    CHINA is convinced it now needs hit America "hard and early " in a surprise Pearl Harbor-style attack to invade Taiwan, a leading expert has said.

    Comic and pundit Bill Maher claimed that while Trump’s fans would cry “MAGA tears if their boy is in jail,” Republicans secretly “would fucking love it.” On Friday night’s edition of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the host talked with guests Sam Stein and John McWhorter about the prospect of Attorney General Merrick Garland successfully prosecuting Trump and putting him in jail. Maher and Stein posited an imprisoned Trump as a win-win for Republicans, who could simultaneously get Trump “out of the way” and raise money by using the “persecution” as a rallying point: BILL MAHER: Merrick Garland has a big decision here as the attorney general of the United States, whether to call a grand jury. I just, I get the argument. Why not to. Because they’re going to be crying their MAGA tears if their boy is in jail. Let me ask you this.

    Someone, somewhere out there could be the winner of one of the biggest Mega Millions jackpot ever — a whopping more than $1.2 billion. The odds of winning are too painstakingly small that personally, “I’m not going to play,” said J.P. Morgan, a statistics expert at Virginia Tech University. But while he said you should not get your hopes up, it might not hurt to play your lucky numbers, should you want to blow a couple of bucks on a ticket or two. While your chances of winning are only 1 in about 302 million, the winning numbers are out there. “Millions of people play over and over. Eventually someone will have to win,” Morgan said.

    Late last year, Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) bucked the overwhelming bulk of the Democratic Party and voted against the bipartisan infrastructure deal in protest to Democrats not passing the Build Back Better Act first. The proposals included in what was set to be Democrats’ signature social spending bill meant that much to him—and they still do. Yet after news on Wednesday that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) agreed to a new version of the defunct Build Back Better bill, now called the Inflation Reduction Act, which lacks scores of the policies progressives originally fought for, Bowman said he was “glad we finally got to this point.” To be sure, the congressman said he was “very disappointed and actually pretty angry” about all of the things that didn’t make it in the bill: Paid family leave, free community college, a permanent child tax credit and more but time was running short. Now, with just few months left before the midterm elections and a political environment that still looks pretty bleak for Democrats, progressives like Bowman seem laser focused on simply passing something...
    JetBlue Airlines and Spirit Airlines are seen on the departure board in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on May 16, 2022 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.Joe Raedle | Getty Images JetBlue Airways finally won over Spirit Airlines with a $3.8 billion takeover deal. Now it needs to win over antitrust regulators. The New York-based airline snatched Spirit away Frontier Airlines with an all-cash offer that torpedoed the cash-and-stock deal the two discount airlines had forged earlier this year. Hours after Spirit and Frontier said they terminated their merger agreement, which lacked shareholder support, Spirit said it agreed to sell itself to JetBlue. JetBlue said it expects to win regulatory approval in the fourth quarter of next year or the first three months of 2024. The carriers expect the deal to close in the first half of 2024. If regulators sign off, it would mean the end Spirit, a brand that has become a punchline about the indignities of discount air travel, where passengers trade creature comforts like standard legroom, snacks and free cabin baggage for a cheap fare.

    CNN commentator and Republican consultant Scott Jennings predicted former President Donald Trump will launch a 2024 presidential bid early to thwart a potential run by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL). Jennings joined CNN Tonight with host Kasie Hunt and said he believes the political winds are at the back of Florida’s governor. Given his popularity with conservatives across the country, Jennings said he believes DeSantis is a Trump-like figure who lacks “baggage.” He said, I definitely think there are a lot of Republicans out there who voted for Donald Trump twice, maybe gave him money, wanted to see him succeed who know we cannot drag the country and the party through this again in 2024, that he’s the least likely Republican to have a chance to win the White House.

    The last time Allie Quigley participated in the 3-point contest, she was booed. It wasn’t because of a poor performance last year. Quite the opposite. It was because she went in front of a raucous crowd at Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas after winning the competition and declared she wasn’t going to compete in another 3-point exhibition. A year later, Quigley is already lifting her self-imposed embargo. The three-time All-Star said before the Sky’s 81-78 road loss to the Minnesota Lynx on Wednesday that she would compete in this year’s contest, which will take place Saturday at McCormick Place’s practice court. “Everybody was talking to me nonstop about it,” Quigley said after the game. “I didn’t want to let the city down or my family and friends down.

    In the last four U.S. Senate elections in North Carolina, Democrats have come up short. But in 2022, Democrats swear things are going to be different. Party leaders and strategists say they’ve got a winning candidate in Cheri Beasley, the former chief justice of the state Supreme Court. She won 81 percent of the vote in the state primary, and, if elected, she would be only the third Black woman to ever serve in the Senate. “When you have historic candidacies, you end up in a place where voters turn up in higher levels than they traditionally do,” said Morgan Jackson, a North Carolina Democratic strategist. Where Democratic strategists feel they have a strong candidate in Beasley, they also believe they have a weak candidate in the Republican nominee: Rep. Ted Budd, a third-term congressman who cruised to victory in the primary after winning former President Donald Trump’s endorsement. Budd was one of the 147 members to vote against certifying the 2020 election results, and on top of being a member of the far-right House Freedom Caucus, he’s backed by...

    CAMERON NORRIE became the first Brit through at Wimbledon with a straight sets win over Pablo Andujar. The in-form British No1 was farmed out to Court No2 to face the 36-year-old Spaniard but put on a rain-interrupted show nonetheless. 1Cameron Norrie won his match against Pablo Andujar in straight sets - but it took five hours due to the rain delaysCredit: Reuters The weather delays meant the match took five hours and ten minutes to complete.  Nervy Norrie also needed four match points before finally getting over the line - taking just four minutes after the second interruption to claim victory. He said: “It was not easy. I saw the dark clouds coming and then I heard someone shout ‘get it done before the rain starts'. “I was trying to.

    Virginia GOP Gov. Glenn Youngkin told Breitbart News exclusively that “getting it done” and putting wins on the scoreboard are the core ethos of his administration five months in. “It’s all about results,” Youngkin told Breitbart News in a phone interview. “People make a lot of promises, and I’m maniacally focused and our administration is maniacally focused on delivering results. When I make a promise to somebody and our administration makes a promise to somebody, we’re going to work to deliver. I think we’re reestablishing trust in government in Virginia. It’s more than just a bunch of empty promises. It is proven results. That’s what I’m most proud of in this first five months. “We talked about empowering parents, and we have. We talked about cutting taxes, and we have—$4 billion. We talked about backing the blue and standing up for law enforcement, and we are. We talked about making education a primary focus to reestablish excellence in our schools and we are so delivering on that front. Finally, that we can grow jobs, and we can make Virginia, which...
    Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville, Georgia, will pay $800,000 to settle a free speech lawsuit filed by a Christian student it had censored, according to Alliance Defending Freedom. Georgia Gwinnett College is now paying the price after campus police stopped Christian student Chike Uzuegbunam from speaking about his faith or distributing Christian literature on campus in 2016, Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) announced on Wednesday. A convert to Christianity, Chike Uzuegbunam was peacefully sharing the gospel with fellow students on Georgia Gwinnett College campus in 2016 when campus police stopped him and told him he needed to make an advance reservation to speak in one of two tiny campus “speech zones” that were only open a few hours a week. (Screenshot) College officials had repeatedly stopped Uzuegbunam from peacefully sharing his Christian faith with his fellow students on campus, and told the student that he needed to make an advance reservation to speak in one of two tiny campus “speech zones” that were only open a few hours per week. A second Christian student, Joseph Bradford, decided not to speak about religion because of what happened to Uzuegbunam. Both Uzuegbunam...
    BOSTON — A champagne-drenched Andrew Wiggins proudly held up his Canadian flag for the cameras before taking a seat at the podium to try to articulate just how incredible it is to finally be an NBA champion. “Man, it feels good, it feels amazing,” a smiling Wiggins said after the Warriors 103-90 win over the Celtics to take the NBA Finals series in six games. “You put in so much work, so much time, to make it here, and the end result is becoming a champion. So, there’s nothing like it. So now I’m going to celebrate like crazy.” Wiggins had long been categorized as an underperforming former top pick. But Wiggins finally proved the skeptics wrong after finding a perfect situation with the Warriors, where he’s thrived as a role player. So how does it feel to prove those doubters wrong once and for all? “Man, it’s a feeling I can’t describe,” he said. “Every day, that stuff is motivating. It put fire in my eyes and I just wanted to prove everyone wrong. Now I’m a world champion....
    ANTHONY JOSHUA deployed the "totally wrong" tactics against Oleksandr Usyk - but his new coach is confident in their devised game plan. AJ was comfortably outclassed by Usyk, who inherited the WBA, IBF and WBO belts, last September over 12 rounds. 2Anthony Joshua was beaten by Oleksandr Usyk in SeptemberCredit: Rex But he has since switched up his training team and brought in esteemed US mastermind Robert Garcia. And the former world champion, known for his tactical awareness, admitted mistakes were made the first time around. Garcia told iFL TV: "When you have somebody that's a lot smaller than you and you have the weight, height, reach and power advantages then take advantage of that.

    Golden State Warrior fans — and count us as loyal followers — are hoping that the team can find a way to capture their fourth championship in eight years in Boston on Thursday or on their home floor on Father’s Day. But win or lose, let’s celebrate the fact that these Warriors are one of the most entertaining teams in NBA history with compelling story lines up and down their roster. It isn’t every day that you get to watch the best shooter in basketball history in the prime of his career. Star athletes who double as role models — both on and off the court — are in short supply these days, but Stephen Curry is just that. Game after game, overcoming injury after injury, Curry is driven to succeed and to help his team succeed. Ditto for his Splash Brother, Klay Thompson, who was already in competition for most-beloved Warrior during the team’s championship runs of 2015, 2017 and 2018. But Thompson tore his ACL during the 2019 NBA finals against Toronto. And then he ruptured his Achilles...
    After seven months of play, the Warriors entered the NBA Finals thinking they had finally figured out their rotations. They thought wrong. Since the Finals started, Golden State has mixed and matched personnel like it was a November Sunday and everyone was watching football instead of their game. The starting lineup has changed, Andre Iguodala has gone from regular minutes to injuries, to spot minutes, to regular minutes again. Draymond Green was benched at one point, and Nemanja Bjelica has become a trusted player after not playing in Game 1. All this tinkering hasn’t been in vain, though. The Warriors have found a new spine of Steph Curry, Andrew Wiggins, and Kevon Looney. They might have found their best lineup in Game 5, too. It’s one that could seal the series for Golden State if used again in Game 6 Thursday night in Boston. And this lineup is anything but conventional. Without all this Finals experimentation, would Warriors coach Steve Kerr have decided that Gary Payton II, all 6-foot-3 of him, should see minutes at...
    The series won’t end until Thursday, or maybe Sunday. A champion will be crowned, an NBA Finals MVP trophy will be hoisted, one side will spray a few gallons of champagne and the other side will head out into a summer of lament. The winner: Still to be determined. But this much is already clear: Even without a single game decided by single digits through the first five contests, these 2022 NBA Finals are on the brink of going down as a classic. It’s Golden State 3, Boston 2 going into Game 6 on the Celtics’ home floor on Thursday night. The Warriors grabbed the lead in the series with a 104-94 win on Monday in San Francisco, the latest entry on a long list of gut-check moments in this series and the first time either of these teams found a way to win consecutive games in this matchup. “It feels good,” Golden State’s Klay Thompson said. “But we haven’t done anything yet.” It looked easy early for his team in Game 5, with the Warriors up 16 before long...
    Tim Teeman: Well, here we are, my friend: the 75th Tony Awards this Sunday night (8 p.m. ET on CBS), the first proper one celebrating Broadway’s return after two-plus years of pandemic, and categories stuffed with competition. First of all, how was it for you generally? I enjoyed being back in the theater hugely, from those first, tentative nervous performances of how-will-this work, and will people be OK with all the vaccine and mask requirements? And now, it’s not unusual at all to see the signs asking for that, the mask-patrollers during performances... the show went on. Kevin Fallon: A little treat for the readers, just because I find it so adorable: The very last production we saw pre-pandemic was a preview of SIX: The Musical, I believe the day before Broadway shut down. We loved it. What a source of joy at the height of paranoia and panic and all of the horribleness that was to come. And then the first show we saw together once theaters reopened was Six again. It was perhaps even more euphoric, given the...
    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Lightning know what type of effort it will take to finish off the New York Rangers. The two-time defending champions are one win away from a third straight trip to the Stanley Cup Final, where they would continue their bid to become the first team in 40 years to win three consecutive NHL titles. The Rangers, down 3-2 to the Lightning in the Eastern Conference final, have been especially resilient this postseason. In addition to overcoming a 3-2 playoff series deficit to eliminate the Pittsburgh Penguins in the opening round, New York rebounded from losing the first two games to Carolina in the second round to oust the Hurricanes in seven games. Game 6 of the East final is Saturday night at Amalie Arena. The Lightning won Games 3 and 4 on home after dropping the first two on the road. “We’ve been down 3-2 every series so far, so we’re going to have to have a level of desperation,” Rangers forward Andrew Copp said. “The confidence of doing it before is bigger...
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats have 'absolutely no intention' of losing the House despite historic norms and dire polls suggesting otherwise and acquiesced that she would accept a more narrow gun control package from the Senate.  In a wide-ranging briefing, the speaker proclaimed: 'We have absolutely no intention of losing the House.'  As the party in the White House, the historical odds are not in the favor of Democrats, not to mention inflation and gas prices have dragged on Democrats' poll numbers.  Republicans need a net gain of just five seats to take back the majority, and the Cook Report rates 26 Democratic-held seats as toss-up or leaning Republican. By contrast only nine Republican-held seats have been rated as toss-ups or leaning Democrat.  In the 'blue wave' of 2018, when a Republican held the presidency, Democrats picked up a whopping 41 seats. By 2020, Republicans had taken back 15, and have high hopes of a 'red wave' for 2022. the Biden economy, according to a recent poll.  Meanwhile, more than 8 in 10 Americans are not happy with the Biden economy,...
    With Vladimir Putin’s bloody war in Ukraine crossing the 100-day mark, the Kremlin seems to be abandoning any pretense of diplomacy. There are several reasons Moscow aborted its initial half-hearted attempts to negotiate with Ukraine, including tangible gains on the battlefront and Western media’s waning attention span. But if Russian state TV is any indication, another reason Putin’s regime is now rejecting the idea of a diplomatic resolution has to do with the approaching midterm elections in the United States. During the latest broadcast of state TV show Sunday Evening With Vladimir Solovyov, participants discussed the price Russia would ultimately have to pay for its intended conquest of Ukraine. Across various state media outlets, the U.S. midterm elections have been mentioned as a potential saving grace that could halt American support of Ukraine and loosen the screws of sanctions against Russia. During Solovyov’s show, Andrey Sidorov, deputy dean of world politics at Moscow State University, asked: “Are we going to count on their electoral issues? Will anything change if Republicans prevail in November in the United States?” The host, Vladimir...
