    (CNN)Raheem Sterling says he didn't think twice about joining Chelsea this season despite receiving racist abuse at Stamford Bridge previously in his career. Chelsea banned a fan for life from its stadium following an incident during an English Premier League match in December 2018. The individual was found to have used "racially abusive language and threatening and aggressive behavior" toward Sterling while he was playing for Manchester City, the club said. Jude Bellingham questions whether authorities care about racist abuse directed at Black footballersFive other fans were also banned for between one and two years for "abusive language and threatening and aggressive behavior."

    ANAHEIM — Mike Trout’s back condition is rare for a baseball player, but not necessarily a dire sign for his career, according to a Southern California expert. Dr. Ram Alluri, a spine surgeon with the USC Spine Center, explained on Thursday that a costovertebral dysfunction is not something that requires surgery, and can be resolved in a matter of weeks and maintained with exercises and physical therapy. “No, I don’t think it’s career-threatening,” said Alluri, who based his opinion on a general knowledge of the condition and not an examination of Trout. “Once the inflammation in the joint goes down, he’ll be able to return to full activity.” Alluri said he rarely sees this condition in athletes, and when he does it’s more often swimmers or rowers. Alluri said the condition results from a problem where the rib meets the vertebra, causing inflammation. “The most common way this is treated is non-operative, rest, Advil and Aleve,” Alluri said. “A big role is physical therapy.” Alluri said the only long-term issue could be if something in Trout’s hitting or throwing mechanics...
    Van Jones said President Joe Biden can prove he can still lead the country, but commented people will need to forget “the past six months of nutty stuff.” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) for now is willing to work with his party to help advance key legislation. Manchin said Wednesday he will help Democrats accomplish legislative goals that were believed dead. Manchin is working with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on a $670 billion bill to lower emissions, reduce the federal deficit, and lower health care and prescription drug costs. Biden celebrated the news Thursday at the White House when he said: This is the strongest bill you can pass to lower inflation, cut the deficit, reduce health care costs, tackle the climate crises and promote energy security — all the time while reducing the burdens facing working-class and middle-class families. On OutFront, CNN’s Jim Sciutto aired Biden’s comments, and commented the president will also sign a bill to boost semiconductor production. “The biggest hurdle was Joe Manchin, and until yesterday, nobody was talking about this deal being resurrected,” Sciutto...
    Commentator Colin Cowherd is rushing to support Charles Barkley’s potential move to LIV golf. A clip circulating Twitter, posted by Awful Announcing’s Brandon Contes, features Cowherd on the latest episode of The Herd with Colin Cowherd chatting about the subject. Barkley and several others who have made the move to LIV Golf have been questioned on the ethics surrounding the Saudi-backed start-up, citing the kingdom’s many civil rights abuses. Cowherd, seemingly downplayed the concerns of critics, saying, “The company that owns you, you don’t really know. You’re not a trained journalist. I’m kind of a journalist, but I don’t know what everybody does at every company I’ve worked at.” “I go to the store. I like eggs, bread. The products I buy, I don’t know who’s on the board. I don’t know their every mood. I got six kids. I got a life. Do you have to be a Washington Post journalist for every company you use? If you create a great product I’m in,” he professed. The one exception Cowherd would make to this philosophy, he said, would be...
    A White House security official who was with former President Donald Trump before the Capitol attack said he and others were in a state of “shock” after he asked to join protestors. The agent recounted a collective apprehension to allow the then-president to join what he said would turn a “democratic” event into “something else” entirely. During Thursday’s prime time hearing, the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot played a previously unheard pre-recorded interview with a member of Trump’s security team. Committee member Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA) reminded viewers Trump told a crowd before the riot he would be going with them to protest at the Capitol. He had every intention of doing so. For the first time on Thursday, the country heard from a member of Trump’s security team. The security agent’s voice was filtered to protect his identity. He was asked why he felt apprehensive about escorting Trump on foot to the Capitol. A transcript of the interview reads: AGENT: To be completely honest, we were all in a state of shock. INTERVIEWER: Because why? AGENT:...
    Comedian John Cleese blasted woke culture, saying comedy has been ruined by a need to be politically correct. While speaking at FreedomFest in Las Vegas, the Monty Python star highlighted the need to cultivate creativity and warned “wokeness” is threatening the future of entertainment. “The woke people seem to have no real understanding of meaning because a word or a phrase — what its meaning is — depends on its context and not on its dictionary definition,” Cleese told the Babylon Bee, saying that woke culture compromises truth in an attempt to gain attention. Cleese also explained that woke culture gives space to the “critical mind” to suppress creativity, telling Fox News they are “definitely in opposition to each other.” “I think it's particularly worrying at the moment because you can only create in an atmosphere of freedom, where you're not checking everything you say critically before you move on,” Cleese told Fox News. “What you have to be able to do is to build without knowing where you're going because you've never...
    With just one more game between him and the All-Star break, Aaron Boone’s pregame press conference on Sunday took on a relaxed, last day of school sort of feeling. Boone said he’s not going to completely check out, but Vacation Aaron is definitely on his way. “I’ll be on vacation, but I’ll be watching the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game,” he said. “I’m still disappointed they don’t wear our uniforms. We need to bring that back. The unis are cool, but our own unis are cooler. I’ll be tuning in with a spatula and some board shorts on.” Situations like this always allow for reflection, and Boone thought back on the entirety of his team’s first half with a noticeable admiration. He was asked what stands out about his team, a squad that has turned in one of the best first halves in MLB history. “The ways we’ve been able to win games and the confidence that this team has that we can win in any kind of way,” Boone said. “That starts with the commitment the guys...
    President Joe Biden has accused a Saudi official of lying about the topics discussed in his private meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, while again downplaying his infamous fist bump with the prince. Early on Sunday, Biden arrived back at the White House from his four-day Middle East tour, and briefly took questions from reporters gathered on the South Lawn. Hours earlier, just after Air Force One had taken off from Jeddah, Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir called a Fox News reporter and claimed that he 'did not hear' Biden confront bin Salman, known as MBS, over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Al-Jubeir's claim seems to directly contradict Biden's account of the meeting with MBS on Friday, after which the president said that he had raised Khashoggi's murder 'at the top of the meeting' and accused the crown prince of directing the plot. On the South Lawn, when asked if al-Jubeir was telling the truth about the meeting, Biden bluntly replied 'No'. President Biden, returning to WH, says Saudi FM not telling truthBiden then...

    A FRIEND of Ivana Trump's noticed that "something was wrong" and that she "lost her spark" in the year before her death while saying that she never got over her ex-husband Donald cheating on her.

    DISCOVERING just one tiny fragment of debris from the infamous Roswell UFO crash could force the US government to disclose its UFO secrets, a real-life Fox Mulder has claimed.  Former Ministry of Defence investigator Nick Pope says we are still no closer to finding out what happened at the infamous Roswell crash even after 75 years. 3Nick Pope says a fragment from the Roswell crash could be tested and proved to be a UFOCredit: SWNS 3Nick Pope was a Ministry of Defence investigatorCredit: Nick Pope However, he believes if just one tiny fragment of the debris could be found, it could force UFO disclosure as it would be "game over" for any government cover-up. Speaking on this weekend's 75th anniversary of the incident, in which an unknown craft crashed in the New Mexico desert sparking decades of theories about alien bodies and government cover-ups, UFO expert Nick said the events of July 2, 1947, remain a mystery. He told The Sun, “Roswell is literally the ground zero of the modern UFO mystery. If you stop someone in the street who has...
    Cassidy Hutchinson continued to provide bombshell testimony after a short recess during Tuesday's hastily scheduled hearing by the House Select Committee Investigating the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol. Hutchinson described a conversation in the White House with her boss, chief of staff Mark Meadows and White House counsel Pat Cipollone after Meadows spoke on the phone with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). "I remember Pat saying something to the effect of, 'Mark, we need to do something more, they're literally calling for the vice president to be f*cking hung.' And Mark had responded something to the effect of, 'You heard him, Pat. He thinks Mike deserves it. He doesn't think they're doing anything wrong.' To which Pat said something -- 'This is f*ckng crazy. We need to be doing something more,'" she testified. "Let me pause here on this point," Vice-Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) said. "The rioters chanted 'hang Mike Pence.' The president of the United States, Donald Trump, said that, 'Mike deserves it' and that those rioters were not doing anything wrong." Cheney noted that Trump had expressed...
    By WILL WEISSERT WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Saturday signed the most sweeping gun violence bill in decades, a bipartisan compromise that seemed unimaginable until a recent series of mass shootings, including the massacre of 19 students and two teachers at a Texas elementary school. “Time is of the essence. Lives will be saved,” he said in the Roosevelt Room of the White House. Citing the families of shooting victims he has met, the president said, “Their message to us was, ‘Do something.’ How many times did we hear that? ‘Just do something. For God’s sake, just do something.’ Today we did.” The House gave final approval Friday, following Senate passage Thursday, and Biden acted just before leaving Washington for two summits in Europe. “Today we say, ‘More than enough,’” Biden said. “It’s time, when it seems impossible to get anything done in Washington, we are doing something consequential.” The legislation will toughen background checks for the youngest gun buyers, keep firearms from more domestic violence offenders and help states put in place red flag laws that make...
    “I want to make sure we actually do something useful, something that is capable of becoming a law, something that will have the potential to save lives,” John Cornyn, the lead Republican negotiator, said on the Senate floor Tuesday, according to The Hill. “I’m happy to report as a result of the hard work of a number of senators in this chamber that we’ve made some serious progress,” he said. But Lee, who did not vote for the motion to proceed, criticized the fact that Republicans who did not take part in the negotiations were asked to take a blind vote without reading the bill. \u201chttps://t.co/AB0lmGDKnn\u201d — Mike Lee (@Mike Lee) 1655862386 "There were a group of senators, ten Republicans and ten Democrats, who got together and wrote this behind closed doors.

Senators still didn't," Lee said. "We received the bill text,...
    Fox News host Jesse Watters praised CNN for its pivot toward “the middle” as he noted the network’s personalities have been asking tough questions about President Joe Biden. “Something really strange is happening over at CNN,” the host said Wednesday on his show. “They are turning their backs on Joe Biden. We noticed it on Monday when Don Lemon decided to get tough on Biden’s press secretary.” Watters then aired an interview snippet wherein Lemon quizzed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the president’s “stamina.” “We were just as shocked as the French woman was,” Watters said. “The times, they are a-changing.” The Fox News host showed another clip of Lemon explaining why he asked Jean-Pierre about Biden’s energy. “First of all, I’m a journalist,” Lemon explained. “That’s my job is to ask questions, and as the person who represents the administration and the president, it’s her job to answer those questions.” In the clip, Lemon also noted Biden often has difficulty communicating effectively. “He is not the only one seeing the light,” Watters said. “Over the last 24...
    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the words of the fiancé of the late Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi ahead of President Joe Biden’s visit to Saudi Arabia next month were “devastating.” Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi regime, was murdered in the Saudi embassy in Turkey in 2018. U.S. intelligence blamed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, or MBS, for being behind the act. During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, a reporter quoted Hatice Cengiz, who said earlier in the day that she was “very disappointed” that Biden plans to meet with MBS and that her message to the president is that “if you have to put oil over principles and expediency over values can you at least ask where is Jamal’s body” and “what happened to his killers.” The reporter asked whether Biden “ask the crown prince these questions.” In response, Jean-Pierre said, “First I want to say just hearing that is devastating, right? It is Jamal Khashoggi’s widow and so clearly our hearts go out to her and the pain that she’s currently going through.” Jean-Pierre...
    MERCEDES need to fix their porpoising issues themselves and not rely on Formula One to change the rules, according to pundit Martin Brundle. Lewis Hamilton and George Russell have suffered bouncing problems throughout the 2022 season so far, with the seven-time world champion driving through horrific pain in his back at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. 3Mercedes claimed third and fourth in Azerbaijan but their porpoising issues continuedCredit: Getty 3Brundle feels Mercedes need to fix the problems themselvesCredit: Getty The new regulations for the 2022 season have been difficult for many teams to get to grips with. And Mercedes, who finished third and fourth last weekend, recently made noises to the FIA - F1's governing body - about a potential rule change which would allow them to adjust the ride height of the cars.

    (CNN)Officer Eugene Goodman, the US Capitol Police officer who led the mob of protesters away from the Senate chamber on January 6, 2021, as senators and then-Vice President Mike Pence were evacuating, testified on Monday that the mob breaching the Capitol and breaking into the lower levels of the building "looked like something out of medieval times."Goodman described in court the scene at the western front of the Capitol, where rioters first breached the Capitol and "where you see one huge force clashing with the other."

    BlazeTV host Dave Rubin blasted Pride Month and their takeover of the rainbow during a recent Q & A session on his show. Rubin was asked about his thoughts on Pride Month during the Thursday episode of his show The Rubin Report. He promptly said, “I mean, first off, you know, pride is not something you need a month for. Pride isn’t even something you need a day for. Pride isn’t something you have to scream about. Like, I am proud of what I do, the work that I do, what I’ve presented to the world, I suppose.” He continued, “I wasn’t always proud of everything that I’ve done. I’m not proud of everything I’ve done in my past. You know what I mean? But that first off the idea that it’s a month is just completely ridiculous that we have a month, a black history month and a pride month. None of it means anything!” “It’s all corporate package nonsense,” Rubin declared. “But there’s something specific about the word pride that I don’t like. It’s like pride isn’t...
    (CNN)Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, the lead Democrat in the bipartisan negotiations on gun safety reform, told CNN he believes there will be more than 10 Republicans supporting gun safety reform in the Senate."I think we will put together a package that will get more than 10 Republican votes," he told CNN's John Berman on "New Day" Thursday.Lawmakers have been facing intense pressure to act in the wake of recent mass shootings in the United States, and at least 10 Republicans need to vote with Democrats to clear the 60-vote threshold to break a filibuster and pass legislation. Murphy said he hopes the group can still reach agreement on a package by the end of the week. "We're still driving towards that goal," he said. "This is complicated law, and we want to make sure that we get it right, not do it fast. So everybody is still at the table, nobody is walking away, and I'm still confident we have a path to get there."He added: "Time is never our friend when we're talking about getting people to the...
    (CNN)With 14 French Open titles now to his name, the sporting world is running out of superlatives to describe Rafael Nadal. For one athlete to have so much success at a single event is wholly unprecedented, while Nadal has also set himself apart from Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic by winning 22 grand slam titles to his rivals' 20."There is no word to describe this feat," Federer's coach Ivan Ljubicic said after the Spaniard's straight sets victory against Casper Ruud in Sunday's French Open final."Don't think good old Phillippe (Chatrier) would mind if his court changes the name to Rafael Nadal -- (a) statue is not enough." But Nadal, always eager to understate his achievements, thinks his record at Roland Garros could one day be bettered.Read More"I always consider myself a very normal guy, so if I did it, maybe somebody else can do it," he told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Monday.

    Former Attorney General William Barr praised the case brought by special counsel John Durham against Democratic cybersecurity lawyer Michael Sussmann, even though the prosecutor lost the legal fight this week. More significant than securing a conviction, Barr reasoned Wednesday, is how Durham has pulled back the curtain regarding the extent to which Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and its allies spread theories tying rival Donald Trump to Russia in the final months of the election. "I’m very proud of John Durham. And I do take responsibility for his appointment," Barr told Fox News host Jesse Watters. "I think he and his team did an exceptionally able job both digging out very important facts and presenting a compelling case to the jury." Sussmann was charged with lying to the FBI about whom he was representing when, in September 2016, he presented internet data that suggested a now-discredited link between Trump and Russia's Alfa-Bank. In particular, Sussmann was indicted on charges of concealing his clients — Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and “Tech Executive-1,” known to be former Neustar executive Rodney Joffe —...
    State senators in Ohio this week are debating a bill that would allow teachers in schools to carry firearms in schools after 22 hours of firearms training. Among the supporters of the measure is Republican state Sen. Terry Johnson. The Ohio House of Representatives passed the legislation in November. Its Republican sponsor in that chamber – Rep. Thomas Hall – said current law requires teachers to have undergone about 750 hours of training before they can carry a firearm at school. Hall stated that “750-plus hours is not a realistic or practical requirement for full-time staff to complete in order to simply keep our students and educators safe.” The bill would drastically reduce that number to 22 hours of training, including two hours of hands-on instruction. During a Senate debate on Wednesday, Johnson lauded the bill. “Do Something” was the rallying cry for those seeking action in Ohio to prevent gun violence after the Dayton shooting Ohio Senate is debating bill to arm teachers/staffers in schools.

    Quarterback Lamar Jackson tweeted Friday that he plans to attend the Ravens’ organized team activities, lashing out at an NFL analyst who questioned why Jackson would miss the first week of the team’s voluntary practices. “This part of OTAs is Voluntary my Guy,” Jackson wrote, responding to a video in which NBC analyst and former NFL quarterback Chris Simms said he didn’t understand why a young quarterback would skip OTAs. “I will be there, just not on your watch.” Jackson, who didn’t say when he planned to return, added that there were “probably other QBs not attending Voluntary OTAs either but since it’s Lamar it’s a huge deal. Find something else to talk about.” He ended the tweet with an eye-roll emoji and, in a subsequent message, tagged his private quarterback tutor, Adam Dedeaux. Only three other projected starting quarterbacks missed the first week of OTAs: the Arizona Cardinals’ Kyler Murray, who’s seeking a long-term contract extension, and the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Tom Brady, both established veterans. Jackson, the 2019 NFL Most Valuable Player,...
    "If yesterday and two weeks ago and all of what we've been through hasn't been a call for each and every one of us for help, for our neighborhood and what's going on with them individually and how we're protecting, policing and serving one another throughout our community, something has to be done and a change has to happen now," Prescott said. His teammate, defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, added that communities need to come together to make schools safter. "It's very hard. It's nerve wracking," Lawrence said. "Every time I have chance to go in the locker room, I hit up my wife. 'How are the kids? Are they home yet?' It's something you wouldn't expect. But this is what we are dealing with." He elaborated on a social media post he made Tuesday asking how he financially supports schools that need "better security systems, security personnel and security training." "This is all of us. All of us are going to have to step in," he said. "Make sure we are builder a safer work space, safer environment...
    U.S. Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), one of two major roadblocks to Democrats passing President Joe Biden’s top agenda items including gun control, just one day after an 18-year old gunman massacred 21 people in Texas including 19 elementary school children, offered to be open to discussion but made clear she does not believe in a federal solution to the gun violence that plagues America. The United States is the only country in the world with a gun crisis of this magnitude. The leading cause of death for children and teens is now a gun. Republicans allowed the 1994 federal ban on semi-automatic weapons to expire in 2004. A 2019 study found “Mass-shooting fatalities were 70% less likely to occur during the federal ban period.” Senator Sinema appeared to disagree with that study in remarks to reporters late Wednesday morning. “I asked her if she was willing to set aside the filibuster,” Punchbowl News co-founder Jake Sherman reports. “She said she didn’t believe ‘that DC solutions are realistic here.'” The federal assault weapons ban was a “DC solution.” Sinema also told...
    Tucker Carlson has hit back at former Fox News colleague Carl Cameron for recent comments saying the host should be be jailed or 'end up in something worse,' for his show’s content. '“Maybe wind up in jail or maybe something worse”' Carlson said Monday, quoting comment made by the former reporter over the weekend to CNN's Jim Acosta, which criticized the host for spreading false and potentially harmful material. 'What’s "something worse?"' Carlson, 53, asked his audience, after airing a clip of the remarks from former reporter Cameron. 'We’re not sure what “something worse” is - but it certainly feels like we’re moving toward it at a very high speed at this point,' Carlson seemed to warn, before ominously adding, 'That’s the end point to talk like that - "something worse."' Carlson - who has come under fire for comments that leftist critics say support 'The Great Replacement theory, a racist ideology that allegedly inspired the accused Buffalo mass shooter and New Zealand Mosque killer - went on to criticize the left for what trying to push a narrative that he is racist.  ...
    NEWTON, Mass. (AP) — Newly elected Hall of Famer David Ortiz knows he’s got to enjoy life every day after his shooting in the Dominican Republic nearly three years ago. “Without a doubt,” he told The Associated Press Monday morning at his charity golf tournament. “Life continued. You never know what’s next,” he said, walking the grounds toward a golf cart before he headed out to take pictures with players. “You’ve just got to focus on doing well and making sure everyone around you is taken care of.” In June 2019, Ortiz was ambushed by a man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at close range. Doctors in the Dominican Republic removed Ortiz’s gallbladder and part of his intestine after the shooting and he underwent further surgery in the U.S. The longtime Red Sox slugger was elected to the Hall on his first ballot by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America in January, making 77.9% of the ballots — just over the 75% threshold needed for election. He said it’s changed his life...
    Fox News' former chief political correspondent has joined a chorus of voices calling for serious repercussions against one of the network's most prominent voices: Tucker Carlson.  During an interview with CNN's Jim Acosta Saturday, former Fox reporter Carl Cameron was asked: 'Do you think the Murdoch family in charge of Fox will ever pull the plug on Tucker?' Cameron, 60, went on to compare Carlson's broadcasts to falsely shouting fire in a crowded movie theater.  Cameron said: 'The fact of the matter is, if you disturb the peace by starting a riot in a movie theater, cops are going to arrest you and you might end up in jail or you might end up in something worse.' For years, Carlson, one of Fox News most popular hosts, has dealt with accusations that he has promoted white nationalist talking points Cameron went on to challenge President Joe Biden to take serious action against Carlson and social media.  He said: 'The president has to be more forceful and sooner or later the law enforcement and the US government is going to...
    NASA says something strange is happening with our Universe and how quickly it's expanding.Scientists have been studying new data from the Hubble Space Telescope.They say the expansion rate has become much quicker compared to the expectations."You are getting the most precise measure of the expansion rate for the universe from the gold standard of telescopes and cosmic mile markers," said Nobel Laureate Adam Riess of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) and the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.Observations also showed other galaxies are moving away from our Milky Way faster.But scientists cannot yet figure out why, so all they're saying for now is that something bizarre is underway."The cause of this discrepancy remains a mystery. But Hubble data, encompassing a variety of cosmic objects that serve as distance markers, support the idea that something weird is going on, possibly involving brand new physics," officials said in a news release.
    President Joe Biden called the outbreak of monkeypox something 'everybody should be concerned about, and his security advisor says he has been briefed on the situation.   'They haven't told me the level of exposure yet but it is something that everybody should be concerned about,' Biden said as he left South Korea en route to Japan on a trip that is focused on economic and security issues.  'We're working on it hard to figure out what we do and what vaccine if any might be available for it. It is a concern in that if it were to spread it would be consequential.' 'That's all they told me,' he concluded, presumably referencing his advisors.  'We're working on it hard to figure out what we do,' he added.

    PYEONGTAEK, South Korea (AP) — President Joe Biden said Sunday that recent cases of monkeypox that have been identified in Europe and the United States were something “to be concerned about.” In his first public comments on the disease, Biden added: “It is a concern in that if it were to spread it would be consequential.” The president was asked about the disease as he spoke to reporters at Osan Air Base in South Korea, where he visited troops before taking off for Japan to continue his first trip to Asia as president. “They haven’t told me the level of exposure yet but it is something that everybody should be concerned about,” Biden said. He added that work was underway to determine what vaccine might be effective. Monkeypox is rarely identified outside of Africa, but as of Friday, there were 80 confirmed cases worldwide, including at least two in the United States, and another 50 suspected ones. Although the disease belongs to the same virus family as smallpox, its symptoms are milder. People usually recover within...
    Bill Maher said on Friday that people should be allowed to ask questions about the human race “changing at a previously unprecedented rate” without it being attributed to bigotry, especially when it comes to kids. “we’re literally experimenting on children,” he said of puberty blockers and other measures that are part of an LGBTQ “trend” among America’s youth. “New Rule: If something about the human race is changing at a previously unprecedented rate, we have to at least discuss it,” said Maher in the popular recurring segment. He pointed out the massive trend upward in the LGBT population of the United States, from less than 1% before 1946 to the whopping 20.85% of Gen Z self-identifying. “If we follow this trajectory, we will all be gay in 2054,” said Maher. “I’m just saying that when things change this much, this fast, people are allowed to ask, what’s up with that? All the babies are in the wrong bodies? Was there a mix-up at the plant like with Cap’n Crunch’s ‘Oops All Berries’?” He said that it’s all for the...
    THE universe is expanding at a strange rate, new data from the Hubble Space Telescope suggests. Nasa on Thursday revealed that the Hubble Space Telescope completed a nearly 30-year marathon of data collection. 1The universe is expanding at a strange rate, new data from the Hubble Space Telescope suggests. (Photo By Encyclopaedia Britannica/UIG Via Getty Images)Credit: Getty With this data, Hubble was able to identify dozens of markers for space and time to help scientists measure the expansion rate of the universe. However, the more precise those measures become over the years, the more they indicate that "something weird" is happening, Nasa said. There is a huge discrepancy between the current rate of expansion compared to observations from right after the Big Bang. Scientists are unable to explain this phenomenon, which they say "predicts a different expansion value," per Nasa.

    Dr. Jordan Peterson has quit Twitter after facing backlash for declaring that plus-size Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Yumi Nu is “not beautiful.” “Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that,” Peterson tweeted Monday afternoon in response to a New York Post tweet about Nu, who is featured this year on a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition cover. Sorry. Not beautiful. And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that. https://t.co/rOASeeQvee — Dr Jordan B Peterson (@jordanbpeterson) May 16, 2022 Peterson was subsequently attacked for his comment, with one Twitter user writing, “‘authoritarian’? Chunky women on magazine covers? You sound like a parody of you.” The account owner, known as “Vaush,” is a socialist YouTuber frequently mocked for his hot takes on lowering the age of consent and child pornography. Peterson responded, stating, “It’s a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly changed by those who know better,” and he included links to two academic papers on attractiveness. Its a...
    "Biden essentially wants blue-collar workers like truck drivers — who didn't have the luxury of going to college to get drunk for four years — to bail out a bunch of upper-middle-class kids who chose to spend tens of thousands of dollars that they didn't have on worthless gender study degrees," Donald Trump Jr. said, according to the Washington Post. Progressive Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has responded to a question about how cancelling student debt would benefit those who have already paid off their debts: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: Not every program has to be for everybody. People with apartments pay for first time homeowner benefits. Young people pay for Medicare for our seniors. People who take public transit pay for car infrastructure," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "Maybe student loan forgiveness doesn't impact you. That doesn't make it bad. I am sure there are certainly other things that student loan borrowers' taxes pay for. We can do good things and reject the scarcity mindset that says doing something good for someone else comes...
    Trump has not committed to running for president in 2024 but has very publicly flirted with the possibility of running once more to seek the Republican Party’s nomination for president. In February at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump suggested that the Democratic Party will soon experience a series of high-profile losses at the national level. He said, “They’re going to find out the hard way starting November 8 and even more so starting November 2024.” In 2021, after Joe Biden entered the White House, Fauci said that it was “liberating” to work under the new president. Fauci said, “I can tell you I take no pleasure at all being in a situation of contradicting the president, so it was really something that you didn’t feel you could actually say something and there wouldn’t be any repercussions about it.” He continued, “The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence and science is, and let the science speak – it is somewhat of a liberating feeling.”
    Another sailor on the USS George Washington attempted suicide, after seven deaths in the last year and three in a week in April. The young serviceman's mother, who spoke to DailyMail.co m, said she was furious with Navy leadership who failed to inform her that her son had been hospitalized after drinking large amounts of hand sanitizer. Despite this being his second alleged attempt to kill himself, the sailor was not among around 200 offered a chance to move off the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the mother said. After waking up in a Newport, Virginia, military medical facility on Tuesday her son told her he was ordered to return to his duties on the ship Friday. The mother asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by the Navy for speaking out. 'His words from Wednesday night are still haunting me,' she said. 'He said that his plan was that in 30 days, he will be separated from the Navy. He said if it's longer than 30 days, then his next attempt will not be a failure. It will be a...

    Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) said there are no regulations on sperm and men’s bodily autonomy because ending abortion is ultimately about “control” of women. Bush joined MSNBC’s The ReidOut on Wednesday where she offered her take on the potential the Supreme Court might overturn Roe v. Wade, and the Senate failed to advance a bill to codify Roe into law. A vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act failed 49-51 Wednesday. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) joined Republicans in voting against advancing the bill, which would have needed 60 votes to pass. “We’re going to be voting for a piece of legislation that I will not be voting for today,” Manchin said before the vote. Joy Reid welcomed Bush to discuss the vote and the topic of abortion rights. The congresswoman complained efforts to overturn restrict abortion are about “control” of women’s bodies. “Opposition to abortion care has never been about a baby,” Bush said. “It’s never been about children because if it was, we’d have better resources for when the child is actually born, but so it was never about that....
    (CBS4) — It’s an issue that’s affecting all of us in Denver, but none more so than downtown businesses. (credit: CBS) “It’s scary, being completely honest; it’s very scary,” said Gabriel DeCastro, assistant general manager at El Tejano and Loaded near Market Street and 20th Street. “We have to have cops every Friday and Saturday. We have to double up on security just so I can keep the staff and my people who come to enjoy themselves safe.” DeCastro is seeing more and more crime in the area, and he said it’s hurting business. The two establishments have only been open about eight months, but still feel the impact. “Maybe two, three weeks ago, someone got shot in the corner,” Decastro said. “There are fights on the corner, fights across the street, they block the street, they fight on the street. The shootings, knives — it’s been very challenging. It’s something that I didn’t expect. I believe the owners and higher management didn’t expect it at all.” Saturday night, Denver police responded to another shooting in the area near 16th...
