    A former Republican Congressman said he has left the party after working for the committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol saying, 'what I've seen behind the scenes has pushed me further away.'  Denver Riggleman, 52, appeared on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday where he spoke about how some of the evidence he saw while advising the committee influenced his decision. Riggleman worked as a technical adviser for the House select committee that is investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.  'What I've seen behind the scenes has pushed me further away. That the party has moved away from conservative principles to this cult of personality that Liz Cheney is talking about. She's absolutely correct,' Riggleman told  CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday.

    Earlier in the interview, Judd made it clear how he trains his officers to deal with active shooters. "At the end of the day we know that shootings, these active shooters, are done between zero and 5 minutes," he explained. "The police response is plus five minutes. We also know that active shooters don’t get to change it to a barricade situation. "When you go in shooting, even though you pause, it doesn’t mean there aren’t injured children or people lying there. Once an active shooter, always an active shooter," he continued. "Push in, save lives, neutralize the threat. We train for that. We expect that. "I can tell you this: I want them to shoot them, shoot them so much that you can read the local newspaper through them," Judd added bluntly. "Neutralize the threat." The long-term solution to preventing mass killings at schools, Judd later said, is to "find people long before they show up on the campus." He said communities must work together and report suspicious activity to law enforcement. "If you see something, you hear...
    Getty Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers weren’t expecting to be watching the playoffs from home this time of year prior to the season starting. The year was an abject disaster that ended with head coach Frank Vogel getting fired. The focus for the team right now is to find the next head coach but there could be bigger issues brewing. There are some great young teams in the Western Conference right now. The Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies are battling in the playoffs and each of them has young stars. The future of the Western Conference is bright but the future of the Lakers is murky. The team’s best player is LeBron James, who will be turning 38 next season. Anthony Davis is only 29 but he’s injury-prone. Russell Westbrook is aging poorly and likely won’t be on the team next season. Talen Horton-Tucker was supposed to be the young star for the team but he was a massive disappointment this season. It could be time for the...
    (CNN)Phase two of Russia's invasion of Ukraine -- an offensive in the eastern Donbas region -- is underway. The question is whether it will be any more successful and competent than phase one, and whether Ukraine will have enough troops and weapons to impede or even block it. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday that the operation in the Donbas is "a very important moment of this entire special operation." The Russian goal is clear and publicly stated: to secure all of Ukraine's eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk -- parts of which Russian-backed separatists have controlled since 2014. A second aim is to crush the remaining resistance in the port city of Mariupol to consolidate a land bridge linking the Russian region of Rostov with Crimea, which Russia seized from Ukraine eight years ago. To those ends, Russian forces that were deployed to the north and east of Kyiv have been redeployed and in some cases reconstituted after suffering heavy losses. Armored personnel carriers of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic drive through a street in Mariupol on...
    Joe Rogan is slamming the California elementary school that he claims pushed woke anti-racism ideology on his nine-year-old daughter after George Floyd's killing. The podcaster claims the unnamed school issued a blanket statement email in May 2020 telling families that students 'must be anti-racist,' something he claims the kids were too young to even understand.  'When the whole George Floyd thing happened, one of the schools that my kids were going to back in California released this email, saying that it's not enough to not be racist, you now must be anti-racist,' Rogan, 54, said on Tuesday's episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.   He said he could support schools teaching students that 'racism is stupid,' but argues teaching them to be anti-racist is inappropriate.  'These kids are not even remotely racist. Like, they have all sorts of different kinds of friends,' he said. 'I've never heard them discuss it once. It's just "I like this person and she's nice to me and we like to play together and we both like the same things,"' he said. 'So to...
    NYC Mayor Eric Adams has been blasted for saying there's only a 'perception' of danger on the city's subway, the day after a passenger was pushed to her death in a seemingly random attack.   Speaking at a press conference in the wake of Saturday's murder, Adams said: 'New Yorkers are safe on the subway system I think it's about 1.7 percent of the crimes in New York City that occur on the subway system. 'Think about that for a moment,' he added. 'What we must do is remove the perception of fear. 'Cases like this aggravate the perception of fear,' he said referring to the death of subway rider Michelle Go, 40 — who was unexpectedly killed when suspect Simon Martial, 61, allegedly pushed her in front of an oncoming MTA train on Saturday morning at the station on West 42nd St and Broadway. 'When you see homeless individuals with mental health issues not being attended to and given the proper services, that adds to the perception of fear,' Adams said.  Former Republican mayor candidate and Adam's arch-nemesis, Curtis Sliwa,...

    Washington (CNN)Texas Democrats' dramatic trip to Washington, DC, this week stemmed from uniform opposition to two voting bills being pushed by state GOP lawmakers: Senate Bill 1 and House Bill 3. Even as some controversial provisions in earlier legislation have been dropped, either bill would still bring a raft of new voting restrictions to the Lone Star State.Here's what you need to know:What's in Senate Bill 1? Partisan poll watcher protection. Partisan poll watchers would enjoy broad new protection and access in Texas. This includes being "entitled to sit or stand near enough to see and hear the activity." Effectively, the bill makes it illegal to obstruct or create distance for poll watchers in any way while also giving poll watchers more legal recourse against election officials. Read MoreVoting rights activists for months have sounded alarms about empowering partisan poll watchers and expanding voter challenges, arguing it could lead to voter intimidation.

    Week 8 of the NFL season felt a little like a trip to Las Vegas. It started out with a wave of enthusiasm and featured some awesome moments (the Steelers-Ravens and Broncos-Chargers games). But as it went on, things started to get weird and exhausting, and by the end (Eagles-Cowboys), you were left confused, slightly disturbed, with a throbbing headache, vowing to never go back. The slate had all kinds of sloppiness: bad weather, bad performances from quarterbacks (Jared Goff, Jimmy Garoppolo), even a full-on punch from Bears WR Javon Wims. The nightcap game was arguably one of the worst football games ever televised, with the Cowboys’ Ben DiNucci and Eagles’ Carson Wentz trying to one-up each other with futility on every play. But on a positive note, it was still NFL football, and there were still storylines. Here’s what we learned from some of the winners: Steelers edge Ravens 28-24: best team in the AFC?

    The first Miss America in 1921. Hulton Archive/Getty Images The first Miss America pageant was held on September 8, 1921. It originally started as a way to keep tourists in Atlantic City after Labor Day. It's now a huge organization that prides itself on handing out scholarships. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year's pageant was pushed back until December 2021. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. While this year's Miss America was pushed back to December 2021, the competition has traditionally been held the weekend after Labor Day, commonly signaling the end of summer and beginning of fall. Miss America first took place in 1921. Designed to attract tourists to Atlantic City, New Jersey, there weren't many rules (yet) — in fact, winners were partially judged on applause. Back then, only a handful of women participated, but the pageant grew quickly. In the almost 100 years since, it has become a huge organization that provides scholarships to women, and encourages female empowerment. The Miss America pageants of the '20s are a far cry from what they...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — High school football weather in Minnesota consists of warm summer nights to start season, slowly fading into an autumn chill worthy of gloves and blankets in the stands. That order will be reversed this year with the Minnesota State High School League’s decision to move the fall football season to spring, a time when winter can linger long enough to create a new set of outdoor challenges. Sam Bauer is an agronomist and owner of Bauer Turf, LLC. He specializes in soil and grass management. “The concern about football in March and April is real,” Bauer said. He said grass football fields in the fall are warm and have a cushion to them. In early spring, they’re frozen. “When those fields are frozen, they basically act like pavement, and any type of contact sport that’s held on those fields can be an issue as far as injuries go,” he said. The long-term effects of a spring season could be damaging to grass fields as well. Football cleats can chew up the field — that is if they...
    A year after a gunman opened fire at the beloved Gilroy Garlic Festival, killing two San Jose children, little progress has been made on San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo’s plan for first-of-its-kind measure to curb gun violence. The mayor’s proposed ordinance, which he unveiled just two weeks after the shooting, would require gun owners in the nation’s 10th largest city to either carry liability insurance or pay a fee to cover taxpayer costs — such as emergency response and medical care — associated with gun violence. Liccardo’s novel idea gained widespread national media attention at the time — from the New York Times to CNN to the Washington Post. But just as episodes of gun violence can quickly fall from the news cycle and the public eye, in some ways, so has the mayor’s proposal. Over the past year, staff in the mayor’s office have been working with representatives from the Giffords Law Center to understand the legal parameters of such an ordinance and acquire funding. But when the COVID-19 pandemic struck the region five months ago, work on the ordinance came...
