    According to a report from Vox, House Democrats, observing the Republican Party rancor that preceded the 15-ballot election of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to become the new House speaker, see an opportunity to maintain a certain amount of control of the chamber. That led one senior Democrat to put the California Republican on notice that he will at times need their votes -- and will pay a price for them. With McCarthy leading a House with the slimmest of margins, and a caucus that is far from united behind him and itching to depose him, the GOP leader will be walking a tightrope for the next two years if he lasts that long. After handing his GOP critics a concession that would allow them to demand he vacate the chair, McCarthy will be feeling pressure from both sides. As Voxs Li Zhou wrote, "McCarthy’s agreement to weaken the role of the speaker is likely to lead to extreme gridlock within the ranks of the GOP. But it could also present an opening for Democrats. If far-right lawmakers in the GOP...

    President Joe Biden on Thursday said he expects to overcome the legal challenges to his plan for student loan debt relief - claiming checks will be sent out before mid November. The president was asked during a NewsNation interview about the scheme, which on Friday was blocked by a federal judge in St Louis, Missouri. 'We're going to win that case,' Biden said. 'I think in the next two weeks you're going to see those checks going out.' The Missouri federal court said they needed more time to rule on an emergency request by six Republican-led states to block the policy. The plan, announced in August, was designed for people who had taken out loans to pay for college. Friday's decision delays distribution of up to $20,000 in debt relief for more than 40 million eligible borrowers. About 22 million people have already applied for debt relief since the application opened on October 14.  Joe Biden on Thursday night said he expects to overcome the legal challenges to his plan for student loan relief The Biden administration had promised not to...

Whole Woman's Health is one of the nation's largest independent abortion providers, and the location of its Minnesota clinic is no accident. "Some patients may fly, some may prefer to drive.

    Former President Donald Trump hinted at a 2024 presidential run, saying, “We’re going to be doing it again,” on Saturday during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Trump highlighted the size of the crowd listening to his CPAC speech and warned his detractors that “They’re going to find out the hard way,” after the 2022 midterm election and the 2024 general elections. “And this is some crowd. We broke the record again, but they’re going to find out the hard way starting on November 8, and then again even more so on November 2024,” Trump said. “They will find out like never before we did it twice. And we’ll do it again. We’re going to be doing it again. A third time.” Trump’s remarks at CPAC are the closest he has come to announcing his 2024 candidacy officially. He told Newsmax last summer that he would make an announcement about 2024 “in the not too distant future,” and added that he might want to wait for the results of the midterm elections. Trump concluded his CPAC speech by emphasizing...

However the terms of the divorce between the Browns and Beckham are resolved, it’s becoming more and more clear he won’t be with the team. Consider Thursday’s comments from offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt, when asked if the team is designing the game plan without Beckham being part of it. “We are going to go in and plan for the guys who are going to be there at this point,” Van Pelt told reporters. “That is our focus.” Asked specifically if he expects that Beckham won’t be playing on Sunday, Van Pelt provided an answer that seemed a little vague, but that hinted strongly at the reality that Beckham won’t be there. “As of now, again, we are just...
    Dan Rather Fast Facts Achieving equity through mediocrity: Why elimination of gifted programs should worry us all © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Before the Bengals played the Packers in Week Five, tight end C.J. Uzomah said that beating Green Bay would “put the league on notice that we’re here.” The Bengals weren’t able to get that win, but they showed a lot of fight in the 25-22 overtime loss. They rallied to tie the game late in the fourth quarter and then saw kicker Evan McPherson miss a pair of field goals that could have made them victorious. While that may not have been enough to put the league on notice, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor does think that it showed that the Bengals aren’t going to be an easy opponent for any team this season. “It was a resilient group that showed through the effort, especially in overtime,” Taylor said, via the team’s website. “They played to that final down. Things just didn’t go our way. That’s life...
    On the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists successfully hijacked four California-bound planes, with the intention of crashing them into iconic buildings.  By 9.30am the World Trade Centre, one of New York City's most famous landmarks, had been hit, hundreds killed and many more trapped in the floors above. Flight 77 had been hijacked and was en route for the Pentagon; Flight 93 also had terrorists at the controls. Al-Qaeda's mission was going exactly to plan. 9.31am: Terrorist Ziad Jarrah is at the controls of Flight 93. He is out of breath after struggling with the pilots as he attempts to speak to the 33 passengers on board over the intercom, but as he is unfamiliar with the controls he inadvertently transmits his message to air traffic control instead: 'Ladies and Gentlemen.  Here the captain, please sit down keep remaining sitting. We have a bomb on board. So, sit.' But there is no bomb — his aim is to crash the plane on either the Capitol or the White House. Firefighters and emergency crews at the scene...

Despite generating an 0-3 record in the preseason with an offense that most of the time seemed downright offensive, Zimmer has high hopes for his team. “I feel like we’re going to be pretty good, but we still have to go out and prove it,” Zimmer told reporters. He nevertheless acknowledged the Friday night’s loss to the Chiefs was “sloppy,” but he noted that most of his key players still aren’t on the field. They held out plenty of key offensive and defensive players again in Kansas City. One potential starter — cornerback Bashaud Breeland — got torched for a 35-yard touchdown by Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill. Asked whether miscommunication among the safeties contributed to the play, Zimmer was characteristically blunt. “He didn’t cover the guy,” Zimmer said of Breeland. Zimmer has a well-earned reputation for speaking...
    VIDEO2:3502:35We're in this situation for a variety of reasons, none of them good: Col. Jack JacobsThe News with Shepard Smith Retired Colonel Jack Jacobs told CNBC that President Joe Biden will be unable to fulfill his promise of ending the war in Afghanistan and rescuing all Americans and U.S. allies from the country.  "The war is not over, we're not going to be able to rescue everybody, and I'm afraid that if we're not careful, if our allies aren't careful, if the Taliban's not careful, we're going to wind up with terrorists who are out of everybody's control, and are going to be threatening us and our allies again in the future," said Jacobs, an NBC News military analyst. Biden alluded to plans to develop targets among ISIS-K during his Thursday evening remarks, after a suicide bomber outside the city's airport killed at least 113 people, including 13 U.S. service members. "We will not forgive. We will not forget. We will hunt you down and make you pay," Biden said on Thursday, speaking from the White House. Jacobs told "The...

    VIDEO3:0403:04We're heading into influenza season and I'm quite worried, says Dr. Peter HotezThe News with Shepard Smith Dr. Peter Hotez warned that rapid spread of the delta coronavirus variant has forced the threshold for the amount of Americans requiring vaccination in order to achieve herd immunity much higher.  "We're now realizing with the variant that's this transmissible, that we have to get to 85%, maybe, as Tony Fauci said, 90% of the country vaccinated," said Hotez, co-director of the Center for Vaccine Development at Texas Children's Hospital. "That's not 85%, 90% of the adults, that's 85-90% of the country which means all of the adults and all of the adolescents, if we're really going to get past this, and this is why he's giving these extended time frames before we get out of Covid-19." White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted the nation could have some control over Covid by Spring 2022 if the "overwhelming majority of people who have not been vaccinated" get vaccinated.

In addition to signing Fitzpatrick this offseason, Washington also added wide receivers Curtis Samuel, Adam Humphries and Dyami Brown to the roster. They join wide receiver Terry McLaurin, tight end Logan Thomas and running back Antonio Gibson in a unit that Fitzpatrick believes is going to be a headache for opposing teams. “The biggest thing with his offense, is we’re able to spread the ball around to everybody and get everybody involved.

    Barack Obama has admitted that cancel culture can go 'overboard' as he slammed Republicans who were 'cowed into accepting' Donald Trump's false election fraud claims and accused conservative-leaning media of 'stoking the fear and resentment' of white Americans.  Obama spoke to CNN's Anderson Cooper for an AC360 Special named 'Barack Obama on Fatherhood, Leadership and Legacy', which aired Monday night.  In the fawning interview with little or no follow-up questions, the former president spoke about fatherhood, the Trump administration and the racial justice movement.  The Democrat said that, while the nation's history of slavery and racism still 'linger and continue', he believes cancel culture has its 'dangers'.   Barack Obama has admitted that cancel culture can go 'overboard' as he slammed Republicans who 'cowed into accepting' Donald Trump's false election fraud claims and accused the conservative media of 'stoking the fear and resentment' of white Americans Obama pointed to his own daughters Sasha, 19, and Malia, 22, who attended Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of the murder of George Floyd by white cop Derek Chauvin on Memorial Day 2020. ...
    It's difficult to "understand why teaching is hard," former middle school teacher Colette Coleman said, and so she expected some pushback when her op-ed "The Case For Paying All Teachers Six Figures" was published in The New York Times last week. "They may feel like, say you're an elementary school teacher, 'Oh, you're hanging out with kids all day,' and of course that's not what it is," Coleman said Thursday on CBSN. "I think maybe people need more insight into understanding what the profession actually entails." "When I was teaching it wasn't just that I was a teacher, I also felt often like, I'm a social worker, I'm a nurse — there are so many hats that you have to wear that that also adds to the taxing nature of the job," Coleman said.  In her op-ed, Coleman compares the starting salary of a teacher — under $40,000 for many — to the starting salary of an entry-level Facebook engineer: over $100,000. "Isn't shaping the minds of the future at least as important as building addictive apps?" Coleman writes....
    The Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt resurfaced Tuesday after two months out of the public eye for a friendly interview on the group's YouTube show, signaling the disgraced organization is not heeding calls to shut down. "We're in a tough business, and it can be brutal, and Lincoln Project has had a tough couple of months at times, and we're going to be in this fight," Schmidt told LPTV's "The Breakdown." "We're going to be back fully operational in our attacks on the extremist, anti-democratic movement ... We're going to be o (MSNBC) n offense and we're going to take the fight to people who deserve to have the fight taken to them." Despite calls by many, including Schmidt's fellow co-founder George Conway, to shut down after a humiliating series of reports detailing personal and financial corruption in the anti-Trump organization, The Lincoln Project has soldiered on with its brand of trolling tweets, vitriolic ads, and vicious attacks toward Republicans it deems an enemy of democracy.

    Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci discussed mask usage as local governments across the country loosen up restrictions due to improving coronavirus numbers. Fauci emphasized the importance of wearing masks at this time, but said the length of mask wearing should not be “measured in years.” However, he advised that “we’ll be wearing masks for several, several months.” “There’s still going to be the important need to wear masks. I think we still need to do that,” Fauci said as he pushed for a safe and gradual reopening of the country. “When you say need for masks, you mean for quite some time — into the foreseeable future — a year, two years, three years?” host George Stephanopoulos asked. “I’m not so sure it’s measured in years, George, but I think until we get the level of virus to such a low level in the community, and I had said a projection — and it’s only a projection — that hopefully by the time we get all the people vaccinated, let’s say 70-85%...
    Results suggesting the Oxford University coronavirus vaccine doesn't stop people falling mildly unwell with the South African variant are not a 'reason for alarm', the lead scientist behind trials of the jab said today. Professor Andrew Pollard, director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, claimed evidence from Oxford's own human trials in South Africa strongly indicated the vaccine still prevents serious illness and death against the new strain.  He told the BBC Radio 4 Today programme: 'As long as we have enough immunity to prevent severe disease, hospitalisations and death, then we're going to be fine in the future in the pandemic.'   A small study in Johannesburg on Sunday showed Oxford/AstraZeneca's jab may not stop many people from falling unwell. The finding caused widespread panic because it suggests vaccinated people can still pick up and transmit the disease.  But Professor Pollard urged people not to lose sight of the main goal of the vaccines, which is to bring hospital admissions and fatality rates down to manageable levels so that draconian lockdowns can be eased. He said new variants could become a staple in the...
    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, expressed support for the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, telling "Fox News Sunday" that it was necessary to achieve justice. Romney, who voted to convict Trump at his first impeachment, cited Trump's effort to convince Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the state's election result, as well as his election-related rhetoric prior to the violent riot at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6. TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL DELAYED UNTIL WEEK OF FEB. 8, SCHUMER SAYS "Well, we're certainly going to have a trial. I wish that weren't necessary, but the president's conduct with regards to the call to Secretary of State Raffensperger in Georgia as well as the incitation towards the insurrection that led to the attack on the Capitol call for a trial," Romney said. "And you know if we're going to have unity in our country I think it's important to recognize the need for accountability, for truth and justice." Romney said that the House's article of impeachment "suggests impeachable conduct," but he acknowledged that he and his fellow senators...

    Doctors fear California is on track to become like former COVID-19 epicenter New York as the state braces for a grim Christmas with hospitalizations surging to five times what they were just two months ago.  There are currently 16,843 patients being treated across the state for COVID-19 and 3,614 of them are in ICU, the latest data from the state's health department shows.  Just two months ago, there were a total of 2,291 patients, including 657 in ICU.

    There is a growing sense of dread in hospitals across Los Angeles County and the rest of California that the already grim conditions are about to get much worse and that the coming holidays could bring yet another surge of COVID-19 patients. There were 16,843 COVID-19 patients in California hospitals Saturday, and 3,614 of them were in intensive care units, according to data released Sunday by the state — a huge increase from two months ago, when there were 2,291 patients and 657 in ICUs. On Saturday, Los Angeles County hospitals were treating the largest share of patients: 5,709, with 1,175 in ICUs. Availability of ICU beds in Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley remained at zero Sunday. A doctor at an L.A. County public hospital said the number of COVID-19 patients is “increasing exponentially, without an end in sight.” Many parts of that hospital are being converted to COVID-19 wards, and ICU teams are being staffed up with workers from other departments that are temporarily halting services. The doctor, who was not authorized to speak to the media...

    (CNN)In the lead-up to Election Day, CNN Opinion asked our contributors what they would be most closely watching as the election returns begin to roll in Tuesday night. Senior political analyst John Avlon: I'm going to be looking at how historic early voting levels upend campaign calculations: For example, what is the impact of a 600% increase in youth early voting in Texas? I'll also be looking closely at the more than 200 pivot counties that voted twice for Barack Obama-Joe Biden and once for Donald Trump -- do they flip back? Finally, my personal perennial obsession: How do independent voters break this time, and do they tip the scales in key battleground states? Republican commentator Tara Setmayer: Given the dramatic demographic changes in states like Arizona, Texas and Georgia, and the collapse of support for Trump with suburban women, I'll be paying close attention to results in Maricopa County, Arizona; the suburban counties in Texas; and Cobb and Gwinnett counties in Georgia, all traditionally red areas until now. Arizona has gone Republican for president every year since 1952,...
    If you're having an existential crisis, it might be time for some Existential Slices. We're going to spare you any further rhyming couplets and just get to the facts: Existential Slices is a new walk-up pizza window that has taken over half of the Mr. Lucky's Fine Sandwiches at 711 East Sixth Avenue. The idea, according to the pizzeria's Instagram account, was "born out of the dumpster fire that is 2020." Galen Juracek, owner of Mr. Lucky's, converted the dining room of his sandwich shop into Existential Slices as a way to get extra use out of the space while serving as the food component for nextdoor neighbor Don's Club Tavern, owned by the Little Pub Company. "After a few months of the dining room just sitting there empty, we determined it was serving no purpose," Juracek explains. "But we need to survive and Little Pub Company needs to stay open, so we function as their kitchen. Necessity is the mother of invention, right?"Related Stories Hops & Pie's Nightly Specials Beat Standard Happy Hours New Ghost Kitchen Snacktacular Does...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a dramatic announcement during her weekly press conference Thursday by telling reporters that she intends to discuss a constitutional measure to remove President Trump from office, following questions regarding Trump's health as he recovers from coronavirus.

Pelosi made the announcement during a press conference Thursday morning about the health of the president and possibly pushing through a stimulus bill to offset the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

    Mary Elizabeth Williams August 3, 2020 7:00PM (UTC) Comedians may be the one group that can reliably incite the ire of conservatives and liberals, triggering snowflakes of every conceivable stripe. As veteran comic Judy Gold points out in her self-explanatorily titled new book "Yes I Can Say That: And F**k U If U Can't Take a Joke," performers as diverse as Dave Chappelle, Michelle Wolfe and Kathy Griffin have become targets of outrage and boycotts from very different audiences but essentially for the same reason — saying things that make people uncomfortable. Which is pretty much the job description.  Salon recently talked to Gold — who is safely doing her comedy outdoors this summer in Provincetown — about parenting, her new book, and why in serious times we have to take ourselves less seriously. The following conversation has been lightly edited for lengthy and clarity. : You tell jokes that are designed to provoke, but then everyone is offended all the time.
