    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., fired back Thursday after a group of left-leaning lawmakers called for an investigation into whether his objection to the 2020 presidential election results violated the upper chamber’s ethics guidelines. Hawley and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tx., drew bipartisan criticism in recent days after they objected to Electoral College results in battleground states on Jan. 6, the same day that pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol. In a complaint filed with the Senate Ethics Committee, a group of seven Democrats said Hawley and Cruz "lent legitimacy to the mob’s cause" and should be investigated for potential conduct violations. "Joe Biden and the Democrats talk about unity but are brazenly trying to silence dissent," Hawley said in a statement on the ethics complaint. "This latest effort is a flagrant abuse of the Senate ethics process and a flagrant attempt to exact partisan revenge." "Democrats appear intent on weaponizing every tool at their disposal — including pushing an unconstitutional impeachment process — to further divide the country. Missourians will not be canceled by these partisan attacks," he added. Hawley and...
    CARSON CITY, Nev. – President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden went on offense over the weekend, as both campaigned in states they are trying to flip during the Nov. 3 election that is just over two weeks away. Trump began his Sunday in Nevada, making a rare visit to church before a fundraiser and an evening rally in Carson City. Once considered a battleground, Nevada has not swung for a Republican presidential contender since 2004. The rally drew thousands of supporters who sat elbow to elbow, cheering Trump and booing Biden and the press. The vast majority wore no masks to guard against the coronavirus, though cases in the state are on the rise, with more than 1,000 new infections reported Saturday. The president, as he often does, warned that a Biden election would lead to further lockdowns and at one point appeared to mock Biden for saying he would listen to scientists. “He'll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive...

President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden went on offense Sunday, with each campaigning in states they are trying to flip during the Nov. 3 election that is just over two weeks away.

    The halloween cat collar (three pack, adjustable strap, ghost pendant and bell) has conspicuously rave reviews on Amazon. “Three for $10 is a steal!” reads one. “They seem to be made of quality material and the clasps don’t break away as easily as some other ones.” The review, like many on the e-commerce platform, is fake. It was written by Jason Wawiernia, a search engine optimization specialist in Michigan. After he left his glowing assessment of the product, Wawiernia received a refund through PayPal, in direct violation of Amazon’s policies governing ratings and reviews. Amazon banned incentivized reviews in 2016, but it’s still a rampant problem on the platform. On September 4th, a Financial Times investigation revealed nine of the top 10 reviewers in the UK were engaged in suspicious activity, leaving scores of five-star reviews for unknown Chinese brands. “Many of the same items were seen by the FT in groups and forums offering free products or money in exchange for reviews,” the article read. For third-party sellers, good ratings are critical for success on the...
    The July 3 protest in Aurora, Colorado, seemed, at least on the surface, like just another of the hundreds of racial justice protests that have swept the nation this year. Demonstrators sat outside a police station chanting and playing music. Although they said they wouldn’t leave until their demands were met, the protesters were cleared out by police around 4:30 a.m. But several of the protest leaders are facing felony attempted kidnapping charges for allegedly imprisoning police officers in their own precinct during the protest—charges their fellow activists are calling absurd. Lillian House, Joel Northam, and Whitney “Eliza” Lucero are among a group of Denver-area activists facing a slate of charges related to their protest activities this summer. Local prosecutors say the activists tried to kidnap police by holding a short-lived “occupation”-style protest outside the precinct and blocking its doors. But activists allege a crackdown on the most visible members of their movement, leading to terrifying SWAT arrests and the threat of years in prison. “This characterization that someone quote-unquote kidnapped officers is absolutely ridiculous,” Ryan Hamby, an organizer...
    (CNN)Lewis Hamilton says race stewards are "trying to stop me" after he was denied a record-equaling 91st career win at the Russian Grand Prix on Sunday. Hamilton was penalized for performing practice starts outside his designated area and was handed two five-second penalties that saw him drop out of contention. The six-time world champion had started in pole and was bidding to equal Michael Schumacher's record of career victories but could only finish third behind winner Valtteri Bottas and second-placed Max Verstappen. After the race, Hamilton said he felt the punishments were excessive. "Of course it is. But it's to be expected. They're trying to stop me, aren't they?," he told Sky Sports F1.

    It's not always easy to learn local customs as a traveller and for some unlucky jet-setters, attempts at politeness can land them in hot water with the locals. While it would be considered a lovely gesture to pay the bill for everyone in the UK or the US, it's seen as the height of rudeness in Russia and Austria, which Australian traveller Sarah Ryan discovered.  After accidentally committing a 'cultural no-no' traveller she took to Facebook to consult the members of Girls LOVE Travel over the cultural differences they have encountered, and was met with over a thousand responses. Read on to discover the etiquette mistakes you will want to avoid while abroad, including handing an object over with your left hand in Sub-Saharan Africa and not thanking people twice in Japan.

    Unsolicited copies of the Klu Klux Klan's quarterly newspaper have been left on the doorsteps of dozens of residents of a Kentucky neighborhood, provoking outrage.   A member of the white supremacist hate group said the motivation behind leaving copies of its Crusader paper in the Pleasure Ridge Park area of Louisville, was to ‘educate our White Christian Brothers and Sisters’, the Courier Journal reported. The KKK member, who was not named, also said the group wanted ‘to let them know in these troubling times of Chaos created by BLM, Antifa, NFAC, Etc. That there is an organization here for them.’ Austin Beam, 24, said he was left outraged when he went outside to take out the trash on Tuesday morning to find the KKK’s Crusader newspaper outside of his home. He also saw it had been left on the lawns of a number of his neighbors. Beam said he took a few photos of the self-proclaimed ‘premier voice of the white resistance’ before throwing it away. ‘Nothing like that has been distributed in my neighborhood before, and I’ve been here...
    San Francisco salon owner Erica Kious said Wednesday that her efforts to expose the hypocrisy of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could end her business — and she may be right. Even as Kious spoke with Fox News host and Daily Caller cofounder Tucker Carlson about the situation, the effort to destroy her appeared to already be underway. So the “set up” was Pelosi asked a salon to let her get her hair done in violation of local coronavirus guidelines & the salon owner let her then shared the video of Pelosi breaking the rules to show Pelosi’s hypocrisy, & so now Pelosi’s allies are out to destroy the salon owner. https://t.co/CFmBCPFxBu — JERRY DUNLEAVY (@JerryDunleavy) September 3, 2020 “The rules are for small-business owners who have seen their life’s work destroyed.

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his party are “trying to flip the script because they know they’re in trouble,” former Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday. Walker was reacting to remarks made by Biden during a campaign stop in Pittsburgh on Monday, in which the former vice president addressed the violence taking place in cities across the country. FLASHBACK: BIDEN CAMPAIGN STAFFERS DONATE TO GROUP THAT BAILS OUT JAILED MINNEAPOLIS RIOTERS: REPORT “I find it fascinating [Republicans say] ‘You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America’ and what’s their proof? The violence we’re seeing in Donald Trump’s America,” Biden said. “These are not images of some imagined Joe Biden's America of the future. These are images of Donald Trump’s America today.” “Joe Biden has outsourced his entire agenda on this and other topics to the radical left, including his pick for vice president, Sen. [Kamala] Harris, who, according to Newsweek, has a voting record that is literally more liberal than Bernie Sanders,” Walker said. Video“She, as well as many of his staff, helped to get some of these rioters, some of these criminals who are creating chaos in our cities, out of jail.” Walker added that “the more...
    The man who was beaten unconscious by Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Oregon, last week said it took 10 minutes for police to arrive after he sustained two black eyes and injuries to his ribs and legs. Adam Haner crashed his pickup truck on a sidewalk near a BLM demonstration in the Northwest city last Sunday evening before he was pulled from the vehicle and beaten. Portland has been the site of daily and nightly protests and clashes with law enforcement since the May 25 death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.  Adam Haner (right) was with his girlfriend, Tammie Martin (left), when he was beaten unconscious by a mob of Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Oregon, last Sunday evening After Haner was knocked out by the kick, other demonstrators came to glower over his motionless body and shout obscenities  Fox News Privacy Policy Video footage showed a man, believed to be 25-year-old Marquise Love, kicking Haner unconscious.

    Adam Haner, the man seen in a widely circulated video being brutally attacked in downtown Portland Sunday, appeared on "Watters' World" Saturday to discuss that night. "I thought that's what they were down there trying to fight, was this kind of behavior toward them, but they're exhibiting the same behavior that they're trying to stop," Haner told host Jesse Watters.

Haner described the moments before he was beaten by multiple attackers – leading up to a brutal kick to his head. "I warned everyone to get out of my way when I did start my truck.

    President Donald Trump suggested to Fox News during an interview on Thursday night that the administration is going to deploy as many law enforcement resources as it can during the election to prevent voter fraud from occurring. Trump blasted efforts by Democrats to institute universal mail-in voting, saying that “this is going to be the greatest scam in history” and “this will be the most fraudulent election in history.” “My question to you then is, are you going to have poll watchers?” Fox News host Sean Hannity asked. “Are you going to have an ability to monitor, to avoid fraud and cross check whether or not these are registered voters? Whether or not there’s been identification to know that it’s a real vote from a real American?” “We’re going to have everything,” Trump responded. “We’re going to have sheriffs and we’re going to have law enforcement and we’re going to have hopefully, U.S. attorneys, and we’re going to have everybody, and attorney generals. But it’s very hard.” “I mean, you have some of these states sending them out like Nevada...
    The Red Sox have reached the team meeting stage of a bad season. Before losing a second straight game to the Yankees on Saturday night — and fifth straight overall — the Red Sox held a team meeting at their hotel in New York to try to turn things around. It hasn’t paid immediate dividends, as they lost Saturday and again Sunday to extend their overall losing streak to seven straight games, but they want to change their mindset moving forward. “We’re really just trying to make the best of a unique situation with the season,” veteran outfielder Kevin Pillar told reporters Sunday night. “I know things aren’t going really well, we still have a ton of games left, and we got to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and come out every day. “This season is going to happen whether we want it to happen or not. We’ve got 40-some-odd games. A lot can change.” The Red Sox entered Monday 6-16. Their pitching has struggled, their defense has often been lacking and some of their biggest bats have started...
    Democrats can’t win an “honest election” so they are trying “to set up an ability to steal it,” Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday. Gingrich made the statement the morning after the Trump campaign and the Republican National state and national committees filed a lawsuit against Nevada over expanded mail-in voting for the November election. The lawsuit claims Assembly Bill 4, which would allow ballots to be mailed to all registered voters in the state, will undermine the election’s “integrity,” FOX 5 in Las Vegas reported. Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat, signed the bill on Monday after it passed the state legislature along party lines, the Nevada Independent reported. Sisolak tweeted the bill “ensures protections for Nevadans to vote safely at the November election during the pandemic.” ROVE RIPS NEVADA'S UNIVERSAL MAIL-IN BALLOTING LAW, WARNS 'WE ARE GOING TO SEE THE POTENTIAL FOR FRAUD' Gingrich also reacted on Wednesday to a tweet from former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who wrote, “I fear Republican sabotage of the USPS, including slowing mail delivery, is a Trump strategy to...
    Matthew Rozsa July 26, 2020 12:00PM (UTC) Earlier this month, former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign released a 110-page document containing policy recommendations that the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate will be expected to advocate in his platform and (in theory) follow if elected in November. The conditions which led to the development of this platform are quite consequential. After Biden defeated Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the nomination, Sanders' staff and supporters argued that they could not support Biden merely because he was the only viable alternative to President Donald Trump. Former Sanders staffers joined the Biden campaign with explicit hopes that Biden would incorporate some of Sanders' progressive platform into his own. That was the mentality they brought with them when six policy task forces — on the economy, health care, education, immigration, climate change and criminal justice reform — were formed in May to make policy proposals to the Democratic National Convention's Platform Committee. : The task forces came away with a number of concrete policy suggestions, although they are not nearly as progressive as the Sanders campaign had hoped....

    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., is planning on introducing an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would commit to holding a review and recommendation process over renaming military bases that currently honor former Confederate leaders. "I'm going to put forward an amendment that will take this out of politics and the attempt to turn it into a culture war issue, which is really, I think, unfortunately, what my Democrat colleagues in the Senate are trying to do. I mean, they're trying to use this to divide. They're trying to use this to stir up a culture war, all for political gain," Hawley told Fox News Digital in an interview Wednesday. The proposal would work to counteract a separate amendment offered by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., that would require the Department of Defense to remove the names of Confederate generals on all posts, assets, aircraft, streets, ships, etc., within three years. Warren's idea passed by voice vote out of the Senate Armed Sevices Committee last week. "The problem with Senator Warren's proposal is that it is mandatory. It says the bases will be renamed. It just skips...
