    MEMPHIS Grizzlies star Ja Morant has pulled off another outrageous dunk, this time over one of the tallest players in the NBA. Morant, 23, posterized Jakob Poeltl, a 7-foot-1 San Antonio Spurs center, while leading the Grizzlies to a 135-129 win on Wednesday. 2Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant posterized San Antonio Spurs center Jakob Poeltl, who is 7'1'' tall on WednesdayCredit: Getty 2At 6'2'', Morant is nearly a foot shorter than PoeltlCredit: Getty Images - Getty San Antonio put up a fight against Memphis, reducing a 19-point deficit to single digits late in the fourth quarter. But Morant made sure the Spurs wouldn't complete their comeback, scoring nine of his 38 points in the final period. One of his buckets stood out in particular as with under four minutes left, he dribbled past Steven Adams setting a high screen for the All-Star guard. That created a one-on-one opportunity with Poeltl — and Morant took advantage of the mismatch in spectacular fashion.

    Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) pleaded with President Joe Biden to visit the country’s southern border with Mexico Wednesday amid what he called a “crisis.” Cuellar joined CNN This Morning where he and host Kaitlan Collins discussed an influx of migrants crossing and the potential for thousands a day more when the Covid-era policy, Title 42, ends next week. The policy allows for the Department of Homeland Security to quickly expel migrants back to their home countries without allowing them to seek asylum. “Congressman, if title 42 ends as scheduled, how much more difficult does managing the migrant crisis become, do you believe?” Collins asked Cuellar. “Communities are going to be overwhelmed,” he responded. “We’ve seen that in the past with Rio Grande Valley and Del Rio. They’re going to be overwhelmed.” Cuellar said Biden can show compassion to migrants while still showing border communities the White House cares. Collins then asked him if he feels the Biden administration views the situation on the border with any kind of “urgency.” “I don’t think they do, or if they do, they just...
    A bipartisan team of House members came together Wednesday morning to launch an anti-suicide campaign among 'overworked' border agents, 14 of whom have taken their own life this year.  'When when you're overworked, I don't care what your work is. If you're working at Chick-Fil-A, and you're overworked to death or doesn't matter where you're at, if you're overworked. There's no doubt that impacts your life,' Texas Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales, who represents 800 miles of the 2,000-mile long border between U.S. and Mexico, said in a news conference outside the Capitol.  Between 2007 when Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) began tracking suicides and  2022, 149 agents have died by suicide.  'There's no doubt that the what is happening at the border is impacting our agents,' he added. 'If we can't if we as lawmakers here in DC can't come together on preventing people from killing themselves. What can we come to?' 'When when you're overworked, I don't care what your work is.

    Charlemagne tha God slammed Democrats for not having anyone better than Joe Biden to run for president in 2024.  The radio and TV host told Fox News that the president cannot be Democrat's choice to run against Donald Trump, or, in his opinion, the more popular Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has been touted as the GOP's best option.  Speaking of Democrats, Charlemagne said: 'I personally don't see the person that they could put up in 2024 that could really galvanize and energize people. I mean, the fact that Biden is still their safest bet, I think that's sad, too.' The Comedy Central host has been critical of Biden in the past, saying the president is currently marred in controversy over his son, Hunter.   He noted that Vice President Kamala Harris would fair no better, saying that unless 'something magically changes,' she would be crushed by Trump or DeSantis.  Charlemagne added that it would be Southern states like Florida who will ultimately influence who wins the election, not liberal strongholds like New York and California.  Fox News Privacy Policy Charlemagne...
    Fox & Friends gave Charlamagne Tha God credit for acknowledging that the United States is more sociopolitically conservative than some liberals want to admit. The Breakfast Club host came up on Tuesday as Fox & Friends discussed his interview with Fox News Digital. In the interview, Charlamagne called it “sad” that President Joe Biden is still the best person Democrats can come up with to challenge Donald Trump’s 2024 run. He also expressed hope that a new candidate will emerge among the Democrats who would do more to inspire people before the 2024 election. Fox & Friends broke down Charlamagne’s comments by debating over the praise he gave in the interview with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. After that, they touched on the point when Charlamagne warned Democrats that Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) would be a “formidable opponent” because Florida is a political bellwether. What would make them think he can’t win the national election? Sorry to tell you all, man. I’m from South Carolina. More of the country is more like Florida than we may want to believe. But the...
    With five days to go until the midterm elections, Seth Meyers spent his “A Closer Look” segment on Thursday going after the most extreme Republican candidates who could “still easily win” their races, including Mehmet Oz, Kari Lake, and, of course, Herschel Walker. After Barack Obama went after Walker on the campaign trail in Georgia, the Georgia Senate candidate went on Fox News to say he’d put his résumé up against the former president’s “any time of the day.” “You do?” the Late Night host asked in response. “That’s like me saying, ‘Einstein? I’m way smarter than him. That dope could never do a day drinking with Post Malone.’” “Look, you don’t have Obama’s résumé,” Meyers continued. “You know how I know? Obama never had to flash a fake sheriff’s badge like he was cosplaying as Deputy Dog. The dude was president of the Harvard Law Review, senator, president, he’s won a Grammy, an Emmy, he won TIME’s Person of the Year, he went kite-surfing with Richard Branson, and now he’s got a Netflix deal where he produces movies...
    Small businesses in various states are struggling to pay their rent, a new report shows, with rent delinquency up nearly 40 percent on the month.  The findings, published Tuesday by Boston-based business tracker Alignable, are raising more than a eyebrows, as they illustrate the stark effect inflation is having on everyday Americans.  The survey of 4,789 randomly selected small business owners saw that more than half of respondents say their rent is at least 10 percent higher than six months ago. If you go back seven months, the majority said their rents had have increased by at least 20 percent. Moreover, the study found that roughly 37 percent of small businesses - almost half of all Americans working in the private sector - were left unable to pay rent in October.   Compounding concerns is the fact that several states, such as New York, and California, are well over the already-high national average.

    President Joe Biden stretched the truth during an interview on Thursday where he claimed that the United States wasn't suffering record inflation. Having already lied about gas prices being down compared to when he took office, he was asked by a reporter about the 8.2 percent inflation America is currently dealing with. The reporter from News Nation asked: 'You've referred to the midterm election as a choice rather than a referendum. Given record inflation, why should voters choose Democrats?' Biden replied: 'Because it's not record inflation anymore, I'm bringing it down. Look what we inherited.'  While inflation is down slightly from a 40-year-high in June of 9.1 percent, the 8.2 percent is still higher than at any point in the previous four decades.   President Joe Biden stretched the truth during an interview on Thursday where he claimed that the United States wasn't suffering record inflation While inflation is down slightly from a 40-year-high in June of 9.1 percent, the 8.2 percent is still higher than at any point in the previous four decades Biden got some mildly good news earlier this week...
    Andrew Weissmann, the former counsel of the FBI and prosecutor for Robert Mueller’s special counsel team, said that recent reports that the FBI is questioning more and more people suggests that the investigation into the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago is moving much quicker than previously understood. On a panel with former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, Weissmann explained that the fact that the Justice Department is seeking information from Trump’s personal valet, Walt Nauta and the Presidential Records Act appointed aide Kash Patel “is a real sign that the investigation is way past the beginning stages.” “I’m particularly intrigued by the fact that the government appears to be seeking an order from the chief judge of the D.C. District Court compelling Mr. Patel to testify,” Weissmann continued. “That is — that’s a very bold step to be taking at this point. It makes it clear that the government is not looking to bring a criminal case against Mr. Patel, but is willing to immunize him and put him in the grand jury, because they want to know the...
    Nicki Minaj and Latto went at it on social media on Thursday after the Anaconda rapper took to Twitter to complain about her single Super Freaky Girl being moved from a rap to pop category at the Grammy Awards. After initially lambasting the Grammy's decision, the 39-year-old rapper and singer appeared to bring Latto, 23, into the discussion when she claimed that her song Big Energy should also have been moved to the pop category. The tweet launched a back-and-forth between the two artists that quickly escalated, with Latto poking fun at Nicki's age and pointing out that her husband Kenneth Petty previously pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted rape in the 1990s.

    New revelations about the dramatic call between House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and Donald Trump on January 6 were revealed on Tuesday morning. It's been previously reported that the two had a fiery exchange as the former president's supporters stormed the US Capitol last year.  But a new book excerpt shared in Politico suggests McCarthy - who remains a close ally of Trump's - was furious enough to swear at the leader of his party while he shrugged off the attack on McCarthy and his colleagues. In a conversation previously confirmed by fellow lawmakers, Trump told him after the mob had already breached the Capitol, 'Well, Kevin, I guess these people are more upset about the election than you are.' 'More upset?' the California Republican was said to have yelled back. 'They're going to f***ing kill me!' The excerpt is from journalist Robert Draper's upcoming book, Weapons of Mass Delusion: When the Republican Party Lost Its Mind.  McCarthy had forcefully denounced Trump in the immediate aftermath of the riot, but later made a public about-face when he visited the former president at...

    The US Interior Department on Thursday said it had completed the removal of the word 'squaw' from nearly 650 place names on federal land, saying the term should have been removed long ago. The department had said in November of last year that it was beginning a process to do away the word, a term for indigenous women that many Native Americans find offensive. 'I feel a deep obligation to use my platform to ensure that our public lands and waters are accessible and welcoming,' said Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, the first Native American to lead a cabinet agency, in a statement. 'That starts with removing racist and derogatory names that have graced federal locations for far too long,' she added. More than 600 locations on federal land have been renamed. The changes included renaming California's 'Squaw Valley' (above) the site of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, 'Olympic Valley' A map shows the nearly 650 locations on federal land that were renamed under the program Interior said a task force established to oversee the name changes had received more than...
    "Did the sitting President of the United States just say that he's willing to turn the military on citizens?" read another response. Others pointed out the irony of Biden saying more than guns are needed to fight the U.S. government on the one-year anniversary of his order to pull the U.S. military out of Afghanistan. Biden made similar comments in June 2021, but added that Americans would need "maybe some nuclear weapons" to fight against the U.S. government.

    Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway claimed that President Joe Biden comparing the philosophy behind Trumpism to semi-fascism is “more hateful” than anything said by former President Donald Trump. Hemingway, the editor of The Federalist and a renowned Trump booster, discussed Biden’s latest comments about the MAGA movement on Monday’s Outnumbered. At a recent event with Democratic donors, Biden called out “extreme” Republicans, saying: “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something, it’s like semi-fascism.” Those remarks have prompted outrage and hourly segments on Fox News. On Outnumbered, hosts noted that DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison defended the president, by arguing he was being frank about Republicans threatening to undermine elections. Just on Monday, Trump demanded he be named winner of the 2020 election, or that a new election be immediately held. Instead of noting Trump’s continuous lying about the 2020 election, former Trump press secretary-turned-Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany commented that “the head of the Democratic National Committee on a Sunday show [was] saying ‘we have a consistent message of hatred as our message.'”...
    A private jet that belongs to Steven Spielberg has burned through more than $116,000 worth of jet fuel since June despite the Hollywood director claiming that he's 'terrified of climate change.' The Gulfstream G650 jet has clocked 16 trips spanning 17,000 miles since June 23, according to flight tracking data from ADS-B Exchange that was compiled by Celebrity Jets and reported by Fox News this week.   Spielberg has previously spoken out about his fear of global warming, calling for 'everyone' to be mindful that it could 'pose a danger to your children and grandchildren.' 'I'm terrified of [global warming],' Spielberg said in a 2018 interview for his film 'Ready Player One.' 'Global warming is a scientific reality. It's not a political trick.

    That dreaded feeling of forgetfulness the morning after you've had one too many will be familiar to many Britons. But according to surprising new research, those who sleep soundly are far less likely to remember their drunken antics, compared to troubled sleepers. Researchers at University of Missouri School of Medicine in the US had set out to study the impact of heavy alcohol consumption on insomniacs – people who have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Historically, studies have suggested that the condition worsens the effects of booze and increases the risk of a blackout – a term used to described alcohol-induced memory loss. Professor Angelo DiBello, at Rutgers Center of Alcohol and Substance Use, and an investigator on the study, says: 'Because insomnia has been shown to impair memory and cognitive functioning, we thought that participants in our study with severe insomnia and high alcohol intake would also have the highest rates of blackout frequency.' However, the results, which were published earlier this month, showed completely the opposite effect. Historically, studies have suggested that insomnia worsens the effects of...
    The Polish leader today defended Finland's party-loving Prime Minister, saying he was 'very happy' to see her enjoying a night out. Sanna Marin has made headlines across the globe after she was captured on video having a raucous evening on the town with friends. She yesterday insisted that 'everyone needs a fun and relaxed evening out' and that she should be allowed to let her hair down after spending most of her time juggling the responsibilities of governing and being a mother. The 36-year-old, who is married, added that 'nothing inappropriate' happens in the clip that shows her dancing hip-to-hip with male pop singer Olavi Uusivirta in Helsinki's Klubi nightclub at 4am, and said her only regret is that 'private' videos had made it into the public domain. Ms Marin said she has also submitted to a drugs test to prove her innocence after more footage taken earlier in the evening and which leaked yesterday showed her dancing with friends in a house while someone in the background shouts 'flour gang'. 'Flour' is Finnish slang often used to refer to cocaine....
    A New York State Senator sparked fury with a recent tweet that suggested that older lawmakers who are 'past childbearing age' have 'less fight' in them than younger counterparts and won't fight as hard for reproductive rights. Biaggi, 36, posted the Twitter thread last month, which spurred some initial backlash, but the spark was ignited this week when the progressive candidate embraced an attack mailer against her and shared it, resurfacing her initial message.  In the initial July 5 thread posted to Twitter by Biaggi, a progressive running on a message of generational change, read: 'At the risk of sounding ageist, it's still important to ask: when a majority of Congress is past child-bearing age, how fierce can we expect their fight to be?'  Biaggi following up with another tweet, writing that 'elders' have value but need to make space for younger leaders.  This week, the thread has resurfaced in the midst of Biaggi's Democratic primary bid to take down five-term Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and has reignited attacks ahead of Primary Day on Tuesday. Biaggi shared an image of the attack mailer that...
    During Monday’s episode of Fox News’s The Five, guest co-host Will Cain argued that the FBI better have something more than Trump stealing the nuclear codes to justify their search of Mar-a-Lago last week. Co-host, Dana Perino, who opined last week that “short of the nuclear codes being written on these documents locked behind closed doors” she couldn’t imagine what could have justified the raid, took Cain’s comments as an opportunity to note she was just joking. The exchange began with Perino noting it’s been “a week tonight” since the raid. “We found out about the search warrant. I don’t know if we actually know all that much more because honestly, it is a little bit hard to keep up with,” she added. “I’m not losing interest in it at all. I’m just kind of frustrated about not having any information,” she concluded, before Cain jumped in. “But I think it will stay in an intentionally ambiguous place a blank slate that serves the FBI and the DOJ’s purpose of finding anything,” Cain then argued, not mentioning it was the...
    Britney Spears has been accused of racism after she said that her teenage sons were growing up in a house with more marijuana than a slew of famous faces - all of them black. The 40-year-old singer is currently in the midst of an explosive and highly-public row with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, who last week told DailyMail.com their sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15, do not want to see their mother.  Spears posted a lengthy retort on Instagram, attacking Federline's parenting and claiming the boys were being raised in a household 'has more weed than Ludacris, 50 Cent, Jay Z and Puff Daddy combined.' Britney Spears, seen in a video she posted to Instagram, has accused her ex-husband of surrounding their teenage sons with marijuana Several Twitter users bashed Britney Spears for her Instagram post where she mentioned a series of African-American rappers as part of a rebuttal toward ex-husband Kevin Federline.

    President Joe Biden hammered opponents of the Inflation Reduction Act that Democratic leaders want to call up within days during a 'virtual' event from the White House amid his ongoing covid isolation. 'Look at the facts!' he told critics of the deal, which represents a last-ditch effort to salvage key climate and health elements of his domestic agenda. 'Despite what some folks are saying, the Inflation Reduction Act makes sure that no one earning less than $400,000 a year will pay a penny more in federal taxes, notwithstanding all these ads you see on television,' he said during a virtual event with labor and corporate leaders as well as Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. He was referencing vocal opposition to the deal as Democrats scramble to nail down 50 votes for it after West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin reached agreement on the measure with Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer.

    Noam Chomsky believes the Untied States is on a treacherous path and warns the country is becoming worse than the former Soviet Union. A clip circulating Twitter from conservative site The Post Millennial shows Chomsky in a recent interview with Russell Brand on his podcast Under the Skin. Chomsky said the United States today “is living under a kind of totalitarian culture, which has never existed in my lifetime and is much worse in many ways than the Soviet Union before (Mikhail) Gorbachev.” He credited this shift to a lack of worldly information available to Americans. “Go back to the 1970s, people in the Soviet Russia could access BBC, Voice of America, German television, if they wanted to find out the news,” he continued, “If today in the United States, you want to find out what Minister (Sergey) Lavrov of Russia is saying, you can’t do it. It’s barred. Americans are not permitted to hear what Russians are saying.” “Can’t get Russian television, can’t access Russian sources. That means also that fine American journalists like Chris Hedges, one of the...
    NBC Washington anchor Leon Harris sat down for an interview at the station Monday to discuss his struggles with sobriety — months after he caused a car crash while driving under the influence of alcohol in Montgomery County, Maryland, back in January. During the interview, Harris told Doreen Gentzler he was lucky he did not kill someone because he had become so used to driving while impaired. More Montgomery County News More Local News “In my condition, I could have killed somebody,” Harris said. “I was actually more impaired than I thought I was. I thought that, you know, after having about four glasses of wine, I was good. I wasn’t, and nobody’s going to be good after that.” Watch a portion of the interview below.

    A kindly Florida man has given away more than $13,000 to strangers he meets at Waffle House, according to a viral series of tweets from a former Obama campaign spokesman. The man - an unnamed, white haired elderly gentleman - was discovered by political ad maker Kevin Cate who saw him sitting alone in a booth at the diner in Midway, Florida, and attaching a pile of folded dollar bills to notes. When asked what he was doing, Cate said the man told him he'd been giving away $1 and $5 bills to kids and others since 2014. He told Cate that he attaches a note to each bill with the simple phrase 'Love Every Body' written in big bold letters.  The man said he prints and cuts the notes out every few days to assemble new batches of cash to give away.  Asked why he chose that phrase to hand out to so many people, the man told Cate that they were the last words his mother spoke to him before her death.  'Love every body,' he said to...

Hill launched his first podcast It Needed To Be Said, on June 10. He offered fans an inside look at his trade to the Dolphins from the Kansas City Chiefs, along with sports friendships he’s made a long the way. During the first episode, Hill and co-host — lawyerJulius Collins — began to discuss Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. “He’s ‘that’ dude, bro. Like what a lot of people don’t know. Like I’m not like — I’m not just sitting here just — I’m not just sitting here just saying this because he’s my quarterback now!” Hill said. “I’m not trying to get more targets right now.

Tua or Patrick Mahomes?” he asked. “I’m gonna go with 15 as...
    In a new poll out from Yahoo/YouGov, a whopping 64% of voters said that President Joe Biden should not run again in 2024. That’s nine points worse than how many say Donald Trump should not. Trump also won the head-to-head match-up in the poll. In the overall it was a convincing 64% majority that would dissuade Joe Biden. It was smaller but also a majority of 55% who would tell Trump no thanks. On the yes column, Biden pulled just 21% while Trump pulled ten points more at 31%. But it isn’t just in the overall where Biden’s numbers were bad. Even among Democrats a majority would not encourage a 2024 run, with only 43% saying yes he should, and a full 36% saying he should not. Trump got a majority yes from Republicans, at 58%, with only 25% saying no. It was even worse for Biden when narrowed down to those who voted for him 2020, where the nays had it 40% to 37%. On the head-to-head matchup, Trump beat Biden in the poll 42%...

    French Open boss Amelie Mauresmo has apologised for saying women's tennis had less appeal than the men's game.

    Fresh polling in Michigan revealed the political headwinds Democrats face heading into the midterm elections, which are shaping up to be a Republican wave that could sweep them from power locally and in Washington, D.C. In a mid-May survey commissioned for the Detroit Regional Chamber, President Joe Biden’s job approval rating in this key Midwestern battleground was an abysmal 36% among registered voters, with 55% disapproving. Additionally, 69% of Michigan voters said the United States is on the “wrong track,” with only 17% believing the country is on the “right track.” THE CBO CONFIRMS BIDENFLATION IS REAL Numbers like that usually portend defeat for the party in power — and Democrats are in charge, both in Washington, D.C., and in the Michigan governor’s mansion and other top state constitutional offices in Lansing. However, this May 9-13 survey also contained a bright spot for Democrats in Michigan. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s job approval rating is a respectable 49%, with 41% disapproving. "The bad news is [Whitmer’s] party is in power, and the voters are very angry over the economy," Richard Czuba, founder...

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell accused President Joe Biden of waging 'war' on fossil fuels Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell tore into President Joe Biden on Thursday for characterizing the gas price crisis as an 'incredible transition' for the nation and the world. The Kentucky Republican legislator was speaking on the Senate floor on the same day the nationwide average gas price hit a new high of $4.60 - just before roughly 39 million Americans gear up to travel for an extended holiday weekend. For his argument McConnell cited a recent analysis that shows American families are now spending an average $5,000 per year on gas.  That's compared to $2,800 the previous year and $3,800 just this past March, according to Yardeni Research. 'Nationwide, gas prices have risen 46.9 cents just in the last month. And in Kentucky they've risen, actually, even faster,' McConnell claimed. 'According to President Biden, it's all part of what call he calls a quote, "incredible transition." Well, that's a heck of a way to describe his administration's war on the most affordable, reliable, abundant...
    Tucker Carlson has fired back at Joe Biden as he claimed Democrats are poised on changing the demographics of the electorate in order to win elections. During his Fox segment on Tuesday, the media pundit played a 2015 clip of the then-Vice President's remarks at a White House conference on battling global extremism. Biden says: 'An unrelenting stream of immigration, nonstop, nonstop. Folks like me, who are Caucasian of European descent for the first time in 2017 will be in an absolute minority in the United States of America, absolute minority.' He continued: 'Fewer than 50 percent of the people in America from then on will be White European stock. That's not a bad thing. That's a source of our strength.' Carlson took aim at the Democratic Party, accusing them of bolstering immigration policies and sidelining white Americans in order to gain votes in the polls. 'So, you played clips of them saying it, and you're the deranged conspiracy nut,' Carlson said mockingly between laughs. 'The Democratic Party has decided then, rather than convince you, people who are born here,...
