    AS winter creeps upon us, it's inevitable that the temperature will start to drop. While some of us love nothing more than climbing into bed to get cosy, others are clearly struggling with the change in weather. 1There's been an increase in Brits having vivid dreams in recent months and here experts discuss why they happen and what you can do to stop themCredit: Getty In the last month, Google searches for the term 'vivid dreams' have increased by 240 per cent. From this, it's clear that Brits are experiencing dreams they are just not used to. But it's not just those of a vivid nature, and new research from later living company Lottie, has revealed that there's also been a 91 per cent increase in 'disrupted sleep', as well as a 150 per cent increase in searches for 'intense dreams every night'. Experts have now revealed that there are reasons behind this, warning that many Brits could experience this in the coming months.

    FOR me, one of the best things about this brilliant series of Married at First Sight has been seeing such sexually empowered and liberated females. Girls like Gemma and Kasia are what representation looks like to me, and are needed to show young women it’s OK to be open, confident and honest about sex. 5One of the best things about this brilliant series of Married at First Sight has been seeing such sexually liberated females, reveals Megan Barton-HansonCredit: Playful Promises 5Megan has dated Towie star turned OnlyFans glamour girl Demi SimsCredit: Rex What a shame they’ve been paired with men who simply aren’t having it.

    Bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell recently posted some thoughts on the subject of high school sports, of all things. High schools do a good job at elevating elite athletes, he wrote, to the detriment of students of more average ability, or who lack parents who could afford to pay for soccer or baseball camps starting at age six. Gladwell, who is a lifelong, serious runner — and can run a mile at age 55 nearly as fast as I did when I was 15 and winning races on the track team — came up with a law he named after himself: In any sporting endeavor, elite achievement comes at the cost of mass participation. We can easily expand Gladwell's Law to the whole of society. Don't many of us view life in America as a dispiriting continuation of the ruthless, often shallow competitions of high school? And our thinking about how we relate to so-called elites can be complicated by our culturally driven feelings of envy and shame. At least arguably, America's national sport is not played with a...
    IT has not been a good week for Premier League football. With headbutts, managerial red cards and multi-million pound transfer requests, stars have again been accused of being overpaid and over-pampered. 6Ian Wright says criticism footballers from politicians is unwarrantedCredit: Louis Wood - The Sun 6Ian Wright is Arsenal's second highest ever goalscorer behind Thierry HenryCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd But Ian Wright, one of top-flight football’s most successful players of all time, reckons the abuse from politicians and Co is “hypocritical”.

    The mom of an 18-year-old Native American woman 'trafficked and brainwashed' by Ezra Miller has accused Warner Brothers of 'putting profits before morals' for not firing the actor from his lead role in upcoming $200million blockbuster The Flash. Sara Jumping Eagle blasted the movie giant as she and lawyer husband Chase Iron Eyes continue their battle to get 'missing' daughter Tokata 'to a safe place' and away from the scandal-hit actor's 'influence'. The desperately worried parents are pressing ahead with a court bid for a protective order against Miller, in which they allege the star 'groomed' their activist daughter before plying her with hard drugs, assaulting her and controlling her life. Since the action was launched against the 29-year-old actor – who identifies as non-binary and uses they/their pronouns – in June, a catalogue of other troubling incidents with other women has been revealed. Tokata Iron Eyes' mother Sara Jumping Eagle has accused Warner Brothers of 'putting profits before morals' for not firing Ezra Miller from his lead role in The Flash.

    A PLUS size cheerleader has opened up about the hurtful preconceptions that she wouldn’t be able to do the sport because of her size. Tiffany Price revealed that she’s had it with people saying that fitness is anything to do with body type - and she’s walking proof that it doesn’t mean you have to be small to be active. 2Tiffany is proud to represent plus size cheerleadersCredit: tiktok/@tiffanypric.e The body confident social media star shared a video on her TikTok account, which is @tiffanypric.e, hitting back at her critics.  “When people say plus size cheerleaders aren’t a thing,” the text on the video reads, as it cuts to footage of Tiffany and her fellow cheerleaders performing impressive lift after lift. She then continues defiantly: “I know they aren’t saying my name, or have evidence that this is the truth. The video concludes as Tiffany writes: “Repeat after me: fitness has no body type.” She was immediately greeted with kind comments from her followers, as they praised her for speaking out.

    ARSENAL’S previous recruitment policy was a “mess” – typified by the £72m deal for Nicolas Pepe. That’s the view of Gunners legend Alan Smith, who has hailed the work done by technical director Edu and boss Mikel Arteta to transform their transfer strategy. 2Nicolas Pepe has failed to produce since arriving in 2019Credit: Getty 2Arsenal legend Alan Smith has praised the work of Edu and Mikel ArtetaCredit: Getty And now, he has told them to go get Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans. The capture of £45m Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City has taken Arsenal’s early window activity to four players so far. Keeper Matt Turner, midfielder Fabio Vieira and winger Marquinhos have also walked through the door – keeping to the recent theme of signing young, talented stars. The club have come a long way since the days of relying on deadline day miracles or risky punts, such as forking out for Lille’s Pepe in 2019 only to be left disappointed. The Ivory Coast international has scored just 16 goals in 80 Premier League appearances, and is now down the pecking...
    (CNN)Disturbing video from the Texas Republican Convention this weekend shows convention-goers mocking GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw -- a Navy SEAL veteran who lost his right eye to a bomb in Afghanistan -- with the term "eye patch McCain." Dean ObeidallahFox News' Tucker Carlson coined the derisive nickname after the Texas lawmaker dared to express support for beleaguered Ukraine following Russia's barbaric attack on it. But apparently even more heinous in the eyes of some attendees is that Crenshaw rejected former President Donald Trump's claims that the 2020 election was stolen. One man wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat can be seen yelling in an online video, "Dan Crenshaw is a traitor!" and "He needs to be hung for treason!" As despicable as the behavior toward Crenshaw was, even more alarming were the actions taken by the Texas GOP and the convention's 5,000-plus delegates.The gathering rejected the outcome of a democratic election, supported bigotry toward the LGBTQ community and imposed far-right religious beliefs on others by seeking to have them enshrined into law. And that wasn't half of...
    by Ned Ryun   Perhaps, like me, you’ve always had a sneaking suspicion that the un-American Left is ignorant of many things. But then they open their mouths and remove all doubt. The most recent example comes from the gaping maw of Elie Mystal on MSNBC, where he claimed that, like everything else in this country apparently, the Second Amendment is the creation of long-dead, racist white supremacists who supported it for the sole purpose of putting down slave revolts keeping the enslaved populations in bondage. Of course, there is as much “truth” to that as there is in the 1619 Project. Progressives use such revisionist history to discredit the founders so that they can dismantle the founders’ republic. The basic history lesson the Left seems to have missed while being indoctrinated in our schools is this: the founders believed in natural inherent rights—ones that were given to human beings by their Creator. As these were rights given by a transcendent source. They understood that no earthly power—say, a despotic British empire—could legitimately take them away. Among those rights were life, liberty, the pursuit...

    Sarote Pruksachat | Moment | Getty Images The stock market has been off to a rough start this year. The S&P 500 Index is currently down more than 16% year to date through Monday's close. That's sparked worry for some investors. Some 43% said they're too nervous to invest in the market right now, according to Allianz Life's Quarterly Market Perceptions study, an online survey of more than 1,000 adults conducted in March. That's a nearly 10 percentage-point increase from the previous quarter, the survey found. In addition, more than half of respondents worry about a market crash, and 81% expect volatility to continue in the market this year.

    President Joe Biden criticized 'ugly' Republicans for targeting Disney at his two west coast fundraisers Thursday. 'This is not your father's Republican Party,' Biden said Thursday afternoon at a high-dollar fundraiser at the Portland Yacht Club, co-hosted by The New Republic's owner and editor Win McCormack and his political consultant wife, Carol Butler. 'This is the MAGA party.'  The president said the Republican Party is 'not even conservative in the traditional sense of conservatism.' 'I mean it's ugly. I mean, look at what's happening now in Florida. Christ, they're going after Mickey Mouse,' Biden said.    He made similar pro-Disney remarks at his second fundraiser in Seattle, Washington, headlining an affair at the lakefront home of Mary Snapp and Spencer Frazer hosted by Microsoft's President and Vice Chair Brad Smith and his wife Kathy Surace-Smith. 'There's nothing conservative about throwing Disney out of its current posture… over saying gay?' the president mused to the Seattle crowd. Earlier Thursday, Florida Republicans started the process of dissolving Disney's special status that allowed Walt Disney World to act as its own government.  Disney publicly criticized...
    Another day, another outrageous Skip Bayless take. This time the sports talking head brought the rising Memphis Grizzlies to the conversation as Bayless proclaimed Friday on Undisputed that the Grizzlies would be facing the Miami Heat for the NBA title this year. Yes, that’s right, the Memphis Grizzlies, who haven’t won a playoff series since 2015, are not only going to win a series but advance to the finals according to Bayless. I’d stick with the Nets ONLY if I see Ben Simmons making a legitimate contribution. But right now, I think the Heat are perfectly positioned, laying in the weeds atop the East to win it all. More @Undisputed, now on FS1 https://t.co/e9KtENmouJ — Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) April 15, 2022 “You have to go all the way down to 10-1 for the Heat and all the way down to 14-1 for Memphis,” Bayless explained about the current betting odds. “14-1?

    A MAJORITY of Americans say they know how to do laundry "the right way," but members of that group aren't quite clear on what the right way is. Even though young consumers are certain they're doing things right, they disagreed about things like separating clothes, and couldn't identify common symbols from garment care tags. 4A majority of Americans surveyed said they wash their clothes the 'right' wayCredit: Getty 4One thing 68 percent of respondents agreed on: they dread doing laundryCredit: Getty Conducted by OnePoll in partnership with Swash® Laundry Detergent, the recent survey looked at how 2,000 millennials and Gen Zers do their laundry. Two-thirds of Americans swear their laundry game is on point, claiming they know how to wash “the right way,” according to a new study. The survey found that 69 percent are convinced they know how to do laundry correctly, although there’s a slight difference in opinion when it comes to separating clothes. Many believe the right way to separate laundry is by separating white and colors (29 percent). READ MORE ABOUT LAUNDRYLasting laundry The 7 things you...
    On Monday, March 21, Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson — President Joe Biden’s nominee to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court — got underway. And some Republican senators, from Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, have tried to discredit Jackson by claiming that she is soft on crime. But when former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was interviewed by MSNBC’s Ari Melber on March 21, he dismissed those claims as cheap political theatrics. Melber, himself an attorney, brought Steele on his show “The Beat” along with activist Barbara Arnwine, founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition — and Melber noted that the anti-Jackson view on the far right is that she “loves criminals and wants to make sure they get out of prison right away so they can keep doing crime.” Steele responded, “It’s all politics…. It’s the ongoing trope…. that this is how you own the libs…. over issues like law and order…. Look, the reality is: There is no hook to hang a hat on...
    Supporters in Golden Valley, Arizona, wave as the 'People's Convoy' en route from California to Washington, D.C., passes through. The “trucker convoy” protests—like all right-wing protests—have never been about their advertised grievance: that is, COVID-related vaccine and mask mandates and restrictions. Whether in Canada or the United States, it’s always been right-wing street theater designed to undermine democratic institutions and discourse by creating social and political chaos, while widely sowing disinformation along the way. That’s become eminently manifest with their much-advertised American versions—which, unlike the protest that besieged Ottawa for three weeks, have splintered into about three different versions and even a localized variation with different timelines, and a couple have ended up calling it quits. Most of all, they are trundling on toward Washington, D.C., defiantly in the face of government “tyranny” that in fact is currently rolling back all such restrictions, as it said from the start it eventually would. There appear to be at least three main convoys that organized to head toward Washington: a “People’s Convoy,” an “American Freedom Convoy,” and a “Freedom Convoy USA,” all taking different...

    These “free speech advocates” (Fox News, 2/2/22) were conspicuously silent when people actually lost their jobs for criticizing cops. For right-wing and libertarian media, Joe Rogan, host of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, has become a symbol of resistance to censorship (New York Post, 2/2/22; Fox News, 2/2/22; Reason, 2/2/22; The Hill, 2/1/22). Musician Neil Young had given the streaming service Spotify, which paid a reported $100 million for exclusive rights to Rogan’s show, an ultimatum: either cut Rogan and his constant misinformation about Covid-19, or lose Young’s music. Spotify—a corporate media service that has been accused of exploiting musicians financially (Guardian, 7/29/13)―chose Rogan. Contrary to his media defenders, Rogan has not been threatened with censorship. His free speech rights were never in any kind of jeopardy. Young has not crossed into some kind of pro-deep state censorship mode; rather, he left Spotify because he disagreed with its policies, taking his business elsewhere because he has the right to do that. Young’s departure has cost Spotify $2 billion in market value (Variety, 1/29/22), as other notable musicians, like Joni...
    Trevor Noah addressed Joe Rogan’s recent exchange with controversial clinical psychologist and YouTube personality Jordan Peterson, in which the two weighed in on the term “Black.” On Tuesday’s edition of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Rogan recalled the time writer and professor Michael Eric Dyson called Peterson “a mean, mad White man” during a 2018 debate on “political correctness.” Rogan argued that Peterson was “not mean at all,” calling Dyson’s statement “dumb.” “I am White — actually that’s a lie too. I am kind of tan,” Peterson added. “And he was actually not Black, he was sort of brown.” The comment prompted Rogan to share his take on the word Black, saying, “The Black and White thing is so strange because the shades are such a spectrum of shades of people.” “Unless you are talking to someone who is, like, 100% African from the darkest place, where they are not wearing any clothes all day and they have developed all of that melanin to protect themselves from the sun, even the term Black is weird,” he continued. “When you use it for people who are...

    When far-right Oregon resident Jared Schmeck appeared on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast on December 27, he vigorously defended the insult he had hurled at President Joe Biden three days earlier — and he has complained that he is being unfairly persecuted for it. But journalist/radio host Dean Obeidallah, in a biting op-ed published by CNN’s website on December 28, slams Schmeck for trolling the president with an insult and then playing the victim card when he is called out for it. Schmeck called in during a Christmas Eve Day livestream that featured Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, telling the president “Let’s go, Brandon” —which, on the far right, is a popular anti-Biden insult and is code for “Fuck Joe Biden.” The president didn’t let Schmeck’s trolling get to him, humorously responding, “Let’s go Brandon. I agree.” Father on call with Joe Biden: "Merry Christmas and let's go Brandon!"\n\nBiden: "Let's go Brandon, I agree."pic.twitter.com/nCEy1E9UiP — The First (@The First) 1640370629 Jared Schmeck tells Steve Bannon: "Donald Trump is my president and he should still be president right now....
    CNN host Michael Smerconish said on Wednesday that Republicans including Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), whom he called “fundraising superstars,” need to stop receiving attention from the media and congressional Democrats. He made these comments during a CNN Tonight segment with Rep. Connor Lamb (D-PA) about Boebert making Islamophobic remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) Lamb said: We Democrats at large are in no way eager to go around, you know, doing these resolutions, stripping people from their committee, taking these kind of actions. We would prefer that things like this were not necessary. And that’s why we’re not rushing in response to representative Boebert’s horrible comments about one of my colleagues. I think the speaker actually had it right when she said it’s on the House Republicans to take some responsibility for their own members and she’s trying to give them time and space to do that. This isn’t something we want to do. It isn’t why we show up in Washington. we would all rather be talking about the results that we’re delivering for the American people. But we’ve tried...
    A NAIL technician shared a video of her client’s severely damaged nails - they’ve turned green, they’re lifting off, and she’s had to cut one of them right back to the cuticle. Candy Rain Salon, based in Plymouth, shared the video, which showed the effects of repeatedly getting acrylic applied over damaged nails. 4The client's nail had gone green and was curvedCredit: @candyrainsalon/Tiktok 4Megan said the salon that had done the nails hadn't provided the right treatmentCredit: @candyrainsalon/Tiktok Nail tech Megan explained that the client had had her nails done by a different salon, and she described the process of uncovering the client’s nail issues. For starters, she said, the acrylic nails are the complete wrong shape for the client. She said: “As you can see, they’re not the right shape for her nails and they’re really curving under with her natural nail growth, as they haven’t been counteracting the curve.” Megan began to realise things were really wrong, however, when she started working on the client’s thumb nail.  “This is her thumb, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on...
    Pollster Frank Luntz appeared on Fox News Wednesday to give his assessment of the election results in Virginia and New Jersey. Republican Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the blue state of Virginia. Republicans are also set to retake the state’s House of Delegates. In even bluer New Jersey, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy is in a surprisingly close race against Republican Jack Ciattarelli. Republicans have also scored some wins in the state legislature. Luntz’s assessment did not bode well for Democrats. “Trump voters are active again, and excited again, and are participating again,” Luntz told host Martha MacCallum. And it’s one of the reasons why won in Virginia and are so, so close in New Jersey.” The pollster also pointed to numbers indicating that Youngkin won the suburbs. “The suburbs have returned to voting Republican, which they hadn’t in 2016 or 2020. That combination with a better than two to one win in rural communities and small towns gives Republicans the majority.” “It’s not just what’s happening at the top of the ticket,” Luntz explained, and proceeded...
    America's political media is laser-focused on the state of Virginia Governor's race between former governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican Glenn Younkin. Virginia, while a state that has trended blue in recent years - with President Biden winning it by 10 points last year - has now been officially declared by the nonpartisan Cook Political report as a toss up. And many Republicans anecdotally feel very confident that Glenn Younkin can pull off a close win. Yet this is a race that Terry McAuliffe ought to be easily winning given how Biden performed in the state in the last general election. Instead he's flailing, with Democrats bringing everyone under the sun to campaign for him, from President Obama and Vice President Harris to President Biden himself. Sadly for him, the biggest guns the Democrats can deploy are shooting him in the foot by reminding the average Virginian voter just how out of touch their economic and social policies truly are. America's political media is laser-focused on the state of Virginia Governor's race between former governor Terry McAuliffe (second from right) and...
    (CNN)Former President Barack Obama speaks direct to camera in a new ad for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe, warning voters that their decision will make "a statement about what direction we're headed in as a country.""I know Terry McAuliffe and I can tell you as governor no one worked harder for their state," Obama says. "And I also watched Terry stand strong on the values we all care about: protecting every citizen's right to vote, fighting climate change, and defending a woman's right to choose."A McAuliffe aide said says the buy behind the ad is "seven figures" and it will run statewide.Obama will also campaign with McAuliffe on Saturday. This is a breaking story and will be updated.

    During Wednesday’s handoff from Chris Cuomo to Don Lemon, the former criticized some conservatives over their attitudes toward Afghan refugees looking to come to the United States. Lemon mentioned the fact that security fencing will be placed around the Capitol once again, after it had been taken down in July. The fencing was erected after the January 6 Capitol riot, and now barriers will be put up again ahead of a September 18 rally being held in favor of those who rioted on on that day. “Here we are,” said Lemon. “Eight months later and it seems like we’re in the same spot.” “It’s ’cause we are,” said Cuomo. “What has changed? The anger, the animus, the misinformation, the disinformation. It just gets layered on. Remember the lasagna of lies? It’s just gotten higher and higher.” He continued, “They’re not changing their tune. The only change in tune that has been perceptible to me is right at the end of the Afghanistan exit, when they were desperately trying to get people out, you had people on the right having it...
    One of the many preposterous claims coming from supporters of the vicious new Texas law against abortion is that bounty hunters — who stand to gain a $10,000 reward from the state — will somehow be "whistleblowers." The largest anti-abortion group in Texas is trying to attach the virtuous "whistleblower" label to predators who'll file lawsuits against abortion providers and anyone who "aids or abets" a woman getting an abortion. As a journalist and activist, I've worked with a range of genuine whistleblowers during the last several decades. Coming from diverse backgrounds, they ended up tangling with institutions ranging from the Pentagon and CIA to the National Security Agency and the Veterans Administration. Their personalities and outlooks varied greatly, but none of them were bullies. None of them wanted to threaten or harm powerless people in distress. On the contrary, the point of the whistleblowing was to hold powerful institutions accountable for violations of human rights. What the Texas vigilantes will be seeking to do is quite the opposite. The targets will be women who want abortions as well as...
    UBER and Lyft have both said they will cover Texas drivers' legal fees if they are sued for taking women to abortion appointments under a new law. The two ride hailing apps announced the plans after the state introduced a law that bans most abortions and heralds the most restrictive measures in the US. 4Uber and Lyft said Friday they will cover the legal fees of any driver who is sued under the new law prohibiting most abortions in Texas 4Women protest against the six-week abortion ban at the Capitol in Austin, TexasCredit: AP It also gives citizens the right to file civil suits and collect damages against anyone aiding an abortion including those who transport women to clinics. Lyft said it has created a fund to cover 100 per cent of the legal fees for drivers sued under the law while driving on its platform. Calling the Texas law an attack on women's right to choose, Lyft also said it would donate $1 million to Planned Parenthood. 'RIGHT TO CHOOSE' In a statement the company said: "We want...
    Make no mistake, this is a foreign policy failure of historic proportions. After 20 years, more than two trillion dollars of investment, the grievous loss of 475 British forces, and more than 2,000 American soldiers and hundreds more of other nationalities, the best-equipped and best-trained forces that the West can assemble are being drummed out of Afghanistan by a Kalashnikov-toting militia. Did it have to end like this? Certainly, there is bound to be an intense debate about what went wrong as the public consciousness is indelibly imprinted with shocking images from Kabul airport. Some will argue that we stayed far too long, that we should have left immediately after the US-backed Northern Alliance deposed the Taliban government in November 2001. I disagree. Had we cut and run then, we would have left Afghanistan in chaos, with the country ruined and an interim government without funds or authority. Al Qaeda would have been back within months. Britain's former man in Washington Kim Darroch asks 'Did it have to end like this?' Pictured: The British parachute regiment After 20...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- 7 On Your Side revealed for the first time last night the Employment Development Department closed all of its unemployment offices - not just for the pandemic - but for good, 25 years ago. The staff was moved instead to call centers, taking claims and questions by phone. It was partly to keep them safe from disgruntled claimants, but more so to improve efficiency. So why isn't it a better system after all these years?RELATED: EDD offices have been closed to the public for over 25 years; here's whySo many things went wrong when claims poured in to the EDD at the start of the pandemic. Folks couldn't get work or get benefits. So they flooded the EDD's call center. It was instantly overwhelmed. Which has many wondering: after 25 years of providing service by phone, why isn't it a state-of-the-art system?Nearly two million calls per week poured in to the EDD call center at the height of the pandemic, but a state audit found fewer than one percent were getting through.RELATED: California unemployment crisis: 7...
    Andie MacDowell's managers didn't think it was time for the 63-year-old actress to rock gray hair, however, the "Groundhog" day star did it anyway. "During lockdown, I had a lot of downtime and became obsessed with Jack Martin, who did Jane Fonda's hair," MacDowell shared in an interview Wednesday with Vogue. "I shared those pictures with a lot of people going, 'Hey, I want to do this.' I got a job and very quickly I had to make up my mind about what I was going to do. My managers had actually said to me, 'It's not time.'" "I said, 'I think you're wrong, and I'm going to be more powerful if I embrace where I am right now. It's time because in two years I'm going to be 65. If I don't do it now, I won't have the chance to be salt and pepper. I always wanted to be salt and pepper!'" she added. MacDowell recently appeared with her long gray hair on the red carpet during the 74th annual Cannes Film Festival. ANDIE MACDOWELL TALKS EMBRACING HER GRAY HAIR:...
    Veteran and Florida Rep. Michael Waltz, R., expressed his satisfaction with House colleagues after they overwhelmingly voted to expedite the visa process for Afghan interpreters, telling "America's Newsroom" Friday there's not a more deserving group for merit-based visas than the Afghans who "fought, bled and died" with the U.S. during the conflict. REP. MICHAEL WALTZ: These are people that fought with us, bled with us, died with us, Bill. And we talk a lot about merit-based immigration in this country. I can't think of any group that's more deserving, that has earned it, that was literally willing to die alongside American soldiers. And when you contrast that with what's happening along our southern border, where hundreds of thousands are coming per month, that we know of, I think this is completely reasonable, the right thing to do. It's not just the right thing to do morally from a national security standpoint. If we have to go back, we have to send our soldiers back, which Biden's own intelligence community is saying Al-Qaeda and ISIS can come roaring back in the...
    (CNN)When Britney Spears asked a court this week to end her years-long conservatorship, she renewed attention on a little-understood section of US law.A convervatorship is a legal arrangement that gives a court-appointed individual, known as the conservator, the power to handle the financial and/or personal affairs of another adult who has been deemed incapacitated.There's been heightened interest in conservatorships since the February release of The New York Times documentary "Framing Britney Spears," which explores the singer's career and her court-ordered conservatorship, in place since 2008.Spears' statements at a court hearing on Wednesday about the arrangement and those serving as her conservators, including her father Jamie Spears, have prompted more questions. Spears pleaded with a judge to end the "abusive" arrangement, describing how she had been forced to perform, made to use birth control despite wanting a baby and put on lithium against her will, among other concerning details.Read MoreThough Spears' conservatorship is by far the most high-profile, an estimated 1.3 million adults in the US are under similarly restrictive arrangements, with guardians and conservators controlling at least $50 billion in...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) slammed President Biden's performance thus far, saying he is "failing" tests from U.S. adversaries. Scalise told Brian Kilmeade on ‘Fox & Friends’ that Biden is killing American jobs and handing them to countries like Russia.  SCALISE BLASTS BIDEN'S BORDER POLICIES, CALLING THEM ‘DANGEROUS FOR KIDS’ STEVE SCALISE: Regardless of the elections in 2022 or 2024, we've got to do what's right for the country. The policies right now are destroying the fabric of America. Look at our economy. You've got a lot of problems there. You've got inflation through the roof. Our adversaries, Russia, China, Iran, are all on the move. They're all testing President Biden right now. And frankly, President Biden is failing those tests.  Just look at the recent hacks. Look at what China is doing. He's trying to give away the intellectual property of the vaccine to China right now. So, I think in the end, what any president is judged on is their performance. And right now the performance has been very dismal. And for American jobs, Keystone's gone. President...
