    (CNN)The White House plans to allow the nomination process to play out for President Joe Biden's pick to be the next administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, Phil Washington, after his name emerged in a recent search warrant issued as part of a political corruption investigation in Los Angeles. The warrant -- issued earlier this month on multiple locations, including the home of Los Angeles County Supervisor for District 3 Sheila Kuehl -- sought more information related to potential favoritism in the awarding of contracts by the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority. The contracts were sole-sourced to a nonprofit run by a friend of Kuehl.The nonprofit, called Peace Over Violence, set up a sexual harassment hotline in tandem with the transit authority. A copy of the warrant posted to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department website shows that the department is seeking correspondence from several people, including Washington.Washington served as CEO of the transit authority for six years and whistleblower allegations laid out in the warrant accuse him of pushing forward sole-sourcing the contract to the nonprofit "to remain 'in...
    Fox News chief political anchor Bret Baier sounded the alarm for Republicans on Tuesday, warning the party that they are “going down the wrong road” electorally after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) proposed a nationwide abortion ban. Despite recent polls and special-election results suggesting the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade has energized Democratic voters ahead of the midterms, Graham decided to introduce legislation on Tuesday federally outlawing abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Additionally, Graham opened himself and the GOP to accusations of hypocrisy as he previously claimed he believed abortion was an issue that should be left to individual states. To be fair, a number of Republicans have already tried to distance themselves from the bill. Appearing on Fox News mid-afternoon program America Reports, Baier and co-anchor John Roberts first suggested that recent polls possibly overstate Democrats’ current strength in congressional races. “Democrats are polling well in exactly the places where the surveys missed the most in 2020,” Roberts noted, referencing a recent New York Times analysis of a possible “blue mirage” in polling. “He is...

    VIDEO1:5701:57Powell doesn't understand what the causes of inflation are and were: ProfessorStreet Signs Asia The U.S. economy is going to fall into a recession next year, according to Steve Hanke, a professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University, and that's not necessarily because of higher interest rates. "We will have a recession because we've had five months of zero M2 growth, money supply growth, and the Fed isn't even looking at it," he told CNBC's "Street Signs Asia" on Monday. Market watchers use the broad M2 measure as an indicator of total money supply and future inflation. M2 includes cash, checking and savings deposits and money market securities. In recent months, money supply has stagnated and that's likely to lead to an economic slowdown, Hanke warned. "We're going to have one whopper of a recession in 2023," he said. Meanwhile, inflation is going to remain high because of "unprecedented growth" in money supply in the United States, Hanke said. Historically, there has never been "sustained inflation" that isn't the result of excess growth in money supply, and pointed out...

    NASA has revealed 13 candidate regions on the moon that are potential landing targets for the first woman and person of color of the 2025 Artemis III mission, which will be the first time Americans have been to the lunar surface in 50 years and the first time humans will touch down on the dark side of the moon, the South Pole region. These regions were chosen because they provide continuous access to sunlight throughout the week-long mission, while also featuring diverse landscapes of large mountain summits to the rims of large craters.  Not only is this NASA’s epic return to the moon, the Artemis III is deemed the first phase of landing the first humans on Mars, as once it is completed the agency will move forward with plans for its orbital outpost, the Lunar Gateway. This massive craft will be home to four astronauts who will test technologies, such as rovers and reusable habitats, set to be used by those brave enough to step foot on the Red Planet. All of these, according to NASA, are important for...

    In this article AAPLMetaApple and Facebook parent Meta are expected to release mixed reality headsets in the coming year that could finally fulfill the industry's promise to turn head-worn devices into the next big shift in personal computing. But there's one major potential snag: sticker shock. The best-selling virtual reality headset, the Meta Quest 2, retails for $400 and accounted for 78% of the nascent VR market in 2021, according to IDC. Consumers who want the next-generation technology are going to have to spend multiples of that. Meta's forthcoming high-end headset, codenamed Cambria, is expected to cost at least $800, the company said earlier this year. Apple's unannounced device could reportedly cost thousands of dollars. That's a hefty load for products in a category that's yet to go mainstream. Just 11.2 million VR units were shipped last year, IDC said. Apple sells that many iPhones every few weeks. To expand the market, Meta and Apple will have to convince consumers that more advanced systems will be worth the investment. Both companies are reportedly betting on a new technology called passthrough...

    (CNN)President Joe Biden said Monday he was concerned about China's recent military exercises around Taiwan but that he didn't believe China would take additional action as it escalates tensions following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit. China has spent several days conducting military drills that have essentially encircled Taiwan and restricted access to civilian ships and aircraft in the area. The extensive exercises mark a significant escalation by China after Pelosi's trip to Taipei to show support for democracy on the island, which prompted outrage from Beijing. China views Taiwan as its territory despite never having controlled it. We are not scared: Taiwans foreign minister says island will stand up to more serious China threats"I'm not worried, but I'm concerned that they're moving as much as they are.

In addition to the drills, Beijing has canceled...

On Wednesday, August 3, DeSantis addressed the mounting concerns during a press conference as he insisted the media and politicians are using the outbreak to stoke fears. “I am so sick of politicians, and we saw this with COVID, trying to sow fear into the population,” the Republican governor said. “We had people calling, mothers worried about whether their kids could catch it at schools.” READ MORE: Ron DeSantis signs bill criminalizing peaceful protests in residential neighborhoods “We are not doing fear,” he added. “And we are not going to go out and try to rile people up and try to act like people can’t live their lives as they’ve been normally doing because of something.” The Republican governor went on to share his opinion of states' emergency declarations. “You see some of these states declaring states of emergency.

    Donald Trump wants to replace the myth of a “deep state” cabal that answers to no one with the reality of a government controlled by a legion of hand-picked loyalists who answer only to him. The plan, long apparent to those working closely with Trump, has been detailed in an Axios series by reporter Jonathan Swan as a sweeping government overhaul that could push as many as 50,000 career officials out of their jobs and move the country a giant step closer to dictatorship. During his presidency, Trump was regularly frustrated by the fact that government officials—appointees as well as career officials in the civil service, the military, the intelligence community and the foreign service—were an impediment to the autocratic impulses about which he often openly fantasized. (Remember the time he said he wished his staff would “cower” like North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s? He wasn’t kidding.) Trump would rail about the “deep state,” promoting the idea that has circulated on the hard right for years of a permanent government that was accountable to no one. It reached...
    Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-NY) took a shot at Fox News host Tucker Carlson during a committee hearing on gun violence legislation on Wednesday. Jones reiterated his call for the Senate to end the filibuster in order to pass expansive gun control legislation during a House Judiciary Committee meeting regarding a pair of bills. While the Democrats control the 50-50 Senate by virtue of the vice president’s tie-breaking vote, 60 votes are required to advance most pieces of legislation. Democrats could abolish the filibuster with a simple majority vote, but Democrats Sens. Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) have said they will not support such a move. Jones called for eliminating the filibuster last month, which prompted Carlson to lash out against him on his show. “Mondaire Jones wants power,” Carlson said. “They all do and to that end, he wants to end the filibuster, destroy the entire judiciary to ‘end gun violence.'” The comments did not go unnoticed by the congressman, who referenced them on Wednesday and took a shot at Carlson’s “stupid show.” Jones: The last time...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asserted that she was not going to negotiate a more narrow abortion rights bill that could potentially get through the Senate, asked why she was pushing through a second vote on a bill that pro-choice Senate moderates have already said is too broad.  'We're not going to negotiate on a woman's right to choose. Senators Murkowski and Senator Collins may have their view, but it is not one about a woman having the right to decide. So we're not negotiating that, no,' Pelosi said in her weekly briefing Thursday.  On Friday the House is set to take its second vote on the Women's Health Protection Act after passing the measure in February. The bill failed the Senate in May.  The 2021 version of the Women's Health Protection Act (WHPA), led by California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu, failed in a procedural vote 51-49.  The bill would have needed 60 votes, 10 from Republicans, to pass, but failed to garner even a simple majority as Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., voted against it, as did pro-choice Republican Sens. Lisa...

In Indiana it’s a crime to intentionally not report. "This is a child, and there’s a strong public interest in understanding if someone under the age of 16 or under the age of 18 or really any woman is having an abortion in our state," he added. "And then if a child is being sexually abused, of course parents need to know, authorities need to know, public policy experts need to know.

    Rep. Liz Cheney on Wednesday renewed her public call for former White House counsel Pat Cipollone to testify before the January 6 committee in the wake of explosive testimony from former senior Trump administration aide Cassidy Hutchinson. Cipollone warned her that the administration would be 'charged with every crime imaginable' if officials went along with Donald Trump's alleged plan to overturn the election on January 6. Cheney, the committee's vice chair, argued that Hutchinson's testimony and other accounts of Cipollone showing concern about the plot are compelling enough reason for him to testify.  'As we heard yesterday, WH counsel Pat Cippollone (sp) had significant concerns re. Trump’s Jan 6 activities,' the Wyoming Republican lawmaker wrote on Twitter. 'It’s time for Mr. Cippollone (sp) to testify on the record.' She added that 'any concerns he has about the institutional interests of his prior office are outweighed by the need for his testimony.'

    Cassidy Hutchinson, the former assistant to Mark Meadows, testified on Tuesday that Donald Trump's White House chief of staff told her that 'things could get real, real bad on January 6' just four days before the Capitol riot. The ex-White House staffer was revealed to be the January 6 committee's surprise witness late on Monday night for the hastily-announced hearing. She told lawmakers in her first public testimony of the investigation that Trump's former lawyer Rudy Giuliani told her January 6 would be a 'great day' as she escorted him out of a White House meeting earlier that month. 'He looked at me and said something to the effect of, "Cass are you excited? The 6th is going to be a great day",' Hutchinson recalled. When she asked Giuliani what he meant, Hutchinson said he replied: 'We’re going to the Capitol. It’s going to be great. The president’s going to be there, he’s going to look powerful.'

    Furious Chicago residents are demanding action after a five-month-old baby became the latest homicide victim during a crime-filled weekend in the Windy City. The baby, Cecilia Thomas, was traveling in a car with her father when she was shot in the head in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood Friday night. Police say Thomas was killed after an unidentified woman who opened fire on the family's car in a drive-by shooting. The baby was taken to a nearby hospital, where she later died from her injuries. A 41-year-old man, traveling in a separate car, was also struck in the incident and suffered a gunshot wound to the eye. He was said to be in stable condition. The shooter fled the scene and police have no suspects in custody at this time. Community activist Ja'Mal Green, who is running for mayor, is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the conviction of Thomas' killer. Meanwhile, outraged residents are calling on lawmakers to take action after at least 20 people were shot in the crime-ridden city over the weekend.  CBS News named Chicago, which...

Jackson Women’s Health Organization, No. 19-1392 in the Supreme Court of the United States, establishes that the Constitution doesn’t include a right to abortion, therefore returning the issue of abortion laws and regulations to state legislatures. The Academy Award-winning actor asserted as much in an earlier tweet. “The Court’s decision today was about neither a woman’s “right to choose” nor the sanctity of pre-natal life,” Woods said on Friday. “It was about undoing previous...
    As news of the Supreme Court’s decision to end constitutional protections for abortion spread Friday morning, many in Southern California responded with a simple question: Where do we protest? The overturning of the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision will not hinder reproductive health access in California, where abortion will continue to be protected under state law. But the landscape on the ground will look painfully different in other parts of the country. Twenty-six states will ban all, or nearly all, abortions now that Roe has been overturned, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that supports reproductive health and abortion rights. California What happens in California with Roe vs. Wade now dead? States will now be permitted to ban abortions for the first time since the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision in 1973. What does this mean in California? The first Los Angeles crowds began to gather around noon outside a federal courthouse downtown . Standing with the growing crowd, Francisca Romero, a 25-year-old actress originally from Uruguay, described the Supreme Court decision as a tipping...

    Then-candidate Joe Biden said in 2019 that he would “end” the fossil fuel industry in the United States. “I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels,” he said in New Castle, New Hampshire. Biden said something similar in 2020 on the Democrat primary debate stage. Biden promised to wage war on the American oil industry by terminating subsidies and drilling feasibility. “No more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry,” Biden said. “No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period,” Biden said of his energy policies if he won the presidency. “It ends.” Joe Biden in 2020: "No more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry.

    A Russian priest now faces up to 10 years behind bars for declaring that troops waging war on Ukraine are going to hell. The charges against Johann Kurmoyarov, a former priestmonk of the Russian Orthodox Church and doctor of theology, come as the Kremlin seeks to stifle dissent over the war, with numerous high-profile musicians and writers recently charged under a new law against spreading “false information” about the Russian military. Kuromaryov has been charged under the same law, according to the independent news outlet Baza, which reported that he was detained in St. Petersburg on Tuesday as investigators conducted a raid in which they inexplicably confiscated some of his religious items. Mediazona confirmed his arrest, citing the press service of the regional courts. The charges against him stem from a video he posted on social media in March responding to Russian propagandist Vladimir Solovyev’s claim that even if the war in Ukraine leads to a nuclear strike, Russians will “go to heaven.” “I would like to disappoint everyone who believes in this ‘fake,’” Kuromaryov...
    New York (CNN Business)Canceled flights, surging airfares, a rental car shortage and rising hotel prices. Welcome to the summer of travel hell.Airlines had said they were prepared to avoid the service problems that plagued much of the industry last year. But between Friday and Monday, US airlines canceled 2,653 flights, or nearly 3% of their collective schedules, according to tracking service FlightAware. That's more than they had canceled for the same holiday weekend the previous three years combined. In 2019, the year before the pandemic, US airlines canceled just 1.2% of their scheduled flights, despite having 6,600 more flights on the schedule.Experts said passengers are right to be nervous that they'll see more of the same for the rest of the summer."This does not bode well for the summer travel season as we expect a repeat through the summer months as more people fly," Helane Becker, airline analyst with Cowen, said in a note to clients Tuesday.

    They stuck it out during the political protests of 2019. Then they lasted through nearly two years of pandemic. But this year, they say they've had enough. Residents of Hong Kong are leaving the city in droves in 2022 — not because they want to, several told CNBC, but because Covid restrictions and what they see as an erosion of democratic norms are pushing them to leave. A surge in departures is accelerating a "brain drain" of professional talent — a situation which hit fever pitch around March, as omicron-driven Covid cases skyrocketed across the city. Now Hong Kong's ever-chipper lifestyle websites, once dominated by articles about the city's best dim sum and foot massages parlors, are focusing on moving to-do lists and farewell gift guides.'Absolute mass exodus'The office of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but Lam said on April 26 that the government's Covid rules balance health and economic interests with public tolerance levels.

    Co-host Joy Behar interrupted Goldberg's rant and said that Americans need to stop voting for Republicans altogether. But Goldberg actually pushed back, saying Americans should not stop voting for the GOP, but that they need to elect "better Republicans." So what is a "better Republican"? According to Goldberg, they are politicians who support outlawing AR-15 rifles. "Get people who are going to look and say, 'OK, we don’t have to have AR-15s, but I want to keep my shotgun because I still hunt. OK. You can have your shotgun, but you can’t have your AR-15. If you are going to get all in my business and tell me what my family can and cannot do, neither can you," she said. "They’re going to come for those AR-15s and you better get ready to give them up because this is America," she warned. "We were supposed to be able to do things and be the people we wanted to be, and now we are in a crazy place." After invoking the Sandy Hook tragedy, Goldberg declared that it is time...

    Rebekah Vardy has denied that she is set to flee the UK to make home in the US with her footballer husband Jamie Vardy after the catastrophic Wagatha Christie libel trial.  After a week of the Wags taking the witness box at London's High Court, it has been reported that the couple are planning to move across the pond regardless of how the trial ends. A source told The Sun that Vardy is 'keen' to get out of the UK 'as fast as possible' after the fallout of her 'disaster' of a libel trial. But a spokesman for Rebekah Vardy told MailOnline: ‘The story in The Sun newspaper claiming the Vardy family are planning to move to the United States is categorically untrue.’  Vardy and Coleen Rooney have been battling it out in the High Court this week after Coleen publicly accused Rebekah of leaking stories about her to the Sun newspaper after carrying out a social media sting.

    A Second Cold War now seems inevitable. Just as inevitable appears to be a substantial surge in defense spending. But is this really the right response? The war in Ukraine has revealed that we significantly overestimated the threat posed by Russia. It’s also shown the effectiveness of cheaper, more nimble new technologies against more expensive traditional weapons systems—from tanks to manned aircraft to major navy vessels. The Biden administration’s proposed defense budget of $813 billion is the largest such spending request since World War II. What is more, there is every sign that before the budget is approved, it is likely to grow larger. (And the above number does not include the aid packages being approved for Ukraine, the latest of which totals over $40 billion.) Already, senior Biden defense officials, such as Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, have indicated a willingness to up the number to compensate for the additional costs associated with inflation. And there is pressure from both parties for additional increases. Driving the spending is the sense that however the war in Ukraine progresses,...
    COVID cases are going up in many countries as dangerous new subvariants evolve faster and faster. At the same time, individual testing is going down. That might seem like a dangerous combination. If authorities can’t accurately keep tabs on where and how fast the virus is spread, they might not be able to help protect vulnerable communities. Fortunately, there’s one way to track SARS-CoV-2 without relying on drive-through testing sites or testing at pharmacies, clinics or hospitals. More and more, scientists are looking for the virus in sewer water. In our toilet flushes, in other words. “Wastewater seems to be the key to early detection, especially in the context of increased at-home testing and potentially reduced reporting,” Niema Moshiri, a geneticist at the University of California, San Diego, told The Daily Beast. But there’s a big problem with this wastewater surveillance. Any method of monitoring a global pandemic itself needs to be global. While North America, Europe, Australia and parts of Asia have pretty good wastewater surveillance systems in place, China—the country that’s arguably the most vulnerable to COVID right...
    Cristobal Reyes | Orlando Sentinel ORLANDO, Fla. — In a speech in Orlando on Saturday, U.S. Senate hopeful Val Demings touted her pro-choice stance and attacked Republican Sen. Marco Rubio’s position on abortion as “radical.” Rubio, who’s seeking a third term, has long supported bans on abortion with no exceptions, most recently saying a failed Senate bill to codify Roe v. Wade would legalize ”the killing of unborn children right up to the day of delivery.” The 1973 Supreme Court ruling is on the cusp of being overturned, according to a draft opinion obtained by Politico. His campaign described his likely opponent in November as “a radical who supports abortion up until the moment of birth,” in what is likely to become a wedge issue in the race, Florida Politics reported. Demings called the claim “foolishness,” voicing her support for abortions “up until the point of viability or when it threatens the health of the mother.” She also pointed to Rubio’s past support for a 2001 “scarlet letter” law signed and later deemed unconstitutional, which required unwed mothers in Florida...
