    But not all of the migrants boarding the buses in Texas are arriving up north. Tennessee local news station WTVC-TV reported Friday that Chattanooga is apparently a stopping point for charter buses carrying migrants from Texas to the East Coast. Some of the migrants were reportedly disembarking at a gas station in Rising Fawn, Georgia, intending to trek about 30 miles on foot to Chattanooga. A McDonald's employee in Chattanooga said some migrant children had gotten off the bus and were panhandling, asking for money so they could travel to Florida. Officials have warned the migrants to remain on their bus until they reach their final destination. Blackburn said that most of the migrants getting off the bus are young men and blamed President Joe Biden's policies for contributing to rampant illegal immigration and encouraging drug and human traffickers to take advantage of people traveling to the United States. "Crime has escalated," Blackburn said. "You look at the crime rates in New York and these sanctuary city mayors who are now complaining, they should be talking to Joe...

    American corporate and political leaders are more eager than ever to burnish their do-gooder credentials. Companies are taking stands on social issues more than ever before. Politicians also want to make sure the voters know they are socially just. It’s no surprise, therefore, that each house of Congress has passed a bill to stop the importation of goods made with Chinese slave labor. What’s more interesting is just how much top American companies and our political leaders have done to slow down the process and weaken the protections. It’s a case study in how Congress, the White House and big business work hand-in-hand to control the agenda in Washington. China’s government is using slave labor to produce goods used by American companies. Even worse, China is committing genocide against its Uyghur minority population. Genocide — to be clear, that means that China is attempting to “destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.” The fact that this is happening today in China is not subject to much debate anymore; both Republicans and Democrats agree. The...
    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said Tuesday that it was time to “abandon the idea” that people with political power “give a damn” about everyday Americans. Gutfeld said on “The Five” that the political elites often exempt themselves from the policies and regulations they implement for everyone else, adding that the only way to make them care was to scare them into action. (RELATED: ‘At Least She Didn’t Sniff The Kids’ Hair’: Fox Panel Mocks Kamala Harris Space Video) WATCH: Co-host Dana Perino referenced supply chain issues and how deep the impact could be going into the coming holiday season – and asked why President Joe Biden’s administration was not moving with more urgency to get things back on track. “Is there like no urgency for anything?” she asked. “I gotta point out, the best part about this story is that there is a backlog of toilet paper. The worst thing to have when there’s no TP is a backlog,” Gutfeld joked, prompting laughs from the others at the table. “We are combining inflation with scarcity. This is...
    Republican Rep. Liz Cheney will deliver an opening statement at Tuesday’s inaugural hearing for the House select committee formed to investigate the Jan. 6 riot as Democrats give the Wyoming congresswoman an increased stature on the contentious panel. Democrats elevated Cheney, stripped of her No. 3 House leadership position earlier this year due to her vocal criticism of former President Donald Trump, to the prime speaking opportunity after Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy refused to give Republican support on the investigation in the wake of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's rejection of two of his picks. The opening statement is usually performed by a committee's ranking member. Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, chair of the committee, will give the other five-minute opening statement before moving to questions. The hearing is expected to take two to three hours. Tuesday’s hearing will feature testimonies from Officer Harry Dunn and Sgt. Aquilino Gonell of the Capitol Police and Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges of the Metropolitan Police Department. All four of the officers have previously spoken about what they experienced in...
    What Pedri play in another League after the Eurocup what he did despite being 18 years old, we are going to review here another player from Spain and the four footballers who can shine in these Olympic Games. The canary is of a special category, therefore its class does not compete with the rest of the mortals. His own teammates and the coaching staff are in awe of a Pedri who seems not to notice the fact of having played almost all the matches in the past Eurocup and have been one of the players with the most minutes of the Barcelona during the past campaign. Japan receive Pedri with open arms. Leaving aside the azulgrana, we will now highlight five players who can give the gold to their team. Marco Asensio (Spain) There is no doubt that within the Selection Spanish could have been chosen Dani Olmo, Oyarzabal, Ceballos, Merino or any other of the 20 remaining players on the team, but this tournament can be the Marco Asensio. The Spaniard arrives at the appointment...
    On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Joy Reid hosted conservative filmmaker Christopher Rufo ostensibly to debate critical race theory, but the dialogue was as unproductive as you’d expect. Reid referred to a Twitter beef the two had and called it “water under the bridge” before the contentiousness commenced. The predictable trainwreck of an exchange began when Reid questioned Rufo about his credentials to discuss critical race theory and related issues. Rufo cited his status as a research fellow at the Manhattan Institute. Reid’s main issue with Rufo seemed to be that he pegs what he sees as undesirable policies and misguided commentators on race as being part of critical race theory. Rufo referred to Robin DiAngelo, who authored White Fragility, as a critical race theorist. “She’s not a critical race theorist,” said Reid. Rufo also alluded to one California teacher who asked elementary school students to cite parts of their identity that were either privileged or oppressed. At one point during the exchange, Rufo grew frustrated with what he felt was a lack of opportunity to respond. “Joy, let me respond,” said Rufo....
    The Ministry of Defense will grant aid of 1,000 euros to recruits who fought between 1957 and 1959 in the conflict of the former Spanish colony of Ifni, located in the Moroccan Sahara, known as the “forgotten war”, in recognition of its “dedication and sacrifice.” In a draft royal decree, recently reported to the Council of State and which has still to be approved by the Council of Ministers, Defense recognizes with these aid the recruits who “were integrated into expeditionary units of the Armed Forces stationed in the territory of Ifni-Sahara.” “These grants have a humanitarian and social interest due to the efforts and sacrifices that these people made during the campaign “and” suppose a duty of gratitude to them and to their families, “the draft royal decree details. The aid, says Defense, will be granted upon request, only once and directly, “valuing the social and humanitarian interest for the efforts and sacrifices” of these recruits. The “forgotten war” of Ifni-Sahara The conflict took place in the small Spanish colony of Ifni, which it was located in front...
    Democrats pursue amnesty for illegal aliens to create a voting bloc dependent on government welfare, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) told special guest host Matt Boyle on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday. Brooks explained, “The socialists are opening up our borders because they know from the data that we have at the federal government level that these illegal aliens and their households are far more likely to be dependent on welfare than any other group of people in the United States.” “These socialists know that if they can bring [illegal aliens] into the United States of America, ultimately give them amnesty and give them citizenship — as was promised by Joe Biden on October 22 at the presidential debate — then boom, they have a perpetual multimillion-vote edge in all upcoming elections because of this voter bloc that is so heavily dependent on the work of others in order to have a living in the United States of America.” LISTEN: President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris undermine U.S. sovereignty by refusing to secure the southern border, Brooks stated. “[Biden and Harris] want to tear...
    Miami : The newly configured Congress of the United States (USA) would seek to give continuity to the political consensus towards Venezuela that has prevailed between the two major parties in the House of Representatives during the previous legislature. This according to statements by the Democratic legislator, Albio Sires, who in an interview with the Voice of America, indicated that the new government of Joe Biden will continue to recognize Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela, maintaining the position adopted by former President Donald Trump. In turn, he pointed to a message to the Venezuelan people -which is under development- with the aim of reiterating the commitment of Congress to the democratic aspirations of Venezuelans. “Basically, what he is going to say is that we agree that the next step in Venezuela has to be a step towards democracy and free elections. This is aimed at the people of Venezuela. Let him know that outside of Venezuela there is a lot of support for a peaceful change, where there are elections and that the people elect the next...

    Catherine Wallace Hope might live in the Pacific Northwest these days, but her roots are planted deep in Colorado soil. From her ancestry to her education, it’s all Denver. And so is her novel Once Again, a science-fiction thriller released this month that takes advantage of the local landscape and asks the question What if you had one chance to save someone you lost? It's an interesting question, especially during this pandemic, but also one long asked in literature and entertainment. Works including H.G. Wells, W.W. Jacobs's "The Monkey's Paw," Stephen King's 11/22/63 even Avengers: Endgame have all given their takes on time and the possibility and price of traveling within. We caught up with Hope to talk about her novel, her family’s strong history in Denver, her ongoing work with Lighthouse Writers Workshop, and how she hopes to give something back, literary-style.

    'Tis the season for publications and websites to let us know whether we should feel good about where we live. And U.S. News & World Report's just-released roster should give those who reside in Boulder and Denver, as well as Coloradans in general, a warm glow. The outlet's "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21" ranks Boulder first and Denver second — and as a bonus, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins finish in fourth and fifth place, respectively. The only other city to squeeze into the top five is Austin, Texas, with the six-through-ten slots occupied by Charlotte, North Carolina; Des Moines, Iowa; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco, California. The many lists of this sort seldom agree with each other. For example, Money magazine recently dubbed Parker the second-best place to live in the country and ranked Broomfield eighteenth — yet neither of these communities make U.S. News's top 150.Related Stories Why Parker Was Named Second-Best Place to Live in America Inside Broomfield, Colorado's Second-Best Place to Live The Seven Best Places to Live in...
    With the libraries shuttered, except for curbside pickup, Denver Public Library adult services librarian Heidi Young wanted to give people in the city a way to express their thoughts and emotions about COVID-19 and this brutal year. Inspired by Quaranzine, from the Arlington Public Library, Young decided to create a zine in which library staff and customers could reflect on these brutal times. "For myself as a teenager and a young person being involved in the underground music scene back in Seattle, zines were circulated a lot in that circle," Young says. "I would trade zines with my friends and drop them off at independent bookstores." Zines are DIY, homemade magazines often showcasing works by artists, writers, photographers, and other creatives. Young thought it would be the perfect way to give her coworkers an outlet.

    Carla Bruni has revealed she slept with Nicolas Sarkozy on their second date, while Harry and Meghan did it on the third, hint the authors of their biography, Finding Freedom.  So how long did you wait?  And does the length of time ever indicate whether the relationship will be a success — or doomed?  Seven Femail writers recall their very different first experiences.
