    Fox News contributor Tom Homan continued to defend law enforcement’s actions during the tragic Uvalde school shooting on Friday, even after a police official admitted that cops made the “wrong decision” to wait while the gunman slaughtered children and teachers. During a stunning and heartbreaking press conference, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steven McCraw said officers on the scene of Tuesday’s horrific Robb Elementary massacre believed they were dealing with a “barricaded subject” after Salvador Ramos began shooting up a classroom. Believing they had time to retrieve keys and wait on backup and additional equipment, more than a dozen cops filled the hallway outside the room where Ramos killed 19 kids and two teachers, according to McCraw. Twenty-five minutes after police first arrived at the school, people inside the classroom began calling 911 pleading for help. It would be 47 additional minutes before tactical units finally entered the room, killing the shooter. “What do I say to the parents? I don’t have anything to say to the parents, other than what happened. We are not here to defend...
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus blamed “cancel culture” on the PGA’s decision to relocate this year’s championship to Tulsa, Oklahoma — and away from a New Jersey course owned by former President Donald Trump. The annual event was originally scheduled to be held at former Trump’s course in Bedminster. Nicklaus, who holds the record for the most major wins with 18, criticized PGA CEO Seth Waugh, who pulled the rug out from under Trump days after last January’s riot at the U.S. Capitol. “I like Seth Waugh,” Nicklaus told Michael Bamberger of Fire Pit Collective. “Seth didn’t need this job. He took the job because he thought he could give the PGA of America some good guidance.” Nicklaus said while Waugh is doing a good job running Golf’s covering body, the decision to pull a major from Trump was unfair. “But this move is cancel culture,” Nicklaus said. “Donald Trump may be a lot of things, but he loves golf and he loves this country. He’s a student of the game and a formidable figure in the game....

    Maher cited a recent study out of Johns Hopkins University that found lockdowns "had little to no effect on COVID-19 mortality" but "imposed enormous economic and social costs." He mocked, "Okay, that’s kind of a big one to get wrong." "Last July, President Biden said, 'You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.' Well, I already knew that was wrong then, and now we all do," Maher said of the president's remarks which have been fact-checked and found to be "exaggerated." "The former Director of the CDC, Robert Redfield, believes COVID originated in a lab, and now our intelligence agencies agree, it might have," the HBO host continued. "But for months on social media, it was banned to even discuss it." "Look, I’m not saying the medical establishment isn’t trying to figure s**t out, or that they’re corrupt — although there is some of that," Maher said. "But how about just wrong? Wrong a lot. Wrong about HIV, wrong about lockdowns, wrong about kids, wrong about how you couldn’t get it if you were vaccinated,"...
    AS any parent will know, getting kids ready in the morning can be a stressful experience. But mum-of-two Kati Wadsworth, who also happens to be an organisational expert, has revealed what she does at nighttime to make her mornings easier - and to save time. 4Kati Wadsworth preps her sons' breakfast drinks the night before to make her mornings easierCredit: customorganization/Tik Tok 4Once the juice and chocolate milk are ready, she pops in the fridgeCredit: customorganization/Tik Tok In a video shared on her TikTok page, Kati showed herself preparing her sons' "breakfast drinks" - orange juice and chocolate milk - and putting the glasses in the fridge ready for the morning.

    Jesse Watters expressed doubts over the possibility that the Texas synagogue hostage attack perpetrator was not known to law enforcement and said that some of the facts about the story were unclear, and potentially "suspicious," on "The Five" Monday. "This guy wasn't on your radar? Mr. President, you gave him a visa two weeks ago to come into this country. What kind of visa was it? Did you vet him? Was he on a watch list? Usually, the Feds are all over these people," Watters said. "And then they do a raid immediately in England with associates or people affiliated with them. So Scotland Yard didn't know anything about this? MI6 had no clue about this guy?" Law enforcement officials block a residential street near Congregation Beth Israel synagogue. (AP Photo/Gareth Patterson) The attack took place at Congregation Beth Israel Colleyville during Sabbath services on Saturday. Authorities named a British citizen, Malik Faisal Akram, 44, as the perpetrator. The ordeal was stopped after about ten hours when the rabbi threw a chair at Akram, allowing everyone to escape to...

    President Joe Biden admitted his agenda has gotten stuck as he gave an update Friday on the bipartisan infrastructure law.  'There's a lot of talk about disappointments and things we haven't gotten done,' he noted. 'We're gonna get a lot of them done, I might add,' the president added.  He then reiterated that he was elected to 'unite' the country, after taking heat from Republicans who called his Tuesday speech about voting rights in Georgia too divisive.  President Joe Biden admitted his agenda has gotten stuck as he gave an update Friday on the bipartisan infrastructure law. 'There's a lot of talk about disappointments and things we haven't gotten done,' he said. 'We're gonna get a lot of them done, I might add'  Former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu (left), who's overseeing the implementation of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, introduced President Joe Biden (right) at an event on the White House's campus Friday  'I ran for president to unite the country,' he said.

    A few months and approximately three variants ago, I was flying a kite at Venice Beach when a powerful gust of wind ripped the handle from my hands. The kite tore off across the beach, the handle bouncing in its wake. I ran after it as hard as I could, throwing up sprays of sand with my feet, but I never even got close. The kite was free. And having outrun me, the kite suddenly seemed to be in no hurry. It dipped, swirled and pinwheeled and began to perform tricks it never could in my hands. It hovered, as if enjoying the view, tracing a few languid loops left, then right. Pretty soon I decided to stop running (full disclosure: I was out of breath). I just watched the kite sign its taunting purple signature in the flinty blue sky. I don’t normally fly kites at the beach, but it’s one of the more whimsical ways I’ve tried to beat back the bleakness of the pandemic. A lot of us are doing that these days, clinging to the familiar...
    After a two-week break, reigning Jeopardy! champion Amy Schneider returns to American TV screens Monday having won 13 consecutive games, earning a whopping $536,400 and securing her place in the trivia game show’s history as the fourth-biggest winner in regular season-play, so far. Schneider even outpaced the average winnings of Ken Jennings, the former champion and now co-host of Jeopardy! by $7,000. He won 74 games in a row in 2004, a record that still stands. The software engineer is also the most successful out-transgender contestant in “Jeopardy!” history, her winning streak beginning during Trans Awareness Week. “Being trans is an important, huge foundational part of my identity and also, not,” Schneider told The Daily Beast from her home in Oakland, Calif. “I’m not going on Jeopardy! to be trans on Jeopardy! I’m going on Jeopardy! to try to win some money.” Schneider, 42, said competing on Jeopardy! is the culmination of a decades-long dream which had its origins in 1984, watching legendary host Alex Trebek launch a revival of the challenging quiz show with her family, when...

    Emily Ratajkowski alleges in her new book that Robin Thicke sexually assaulted her on the set of the Blurred Lines music video in 2013 — but she insists that she doesn't believe in 'canceling' him and doesn't even think he's a bad guy. The 30-year-old model — whose book of essays, My Body, was released on Tuesday — reflected on the uncomfortable moment when Robin, 44, drunkenly put his hands on her bare breasts during the shoot, admitting on a new episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast that she'd pushed the memory from her mind for many years. But though she chose to include it in the second chapter of her book, Emily said she had no intention of encouraging fans to cancel Robin, and she is sure he has plenty of good qualities. 'I don't believe in canceling someone,' she said. 'I'm sure that Robin Thicke has a lot of wonderful things about him. I don't believe in good guys and bad guys.

    Getty Jaylen Brown entering his shooting motion for the Boston Celtics Improvement has been the buzzword for Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum over the last 18 months, with the future of the Boston Celtics franchise firmly placed upon their shoulders. “When you are the guys, every night is a greater burden with greater responsibility,” Brad Stevens explained in a recent exclusive with Michael Holley. We’ve heard both Tatum and Brown speak of their need to continue developing on numerous occasions these past 18 months, but after head coach, Ime Udoka called Jaylen Brown’s inconsistent mentality “mind-boggling” the sixth-year wing has become one of Boston’s most consistent scorers. “I can do a lot of things better, try to find ways to get guys going, talking to Jayson trying to find ways to get him going. Just making out teammates better; I think that’s part of being a leader and things like that. I still have a lot of growth to do, that I’m actively working on, but that’s my challenge,” Brown explained when discussing his development following the Celtics...
    President Joe Biden was questioned Tuesday on inflation concerns leading into this Thanksgiving. At the president’s press conference in Glasgow, NBC News’ Peter Alexander asked about inflation affecting gas prices, rent, and the cost of many consumer items. “When significantly should Americans expect those prices to come down?” he asked. Biden said the “significant reason why prices are up” is that the pandemic has affected the supply chain. Rising gas prices, he continued, are “a consequence of thus far the refusal of Russia or the OPEC nations to pump more oil. And we’ll see what happens on that score sooner than later.” The president brought up price concerns Americans have heading into the Thanksgiving season. Overall, Biden said, since last Thanksgiving “things are a hell of a lot better, and the wages have gone up higher, faster than inflation, and we have generated real economic growth.” It doesn’t mean these dislocations aren’t real. They do affect people’s lives. For example, one of the reasons why I decided to talk about the need to deal with the operation and the gouging...

    Fire crews battling the massive Caldor wildfire in California and Nevada had a "monumental day" Friday when better weather allowed for substantial progress to be made in containing the blaze, officials said Saturday morning. Hundreds of evacuees have now returned to their homes as evacuation orders in certain affected areas have recently been decreased to warnings.  "The incident continues to look better and better every day," West Zone Operational Chief Tim Ernst said at a community briefing Saturday. "We talked about yesterday being cautiously optimistic and we continue in that mode." In the past 24 hours, the Caldor Fire grew by only 800 acres — the smallest daily increase since the blaze ignited on August 14, U.S. Forest Service administrator Dean Gould said Saturday. "That's pretty impressive," he added.  Lighter winds and higher humidity levels throughout the week have allowed crews to increase containment of the 214,107 acre fire to 37%, managing to largely gain control of its western border. Incident meteorologist Jim Dudley said similar conditions were expected Saturday.  Evacuation orders have been reduced to warnings in areas...

    Donald Trump explaining his 'very fine people' statement during Charlottesville protests Back in 2017, the inventor of Godwin’s Law made it clear that comparing someone to a Nazi, when they are literally praising the Nazis, was completely fair. That came during the sequence of events at Charlottesville, where a violent white supremacists marched to Nazi slogans and one deliberately killed peaceful protester Heather Heyer by driving over her with a car. Trump responded by a statement that there were “very fine people” on both sides of the events, then he doubled-down on that statement with with a claim that he was only supporting the Nazis in their praise for a Confederate traitor.  In 2018, Trump explicitly declared “I’m a nationalist,” in a speech ostensibly supporting Ted Cruz. “You know, they have a word,” said Trump. “It sort of became old-fashioned. It’s called a nationalist. And I say really, we’re not supposed to use that word. You know what I am? I am a nationalist. Use that word.” So when The Guardian published an account on Wednesday morning that Trump defended Hitler while on a tour of military cemeteries...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The evolution of Jayson Tatum has been apparent throughout his four-year career with the Boston Celtics. Gregg Popovich has noticed it from afar, but the Spurs coach is getting a closer look at Tatum’s ascension to superstardom as the duo works together once again on Team USA. Popovich is well aware of Tatum’s offensive prowess from their NBA meetings. Tatum dropped a career-high 60 points on Pop’s Spurs back in April, part of a downright dominant run for the Celtics forward to close the 2021 season. And he has plenty to compare this current version of Tatum to, after Popovich coached him in the summer of 2019 during the FIBA World Cup.

    Donald Trump apparently sparked a history lesson from a 'stunned' John Kelly during a 2018 Europe trip when the then-president said, 'Hitler did a lot of good things,' a new book claims Kelly, then Trump's chief of staff, immediately pushed back against the comment, according to Michael Bender's upcoming book Frankly, We Did Win This Election obtained by The Guardian. 'You cannot ever say anything supportive of Adolf Hitler,' Kelly told Trump during a trip to Europe in 2018 to mark 100 years since the end of World War I, Bender wrote in excerpts published Wednesday. 'You just can't.'  Trump, however, was undeterred by Kelly's shock, instead going on to praise the Nazi leader's efforts to pull the German economy out of disarray in the 1930s after World War I. Bender wrote that Kelly told Trump that the German people would have been 'better off poor than subjected to the Nazi genocide.' The Wall Street Journal reporter said Trump denied making the comment.

As a rookie last season, Gibson rushed for 795 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games. He also caught 36 passes for 247 yards. It was Gibson’s first year working full-time out of the backfield, as he was primarily a slot receiver at Memphis.

For the first time in what feels like an eternity, the possibility of a summer quarterback battle is brewing in Foxborough.
