    Getty Eagles QB Jalen Hurts is a Texas native who grew up supporting the Houston Texans. Hall of Famer Michael Irvin has a well-known reputation for making bombastic claims and hot takes. The Dallas Cowboys legend loves hearing himself talk, whether he’s right or wrong. Let’s hope Irvin is right about Jalen Hurts and the 2022 Philadelphia Eagles. The man known as The Playmaker has been on the Hurts’ hype train since August when he predicted a “Philadelphia dynasty” was in the making. One month later, Irvin’s bravado has reached a fever pitch especially after hearing Hurts’ passionate post-game victory speeches. One particular quote really rankled him, in a great yet ugly way. Here is the transcript from that clip: I get chills thinking about it. He said, ‘I say to all my playmakers we cannot just feel the temperature in the room, we must be the thermometer.’ Do y’all get how great that is? Oh snap! All my playmakers we can’t just see what’s going on in the game we gonna set the tone [Irvin was...
    The No. 3 Republican in the Senate said Sunday that he doesn't think a president can declassify documents simply by 'thinking about it' - after the former president made the bold claim in an interview last week. Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democratic critic of Trump's who is investigating him on the January 6 select committee, put it even more bluntly: 'Those comments don't demonstrate much intelligence of any kind.' Trump's defense against accusations that he knowingly took classified documents from the White House when he left office last year raised eyebrows during an interview last week with Fox News primetime host Sean Hannity. He told the conservative host that the documents seized by the FBI during an unannounced search of his Mar-a-Lago mansion were declassified because he deemed them so with his mind. Senator Republican Conference Chair John Barrasso was asked about the claim during his own interview, with ABC News' This Week on Sunday. 'I've not heard that one before,' Barrasso told host George Stephanopoulos. 'I’ll tell you, in terms of national security documents, we have to always use...
    ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos cornered Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) into admitting he disagrees with Donald Trump’s claim he could declassify sensitive documents merely by thought. Speaking to Barrasso on Sunday for ABC’s This Week, Stephanopoulos asked the senator about the former president’s attempt to defend himself for keeping top secret documents at Mar-a-Lago. After repeatedly pushing his dubious claim that the Mar-a-Lago documents were declassified, Trump took his claims to a new level last week when he told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday that presidents can declassify by just “thinking about it.” Trump’s claim has been dismissed by his fellow Republicans, and Stephanopoulos noted that the former president’s lawyers are struggling to make that claim in court. “Even his lawyers have provided no evidence that he declassified the documents,” Stephanopoulos said. Asked if he agrees with Trump’s claims about declassifying by thought, Barrasso answered “I’ve not heard that one before” before digressing in protest of the FBI’s search for the documents at Mar-a-Lago. “I don’t know anything about the rules for when a president declassifies documents and information,” he...
    The View co-hosts laughed out loud mocking former President Donald Trump for saying that documents can be declassified “even by thinking about it.” Thursday’s The View played a soundbite of Fox News host Sean Hannity’s Wednesday interview with Trump, who defended taking classified documents to Mar-a-Lago, which was raided by the FBI last month over Trump and his people allegedly not handing them back over to the National Archives in a timely manner and over the fear that sources and methods could be put at risk. “If you’re the president of the United States you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago or to wherever you’re sending it, and it doesn’t have to be a process,” he said. After playing the soundbite, co-host Whoopi Goldberg looked like she was meditating. “What are you doing, Whoopi?” asked co-host Joy Behar. “I’m thinking him into jail,” Goldberg said after a couple of moments, prompting laughter from her co-hosts. “You can just think about stuff,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “Just think about…,”...
    Former President Donald Trump recently suggested that presidents don't necessarily have to conduct a formal process when it comes to declassifying documents. In fact, the former president claimed documents can be declassified “even by thinking about it.” During a recent interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Trump offered his take on the top-secret documents taken from the White House and transported to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla. READ MORE: Team Trump refuses special master's order to list which Mar-a-Lago documents Trump 'declassified' “There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it,” Trump told Hannity. “If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, ‘It’s declassified.’ Even by thinking about it.” The former president went on to offer more context to his unfounded claim. According to Trump, a president has the power to make any decision he desires even without a formal process. “There can be a process, but there doesn’t have to be. You’re the president. You make that decision. So when you send it, it’s declassified,” Trump...
    During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity at Mar-a-Lago, which was raided last month by the FBI in search of classified documents, former President Donald Trump claimed the president can declassify material “even by thinking about it.” When Hannity asked about the declassification process, Trump replied: “There doesn’t have to be a process, as I understand it.” “Different people see different things. But as I understand it, there doesn’t have to be. If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified. Even by thinking about it,” he asserted. “It doesn’t have to be a process. It can be a process but it doesn’t have to be. You’re the president. You make that decision. So when you send it [to Mar-a-Lago or “wherever”], it’s declassified. We — I declassified everything,” Trump insisted, even though his lawyers have not made that claim in court. On another legal front, Trump was accused earlier Wednesday, along with his three oldest children, of business and tax fraud in a lawsuit filed by New York Attorney General...
    National security attorney Bradley P. Moss said he tried not to laugh when he heard former President Donald Trump claim a president can declassify documents merely by “thinking about it.” Trump sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity for an hour-long interview at Mar-a-Lago that touched on several subjects, including the August FBI raid of his home where agents found thousands of government documents. At one point, Trump told Hannity he was able to declassify documents simply by “thinking about it.” Asked if a president has a process for declassification, Trump said: If you’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying, ‘It’s declassified,’ even by thinking about it because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago or wherever you’re sending it. And there doesn’t have to be a process. There can be a process but there doesn’t have to be. You’re the president. On The Last Word, host Lawrence O’Donnell played the clip and asked Moss for his thoughts. Moss responded: Yeah, I saw that clip right before I came on and I tried not to...
    Donald Trump claimed the president of the United States can declassify government documents simply by declaring them as such, or “even by thinking about it.” In August, FBI agents executed a search warrant at the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, where they found thousands of government documents Trump was supposed to give to the National Archives upon leaving office. Some of the material is classified. Trump has publicly claimed he declassified all the documents. However, his attorneys have not dared to make that claim in court as they tangle with lawyers from the Department of Justice in the case. Appearing on Wednesday’s Hannity, Trump told Sean Hannity he declassified the documents and that there isn’t much to the process – or lack thereof – as he understands it. “A president has the power to declassify,” the Fox News host stated. “You have said on Truth Social a number of times you did declassify.” “I did declassify, yes,” Trump said. “Is there a process?” Hannity asked. “What was your process?” “There doesn’t have to be a process as I understand...
    As talk of the 2024 Republican Primary heats up, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney discussed the potential candidates from his party, including Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney.  Romney spoke at the South Valley Chamber of Commerce in Sandy, Utah on Thursday and told the audience he believes Cheney would have no chance of winning the presidency. While Cheney has spoken recently about running, Romney asserted 'I don’t know if she really wants to do that. She would not become the nominee if she were to run. I can’t imagine that would occur.' 'I’m not going to encourage anyone to run for president. I’ve done that myself, and that’s something I’m not doing again,' said the Senator from Utah, who lost the presidential election in 2012 to Barack Obama. Cheney was handed a massive 37-point defeat in her Wyoming primary against Harriet Hageman, and indicated she may attempt a presidential run Mitt Romney, who represents Utah in the US Senate, discouraged Cheney from running and said 'she would not become the nominee if she were to run' Cheney earned only 28.9 percent...

    Udonis Haslem discussed grants Monday at Nova Southeastern University. What he wouldn’t grant, however, was definitive insight on what comes next regarding his NBA career. “I don’t know,” Haslem said after completing a presentation on behalf of his foundation. “We’re thinking about it. But either way, I’m always going to be a part of the Heat family. I ain’t going nowhere, whether I play or not. I’m always going to impact that organization.” Although the intent to return for a 20th season with the Miami Heat had appeared evident, based on the team’s approach with its roster this offseason, the veteran power forward continued to defer an announcement. Last year, Haslem announced his return for a 19th season on Aug. 15. “For me,” he said, “it’s just a lot going on. I have a lot of things that I had to really, really think about. Twenty years is a conversation I had with my father.” Haslem’s father, Johnnie Haslem, died last August at 70. “Things change,” Haslem said. “He’s not here no more. Goals change.” The Heat have retained a...
    After a staggering loss in her congressional primary Tuesday U.S. Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) is making more headlines at the moment than the man who promised to ensure her defeat: Donald Trump. Cheney says she’s “thinking about” running for president. Rep. Cheney lost her Wyoming GOP primary by a 66.3% to 28.9% estimated margin Tuesday night, after winning her district just two years ago with more than 70% of the votes, and having the added benefit of being the daughter of a former GOP vice president, defense secretary, and congressman. As she has since the January 6, 2021 insurrection, Cheney still has Donald Trump in her sights.

    HOUSTON, Texas -- Days after barely escaping the mass shooting at a 4th of July parade in Illinois with their children, a Texas family is sharing their survival story.Valerie Dieterich grew up in Highland Park, Illinois, where the shooting unfolded.Her parents still live there.This year, she was excited to bring her husband, Tracy Dieterich, and their two daughters to enjoy the town's celebrations."I'm so excited for my children to have this cute 4th of July and this parade, and go watch fireworks at night," Valerie said. "All of that was stolen from us, and people's lives were stolen, and people were permanently injured. They were destroyed."In videos and photos shared with ABC7's sister station in Houston, the couple, their children, and the children's grandfather were seated along the sidewalk, half a block from where the alleged shooter, Robert Crimo III, opened fire from a rooftop."They were loud, really loud," Tracy said. "It sounded like a machine gun, but I think even if I was inside a mall, you would think, 'Is that fireworks?' So there was a disconnect of what...
      Dedicated Pasadena Humane volunteer Samantha Heer has fostered more than 100 hundred kittens since 2014, including Sokka (pictured here with Samantha). The animal shelter is in desperate need of kitten foster volunteers right now. Learn more about their foster program at pasadenahumane.org/foster. (Photo courtesy of Samantha Heer)    A few months ago, I wrote about the impending arrival of kitten season. We had started to see the first trickle of bottle babies flowing into the shelter. Kittens like Parsley, Mint and Sage — all three now adopted — who were just days old when they came to Pasadena Humane, needing bottle feeding and round-the-clock care for their survival. With summer fast approaching, I can now say kitten season is in full swing. Baby felines who need temporary foster homes arrive at our doors daily, while adoptable-age kittens fill our kennels as they wait for new homes. Obvious cute factor aside, kitten season puts an enormous strain on shelter resources and staff. We depend on our wonderful and dedicated foster volunteers to keep us afloat. These amazing folks open their...
    President Joe Biden recently voiced his displeasure to reporters traveling with him on what he sees as the 'quality and tenor of press coverage,' which he said was too focused on his low poll numbers and not the country's economic recovery. On Wednesday, Politico reported on an off-the-record chat Biden had with journalists on board Air Force One while traveling out west, where he voiced these frustrations.  But they were apparent, too, in comments he made during his trip to Los Angeles for this week's Summit of the Americas. On Thursday, he called out the press for taking him too literally and seriously - after talking about how 'sensationalized' the coverage has become to late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday.  'I've only been president for a year and a half but every time I walk in a room and everybody stands up I think there may be a fire or something,' he told a roomful of. CEOs to kick off his second day at the conference of North, Central and South American leaders.  'Press that was a joke,' he said. 'That was...
    Former Texas GOP Rep. Will Hurd, who represented Uvalde until last year, tore into both Republicans and Democrats for offering too much lip service and not enough action on gun control.  'We are not helpless, and if the people we elect to address our country’s tough challenges think nothing can or should be done beyond thoughts, prayers and complaining about the filibuster, then it’s time we help them find a new career,' the former congressman said.   Nineteen children and two teachers were killed by an 18-year-old gunman in Hurd's former district almost two weeks ago.  'Neither horrifying headlines nor stunning statistics have generated substantial legislative action,' Hurd wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times Monday, adding that 1,565 children have been killed in mass shootings since 2009. Hurd said he believed in the 'plain language of the Second Amendment' and touted his A rating from the NRA throughout his time in Congress. He also noted that he was one of only 8 Republicans to vote for legislation that would have required universal background checks, H.R. 8.  Former Texas...
    Bloomberg noted that it could be months before the deal is officially closed. Musk has been openly declaring that he plans to make the social media platform a place that allows free speech. "I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people," Musk tweeted on Tuesday. Many on the political right have been critical of Twitter for engaging in censorship, and have been celebrating Musk's move to buy the company, but Musk warned that individuals on both sides of political spectrum will likely be somewhat displeased. "For Twitter to deserve public trust, it must be politically neutral, which effectively means upsetting the far right and the far left equally," he tweeted on Wednesday. "Attacks are coming thick and fast, primarily from the left, which is no surprise, however I should be clear that the right will probably be a little unhappy too. My goal is to maximize area under the...
    Dear Amy: Recently, I was in a car accident involving a young man who tried to commit suicide by jumping into my car’s path. Amy Dickinson  My 2-year-old was in the car with me but (thankfully) doesn’t seem to have noticed when I hit the man. The man survived. I found out (through the police who arrived on the scene) that he had jumped into another car’s path a few minutes before. I was simply the next car to come along. The man admitted to both the paramedics and the police that he jumped in front of my car with the intent of killing himself. Several officers tried to reassure me that I wasn’t in trouble and that I did nothing wrong. Related Articles Advice | Ask Amy: What she broke costs half her paycheck.

    HBO's Real Time host Bill Maher delivered a monologue Friday night that criticized both parties for what he felt was making the Russian invasion of Ukraine about themselves, except notably for those who blamed President Joe Biden. The comedian presented his 'New Rules' at the end of the show as he does every week and delved into the war, which he says is solely about Vladimir Putin. 'Don't take this personally but don't take everything personally. Ukraine is not mostly about your pet grievances, it's about Vladimir Putin's,' he said. He cited several examples of people turning the situation into what he called 'World War Me.'  Maher pointed out that Republicans blamed the war on Biden, while Democrats blamed it on ex-President Donald Trump but then seemed to suggest it was worth considering if Putin took advantage of Biden.  'If Putin thought Trump was really that supportive of him, why didn't he invade while Trump was in office? It's at least worth asking that question if you're not locked into one intransigent thought.'  HBO's Real Time host Bill Maher...

But she also warned that “it means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that will get things done” or “a White House that we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive.” “I think that it is a time for some careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win,” Clinton told Geist. “I understand why people want to argue for their priorities.

    Jake Paul is no stranger to fast cars. Jake Paul has had a successful start to his career as a cruiserweight boxer. (Ethan Miller/Getty Images) The multi-millionaire YouTuber/boxer has owned plenty, including a Lamborghini Huracan, Tesla Model X and custom Ford Focus RS. But he might be ready to step it up a notch. In the lead up to of his December 18 fight with Tyrone Woodley, Paul appeared on the Gareth A Davies show and mentioned he'd been doing a lot of swimming as part of his training.

    Even by the crass standards of the BBC, there is something supremely ironic for it to broadcast a major two-part documentary about briefing wars between members of the Royal Family while the embers of the Martin Bashir affair are still glowing. And how counter-productive and foolish of the Corporation to refuse to let the Palace see tonight’s opening instalment, titled the Princess And The Press, before it is screened. Is it any wonder that courtiers are thinking ‘very carefully’ about future projects with the BBC where cooperation is essential, with next year’s Platinum Jubilee tributes to the Queen at the very top of the list? It is highly unusual for all three royal households, representing the Queen, the Prince of Wales and Prince William, to unite in a threat of a potential boycott of our national broadcaster but it demonstrates what is at stake. And it underlines a shared sense of collective anger at the programme.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki suggested Friday that President Joe Biden is unfazed by the 'Let's Go Brandon' chants, signs and merchandise that are supposed to be a stand-in for 'f**k Joe Biden.'    'I don't think he spends much time focused on it or thinking about it,' she said at the briefing, after a number of prominent Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, have embraced the phrase. Psaki added, 'Well, it takes two to move toward a more civil engagement and discourse in this country.'  'And the president's going to continue to operate, as you said, from the promise he made early on, which is that he wants to govern for all Americans,' Psaki stated.  During the 2020 campaign, Biden called for an end of the 'uncivil war' between Republicans and Democrats.

He went on to explain that a study found that those with larger noses will have an average penile length of 5.3 inches, whilst those with shorter noses will sit at around 4.1 inches. The study also concluded that penile length may not be determined by age, height, or bodyweight  - but actually before birth as a result. In a bid to help comfort those who may now be feeling self-conscious of their genitals, he confirmed that this means Marvel’s 'The Hulk' will in fact have a ‘tiny wee wee’ whereas 'Butt-Head' from the comedy television show,...
    As the nation has faced the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, there’s been a crucial conversation about food insecurity. As Daily Kos has covered, we’ve seen unusually long lines at food banks and schools scrambling to get enough food into cafeterias to feed hungry children. One topic that gets less coverage, but is just as is essential, is diapers.  Even before the pandemic, surveys have shown that about one-third of families struggle to afford diapers. And if your first thought is, use cloth diapers, well, that is an excellent choice, but one that has a surprisingly expensive start-up cost. It’s also a labor-intensive option, especially if you don’t have a washer and dryer at home. And as recently reported by KHN, COVID-19 has made a complicated situation even worse for families between unemployment and supply chain issues that have led to higher prices. And the government, perhaps surprisingly, is little help. While most people immediately think of babies when they hear talk of diapers, it’s important to note that older people and some people with disabilities also use diapers . The cost can...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.At a virtual live event hosted by Mother Jones on Wednesday, former US Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) confirmed that he is considering a run for Texas governor—in large part due to his concern for voting rights. “[It’s] no secret, I’m thinking about running for governor,” he told Mother Jones’ Ari Berman. “Front and center in my consideration is just this: what it means for us to live in a democracy.” Voting rights “is connected to any other right that matters to you.”  “When I thought about how I could be most effective for this state, and, I hope, this country this year, it was on the issue of voting rights,” he added. “It is connected to any other right that matters to you.”  Berman followed up: “Have you decided yet whether or not you are going to run for governor?” “I have not made a final decision. I’ve given a lot of thought to it. I am listening to a lot...
    Many women that were planning to have a child before the COVID-19 pandemic struck in spring 2020 have put those plans on pause, a new study finds. Researchers from New York University (NYU) Langone Medical Center surveyed 1,179 New York City women from April to August 2020 on their pregnancy intentions before and during the pandemic. They found that more than one-third of women who were thinking about becoming pregnant before the pandemic started have dropped those plans. Half of women who were actively attempting to get pregnant before Covid are no longer trying either, and some may drop their intentions to have another baby entirely. While many speculated the pandemic would cause a 'baby boom' due to people spending more time at home, early data has found the opposite - and that birth rates across the U.S. instead fell. Almost half of women that were attempting to get pregnant before the pandemic are no longer making that attempt, and one third of women thinking about it have dropped those plans An expected pandemic baby boom never materialized, and...

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell testifies before the Senate Banking Committee hearing on "The Quarterly CARES Act Report to Congress" on Capitol Hill in Washington, December 1, 2020.Susan Walsh | Pool | Reuters Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has a few nerves to quell among market participants wondering when the central banks will start tapping the brakes on all the help it's been providing. The big buzzword surrounding the Fed now is "tapering." It's a reference to pulling back on the monthly bond purchases that have helped keep the financial system flush with cash and have encouraged investors to continue to take on risk despite stock market valuations that are their highest since at least the dotcom bubble of the early 21st century. Markets figure that as long as the Fed keeps pumping, then it's safe to keep buying. Powell and other central bank officials say they're committed to keeping the bond purchases going — and short-term borrowing rates anchored near zero — until the economy shows that it's strong enough to run on its own. One key element to...

    Tyler Stanfield wrote his latest single, “Whiskey Heart,” when he was living in Austin, Texas, a few years ago. He says people who aren’t paying attention think it’s a song about drinking. “It’s not,” Stanfield says. “Whiskey is a metaphor. That’s kind of one of the fun things about it is I like to see if people go deeper than just thinking that it’s about getting drunk and doing that kind of thing.” The song is part of an as-yet-unreleased three-track EP and is actually about love, and the overwhelming need for it.

    On the day that Colorado banjoist Jayme Stone found out about the death of his 42-year-old brother Michael Stone, he started writing about it, trying to make sense of what was happening. Michael, who lived in British Columbia, was a well-known teacher of yoga and Buddhism, which influenced how Jayme approached the poetry, journal entries and lyrics he began to draft. One of the first things he wrote in his journal was the word "AWake," thinking about "the idea of what someone leaves in their wake and what it means to be awake to your own life," he says. It would eventually become the title of his latest album, AWake, which came out in late August. "I was just really in a grieving process and just trying to make sense of things," Stone recalls. "And it was very clear that I was going to write about this, and I was going to make music out of that experience. It took a few months before the songs started coming — and then they became the focal point of this...

Shes starting to think about it differently It feels like every other book these days holds some inadvertent resonance for this anxious, unprecedented global moment in time. Certainly, summer has yielded countless novels of quarantine and viral disease, of national unity and disruption. But Maggie O'Farrell's Hamnet, which published Stateside on Tuesday after landing in the U.K. just as the COVID-19 pandemic first started hitting Europe hard, feels especially prescient for the deeper emotional experience it offers, beyond its premise of a writer (okay, Shakespeare) and his eccentric wife, who've lost their son to the Black Death and wade through their pain and anxiety while the plague ravages the world around them. © Murdo MacLeod; Knopf Award-winning author Maggie O'Farrell returns with 'Hamnet,' the story of Shakespeare's son, which holds startling...
    DONALD Trump has said people "love" the Confederate flag and that its supporters were "not thinking about slavery".

Recent weeks have seen statues to Confederate figures pulled down by protesters and removed by local authorities as well as the banning of the Confederate flag at NASCAR events. Trump has criticised what he called a "campaign to wipe out our history", but...
