    President Joe Biden said on Thursday he would like to visit the Ukraine and confirmed a report his administration is having conversations about sending a senior official to war-torn Kyiv.

It's not the first time Biden has expressed his interest in making such a trip.  While visiting U.S. troops in Poland last month, Biden lamanted he couldn't cross the border into the Ukraine, saying 'they' wouldn't let him. 'They will not let me, understandably, I guess, cross the border and take a look at what’s going on in Ukraine,' he said.  White House officials have pointed to the incredible security precedures that would need to be put into place for Biden to visit to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Before Biden went to Poland, White House press secretary Jen Psaki ruled out a presidential visit to Ukraine.  President Joe Biden said on Thursday he would like to visit the Ukraine...

    A grandmother from Texas has reported a domestic 'terrorist threat' to the FBI after a father told a school board meeting last week he had 'over 1,000 soldiers ready to go'. Ladonna Meyers, a grandmother of two, filed the report with federal agents following a meeting on November 9 of the Fort Worth Independent School District board. During the meeting, local father Malikk Austin, who supports Critical race Theory (CRT), addressed anti-CRT protestors, telling them: 'For those who got an issue with this critical race theory equity, this is something I fight for, for my children.  'How dare you come out here and talk about the things that my daddy and my grandparents went through? The lynching, the oppression, Jim Crow — and my kids are still being afflicted by this.' 'We are not our ancestors,' Austin added. 'I got over 1,000 soldiers ready to go.'

    Parents in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex said they felt threatened when a man who was a member of an armed black militia told a tense board meeting he planned to have ‘over a thousand soldiers ready to go’ who were ‘locked and loaded.’ The incident took place during a board meeting held by the Fort Worth Independent School District on November 9. The meeting was devoted in part to the teaching of critical race theory, which was opposed by some of the parents. During the meeting, a man identified as Malikk Austin got up and spoke for a minute, defending the teaching of CRT, according to Fox News. School board meetings nationwide have become a flash point of controversy over the teaching of critical race theory, which critics say makes children feel guilty for being white. Supporters of CRT claim that it is vital to 'center' the experiences of black people and other minorities in educational curricula which until now has been taught predominantly through the prism of white Americans.  Austin, an African-American who was part of The Brotherhood Movement,...

    Aaron Rodgers is one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks and smartest players overall. When talking to media around the league, he’s been known for his calculated, composed manner of speaking. There’s no question Rodgers’ intelligence and personable nature have been major assets during his successful two-week run as guest host on “Jeopardy!.” Rodgers once excelled as a celebrity competitor on the show and the Packers MVP quarterback would have made the late great Alex Trebek even more proud of how the did in his new role. Like with the previous fill-in hosts, Ken Jennings, Mike Richards, Katie Couric and Dr. Mehmet Oz, Rodgers was at first nervous welcoming the contestants and delivering the clues. That would come for anyone trying to live up to the legacy of a beloved legend. But once Rodgers “R-E-L-A-X-E-D” a couple of episodes into his run, he found a cool, dry place at the lectern. He showed his good sense of humor, from being trolled by a wrong response in Final Jeopardy to everyone missing a clue about his Packers in a sports category.  He kept the show moving...

    IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Spencer Lee’s resume was almost complete last season. He went 18-0 as a junior, winning his first Big Ten individual title while leading the Hawkeyes to the conference team championship. He was Big Ten wrestler of the year, the NCAA’s Most Dominant Wrestler, winner of the Dan Hodge Trophy as the nation’s top college wrestler and co-winner of the AAU James E. Sullivan Award as the nation’s top amateur athlete. What drives Lee is what he didn’t get. Lee missed a chance at a third consecutive national individual title — and the top-ranked and undefeated Hawkeyes lost an opportunity for the national team title — when the NCAA championships were canceled because of the pandemic. Lee had also qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials, which were postponed when the Tokyo Olympics were pushed back to this summer. It’s “unfinished business,” Iowa coach Tom Brands said, and it’s motivating Lee, who received the Hodge Trophy during a ceremony at Tuesday’s media day. “As you all know, the NCAA Tournament is the pinnacle of wrestling,” said Lee,...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined a growing chorus of alarm over the prospect of President Donald Trump’s potential resistance to a peaceful transition of power if he loses to former Vice President Joe Biden in November. On Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah brought up recent stories about mail-in voting irregularities that were caught, and which benefited Republicans, and asked “Is there a part of you that is worried that Donald Trump would be able to use any of those stories to try and undermine the entire election, and say ‘You see, there’s that one and that one, I don’t think we should trust this election at all because it says that I’ve lost.'” Clinton replied “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that,” and added “But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim.” “All of...
