lasting results — rather than temporary victories, destined to be reversed, undermining the certainty that America’s families and employers depend on. The best way to achieve durable, lasting results? Bipartisan cooperation.” She points to Democrats utilizing the filibuster when they were in the minority and argues that she’s being consistent and wants it to stay in place to “protect against attacks on women’s health, clean air and water, or aid to children and families in need” in the future. It’s no secret that I oppose eliminating the Senate’s 60-vote threshold. I held the same view during three terms in the U.S. House, and said the same...

    A majority within all partisan groups, including Republicans, now support same-sex marriage, according to a poll from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) released on Tuesday. In 2019, less than half of those who identify as Republican — 47 percent — backed gay marriage, but the survey indicates that number rose to 51 percent last year. Approval also increased among independents, with 72 percent now in support. In previous years, figures among independents hovered in the mid-60s. Democratic approval stayed strong, with around three-fourths in support, similar to previous polling years. Democrats, independents and Republicans have all polled at a steadily increasing rate over the past 10 years when it comes to approving of same-sex marriage, though GOP support has always been a minority position. The same survey found that the majority of all partisan groups also support LGBTQ+ nondiscrimination protections in housing, careers and public accommodations, including 62 percent of Republicans, 85 percent of Democrats and 79 percent of independents. People who oppose pro-LGBTQ+ policies are still more likely to identify as Republicans, and most of them have a favorable view of former President TrumpDonald TrumpGood...
    Jill Biden appeared to be showing support for Meghan Markle with her choice of dress worn on Monday. The First Lady, 69, donned a $2,190 Citrus Primavera Jacquard Fit-&-Flare Dress by luxury fashion design Oscar de la Renta as she honoured 21 women from 15 countries at the International Women of Courage award ceremony. Her decision to wear the same print and designer that the Duchess of Sussex, 39, wore for her first public appearance after quitting the royal family has become a topic of discussion across social media.

    Meghan McCain said Monday that she would support treating domestic terrorists — like the Capitol rioters — “the same way we treat Al Qaeda.” McCain said on a segment of ABC’s “The View” that she wasn’t “against” sending domestic terrorists to the infamous prison at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. (RELATED: ‘If She Has Any Decency Left’: Meghan McCain Says Ivanka Should Tell President Trump To Leave) WATCH: Cohost Sunny Hostin began the segment by saying that the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump was the only way to make sure that there was true accountability for the riot during which his supporters had breached the Capitol building. The resulting chaos left five dead, including one Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick. A second officer, Howard Liebengood, reportedly took his own life on Saturday. McCain said that she did not believe Congress could go through with impeachment and removal prior to President-elect Biden’s inauguration, but she agreed that those who were a part of the violence and the rioting should be held accountable. “I just think we need to treat...
    The champagne was flowing freely, the dancefloor filling as Abba’s Waterloo boomed from the speakers, and two silver-haired men in their 60s mingled happily at a party to mark my civil partnership. Unlike my other guests, however, these friends were sipping fruit juice. The next day — Sunday — was the busiest of their working week and they couldn’t risk a hangover. Jon and Peter are Roman Catholic priests who have been in a celibate relationship for at least two decades. Today they, like me, are celebrating a landmark in the Church’s history as Pope Francis offers his clearest support to date for gay rights by endorsing same-sex civil partnerships. ‘Homosexual people have the right to be in a family,’ the 83-year-old Pope says in Francesco, a newly released documentary film. ‘They are children of God and have a right to a family.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Pope Francis made history Wednesday, becoming the first pontiff to endorse same-sex civil unions. In a new documentary that premiered Wednesday at the Rome Film Festival, Pope Francis spoke in support of same-sex civil unions. (Photo by Vatican Pool/Getty Images) “Homosexual people have the right to be in a family,” he said in a new feature-length documentary. “They are children of God. You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.” It was a momentous announcement for LGBT Catholics, like Eddie Martinez who lives in Los Angeles. “For so many years, I was shamed,” he said. “I was ashamed of who I was, I was in the closet, I thought there was something wrong with me, and it was all because of the teachings from the church.” Martinez, who is now the director of the nonprofit Latino Equality Alliance, grew up in Huntington Park going to church every Sunday at St. Matthias Church.

    Democratic nominee Joe Biden called his campaign 'Harris-Biden' while in Florida Tuesday after his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, made the same slip.   'The Harris-Biden administration is going to relaunch that effort and keep pushing further to make it easier for military spouses and veterans to find meaningful careers,' the former vice president said at a campaign stop in Tampa.  On Saturday, Harris made the same mistake, referring to the Democratic ticket as 'a Harris administration, together with Joe Biden.' The slip-of-tongue had Republican operatives licking their lips as President Donald Trump has called Biden a 'Trojan Horse for socialism.'   Biden's trip to Florida came as a new poll showed him 5 points ahead of Trump in the Sunshine State.  The Democratic nominee's two events were focused on Latino voters and veteran communities, as he needs to firm up his support with Hispanic voters and is positioned to make gains from servicemembers after The Atlantic's report that had President Donald Trump calling American war dead 'losers' and 'suckers.'   Democratic nominee Joe Biden campaigned in Florida Tuesday in an effort to boost...
