    New York's 14th Congressional District has an estimated population of 696,664, based on the 2019 American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The total population of West Virginia was 1,793,716, the 2020 census found, according to bureau. Manchin, who as a senator represents the entire state of West Virginia, earned more than 290,000 votes during his 2018 re-election bid, while Ocasio-Cortez earned more than 152,000 votes when she won her 2020 re-election contest. "God forbid, that, that they might actually have to show up and stand or, or sit and actually have to talk and actually live out the threat of their filibuster. I mean, it is, it is unconscionable, the way that the Senate operates. It's fundamentally undemocratic," Ocasio-Cortez said during the interview on MSNBC. The progressive congresswoman said "what we really need to do is crackdown on the Senate" and "implement some institutional discipline." She said that lawmakers who "want to threaten dysfunction" should have to make their stand inperson and engage in a "talking filibuster," though she said "that is the compromise because...
    Barry Morphew marched into court in Colorado on Tuesday with both of his adult daughters by his side to ask the judge presiding over his murder trial to step down, claiming he is biased because he has a relationship with the law firm representing his girlfriend.  Morphew is accused of murdering his wife Suzanne in May 2020. Her body has never been found, but police say she is most likely dead because she has not been heard from since then.  He denies the charges, and is being supported by the couple's two adult daughters, who walked with him into court on Tuesday.  At the time of her disappearance, both Morphew and his wife were having extra-marital affairs; his is believed to have been with Shoshana Darke, and Suzanne had rekindled a relationship with Jeff Libler, who she went to high school with.  Darke was previously arrested for trespassing on the Morphews' home and stealing a package from their front porch.   Barry Morphew arrives in court in Colorado on Tuesday with his two adult daughters, Mallory and Macy, who are still supporting...
    Fox Nation host Lara Logan Went There during an appearance on Fox News’s Prime Time on Monday night and compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to Nazi doctor Josef Mengele. Or at least, that’s what people are telling her, so she says. Logan said the coverage of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 has been overhyped and claimed that death rates are “comparable” to those of seasonal flu. She then said that “people all across the world” are saying the nation’s leading infectious disease expert is reminiscent of Mengele, who performed horrific and fatal experiments on concentration camp prisoners during the Holocaust. The Omicron variant has been most abundantly documented in southern Africa. There have been no deaths linked to it so far, but not much is known about the variant and experts have urged caution. That includes Fauci, who suggested it’s possible Omicron may “evade” certain vaccine antibodies. “What’s your take on where we are and where we’re going?” asked guest host Pete Hegseth. “You just have to look at Africa,” Logan said. “They didn’t have the death rates from Covid that were predicted,”...
    Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Tuesday President Biden's statement reassuring Americans that there would be ample food to buy this Thanksgiving represents just how "ridiculous" the country has become under his leadership. Biden earlier Tuesday addressed the surging inflation, telling families that they can "rest easy" knowing that "grocery stores are well-stocked with turkey and everything else you need for Thanksgiving." The president said he has been in contact with major retailers who confirmed "that their shelves will be well-stocked in stores this holiday season." WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 21: Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) speaks at a news conference on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to reject two of Leader McCarthy’s selected members from serving on the committee investigating the January 6th riots  on July 21, 2021 in Washington, DC.

    For a long time we have heard the derogatory phrase of: “A Triple-A team in the Major Leagues”, as a reference to the poor performance of teams, which may well be caused by managerial strategies, which end up carrying the performance of an organization year after year from the ridiculous to the clown. What happens to Baltimore Orioles It is incredibly abominable, a team that looks lost from a so-called “reconstruction” that has been seen by its management as more than a strategy towards the future, a strategy that defines the team year after year, without even seeing the slightest step of evolution. On it. The Orioles have not had the joy of participating in the postseason of the MLB since a last year in 2016, after that the breakdown is self-sufficient. Speaking of an organization that represents a clear fifth place among one of the most competitive divisions year by year in the League without first starting the campaign. The definition of the rival towards these is clearly: A victory without much effort. After 2016, from 2017 to...
    The Sussexes have renewed their campaign against the British media after backing a fierce attack on the industry body that represents newspaper editors. Archewell, the couple’s campaign and media organisation, has thrown its support behind a group of journalists who accused the Society of Editors of a ‘ham-fisted blanket denial of racism’. The move could reignite the row sparked during the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, when Prince Harry claimed the UK tabloid media was ‘bigoted’ and created a ‘toxic environment’ of ‘control and fear’.  ITV, which bought the UK rights to the interview, was later forced to edit out some misleading and distorted headlines which portrayed British press coverage of the couple as racist. Archewell, the couple’s campaign and media organisation, has thrown its support behind a group of journalists who accused the Society of Editors of a ‘ham-fisted blanket denial of racism’ Society of Editors executive director Ian Murray said the couple’s accusations were ‘not acceptable’ and the UK media ‘has a proud record of calling out racism’.  However, his comments prompted a backlash that led...
    Sandra Barneda at the final bonfire of ‘The Island of Temptations’. (Photo: TELECINCO) The bonfires have come to an end in the third season of The island of temptations and Sandra Barneda has been crowned as one of the great protagonists of the moment. As soon as Hugo arrived, Barneda’s smile escaped (or not). And it’s not the first time. The presenter has not hidden throughout the season the gestures that reveal that the Galician is positioned very high in the ranking of your favorites. Neither Hugo nor Lara wanted to have the final date, everything indicated that this reunion was going to make the spectators tear their tears. Lara came to the fire wanting to vent, but Hugo has made it difficult for her. After initial criticism, he has assured her that he wants to marry her. “You have to prove it to me, it is useless if then I get out of here and my life is the same,” he replied. No sooner said than done. After viewing the images that the presenter has shown her, Lara has...
    Miami : The Secretary of State of the United States, Antony Blinken, affirmed this Wednesday that the North American country is prepared to face China when necessary, qualifying the Asian power as the “greatest geopolitical challenge” of the century. In his first major speech, Blinken promised that President Joe Biden’s administration will emphasize diplomacy over military action and establish cooperation with the world around global challenges such as climate change and COVID-19. “We will manage the greatest geopolitical test of the 21st century: our relationship with China”said Blinken at the State Department. The official also defend the rights of Hong Kong and the Uighur ethnic group, stating that if not, “China will act with even greater impunity.” Beijing has advanced strongly on the autonomy of the former British colony, especially after passing a controversial national security law last year, and systematically violates the human rights of the Muslim minority – to a greater extent through his internment in concentration camps and forced labor – which has earned him the condemnation of numerous members of the international community. “China is...
    The new prime minister chosen by President Tshisekedi represents a new generation of leaders. This choice reinforces the new majority of “Sacred Union” desired by the Head of State. Portrait Un young man (43 years old), originally from Likasi in Katanga, Congolese Prime Minister Jean-Michel Sama Lukonde Kyenge, whom the press calls “Sam” Lukonde, represents the rising generation. His appointment to replace Ilunga Ilunkamba, a veteran of politics, has been rather well received by Congolese opinion. Indeed, this engineer by training, who had just been appointed to the post of general manager at Gécamines in the hope that he would counterbalance the very powerful Albert Yuma, “ticks several boxes” of the political spectrum and he has ‘a network of personal relationships within several parties.
    The speed at which the ice is disappearing all over the planet is speeding up, according to pioneering research from the University of Leeds (UK) that has used satellite data. The findings also reveal that Earthhas lost 28 trillion tons of ice between 1994 and 2017, which is equivalent to a 100 meter thick ice sheet covering the entire UK. A 10 kilometer wide cube capable of overshadowing New York City, it represents the 1.2 trillion tons of ice that the planet loses every year. The study has further found that ice loss rate of our planet has increased markedly in the last three decades, from 0.8 trillion tons per year in the 1990s to 1.3 trillion tons per year in 2017. The thaw around the world raises sea level, increases the flood risk in coastal communities and threatens destroy natural habitats on which wildlife depends. The findings of the research team, which includes the University of Edinburgh, University College London and data science specialists Earthwave, are published in the journal The Cryosphere of the European Union of...
    BlazeTV host Steve Deace is fired up about what he calls a "fake election." He joined the Glenn Beck Radio Program Wednesday, to explain why he believes a stolen election could bring our nation to Civil War and how we might be watching the beginning stages of a political coup. "What's happening here, is the same people that brought you fake news, fake Russian collusion, fake rape allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, fake Ukrainian collusion, fake ... doomsday models, and fake polls, have now brought you a fake election. This isn't about numbers and it's not about specifics. This is the third and final stage of a plan. This is a coup. That's what's going on here," Steve argued. Steve explained what he called the "three phases of this election" and how we're now in the midst of phase three: "blue state chicanery." He also blasted Republican leadership, saying they "want to be rid of" President Donald Trump and his base, as well as the media's dishonest election coverage. "There are nefarious forces at work in this...
    A new lawsuit claims that early last year, a Denver-area nursing home evicted ailing resident Donna Clifford for nonpayment, with the full knowledge that she was incapable of caring for herself without assistance, and even though the majority of her fees were covered by government aid. Nine days later, she was found covered in her own waste and in a health crisis from which she never recovered. When Clifford died a few weeks later, she looked like a woman in her eighties or nineties, but she was just 59. The suit was filed by Clifford's children, Monica Almy and Chase Clifford, against Christopher House Rehabilitation and Care in Wheat Ridge, as well as the Denver North and Denver South offices of 24/7 AvaRe Healthcare. Related Stories Survey Says Switch Hitter Dying for Dollars Attorney John Holland of Denver-based Holland, Holland Edwards & Grossman, who represents Clifford's offspring, has handled a number of groundbreaking complaints against nursing homes — including those detailed in 1998's "Dying for Dollars," 1999's "Survey Says" and 2006's "Switch Hitter," which cites the $37 million award he...
    Monday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson opened his show by examining reactions to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the high court. After determining Barrett was qualified for the role, Carlson speculated Barrett’s lifestyle conflicted with a doctrine many on the left and in the media held. That, according to Carlson, is why many are vociferously opposed to her confirmation. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Over the weekend, on Saturday, the President formally announced the impending nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Her confirmation hearings are expected to begin just a couple of weeks from now, on October 12. There’s no question that Barrett is qualified for the job. She graduated first in her class from Notre Dame Law School on a full-ride scholarship. She clerked for Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Then she left, going to a top law firm, practiced there and then rejoined her alma mater as a Law Professor. Three years ago, Barrett was confirmed by the United States Senate and became an Appellate Court Judge, which she still is....
    Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett is causing an uproar among Democrats and according to Tucker Carlson, her happy family is what’s driving them crazy. “Democrats know Amy Coney Barrett’s life refutes the lies they have pushed on the rest of us for decades, [so] they must destroy her personally,” the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host said Monday night. “Her happiness -- her family’s happiness -- is evidence that they are frauds.” Carlson surveyed Barrett’s qualifications to fill the seat once held by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, qualifications that include having clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, being confirmed by the U.S. Senate as an appellate court judge and raising seven children. Barret may be the “most impressive person” to receive this nomination, Carlson said, but she’s driving the Democrats “completely insane” because she’s happy and they’re not. JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT'S SISTER VOWS SUPREME COURT NOMINEE WILL 'NOT IMPART HER OWN BELIEFS' “Even though on some level, Democrats understand rationally it’s a very bad idea to attack a woman for her family or religious faith, they can’t help themselves,”...
    According to analysts, the complaint made by Colombian President Iván Duque about Venezuela’s intentions to buy weapons from Iran represents a clear threat to the region. “There is information from international intelligence organizations that work with us, which shows that there is an interest of the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro to acquire medium and long-range missiles through Iran,” Duque warned. These missiles, capable of shooting down planes and helicopters, have a sufficient range to have their neighbors very concerned. Retired Colonel Octavio Pérez, an expert on military and intelligence issues, believes that Venezuela’s intentions could be much darker. “The only thing that has come to light is the BUK, which is SA3, EL GOA, which is called in NATO nomenclature, which would be the replacement for these missiles that already exist in Venezuela. They have existed in Venezuela, but it may complicate things and bring something else, “said Pérez. The former US military officer highlighted the close relations between Maduro and the Iranian regime. “The Iranian Defense Minister himself is in Caracas right now and...
    Shaquille O’Neal is regarded as one of the most dominant players in the history of the NBA. Shaq was drafted in 1992 by the Orlando Magic and turned the franchise around. But it wasn’t until he wore a Lakers jersey that he displayed his true dominance. During his stint with the Lakers, he won several accolades, including a three-peat with Kobe Bryant. Although O’Neal regressed at an alarming rate after his stay with the Heat, he managed to win a championship with D-Wade as well. In his 19 years long career, Shaq’s prime was undoubtedly the 1999-00 season. He averaged a career-high 29.7 points along with 13.6 rebounds and 3 blocks. Moreover, Shaq was only one vote away from becoming the first-ever unanimous MVP that season. The best season of Shaquille O’Neal’s career in Lakers uniform The 1999-00 season was special for the Lakers in several ways. Phil Jackson took the helm as the head coach. Kobe was showing signs of becoming a superstar in the league. And most importantly Shaq tore apart the league with his dominance. Lakers...
    ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – The coronavirus pandemic has upended Orlando’s status as the most visited place in the U.S. It has not only impacted the area’s theme parks and hotels, but also the people who work in them. In 2018, more than 75 million visitors came to Orlando, mostly due to its reputation as a theme park mecca, which includes Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld Orlando. In the week that Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom started welcoming back visitors, occupancy of hotel rooms in the Orlando area was down more than 60% from the previous year, a much deeper drop than the state as a whole, which declined more than 41%, according to STR, which tracks hotel data. Less than half of Disney World’s 43,000 unionized workers have been recalled to their old jobs, contributing to two Orlando-area counties having the state’s highest unemployment rates last month — Osceola at 22.9% and Orange at 17.2%. Disney World has an overall workforce of 77,000 employees, the nation’s largest single-site labor force. Many of those still-furloughed...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) -The cancellation of this year’s State Fair of Texas will serve another big blow to local businesses and workers who depend on the annual event as a source of income. Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que has been helping feed its crowds since 1978 since its founder John Reaves became only its second minority vendor. His sons, Juan and Brent, now run the family’s restaurant and catering business. “There’s a huge economic impact, not to just our business but to the families we support, our staff here and the seasonal staff we hire annually,” said Juan. “The fair represents extra hours, overtime. It also represents bonuses when we win or do well in our competition.” The family business makes almost a third of its annual income from the State Fair, during which it employs about 100 seasonal workers. The State Fair estimates it creates about 7,000 seasonal jobs every fall. “I keep thinking about my workers,” said Abel Gonzales, who would have marked his 18th year as a food vendor at the fair. “That’s a big source of their just-to-live income.”...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Joe Tornello has displayed the Confederate Flag on his right arm for 40 years. “I was 18 years old. It was one of my first tattoos. My favorite band back then was Lynyrd Skynyrd and they unfurled the big flag on the stage every night,” said Tornello. Once an inked-up president of a motorcycle club, Tornello is now a grandfather of 13 with nieces, nephews and cousins of all different backgrounds. “If I have that talk with them, what are they going to think? That my grandfather is okay with that? And I’m not okay with that and that’s why I’m here,” said Tornello. He says the flag he once displayed unaware of its potential impact, wasn’t what it is today. “Through the years, it’s changed. And I’m not the person that represents,” said Tornello. Vinny Valenzuela, a tattoo artist at American Graffiti in Sacramento, has covered up just about every hate symbol you can imagine. “I’m not one to judge, I understand we all make mistakes when we’re young,” said Valenzuela. It’s an intricate process. Valenzuela...

    MSNBC’s Al Sharpton pushed back hard on the notion that the FBI finding in the Bubba Wallace NASCAR noose incident closes the issue, pointing out that it doesn’t answer the question of why there was a noose in the stall to begin with. In Wednesday morning’s edition of Morning Joe, co-host Willie Geist referenced the FBI report, telling Sharpton “We should take it as good news that someone didn’t place it into his stall specifically, as the only full-time black driver in NASCAR, who pushed to have those Confederate flags removed from NASCAR events, and NASCAR did take that step last week. But it does appear there was a noose, as the FBI is calling it, placed in that garage last fall.” “The FBI identified it as a noose, NASCAR said it was a noose, so went along with the FBI’s characterization. It was a noose,” Sharpton said. “So the question is, even if they did not know that Bubba Wallace was going to use that stall, why was a noose in the stall? It’s clear what a noose...
    A London court begins hearings on Monday to determine who is the legitimate representative of the Venezuelan people between current President Nicolas Maduro and opponent Juan Guaido, in a case between the central bank of Venezuela and that of England. The hearings, before a commercial court brought to rule on a political question with important diplomatic consequences, will take place by videoconference and must end on Thursday. “The question of recognition could unlock the rest”, namely the future of Venezuela’s gold reserves, defended lawyer Andrew Fulton, defender of Mr. Guaido, president of the National Assembly of Venezuela and recognized as president acting in the country by nearly sixty countries including the United States and the United Kingdom. Since the British recognition of Guaido in February 2019, the Bank of England (BoE) has systematically refused Caracas to return part of the gold reserves it holds on its behalf. Venezuela has made several requests to recover the equivalent of a billion dollars (around 991 million euros) of bullion while Juan Guaido has written twice to the BoE to order it to reject...
    Neural activity in our brain can show whether we are experiencing loneliness, scientists say.   US researchers claim sociable people show similar 'stamps' of brain activity when they think about themselves and their friends. In comparison, brain activity in lonely people is more skewed, leading to more dissimilar activity patterns when they think about themselves and others.   While social connection with others is critical to our mental and physical well-being, how the brain maps our relationships with other people has long been a mystery.  Researchers therefore used 'functional magnetic resonance imaging' (fMRI) scans to record brain activity while people thought about themselves and others. The activity patterns of brain regions reflect 'self-other closeness' – the closer the relationship, the more the patterns resemble each other.

    (CNN)You might see another red, white and blue flag flying today over state capitols and city buildings.That banner with a bursting star in the middle is the Juneteenth Flag, a symbolic representation of the end of slavery in the United States.The flag is the brainchild of activist Ben Haith, founder of the National Juneteenth Celebration Foundation (NJCF). Haith created the flag in 1997 with the help of collaborators, and Boston-based illustrator Lisa Jeanne Graf brought their vision to life.The flag was revised in 2000 into the version we know today, according to the National Juneteenth Observation Foundation. Seven years later, the date "June 19, 1865" was added, commemorating the day that Union Army Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger rode into Galveston, Texas, and told enslaved African Americans of their emancipation.For two decades now, communities around the country have held flag-raising ceremonies on Juneteenth in celebration of their freedom.Read More"This country has so many aspects to it that are spiritual, and I believe this flag is of that nature," Haith said. "It (the idea for the design) just came through me."Designing the...
    Getty Candace Owens (left) and Garrett Rolfe (right). Candace Owens, who said calling George Floyd a martyr is bulls***, now says Garrett Rolfe, the officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks, was unjustly fired. Brooks, a 27-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by former Atlanta Police Officer Rolfe after Brooks fought with Rolfe and another officer on the scene, Devin Bronsan and — according to Rolfe in his body cam footage — took a taser. According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI), Brooks was sleeping at a Wendy’s drive-thru when someone called the police to complain. When police arrived, there was a struggle which ended with Brooks dead. According to local TV news station WMAZ-13, the mayor called for the officer who fired his weapon to be fired and the Atlanta Police Department later announced that Rolfe had been fired; Bronsan has been placed on administrative leave. Owens, a liberal-turned-conservative, is also a Trump supporter and has been a leader of the “Blexit” movement, a nonprofit that the website says is “dedicated to the advancement of urban...
    Boston residents are petitioning for the removal of a statue showing former President Abraham Lincoln standing over an emancipated slave, saying the image represents submissiveness and inequality, WCVB-TV reported. The statue currently sits in Boston's Park Place. Lincoln is standing with his hand raised over a black slave who is kneeling and has broken shackles on his wrists. It is a replica of Washington, D.C.'s emancipation memorial. An online petition, started by a Boston native named Tory Bullock, calls for the statue to be removed. It has more than 7,000 signatures. "It says that it's a statue that's supposed to represent freedom," Bullock told WCVB. "But, to me, it represents submissiveness. It represents: 'Know your place, because that's where you belong.' "This is a great opportunity to get some local black artists involved in the creation of (a new) statue, to come up with something new that represents equality," Bullock continued. "Right now, I have the momentum and leverage with everything going on in the world, that we can actually make a difference here." The removal...
    Boston’s mayor says he’s considering taking down a statue of former President Abraham Lincoln standing before a freed black man after a petition was launched for its removal. Mayor Marty Walsh’s office said he’s “willing to engage in a dialogue with the community about its future in Boston” and looking into the process required to make the change, news station WCVB reported. The statue, which is situated in the city’s Park Square, is a replica of the Emancipation Memorial in Washington and shows Lincoln with one hand raised above a kneeling man with broken shackles on his wrists. The monument was intended to show Lincoln freeing the man from slavery, but a new petition argues that it “instead represents us still beneath someone else.” “It says that it’s a statue that’s supposed to represent freedom. But, to me, it represents submissiveness,” said Tory Bullock, who started the online petition, which has at least 7,800 signatures as of Monday morning. “It represents ‘Know your place, because that’s where you belong.'” Bullock said that he’d like to see the statue replaced with...
