    Police in Westchester County are warning of scammers who target members of the Hispanic immigrant community in an effort to get money from them.  The scammers have been approaching unsuspecting victims in Yonkers with a promise to share a lottery prize in exchange for a down payment that would be used to purchase legal services or act as collateral, according to a release by Yonkers Police from Sunday, Nov. 13.  Police said the scammer might also walk victims to storefronts such as a professional building, bank, or law office as part of the ruse, and they may then convince the victim to hand over cash or jewelry.  After the victim hands these over, the scammer will then disappear, according to authorities. The two suspects involved in the scam are believed to be an older light-skinned Hispanic male in his late 60’s, and a dark-skinned Hispanic male in his 40’s, Yonkers Police said.  The investigation into the scams is still ongoing, according to police.  This is a developing story.

    THIEVES are targeting Walmart shoppers with a sneaky tactic that takes just five seconds to set up at self-checkout. Criminals are finding new ways to steal at Walmart self-checkout, and police are warning that this may include robbing information from innocent shoppers. Officials are alerting customers to be wary as credit card skimmers were found attached to checkout devices at a Walmart store in Richland, Washington. It's important to check card readers to see if they've been altered as skimmers can steal card information and PIN numbers, authorities remind shoppers. Police say all skimmer devices have since been removed, and they are not aware of other stores being affected. The Richland Police Department said to be sure to check card readers when shopping at stores to see if they've been altered. Police also suggest having a look around for possible cameras that may be pointing at card machines while you're paying. It's also important to cover up the number pad when you enter your pin. Walmart provided a comment to The U.S. Sun, saying: "We make every effort to give...
    BRAZEN burglars have switched to targeting footballers when they are home — because it is easier to break in. The gang has moved away from away day raids when stars were out at matches as they became wary of alarms quickly alerting police and security teams. 1Last week, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and fiancée Perrie Edwards were at home when they were burgled A source said: “It’s five or six guys loosely connected to Salford and very professional. “They used to take down cash vans in the 1990s before it got too difficult. “They spend ages casing a joint and are not afraid to take a risk if the reward is there. “They know if they break in when no one is home the modern systems are so good they will only have minutes before the cops or security turn up.

    Mike Coppola/Getty Images Elliot Page penned a heartfelt essay for Esquire magazine, in which he detailed the biggest joys and difficulties he faced both while transitioning and while in the closet at the height of his career. Page shared that the “biggest joy” of transitioning has been “really seeing yourself.” “I know I look different to others, but to me I’m just starting to look like myself,” he wrote. “It’s indescribable, because I’m just like, there I am. And thank God.” The actor went on to question why “people making it more difficult?” “It really breaks my heart. It really breaks my heart. That’s literally all we’re trying to communicate,” he wrote. “That’s what’s so funny to me. When people say, Cancel this. Cancel that. No, they get four more comedy specials and have a jillion followers! The people getting canceled are the trans people who are suffering, or killing themselves, or murdered.” Page went on to say that he finds the media often pins people against each other, noting, “People can actually be communicating in a way that isn’t aggressive,...
    Fox News’ Bret Baier and Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) battled about the concerns involved with Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Bill, which critics have referred to as the “Don’t Say Gay” law. Baier interviewed Murphy on Fox News Sunday, for a conversation in which the senator was questioned on President Joe Biden labeling “the MAGA crowd” as “the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history.” Asked if he agrees with those remarks, Murphy expressed his concerns with the “very quick, hateful divisive turn that the Republican Party has taken,” and deflected by bringing up the Florida law. “This effort in Florida to sort of target gay kids in schools,” Murphy said, “I just think it’s mean-spirited, and something that I had not seen from the Republican Party when I first started out in politics 20 years ago.” At that point, Baier interrupted and objected to the claim that the bill “targets” gay schoolchildren. “The bill is about not talking about sexual identity from K through 3rd grade,” said Baier. “That’s not targeting gay kids.” “Yes it is,” Murphy...

    Can't we limit this guy's power without making Ted Cruz happy at the same time? Big Tech is freaking out over a Senate anti-trust bill that would block the biggest firms—especially Google, Amazon, Apple, and Facebook—from using their power to give themselves major advantages over other companies, to the detriment of consumers as well. The American Innovation and Choice Online Act was introduced by Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley and received bipartisan support in a January committee vote. In a Monday speech in Kentucky, Klobuchar detailed the opposition from tech companies. “They have spent $70 million against us in this effort and that doesn't even count the advertising, that's just the lobbying from last year,” she said. “And there's 2,700 lobbyists from those four companies now roaming the halls of Congress.” When an industry is that upset about legislation, it’s often a sign that it’s going to be effective at cracking down on that industry’s favored abuses, and that’s absolutely the case with this bill. But some advocates for reining in the power of these massive tech companies say there's one...
    London (CNN Business)Jerome Powell is trying to hike interest rates without damaging the economy. Getting it wrong means recession, and he knows it.The chairman of the Federal Reserve said Monday that the central bank is prepared to repeatedly hike interest rates — and by 0.5 percentage points if necessary— in order to get inflation under control. The remarks on prices are the most aggressive yet from Powell, who has the very difficult job of hiking interest rates without pushing the US economy into recession — something economists call engineering a "soft landing.""If we conclude that it is appropriate to move more aggressively by raising the federal funds rate by more than 25 basis points at a meeting or meetings, we will do so," Powell said during a speech to economists. "And if we determine that we need to tighten beyond common measures of neutral and into a more restrictive stance, we will do that as well."The strident tone from the Fed boss set off alarm bells on Wall Street, and stocks dropped during the speech. The central bank hiked rates...
    During his virtual address to Congress, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made a direct appeal to President Joe Biden to “be the leader of the world.” “President Biden, you are the leader of the nation, of your great nation. I wish you would be the leader of the world,” he added. “Being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace.” Those remarks were followed by a standing ovation by members of Congress. In his address, while he expressed appreciation for what the U.S. has done in response to the conflict, Zelensky reiterated his calls for a no-fly zone and for the United States to facilitate the Polish transfer of the Soviet-era MiG fighter jets, both of which the United States has refused to do so. “You know that that they exist, you know you have them,” he said. “But they are on the ground, not in the Ukrainian sky, not defending the Ukrainian people.” Zelensky also called for additional sanctions on Russia, including targeting members of the Kremlin. The address featured a powerful video showing the Russian military...
    President Biden said Wednesday that it is clear Vladimir Putin is targeting civilians in Ukraine and insisted that 'nothing is off the table' with banning Russian gas imports, a drastic move that would send energy prices soaring further.  'It’s clear they are,' Biden said, when asked by a reporter if Russia is targeting civilians as he left the White House for Wisconsin.  Ukraine estimates that 2,000 civilians have been killed so far.   However Biden said it was too early to say whether Russia had committed war crimes. 'We are following it very closely. It’s early to say that.'  Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., shot back on Twitter: 'I don’t understand why Biden says it’s too early to say #Putin is committing war crimes If he says #Russia is using banned weapons, intentionally killing civilians & unnecessarily destroying civilian property then it’s clear he is committing war crimes.'  'Are you considering banning Russian oil imports?' Biden was also asked. 'Nothing is off the table,' he said.   Republicans have long called for Biden to start pumping more oil in America and stop buying Russian gas,...
    by Kendall Tietz   A National School Boards Association (NSBA) executive reportedly knew about Attorney General Merrick Garland’s memorandum targeting concerned parents before it was published, according to new information obtained by Parents Defending Education. Chip Slaven, then-interim executive director of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) knew about Garland’s memorandum that called on the FBI to “use its authority” against parents who threaten or use violence against public school officials, according to an email obtained by Parents Defending Education (PDE) through a public records request. “I understand Chip knew about the U.S. AG Directives before they were published,” Alabama NSBA member Pam Doyle told Florida NSBA member Beverly Slough in an Oct. 5, 2021 internal email exchange. “So much for communicating with the BOD,” she added. Alabama and Florida have since withdrawn their membership from the NSBA.

    Executives from the nation's largest banks were briefed by Biden's team on potential sanctions it could levy on Russia if it were to invade Ukraine.  Members of Biden's National Security Council met with executives from banks like Citigroup, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, according to Bloomberg.  The U.S. and the European Union are developing a package that would include targeting Moscow's ability to convert its currency.  Energy penalties that are under consideration include cutting off access to its Swift system, which manages 42 million orders a day for payments, Bloomberg reports. Swift is considered the nuclear option and the most divisive.  SWIFT, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, is used by over 11,000 financial institutions across the world and is essential to global finance. Without access, most financial institutions could not send money into or out of Russia.  'Implications for global trade and the financial markets must be a major consideration for policy makers,' Tomasz Noetzel and Jonathan Tyce, analysts at Bloomberg Intelligence, said in a research report.

    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel said Wednesday that it had broken up an Iranian spy ring that recruited Israeli women via social media. The women agreed to photograph sensitive sites, gather intelligence and in at least two cases, to encourage their sons to join Israeli military intelligence. Israel views Iran as its greatest threat, and the two nations have been waging a shadow war for years. Israel has repeatedly threatened to take military action against Iran to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons. Iran denies it is seeking such weapons and has vowed a harsh response to any aggression. Israel’s Shin Bet internal security service said a suspected Iranian intelligence operative identified himself as Rambod Namdar on Facebook and claimed to be a Jewish man living in Israel. He appears to have targeted Israelis of Iranian descent. It said a 40-year-old Israeli woman was in touch with him for several years and agreed to photograph the U.S. Embassy when it was in Tel Aviv, as well as an Israeli government office and a shopping mall. The recruiter asked her to...

However, a higher 100-microgram dose of the company's booster shot could be ready much sooner.

    Facebook continues to track teens for the purpose of bombarding them with ‘surveillance advertising’ despite the company’s claim that it was stopping the practice, according to a new report. The report by Global Action Plan and Reset Australia accuses Facebook, which has rebranded itself as Meta, of ‘harvesting children’s personal data to fuel their advertising delivery system.’ The social network is being accused of using AI technology to surveil children’s browsing patterns and sites visited so that it can tailor which ads they are exposed to. DailyMail.com has reached out to Facebook/Meta seeking comment. Facebook/Meta pledged this past summer to restrict advertisers’ ability to target users under the age of 18. The company rebranded itself in the wake of several scandals, including one triggered by a whistleblower who leaked documents indicating that the social network knew its products were harmful to teens.

    (CNN)President Joe Biden on Tuesday called on Republicans to stop pursuing retaliation against 13 members of their party who voted to pass the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill in the House last week, saying he's never seen things this way in Congress. Some conservative House Republicans have discussed booting those GOP colleagues from committee spots, even though the effort faces little chance of succeeding. And former President Donald Trump has been privately criticizing the 13 Republicans who voted to pass the bill, questioning why they would give Biden a win when he's struggling in the polls, according to a GOP source."Well, I'm hoping, Jaime, that we can get back to a place where there's more civility in politics," Biden said in conversation with Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison during a grassroots town hall. "I really mean it. And I've never seen it this way." He continued, "If they're a chairman of a committee, they're trying to strip them of that chairmanship. I've never seen it like this before. It's gotta stop for the sake of America. I know I get...
    Microsoft on Monday warned that the same Russian group behind the SolarWinds cyber attack in 2020 has been attempting to "replicate" that approach, now targeting organizations "integral" to the global IT supply chain—specifically, resellers and technology service providers. Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Customer Security & Trust Tom Burt shared the "latest activity" the company has observed from Russian nation-state actor Nobelium. Burt, in a blog post, said Nobelium was identified by the U.S. government and others as being part of Russia’s foreign intelligence service, known as the SVR. US COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OFFICIALS WARN OF THREATS FROM CHINA, RUSSIA TO EMERGING TECHNOLOGY "Nobelium has been attempting to replicate the approach it has used in past attacks by targeting organizations integral to the global IT supply chain," Burt wrote.

    Annette Riedl | Picture Alliance | Getty Images The Russian-linked hacking group that's been blamed for an attack on the U.S. government and a significant number of private U.S. companies last year is targeting key players in the global technology supply chain, according to cybersecurity experts at Microsoft. Nobelium, as the hacking group is known, is infamous for the SolarWinds hack. On Monday, Tom Burt, Microsoft corporate vice president of customer security and trust, said Nobelium has "been attempting to replicate the approach it has used in past attacks by targeting organizations integral to the global IT supply chain." "This time, it is attacking a different part of the supply chain: resellers and other technology service providers that customize, deploy and manage cloud services and other technologies on behalf of their customers," Burt wrote in a blog Monday. Nobelium, which could not be reached for comment, is hoping to "piggyback" on any direct access that resellers may have to their customers' IT systems, Burt said. He added that this would allow the group to "more easily impersonate an organization's trusted technology...
    President Joe Biden rolled out new measures designed to stop the spread of Covid-19 on Thursday. Speaking from the White House, Biden said he would require all federal employees to be vaccinated against the virus, as well as employees of contractors with which the government does business. Biden will also ask the Department of Labor to require all companies with at least 100 employees to require their workers be vaccinated or receive weekly testing for the virus. Additionally, Biden used firm language to address those Americans who are unvaccinated. “My message to unvaccinated Americans is this,” he stated. “What more is there to wait for? What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations free, safe, and convenient. The vaccine is FDA approved.” Biden concluded his speech and left without taking questions from the press. Cohosts of The Five were less than impressed by Biden’s announcements. “He’s an angry man, he’s a bitter man,” said Jesse Watters. “He’s humiliated by the Afghanistan situation. He’s upset with the economic recovery, where it should be but it’s not, so he’s that...

                      by Vince Bielski  Michael Landsbaum hit bottom after his father lost his job and couldn’t pay rent, leaving the teenager homeless in Dallas. He slept on friends’ couches for months until he was rescued by an unlikely source: his high school. But Pathways in Technology Early College High School did much more than provide him with a place to stay at a counselor’s home. Its accelerated program, including college courses, gave Landsbaum the drive to get through the tough times and the hope for better days. “My goal was to get my associate’s degree, and when I got that, things got a whole lot easier,” he says. Landsbaum, 20, is finishing his bachelor’s in computer science at the University of North Texas – a turnaround that’s typical of the school, part of a growing movement better known by its acronym P-TECH.

    OAKLAND — Eleven days after a Martinez man was shot to death near an Oakland park, police here received an anonymous tip warning that there was a robbery crew moving around the city, targeting sex workers and johns — with the tipster giving them the nicknames of two members. A month after receiving that tip, police arrested a 20-year-old woman in connection with the homicide, identified her as the person who made the call, and issued warrants for the two people she allegedly named to police, according to investigators. The arrest wasn’t made until after the woman admitted to her mother — while sitting in a police interrogation room, with cameras rolling — that she accidentally shot the victim, police said. The woman, identified in court documents as Jaylynnkelly Walton, of Oakland, was charged Thursday with murdering Francisco Rosa-Rosales, 43, in a July 6 shooting near San Antonio Park. Walton was arrested Aug. 23; she made her initial appearance in court Thursday morning but didn’t enter a plea, according to court records. Rosa-Rosales was found shot around 10:12 p.m. in...
    The Justice Department is launching new strike force teams to target illegal gun trafficking in five cities as the Biden administration makes efforts to combat a "staggering" rise in violent crime that has plagued a number of cities across the nation.  The effort will focus on reducing the flow of illegal firearms in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, D.C. – all locales where authorities have said many guns used in crimes originate elsewhere.  "Working with our local partners to tackle violent crime is one of the Justice Department’s most important responsibilities," Attorney General Merrick Garland said in a statement.

    Two Chicago gang members were arrested Wednesday after they were allegedly involved in a May 14 shooting that targeted a family’s vehicle, leaving a 2-year-old girl wounded. David Contreras, 18, and Rodolfo Irigoyen, 21, of the Two Six gang thought they were trailing the Latin Kings, a rival gang, as they followed and shot at the family’s Buick Encore SUV, which contained a 2-year-old, a 9-month-old, and their two parents, according to Cook County prosecutors.

    Twitter is refusing to judge a LeBron James tweet that some believe contained a veiled threat against the Ohio police officer who shot a 16-year-old black girl, saying the NBA superstar's decision to delete the post left its hands tied. “Our teams are unable to evaluate Tweets that have been deleted since they no longer exist on our service,” a Twitter spokesperson told the Washington Examiner on Thursday. James tweeted a photo Wednesday of Ohio police officer Nicholas Reardon, who shot Ma’Khia Bryant after she charged at two people with a knife, with the caption, "YOU'RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY." Although a video of the incident appears to show that Reardon stopped Bryant moments before she stabbed an unidentified female, James and others have questioned his actions. James was hit with an eruption of criticism for “inciting violence" at a time when riots have reached a powder-keg situation across the country and questions on whether Twitter would take action. James subsequently deleted the tweet. MAXINE WATERS ASKING BLM TO AMP UP 'CONFRONTATIONS' AMID CHAUVIN TRIAL, STILL ACTIVE ON FACEBOOK...

    Thursday, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) discussed her proposal of sweeping reform to U.S. antitrust laws that is aimed at reducing monopoly power. Klobuchar said on “CNN Newsroom” that her antitrust bill is “about a check and balance.” She argued the laws in place should be “as sophisticated” as tech companies like Facebook and Google so the new, small start-ups can take them on. “You have a situation where, throughout history, new companies, small start-ups have changed the country, have made our country so strong, and right now, especially in the tech area, you have companies like Google that have 90% control over search engines,” Klobuchar emphasized. “And you have to allow a regeneration of our economy. What I’m proposing is make sure these agencies are able to take on trillion-dollar companies like Facebook and Google. They can’t do it with band-aids and duct tape. And then, make changes to the law. We’ve always done that over time. We can’t let sophisticated companies that, yes, are popular, that, yes, employ a lot of people. They will continue to do that, but we...

    By SAMYA KULLAB and MATT LEE, Associated Press BAGHDAD (AP) — The Trump administration has signaled it could close its diplomatic mission in Baghdad if measures are not taken to control rogue armed elements responsible for a recent spate of attacks against U.S. and other interests in the country, Iraqi and U.S. officials said Monday. A U.S. official said the warning was clear and given to both Iraq's president and prime minister but that it was not an imminent ultimatum. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about diplomatic discussions. There should be “no confusion” among Iraqi leaders about how seriously the U.S. takes the threat to its personnel and property, the official said.

    BAGHDAD (AP) — The Trump administration has signaled it could close its diplomatic mission in Baghdad if measures are not taken to control rogue armed elements responsible for a recent spate of attacks against U.S. and other interests in the country, Iraqi and U.S. officials said Monday. A U.S. official said the warning was clear and given to both Iraq’s president and prime minister but that it was not an imminent ultimatum. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about diplomatic discussions. There should be “no confusion” among Iraqi leaders about how seriously the U.S. takes the threat to its personnel and property, the official said.

    President Donald Trump made attacks on China an organizing principle of his Republican convention speech Thursday – accusing the country of allowing the coronavirus to spread around the world and claiming Joe Biden would be beholden to the rising power.  Trump repeatedly referenced the 'China virus' when talking about the disease, laced references to China throughout his hour-long address at the White House, and blasted Biden for supporting trade legislation that he characterized as a giveaway of American jobs. Many people consider the term a slur. 'In recent months, our nation, and the rest of the world, has been hit with a once-in-a-century pandemic that China allowed to spread around the globe,' Trump said, in one of several references to the pandemic in Thursday's programming. President Donald Trump repeatedly brought up China in his GOP convention speech, referencing the 'China virus' and claimed Joe Biden's agenda is 'Made in China'  'When the China Virus hit, we launched the largest national mobilization since World War II,' Trump said, touting his handling of the pandemic as have a skein of convention...
    A file photograph showing young pine trees seen from a mature pine forest.Georgeclerk | Getty Images HSBC Global Asset Management and climate change advisory and investment firm Pollination Group are teaming up to launch a series of billion-dollar funds that will target "natural capital."  The new venture, which is the largest of its kind, will be called HSBC Pollination Climate Asset Management. The funds will target institutional investors including pension funds and sovereign wealth funds. There are many energy and climate-focused funds on the market, but what sets this new partnership apart is its scale, as well as its focus on natural capital specifically. In the simplest terms, natural capital means nature's assets, including trees, oceans and soil. Rather than invest in a solar farm or technology related to energy storage, for example, HSBC Pollination Climate Asset Management is targeting nature-generated assets. This includes projects tied to areas like regenerative farming practices and sustainable forest management.  John Morton, partner at Pollination Group, said that the deal, which typically would have taken multiple years to put together, was sealed in a matter of...
    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel said Wednesday it foiled a cyberattack targeting its defense industry by a shadowy group that the U.S. has linked to North Korea. The Israeli Defense Ministry said hackers with the Lazarus Group built fake profiles on the LinkedIn social network and posed as the CEOs and senior officials of international companies. They then offered job opportunities to employees at major Israeli defense firms in an attempt to gain access to their computers and networks to steal sensitive information. The ministry says the attacks were detected “in real time” and thwarted. It said there was no “harm or disruption” to the targeted networks. The ministry said the Lazarus Group is “backed by a foreign country,” without elaborating. It did not immediately respond to a request for further comment. The U.S. Treasury Department announced sanctions against the Lazarus Group last September, saying it was controlled by the North Korean government. It said the Lazarus Group was behind the devastating WannaCry ransomware, which froze 300,000 computers across 150 countries in 2017, and the destructive cyber attack against Sony Pictures...
    Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) decried the civil lawsuit filed by New York State Attorney General Letitia James against the National Rifle Association (NRA). “[I] mean, this lady – – the Attorney General in New York has been trying to shut the NRA down since she came into office. She is literally trying to weaponize her office to waste taxpayer money to go after a political vendetta that she has had against the NRA. And she’s made statements to that point long before there were any kind of allegations of wrongdoing. So here’s an example of a prosecutor looking to put somebody away before they even see a crime, and she just wants to shut down the NRA. That’s not what taxpayer dollars are supposed to be used for. It’s an abuse of her office.” Scalise described the suit as going beyond an attack on the Second Amendment but targeting conservatives. “I’m passionate about people’s Second Amendment rights. And in fact, it was people with guns who saved my life, and everybody else...

    CHICAGO — Hundreds of demonstrators marched Friday at the Daley Center downtown, protesting federal immigration enforcement and a recent move by the Trump administration placing stricter requirements upon international students attending college in the U.S.  The new policy, announced earlier this week, prohibits international students on F-1 or M-1 visas from studying in the U.S. if their schools plan only to provide online instruction this fall. If their schools are online only, they risk deportation unless they transfer to a school offering in-person instruction or leave the country voluntarily. Several university leaders said the move is designed to pressure colleges and universities to open their campuses this fall. Oscar Hew, a Roosevelt University student from Singapore, called the rule change “very xenophobic.” “Some international students don’t have stable internet or a conducive environment back home where they can truly excel at their studies,” Hew said. “They’ve worked so hard to be here. I just don’t think it’s fair to them.” Fernando Hernandez, who attends Loyola University law school, said college administrators are doing everything in their power to...
    A patron at West Alabama Ice House opens a beer before Texas Governor Greg Abbott's order that all bars are to be closed at noon today in Houston, Texas on June 26, 2020. Mark Felix/AFP via Getty Images A group of Texas bar owners have sued the governor over an executive order shutting down bars due to the state's growing coronavirus outbreak. Abbott said a recent spike in cases has largely been driven by Texas residents congregating in bars. One bar owner called Abbott's order "discrimination." The lawsuit argued that Abbott singled out bars in his executive order, while allowing other businesses such as nail salons and barber shops to reopen. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Roughly two dozen bar owners in Texas have sued the governor over a coronavirus executive order, and urged a judge to immediately lift the state's new restrictions on bars. Gov. Greg Abbott ordered the new shutdown on June 26, which effectively closed down all bars in the state, except for delivery and take-out, and ordered restaurants to scale back their...
    The "Never Trump" coalition of Republicans fighting to oust President Trump from the White House is making a risky play, just as the president's lackluster poll numbers are raising concerns on the right -- they're going after Republican senators too. The effort is being led by The Lincoln Project, a media-savvy outfit that spends most of its time hammering the incumbent president with scathing TV and digital ads. REPUBLICANS RETURNING FIRE IN 2020 BATTLE FOR THE SENATE But along with targeting Trump, The Lincoln Project is now weighing in on the races of GOP senators facing tough reelections this year. “Governor Steve Bullock did a hell of a job for Montana and in the U.S. Senate, he’ll show them what Montana strong looks like,” says a new TV and digital ad the group unveiled last week in Montana, as they endorsed the Democratic governor’s Senate bid against Republican incumbent Sen. Steve Daines. The spot characterizes Daines – who’s facing a tough reelection challenge from Bullock – as a “do nothing, say nothing politician.” On Monday, The Lincoln Project took aim at Sen. Susan Collins of Maine over her...
    BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Tuesday that it will have to respond if Washington does not stop targeting Chinese media organisations operating in the United States. Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian made the remarks after the United States said it will start treating four major Chinese media outlets as foreign embassies, alleging they are mouthpieces for Beijing.

    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday that he anticipates major tech companies will fight “tooth and nail" against new legislation he introduced targeting those companies. Hawley’s bill would give Americans the ability to sue major tech companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter if they engage in selective censorship of political speech. “Big Tech are some of the most powerful players on Capitol Hill,” Hawley noted. “They have purchased a lot of influence with the think tank economists, unfortunately on both sides of the aisle, so they will fight this tooth and nail. They fight any kind of reform tooth and nail.” He went on to say that he thinks that “as people see more and more how powerful Big Tech is and how they are using power to favor one political side over the other, I think people are going to stand up and say, 'This is enough.'” The Limiting Section 230 Immunity to Good Samaritans Act, co-sponsored by Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Mike Braun, R-Ind., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., would stop such companies from receiving immunity under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, unless they...
