    Fox News host Tucker Carlson dismissed House Republicans’ ‘Commitment to America,” which they promise to enact if they retake the lower chamber in the midterm elections. Carlson praised Giorgia Meloni, a right-winger who is set to become Italy’s next prime minister and the first woman to hold the position. He said Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party won because it effectively communicated policies that resonate with voters. He aired a clip of Meloni speaking at CPAC this year. “Everything we stand for is under attack,” she told the crowd. “Our individual freedom is under attack. Our rights are under attack. The sovereignty of our nation is under attack.” Meloni added, “People understand that in this age, the only way of being rebels is to preserve what we are… Knowing what we stand for is what we need to face this challenge.” The Fox News host agreed. “It’s true here,” Carlson said. “American families are facing the very same onslaught from the very same poisonous ideologies. The difference is that in this country it’s rarely acknowledged except on the fringes.” He then...
    OH, poor old Michael Owen. The former England player can’t go anywhere nowadays without being asked about Gemma, his daughter who has headed off to ITV2’s Love Island in search of fame. 6Footie ace Michael Owen can’t go anywhere nowadays without being asked about his daughter GemmaCredit: Instagram/themichaelowen 6Gemma Owen is only on Love Island because of her famous dadCredit: Rex He visited Germany last week to ­commentate on an England game and the first thing he gets asked about is his daughter on reality TV. How the mighty have fallen. In short, he will from now on be known as “Gemma Owen’s dad”. Not as that bloke who used to knock a football around but as one who now mostly, just, well, knocks around. Poor man. It must be absolute hell. Except, in among the public’s apparent empathy for him, what I’ve found most objectionable are his own comments that this is “every father’s worst nightmare”. Granted, the show has its knockers — mostly perky, cosmetically enhanced ones — but I’m pretty sure there are worse things for...
    On the morning of July 16, 1945, in the heart of the New Mexico desert, the world entered the nuclear age. For months, the scientists of the Manhattan Project had been working on a weapon of unparalleled capability, harnessing the power of the atom to unleash a colossal explosion. Now, at exactly 5.29am, they saw the results. As a ball of blazing fire rose above the desert, wrote the project’s director, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the mood was ‘entirely solemn. We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent’. As the fireball became a mushroom cloud, Oppenheimer thought of a line from the Hindu scriptures: ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ That was almost 80 years ago, and since then only two nuclear weapons have been used in anger. One was Little Boy, the atomic bomb dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, which killed at least 100,000 people. The other was Fat Man, dropped on Nagasaki three days later, which killed...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The focus on the Patriots early this offseason has been more on the coaching staff than the roster. That may remain the case for a while. A new report paints a picture of a whole lot of uncertainty regarding the potential for mutual interest between the Patriots and Bill O’Brien with regard to the open offensive coordinator position. The Athletic’s Jeff Howe wrote on Friday that the Patriots have had “at least some level of interest” in reuniting with O’Brien, who ran the team’s offense from 2009-11. However, “it’s unclear if the Alabama offensive coordinator is still in the mix for the same role with New England.” Citing sources close to the situation, Howe said “there were points when it seemed like O’Brien would indeed replace [Josh] McDaniels and other points when it seemed as though that ship had sailed. And within days, those opinions changed again. The reasons for any apparent disconnect were not revealed.” A former Patriots staffer told Howe, “It’s hard to know what Bill [Belichick] is doing right now.” O’Brien was an obvious...
    SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) — As stores start to gear up for the holiday shopping season, retailers are hoping to find more workers, but few showed up to apply during a job fair at one of the Bay Area’s largest malls. Westfield Valley Fair Mall held a job fair Wednesday afternoon to try to help the stores and restaurants there find more workers.

    Alabama council member who used racist slur faces calls to resign NASA rover preparing to take first Mars rock samples From spit tests to jam-packed buses, here's a look at the various (and sometimes illogical) safety measures in place at the Tokyo Olympics.

TOKYO — Welcome to Tokyo 2020. We are not allowed to see Tokyo, and it’s no longer 2020, but the International Olympic Committee is still calling these the 2020 Games, presumably because that’s when the COVID-19 protocols in operation here were designed. The official slogan of these Olympics is “United by Emotion,” but the unofficial one is “Separated By Meaningless Plastic Barriers,” which organizers apparently bought in bulk last year.

    Jessica Kourkounis/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump seized on the very public mistakes made by the New York City Board of Elections in premature release of early ranked voting results in a naked effort to create more confusion and uncertainty about his 2020 general election loss to President Joe Biden. The New York City Board of Elections rolled out a new ranked-choice elections strategy for the mayoral primary race earlier this month, on Tuesday released preliminary results that caused a rather significant shockwave in political circles. The early results showed Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who had previously been considered a heavy favorite based on early polling, only 16,000 votes ahead of Sanitation Department Commissioner Kathryn Garcia, with roughly 125,000 absentee ballots uncounted. The Board of Elections released data incorrectly listed Maya Wiley as “eliminated,” which they later deleted. But that wasn’t the least of the mistakes. As the Adams campaign office pointed out, there was a discrepancy in total votes listed, which the Board of Elections eventually noted was a mistake in ballot counting. It turns out that the...
    ORANGEVALE (CBS13) — With a three-month-old baby on her hip and a four-year-old daughter always riding her bicycle in the neighborhood, Melanie Osterman wants to make sure she knows her neighbors. Jason Scarcello is a convicted sex offender who authorities say has interests in cannibalism. Neighbors reached out to CBS13 after receiving an alert about Scarcello living on Drywood Way. RELATED: ‘No, I’m Pissed’: Sex Offender With Cannibal Interests Is Moving In, Some Neighbors Angry They Weren’t Notified “Nobody wants that kind of crap in this neighborhood at all,” said Osterman. After our original story aired, the homeowner told CBS13 Scarcello had applied to live there, but was denied. But the Federal Defender’s office confirms Scarcello did live there in November and moved out December 1. “I don’t know if something’s not being updated. But something’s not right,” said Woodmore Oaks Neighborhood Watch president Tom DiGiacomo. DiGiacomo sent the initial alert to neighbors but has since told them Scarcello isn’t there anymore. When you search the Drywood Way address, it doesn’t show any sex offenders living there. But after checking...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — As COVID-19 continues to claim lives, one north suburban community on Saturday honored a letter carrier who lost his battle against the virus Victor Fajardo was a letter carrier for more than 20 years. Neighbors in Deerfield found out he began treatment for COVID back in October, ended up on a ventilator, and recently died. On Saturday, neighbors set up a condolence box outside the police station. It was set up for the community to safely place cards, memories, notes and thank you notes for his family. “I definitely think that we’re seeing a lot of sadness. I also think it’s a really sobering reminder that nobody is immune to this; even if you’re healthy, and you walk a five-hour route every day, and people love you,” neighbor Cara McGowan said.  “Anybody can catch the coronavirus. Unfortunately, right now, we really need to be masking up, and protecting ourselves, and holding our loved ones close.” The box will remain in place for a week. A GoFundMe campaign has also raised more than $13,000 to help Fajardo’s family...
    Screenshot from the RNC livestream of the 2020 Republican National Convention in which Donald Trump, flanked by two U.S. Marines and walking in as "Hail to the Chief" plays, arrives for a naturalization ceremony hosted at the Great Hall in the White House and performed by acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf. The RNC branding of the White House is a nice touch. After the Donald Trump reelection campaign featured official governmental business and speeches from the White House grounds during the second night of Republican National Convention, numerous news outlets framed the violation as a "blurring of the lines" between campaigning and governing.  Let's be clear: This isn't a "blurring." It's Trump campaigning on the taxpayer dime, leveraging the symbols of American power that have been entrusted to him in service of maintaining that power. It's a completely egregious violation of the Hatch Act, a federal law that prohibits federal employees from participating in political activity while in a government building or while wearing an official uniform or insignia. The president and vice president are exempted from some parts of the law, but...
    White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows shrugged off criticisms for the second night of the Republican National Convention, saying “nobody” cares if the ceremonial pomp violated the Hatch Act. Meadows gave an interview on Wednesday for POLITICO Playbook, during which, Anna Palmer brought up Secretary of State Mike Pompeo giving a speech to the convention in the middle of a diplomatic trip in Israel. It is highly irregular for a secretary of state to participate in overtly partisan activity while operating in their official government capacity, and as Jake Sherman noted, the State Department recently instructed employees to avoid this kind of activity. When asked about that, Meadows responded by claiming political pundits have taken the Hatch Act beyond its original intent, and that it’s only supposed to prohibit executive branch employees from influencing other government employees on elections. As a reminder, the law says federal employees are not allowed to engage in activity where they “use [their] official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election.” Meadows continued...
    ESPN pundit Max Kellerman recently had a scorching hot take about hockey in the USA. The NHL is primed to return after the coronavirus pandemic, and millions of fans around the country are super excited. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Just don’t tell Max Kellerman that. During an ESPN appearance, the network star said “nobody really cares about hockey,” adding that it’s not one of the major four sports. You can watch his blazing hot take below. Beeeeef…#NHL pic.twitter.com/hpTaasSa7q — Nick Alberga (@thegoldenmuzzy) June 3, 2020 Okay, right off the bat, if hockey isn’t one of the four major sports, then what is the fourth? We all agree the NBA, NFL and MLB are in the top four. If the NHL isn’t, then is it the MLS? Is it tennis? Is it NASCAR? What an insanely stupid thing to say. On top of that, Americans love hockey! We love it! Has Kellerman ever heard of the “Miracle on Ice“? I’m happy to send Kellerman a copy of “Miracle” if he wants to do a...
    Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said “nobody really knows” who is driving the raucous violence at protests related to the death of George Floyd and faulted the Justice Department for casting blame on left-wing militants. He said Attorney General William Barr, who pointed to “Antifa-like” tactics in the protests, should be investigating instead of “making incendiary comments.” “The truth is, nobody really knows,” Mr. Ellison told NBC’s Meet the Press. “What the exact political motivation is is unclear at this point.” TOP STORIES George Soros, 89, is still on a quest to destroy America Asphyxiation not the cause of George Floyds death: Autopsy Celebrities blasted for donating to protester bail fund as rioting, violence escalate White House officials say it is clear that far-left militants are infiltrating protests, causing unrest to boil over. Yet liberal voices have pointed to the possible interference of white nationalist groups.
