    CNN analyst and former Trump White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah Griffin said on Wednesday that Kevin McCarthy has only himself to blame for not getting the House Speaker’s gavel. After four rounds of voting, McCarthy has failed to get the necessary 218 votes to lead the House. This failure was expected. McCarthy could not afford to lose more than four Republicans as the GOP has 222 seats in the lower congressional chamber. Three ballots were taken on Tuesday, the first day of the 118th Congress. “Can I just say, though, this is not John Boehner’s House or Paul Ryan’s House. Kevin McCarthy carved himself out as a uniquely bad historical figure in the way he handled Jan. 6 and in no way tried to be someone who worked across the aisle or get things done with Democrats,” said Griffin. “I’m sorry, I don’t think there’s any moral high ground for those in the only Kevin camp. They’re being as intractable as the rebel side and it’s time for somebody who is willing to step up and govern. Time for Steve...

    The View co-host and former Trump White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah Griffin blasted the GOP as “out of step” with America on marriage equality. Griffin’s remarks came one day after President Joe Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law. It codified federal protections for same-sex and interracial marriages. “One thing I just want to mention because this is a problem with my party. The left has been on the right side of this since Joe Biden famously came around quicker than Obama did in 2012,” she said on Wednesday’s show, referring to Biden, then as vice president, expressing support for gay marriage during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press. “My generation, 100 percent we are the generation of marriage equality. It is looking backward. I remember in 2015 going with a bunch of Republican Capitol Hill staffers to the steps of the Supreme Court to celebrate when Obergefell came down,” continued Griffin, referring to the Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage throughout the entire United States. Griffin went on to say, “And that’s where we...

    Getty RJ Barrett is gearing up for a breakout season. Despite the upgrades made to the roster this season, the New York Knicks still find themselves on the outside looking in for the playoffs, but that’s not entirely their fault. The Eastern Conference is incredibly deep, and a team like the Knicks who have the roster of a playoff team might find themselves outside of the play-in tournament for the second season in a row. Part of this might come down to missing out on Donovan Mitchell, but the Knicks did make improvements this offseason and there’s no question about it. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst spoke about the Knicks on NBA Today, and he argued they’d be a difficult team to defeat, especially at Madison Square Garden.The Knicks Could be Surprising .@WindhorstESPN thinks the Knicks will be a tough team to face with the addition of Jalen Brunson: "I think it is a step forward for the Knicks.

    Draymond Green has announced his decision to 'step away' from the Golden State Warriors for the coming days, at a hastily-arranged press conference in which he apologized for sucker-punching teammate Jordan Poole at a practice session. It is unclear when Green will be back with the team despite the Warriors' defense of their NBA title beginning at home to LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers on October 18 - just 10 days from now. The video of Green's punch was leaked Friday, with reports claiming that the Warriors are 'pursuing every legal course of action' to discover how the shocking footage got out.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — While the Charlotte Hornets improved their win total by 10 games over last year’s abbreviated 72-game season, the end result was the same: an embarrassing blowout loss in the play-in tournament. Despite winning 43 games, the Hornets finished in 10th place in the Eastern Conference and lost 132-103 on Wednesday night to the Atlanta Hawks. Charlotte lost by 27 points to Indiana in last year’s play-in tournament as the 10 seed. If the Hornets want to end that cycle, it’ll have to start with defense. Charlotte posted its highest offensive rating in franchise history and finished eighth overall in the NBA, but the defense continued to lag behind. Charlotte ranked 22nd in defense among the league’s 30 teams. The loss to the Hawks illustrated the dire need for a rim protector and better man-to-man defense on the perimeter. “We need to become more curious about how to guard,” coach James Borrego said. “We need to get better defensively by watching the best teams do it and learning from them and watching these (playoff) series.” Miles...
    In the center of it all, still the most important player on the court, Jimmy Butler prepared for the coming stage by going one-on-one against 6-foot-4 reserve Javonte Smart, backing in for an easy basket. This was after video session, after practice, after a team meeting Thursday where those the word, “champions,” was mentioned more than a few times and those owning a ring were noted. The 6-8 Udonis Haslem then stepped on the court. Butler, at 6-7, used a first step and dribble to create an open jumper. Enter the smaller Smart again. Swish. Then the bigger Haslem. The ball bounces off the rim. “Come on,’ Butler says in a forceful way heard across the Heat practice court. Butler talks of winning like a hungry man talks of food, and he’s about to step on the defining stage of his career. But he’s the kind of player for whom talk only covers so much. For some it does more. For some it writes a path or offers leadership. The first question to Butler is about the Heat’s No. 1...

    LET'S be honest - it can often feel as though there's no winning when you're a step-mum. If you're too hands-on then you can be accused of trying to replace their biological mother - and if you're not involved enough, then you can be seen as cold or distant. 3Mum-of-seven Jess hit back at the step-mum shaming comments she gets onlineCredit: @jesssfamofficial/Tiktok 3Jess has five biological children from three relationships and two step-childrenCredit: Instagram As a mum-of-seven (including her two step-children), this is a topic mum blogger Jess Skube knows ALL about. Earlier this year, the mum - who has been documenting her life online since she fell pregnant at 17 - hit back at trolls who shame her approach to step-parenting. In her viral TikTok video, Jess blasted people who claim her step-children "don't count" as her "real" kids. Listing the worst comments she gets, Jess said trolls have the cheek to tell her: "Those are your STEP KIDS - not your kids."

    EDDIE HEARN claims Anthony Joshua’s step-aside plan fell apart because Tyson Fury could not be trusted. Heavyweight Joshua, 32, was reluctant to duck out of his Oleksandr Usyk rematch to let Ukraine’s WBA, IBF and WBO champ challenge Fury, 33, for his WBC belt. 2Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed why Anthony Joshua rejected Tyson Fury's step-aside offerCredit: Mark Robinson Matchroom Boxing 2Fury had been keen to face Oleksandr Usyk in an undisputed bout before AJ's rematch against the unbeaten UkrainianCredit: Getty And the Gypsy King’s demand for a warm-up bout next month, further delaying AJ’s potential shot at the undisputed crown, canned the complicated multi-fight plan.

    The Jaguars chose Trent Baalke over Byron Leftwich, making the unthinkable mistake of abandoning a franchise icon. Just a week ago it looked like Leftwich would be the next head coach of the Jags — the team he used to quarterback — and would be bringing good friend Adrian Wilson to Jacksonville with him. Wilson is the Arizona Cardinals vice president of pro scouting. Leftwich is arguably the best quarterback in Jaguars franchise history. He’s gone on to be a tremendous offensive coordinator for fellow in-state NFL franchise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, coaching up Tom Brady the last few seasons. Leftwich is the easy hire, and the right hire. Buccaneers OC Byron Leftwich is expected to remove himself from consideration for the Jaguars HC job per @NFLSTROUD. Rich Bisaccia and Doug Pederson remain strong candidates for the job. pic.twitter.com/KPuJL3RF21 — PFF (@PFF) February 3, 2022 The Bucs OC gave the franchise until Thursday to meet his demands, but they failed to do so, Thus, Leftwich is removing his name from consideration.

It would mean Joshua and Fury's WBC mandatory challenger Whyte receiving a fee to sit on the sidelines and allow the historic unification. But 50-year-old Klitschko - who cornered brother Wladimir in defeats to AJ and the Gypsy King - advised Joshua against any step-aside deal. He told Sky News: "It is his decision.

    MANCHESTER UNITED have a 'relegation standard midfield', claims former Old Trafford favourite Paul Parker. And Parker, 57, believes that the Red Devils' current crop have 'no heart, passion or courage'. 3Man United's midfield has been labelled 'relegation standard'Credit: Getty 3The Red Devils slumped to defeat against WolvesCredit: Getty United fell to their first defeat under interim manager Ralf Rangnick on Monday, losing 1-0 to Wolves at Old Trafford.

He told Betfred: "People have spoken about how they’ve seen Rangnick as a mentor, so you look to him for a structure and what can take them to the next step.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell attends the House Financial Services Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 30, 2021.Al Drago | Reuters The Federal Reserve is expected to announce a dramatic policy shift Wednesday that will clear the way for a first interest rate hike next year. Markets are anticipating the Fed will speed up the wind-down of its bond buying program, changing the end date to March from June. That would free the central bank to start raising interest rates from zero, and Fed officials are expected to release a new forecast showing two to three interest rate hikes in 2022 and another three to four in 2023. Previously, there had been no consensus for a rate hike in 2022, though half of the Fed officials expected at least one. At the end of its two-day meeting Wednesday afternoon, the central bank should also acknowledge that inflation is no longer the "transitory" or temporary problem officials had thought it was, and that rising prices could be a bigger threat to the economy. The consumer price index rose...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A recent rash of ATM thefts has brought the issue to the attention of many people in the region but the problem has been on the radar of members of the law enforcement community for months. In Baltimore, where police say records indicate that ATM thefts have decreased by 50% in 2021 compared to 2020, police are currently working with businesses to give them tips on how to outsmart criminals who conduct this crime. READ MORE: Smash and Grab: Suspects Use Van As Battering Ram, Plow Through Baltimore Pharmacy In Latest ATM TheftSome of the tips shared with businesses include moving the machines from the front farther into the stores making it harder for thieves to maneuver the clunky machines outside and into a vehicle. Businesses could also use bigger bolts to secure the machine and erect barricades so that vehicles cannot directly smash into buildings in order to gain entry — or even the use of bank dye packs that would emit a dye when an ATM passes a certain trigger point. If dye gets on...
