    by Trevor Schakohl   More than 75% of probable voters said they would not likely back candidates supporting policies that stop police from detaining criminals charged with violent offenses, according to a new poll, with a state measure set to potentially free some violent crime suspects. About 76.9% of respondents said they would not be at all likely to vote for a candidate supportive of such policies toward criminals facing violent charges like kidnapping and armed robbery, according to the September poll by the Trafalgar Group partnered with Convention of States Action.

    In Pennsylvania, the gubernatorial campaign of Republican nominee Doug Mastriano has been a major source of anxiety to Democrats as well as Never Trump conservatives. State Sen. Mastriano, a Christian nationalist and conspiracy theorist who believes the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump, is even to the right of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas or Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — and he believes that Pennsylvania Republicans should be able to simply throw out any election results they don’t like. One of Mastriano’s critics on the right is veteran conservative columnist George Will, an ex-Republican who has no use for former President Donald Trump and the MAGA movement. In a September 25 column for the Washington Post, Will lays out some reasons why Mastriano is not only dangerous for Pennsylvania, but also, for the United States on the whole. According to Will, Pennsylvania’s gubernatorial race is “the 2022 election that poses the most risk to the nation.” “Suppose voters pick the Republican candidate, Doug Mastriano,” the 81-year-old Will warns. “And suppose that late in the evening of November...
    Rihanna will be the “Only Girl” at the Super Bowl halftime show. The “Umbrella” singer announced her new gig Sunday, sharing a photo on social media of a hand holding a football in the air that was then retweeted by the NFL and Roc Nation, which has a long-term deal with the NFL to “advise” on the halftime show performer. “Rihanna is a generational talent, a woman of humble beginnings who has surpassed expectations at every turn,” Roc Nation founder Jay-Z said in a statement. “A person born on the small island of Barbados who became one of the most prominent artists ever. Self-made in business and entertainment.” Seth Dudowsky, who oversees music at the NFL, also called her a “once-in-a-generation artist who has been a cultural force throughout her career.” With week 3 of the NFL underway, Super Bowl 2023 is still almost five months out but the headlining gig was already cause for rampant rumor-mongering. Taylor Swift, who has a new album due out in October, was the talk of the town late last week, but reportedly passed...
    President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta Raphael W. Bostic speaks at a European Financial Forum event in Dublin, Ireland February 13, 2019.Clodagh Kilcoyne | Reuters Raphael Bostic, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, appeared on CBS' "Face The Nation" Sunday morning with a continued commitment to the 2% inflation target and a cautiously optimistic outlook on the path to get there. The nation's central bank hiked the targeted federal funds rate by 75 basis points to between 3 and 3 1/4 Wednesday. Bostic believes that the Federal Reserve can achieve its goal of 2% inflation without severely damaging the economy. "I do think that we're going to do all that we can at the Federal Reserve to avoid deep, deep pain." Bostic told "Face the Nation." The most recent report clocked inflation at 8.3% through the past year. The Fed is aiming to temper demand in the economy so prices can stabilize, but some fear that the strict policies might initiate further economic turmoil. Bostic recognized that there will likely be...
    The MOL Maneuver container ship sails into port under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in the lower bay of the New York Harbor on March 25, 2021 in New York City.Gary Hershorn | Corbis News | Getty Images Historic import and export container processing in the month of August pushed the Port of New York and New Jersey to the No. 1 spot outpacing both the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. This comes as the flow of trade continues to move away from the West Coast with logistics managers worried about a labor strike or lockout. The Port of Los Angeles ranked third in the nation in August, moving 805,314 total containers. That was 37,877 less than the Port of New York and New Jersey, which moved 843,191. The Port of Long Beach came in second, moving 806,940 export and import containers. "We are exceeding pre-Covid numbers. It is astonishing, and it is a credit to the men and women who are moving the cargo with such efficiency," said Kevin O'Toole, chairman of the Port Authority. "Our planning with rail...
    Donald Trump Jr. and other members of the GOP are outraged as the media remains 'totally silent' over the death of a Republican teenager who was ran over by a 'liberal extremist.' Cayler Ellingson, 18, was mowed down by Shannon Brandt, 41, in North Carolina after attending a street dance party on Sunday. Brandt previously told State Radio that he got into an altercation with the teenager about politics and believed Ellingson was part of a 'Republican extremist group.'  'An 18-year-old conservative is murdered by 41-year-old leftest and the media is totally silent,' Trump Jr. wrote on Twitter.  'No connection to Joe Biden and his insane speech of just 2 weeks ago… it’s as though it never happened & doesn’t matter. Of course Trump would not get that benefit b/c our media is broken!'  Don Jr. referenced Biden's 'Soul of the Nation' speech in Philadelphia on September 1, where the president slammed Donald Trump and characterized 'MAGA Republicans' as a threat to democracy. Conservatives have criticized the media's double standards and silence in covering the Republican teenager's death after Biden inflamed...
    Colombia President Gustavo Petro announced 'the war on drugs has failed' in his first address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday while proposing changes to the nation's drug laws that could end in legalization cocaine. In a response to Petro's statements, the nation's former president, Ivan Duque, 46, told FOX News that he believes the current president's views could lead to the drug's legalization - and possible security risks in the United States. 'What worries me is that there is now the possibility of getting into the permission, or the legalization of, cocaine and consumption,' Duque said Friday. 'I think that it will be very bad for Colombia, and that will be very bad for the countries in the hemisphere, and I think that could generate also a majority security threat to the United States.' Petro, 62, who began his term on August 4, added that humanity's 'addiction to irrational power, profit and money' has been more damaging than drug addiction. 'What is more poisonous for humanity, cocaine, coal or oil?' he asked. 'The opinion of power has...
    "There are so many socioeconomic differences in the country," said Chelsea Carter, a Democrat who took part in the poll. "It really depends where you were born on the strata," she said. "When you really look at what has given you a leg up, it is people who were able to support and supplement my life in a way that isn't fair," she remarked, pointing to how she had the opportunity to go to private college and get assistance with student loans from her parents.
    A majority of Republican voters favor establishing a national religion in the United States of America, according to the results of a survey conducted by Politico and the University of Maryland that was published on Wednesday. The poll contained two key questions. The first asked respondents if they believed that the Constitution allows for an official state religion. READ MORE: 'Without the Bible, there is no America': Josh Hawley goes full Christian nationalist Forty-three percent of Republicans said yes and fifty-seven percent said no. The second question was if those polled would "favor or oppose the United States officially declaring the United States to be a Christian nation?" Sixty-one percent of Republicans said they would, while only thirty-nine percent said that they would not. The First Amendment to the Constitution explicitly forbids such an action: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of...
    Roseanne Barr is set to return to the big screen after being dramatically fired by ABC for an allegedly racist tweet towards an advisor to Barack Obama. The 69-year-old will produce and star in A Roseanne Comedy Special - with 'no subjects off limits -' on Fox Nation next year. The one-hour comedy special will be her first in 16 years, according to the media outlet.

    KING Charles is grief-stricken for the loss of his mother, yes. But his expression of utter desolation throughout the funeral suggests an extra weight on his shoulders, that of expectation and duty. 7King Charles is grief-stricken for the loss of his motherCredit: AFP 7But Pengate must be a one-off display of petulant irritability At the age of 73, when the majority of us are hanging up the tools of our trades and spending more time with our begonias, King Charles is only just starting one of the biggest jobs in the world. Perhaps worse, he has an incredibly tough act to follow. Her Majesty the Queen was a comforting constant through times of crisis who never seemed to view life through the prism of herself. In a modern world blighted by oversharing, she shared little, if any, of her opinions — which, considering she was educated, quick-witted and bright, must have felt deeply frustrating at times.

    RUSSIA should pay World War II style reparations to Ukraine to help rebuild the war-torn nation after the war is over, Liz Truss said tonight.

    The former leader of the free world spoke for 103 minutes at a Saturday campaign rally in Ohio. As his long-winded speech began winding down, dramatic music played while Donald Trump continued speaking. "This is deeply, deeply weird," tweeted Tom Nichols of The Atlantic. "It really is Jonestown-level stuff. These people are worshiping a real estate developer from Queens who can barely hold a thought in his head," he wrote. "This is beyond un-American. It's psychotic." The conservative writer suggested Democrats run ads featuring Trump's Youngstown rally. "I think Democrats should run clips of the weird culty shit that just happened at the Trump rally and ask: "Is this the party you want running the country? Trump is the best weapon Democrats have," Nichols wrote. Retired four-star General Barry McCaffrey sounded alarmed. "Astonishing Trump language. The crowd is similar to a Nuremberg rally in 1936," he wrote. "A lawless Trump in office in the 2024 election would slide us into autocracy and deny our Constitutional safeguards. This is our greatest danger as a nation since 1860," McCaffrey warned. Former Education...
    The Queen Consort will tomorrow pay a televised tribute to the late Queen, recalling her 'wonderful blue eyes' and saying: 'I will always remember her smile.' On the eve of the State funeral, Camilla will speak warmly of her admiration for her mother-in-law, and for the way she carved out a role while being in the difficult position of a 'solitary woman' in a man's world. The prerecorded address will be broadcast on the BBC shortly before a one-minute silence in honour of Elizabeth II at 8pm. Camilla will say: 'She has been part of our lives for ever. I'm 75 now and I can't remember anyone except the Queen being there. 'It must have been so difficult for her being a solitary woman. There weren't women Prime Ministers or Presidents. She was the only one, so I think she carved her own role.' Remembering her personal connection to the Queen, Camilla will add: 'She's got those wonderful blue eyes... when she smiles they light up her whole face. I will always remember her smile. That smile is unforgettable.'  On...
    by Ambassador Callista L. Gingrich and Speaker Newt Gingrich   In Philadelphia 235 years ago today, 39 delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the U.S. Constitution. Eleven years had passed since the Declaration of Independence was adopted, and this historic event marked an important milestone for our remarkable experiment in self-government. The signing of the U.S. Constitution was the symbolic reward for years of toil and bloodshed in the Revolutionary War. It signaled to the world that the principles of freedom, liberty, and representative government would prevail. In a more practical sense, it was the official start of our new nation’s government. For more than 200 years, states and local governments recognized Constitution Day in various ways. It has been called “I am an American Day” and “Citizenship Day.” However, it was not federally recognized until 2004, when former Senator Robert Byrd offered the Constitution Day amendment to the fiscal year 2005 Consolidated Appropriations Act.  Along with officially observing Constitution Day nationwide, this amendment mandated that all federal employees receive training materials on the U.S. Constitution when they begin...

    ABC Season 19 of "The Men Tell All." It’s no secret that many celebrities are huge fans of “The Bachelor” – often in a love it/hate it type of way – just like many Bachelor Nation enthusiasts. One of those celebrities is Justin Long.Long Performed Like a ‘Performer’ View this post on Instagram A post shared by The Tonight Show (@fallontonight) Known for his roles in “Live Free or Die Hard” with Bruce Willis, the cult-classic horror movie, “Drag Me to Hell” and “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story” with Ben Stiller, Long has a lengthy acting resume. He recently added a new comedy/horror movie to that resume called “Barbarian.” In a September 9 interview with The Wrap, Long, who is an avid “Bachelor/Bachelorette” fan, admitted that he modeled his “douche-y” character in the film after an amalgam of unlikeable Bachelor Nation cast members.

    Lara Logan, the former CBS News reporter and Fox Nation host, has claimed First Lady Jill Biden 'knows that her husband has dementia' and is 'lying to the whole country about it.' Logan, who was ousted from Fox Nation late last year, made the assertion in an interview with Newsmax TV on Thursday, without offering proof. Biden, 79, has strenuously rejected similar allegations in the past. 'You’re never going to see the New York Times doing an article about the fact that Jill Biden is propping up her husband,' Logan told the network's host Eric Bolling.  'I mean, if you want to know something that is truly reprehensible and disgusting, is here is this woman who knows that her husband has dementia, and yet she’s lying to the whole country,' she added.

    A "spirit bear" in British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest.Ken Canning/Getty Images This story was originally published by Atlas Obscura and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. No one knows how long diesel had been seeping from a crack in the tanker truck, parked at an old cannery on the bank of Rivers Inlet, a fjord about 300 miles north of Vancouver in the heart of Wuikinuxv First Nations Territory. By the time somebody noticed, more than 2,000 gallons of fuel had leaked onto shore and into a waterway teeming with crab, salmon, and spawning candlefish. On February 15, 2021, within an hour of being notified about the impending disaster, members of the Wuikinuxv Coastal Guardian Watchmen program arrived on the scene, assessing and containing the spill. The next day, fellow guardians from the neighboring Heiltsuk Nation came with supplies and additional manpower. By the time provincial officers showed up three days later, 90 percent of the spill area had already been contained. “We were…frustrated” by rampant poaching and illegal logging in Kitasoo/Xai’Xais Nation territory. “So we bought a boat...
    ABC 'Bachelor' franchise host, Jesse Palmer Ever since Jesse Palmer took over as the host of “The Bachelor” franchise, he has been more than happy to let Bachelor Nation in on his opinions.

However, he told co-hosts Becca Kufrin and Michelle Young, “it’s been new” and “it’s been fresh,” which Palmer thinks is a welcome change to the “formulaic” setup that audiences have become accustomed to over the years. When asked if he thought that the show could work with two male leads, Palmer replied, “I think so. I think the...
    President Joe Biden said Thursday a tentative railway labor agreement has been reached, averting a potentially devastating strike before the pivotal midterm elections. He said the tentative deal 'will keep our critical rail system working and avoid disruption of our economy.' The agreement is 'an important win for our economy and the American people,' Biden said in a statement. 'It is a win for tens of thousands of rail workers who worked tirelessly through the pandemic to ensure that America's families and communities got deliveries of what have kept us going during these difficult years.' Biden said the rail workers will get better pay, improved working conditions and 'peace of mind around their health care costs: all hard-earned.' He called the agreement 'a victory for railway companies' and said they would be able to 'retain and recruit more workers for an industry that will continue to be part of the backbone of the American economy for decades to come.'

    (CNN)Union bosses and rail chiefs, called to Washington by the Biden administration, bargained deep into Wednesday evening to avert a national freight railroad strike for one simple reason -- the consequences of a prolonged shutdown would be disastrous.A nation still clawing its way back from a fragile and redefined sense of normality after the Covid-19 pandemic and facing the worst spikes in food prices since 1979 can't afford yet another blow. An extended halt of the vast freight trains that snake across the prairies and north to Canada and south to Mexico could cause a full blown economic, social and political crisis -- one with huge implications for President Joe Biden and Democrats ahead of November's midterm elections.Heres how the freight rail strike could affect youA quarter of the way into the 21st century, it's a little shocking that a rail network that most Americans probably don't spare a thought for still forms an economic backbone of the nation.

    The nation's broadcasters were called upon once more to transmit the melancholy glory of another day in the death of our Queen. And amid the massing of the military, resplendent in their scarlet and gold, complete with ceremonial trimmings of frogging and ruff, one question burned. How many more last journeys could Elizabeth II make? 'The Queen will leave for the final time shortly,' said Anna Botting for Sky News. 'The Queen will leave Buckingham Palace for the very last time,' said Chris Ship for ITV. And even once the journey began, no one was sounding the last post for the last time. 'Now passing under the great arch for the last time, Queen Elizabeth II,' solemnly intoned the BBC's Fergal Keane, sounding for a moment as if he were reporting on the voyage of a cruise ship. The cortege left Buckingham Palace and headed east, straight towards Alastair Bruce for Sky. 'The Mall is waiting to embrace the late Queen as she comes down through this canopy of trees for the last time,' he said 'The Queen will leave...

    The first U.S. healthcare worker to be infected with MPX while on the job has been reported in Los Angeles County, public health officials said Tuesday, the day after the county confirmed the nation’s first MPX death. “We have identified a healthcare worker with monkeypox who appears to have been exposed to the virus at their worksite,” Dr. Rita Singhal, chief medical officer for the L.A. County Department of Public Health, said in a presentation to the Board of Supervisors. “This is the first case of monkeypox in a healthcare worker in the United States that has been linked to a worksite exposure.” Singhal said the county has consulted about the case with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials, but the risk of MPX for healthcare workers “remains very low.” The L.A. County Department of Public Health declined to answer additional questions about the healthcare worker’s condition or how the virus was contracted, but Singhal said officials will continue to share information about infection prevention with medical professionals, including personal protective equipment guidance.

    Prince William and Kate Middleton may have only officially become the Prince and Princess of Wales a few days ago - but the royal couple have long had a special connection with the country. In his first televised address to the nation since the death of the Queen on Friday night, King Charles III confirmed his son William would inherit his title of the Prince of Wales and his wife Kate would become Princess.  And sources said the new Princess ‘appreciates the history’ associated with the role of the Princess of Wales but wants to create her ‘own path’.  King Charles' own position as Prince of Wales wasn't without controversy - he was announced the title at the age of nine, and there were fears of nationalist violence at  his investiture ceremony in 1969.   However William and Kate's bond with the country has been ongoing for years - with Kate going on her first official royal engagement in Anglesey, where the couple would later have their first family home with George. Meanwhile they later took the nine-year-old and his seven-year-old sister Charlotte on their...
