    Mensa poster boys Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at a rally in Sunrise, Florida, last fall. Donald Trump has changed his tune about mail-in voting in one state and one state only: Florida. "Nevada has ZERO infrastructure for Mail-In Voting. It will be a corrupt disaster if not ended by the Courts," Trump tweeted Tuesday. On the other hand, "Florida has built a great infrastructure, over years, with two great Republican Governors. Florida, send in your Ballots!" Huh. Nevada mail-in voting = Corrupt disaster. Florida mail-in voting = Great! What could possibly be going on here? Oh, look at that—the Real Clear Politics average presently puts Joe Biden at a six-point advantage, with recent polling showing the race...

    On Wednesday morning, Republicans are in the second day of a full-on blitz attempting to sell the idea that hydroxychloroquine is effective as a treatment against COVID-19. That effort comes in the form of not just statements from Donald Trump, but supporting tweets and emails from Republican candidates and a full-court press from Fox News. At first, the idea that the GOP is latching onto claims from a doctor who believes medicines come from alien DNA to justify renewed support for a drug proven ineffective months ago seems baffling. Even if everyone from Ron DeSantis to Peter Navarro has joined in buying hundreds of millions of pointless doses, and they have, the billions wasted on the drug hardly seem to justify a second round...

    The shark that killed a former New York City woman off the coast of Maine was a great white — and it’s still out there, officials said Tuesday. Victim Julie Dimperio Holowach, 63, was swimming with her daughter about 20 yards off Bailey Island when she was attacked by the beast — which left behind a fragment of tooth that allowed scientists to identify it as a great white, Maine officials said. A pair of kayakers and her daughter were able to bring her to shore, but Holowach was dead by the time paramedics arrived, authorities said. The victim was dressed in a wet suit and was likely mistaken for a seal, Maine officials said at a press conference Tuesday....

    Countless polls have shown President Donald Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden, often by double digits. At the same time, many of the polls reflect a pessimistic mood among U.S. voters as the country continues to be battered by the coronavirus pandemic and double-digit unemployment — a plausible reason for an incumbent performing poorly in his re-election. Conservative journalist Jennifer Rubin pointed to that mood of pessimism in her Washington Post column, arguing that Trump is badly out of touch with U.S. voters. In the column — which is headlined “Voters, Even Republicans, Are Down in the Dumps” — Rubin notes that Trump showed how out of touch he is when, on Wednesday, he told Fox Business, “I think...

    Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX) expressed dismay and frustration at the news that the purported Russia-Taliban bounty killings program was included in the Presidential Daily Brief months ago but was never verbally briefed to President Donald Trump. Speaking with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Hurd reacted a breaking news report from that network’s Pentagon correspondent, Barbara Starr, that intelligence officials failed to orally discuss the bounty killings program with Trump, even though it was added to the PDB book that is circulated to all top cabinet officials, including the president. It’s well known that Trump skips out on reading the PDB and instead prefers to a short verbal summary of its highlights. “So you understand this in a way that pretty much...

You can go swimming, eat ice cream, do all of that fun summer stuff, but at the end of the day, you need to stay hydrated, and there’s nothing like drinking a cold glass of water or just chewing on some frozen ice cubes to cool off But with that said, there is no worse feeling than being parched, walking up to the freezer, and realizing you are out of ice. Thankfully, ice makers exist. They’re small, portable, and can produce ice in about eight minutes.

    If Colin Kaepernick is really getting the kind of interest previous reports claimed he is, the teams who have been thinking about signing him, they reportedly haven’t reached out to any of his people. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported on Friday that his sources told him that no team has offered the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback a tryout. In fact, the analyst said no one has even reached out to Kaepernick to gauge interest or any of the other things they might do if they were really interested in signing him. Florio said it’s possible teams are as interested as rumors said they were. In those previous reports, there was a supposed caveat in that interest. The...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Nobody is expecting Jarrett Stidham to step into the starting quarterback role in New England and perform like Tom Brady in his prime. But what exactly should fans expect out of Stidham? To help answer that question, retired offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia offered up his scouting report on Stidham in an interview on Sirius XM. It wasn’t a negative review by any means, and Scarencchia was quick to pount out Stidham’s strengths. But there also wasn’t a whole lot of substance to inspire a tremendous level of confidence in the second-year QB out of Auburn. “This is a different guy in a couple of ways, all right?” Scarnecchia said of Stidham compared to Brady. “Number one, he doesn’t...

    Tapping home equity is typically done through a cash-out refinance or a HELOC. (Photo by Melanie Stetson Freeman/The Christian Science Monitor via Getty Images) More homeowners are considering tapping home equity, either out of need or as a hedge against potential need, amid the economic uncertainty that the coronavirus pandemic has caused for millions of U.S. households. For homeowners with equity to tap, there are two basic ways — a cash-out refinance or a Home Equity Line of Credit. Both earned a bad reputation leading up to the housing collapse and financial crisis a little over a decade ago, but both are good personal finance options for responsible borrowers. A cash-out refinance gets the borrower an up-front pile of cash,...

Rhiannon Menn said she was feeling pretty helpless and unsure of how to help, so she decided to make a few extra lasagnas to pass out to struggling families.

    A year ago, 160 members of the Lesbian & Gay Big Apple Corps (LGBAC), New York’s oldest LGBTQ marching band, eagerly waited at the start line of the World Pride 50 parade in New York. Neil Patrick Harris climbed a nearby float and waved his hands, conducting the starstruck band below. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio strode by, lifting a rainbow flag high above his head. Hundreds of pink T-Mobile balloons peppered the band’s starting pen. The day’s visual—five million global partygoers converging on parking lot’s worth of Manhattan asphalt—is now unimaginable.

The Los Angeles Lakers have not officially been able to get together as a team for practices or scrimmages since the NBA season was put on hold back in March. However, there are rumors swirling that the team has been holding “secret” scrimmages at a well-known facility in NBA circles. The Lakers opened their practice facility in May, but still had strict guidelines on what could be done with social distancing. “It’s been pretty minimal as far as the number of bodies in the facility. They try to keep as many people away as they can at a time just so there’s less chance of catching anything, spreading anything, bringing anything...

It's useful year-round, whether you’re gathering around for warmth during the winter or toasting some marshmallows in the summer.

    Chinese airlines have suspended two-thirds of flights out of Beijing amid a fresh spike in coronavirus cases there and warnings that infections could rise just as the country's domestic travel market was making a strong recovery. As of Wednesday morning, more than 1,200 flights out of the Chinese capital were canceled at the city's two airports, amounting to nearly 70 percent of all scheduled trips, the state-run People's Daily reported. That number is expected to grow. Many of the flights were destined for the cities Guangzhou, Qingdao, Shanghai and others across the country. Beijing reported 31 new COVID-19 cases Wednesday, and officials warned residents not to leave the city over fears of a possible second wave of infections. Chinese authorities had largely gotten...
    Sen. Tom Cotton alleged that Twitter almost locked him out of his account for using an old-timey phrase that the tech company's staff thought was a call for violence.  Cotton detailed the odd saga in an op-ed Wednesday on Fox News Channel's website.   On the morning of June 1, after Black Lives Matter protests had turned into a looting and destruction-spree in a number of American cities, Cotton suggested that active-duty troops be called in, adding, 'No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters and looters.'  Sen. Tom Cotton wrote an op-ed posted on the Fox News Channel website that detailed how Twitter tried to freeze him out of his account over a tweet they thought was a call to violence...
    Former NYPD detective Harry Houck called on New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea to resign Monday, hours after Shea announced that he was scrapping the department's plainclothes anti-crime unit. "I tell you, the plainclothes officers that are out there, the anti-crime units, are out there in plain clothes trying to watch criminals and catch them in the act," Houck said on "The Story with Martha MacCallum." "Now, you [have] the perpetrators out there in the street saying, 'Hey, listen, we don't have to worry about undercover officers any more. We only have to worry about uniforms. So we see no uniforms. There's no cops around.' And believe me, they will take advantage of that." DEM CONGRESSMAN LIKENS CHICAGO POLICE UNION TO KKK:...
    The PGA Tour spent two months learning about the COVID-19 pandemic and trying to develop a safe plan to return, followed by another month hoping for the best. Commissioner Jay Monahan said his confidence in the plan came with a dose of uncertainty.

    The Eagles might have the best defensive tackle rotation in football. The interior line is the stuff of nightmares. The addition of Javon Hargrave in the offseason only strengthened an already freakish collection of talent, including Fletcher Cox, Malik Jackson and Hassan Ridgeway. Yes, the latter player may not inspire the same amount of fear as the other three but remember the name. The 25-year-old is out to prove he belongs in the conversation. And he believes that Philadelphia owns the best defensive line in the NFL. “This interior is probably, man, as they say every year, probably one of the best that’s out there if everybody can stay healthy,” Ridgeway told reporters in April. “You got a lot of...
    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told "The Ingraham Angle" Friday that the time is right for President Trump to resume his signature campaign rallies, with the first one scheduled for Saturday, June 20 in Tulsa, Okla. "I have been advising the president for some time to get back out there and thank the American people for the enormous sacrifices that they have made in order to flatten the curve on this virus," Christie told host Laura Ingraham. "Now he needs to thank them and encourage them to go back to work." Ingraham noted the criticism of the president for holding a rally in a large indoor space, even as health officials express anxiety about an apparent spike in the number of coronavirus cases in more...
    Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says he's sorry for taking part in President Donald Trump's photo-op at St. John's Church on June 1. Trump and members of his administration faced criticism after walking from the White House to St. John's Church to pose for a photo. Controversy erupted when, prior to the president's appearance, law enforcement used crowd-dispersing tactics to clear out protesters. What are the details? In a video for the National Defense University's commencement ceremony, Milley said, "As senior leaders, everything you do will be closely watched. And I am not immune. As many of you saw, the result of the photograph of me at Lafayette Square last...

    President Donald Trump’s response to nationwide protests against the police killing of George Floyd and the growing calls for racial justice have left him “profoundly weakened,” “politically isolated,” and have created tremendous fear within the Republican Party. Recent polling shows Trump losing to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, in some cases by double digits, triggering “deep distress within the GOP about the incumbent’s judgment and instincts” and “fears that voters could sweep the party out of power completely on Election Day,” write Washington Post White House bureau chief Philip Rucker and national political reporter Robert Costa. But Republican lawmakers still see themselves as tied to the President, regardless of the outcome. There “is no sign yet of a mass exodus from the runaway Trump...
    Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said Sunday that while violent protests in the wake of George Floyd's death are "diminishing" and "subsiding," he remains concerned about those who he says have taken advantage of the demonstrations to carry out their own agendas. Wolf echoed statements from Attorney General Bill Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray last week, in which they described evidence that extremist groups -- including Antifa and foreign actors -- were using the unrest to stoke criminal activity. BARR: EVIDENCE SHOWS FOREIGN ACTORS, ANTIFA TRYING TO 'HIJACK' GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS “I think what we’ve seen over the past week is we’ve seen a number of violent protesters infiltrating and hijacking peaceful protesters out there exercising their First...
    NEW YORK (AP) — On a late Friday afternoon, there is joy and fraternity found on a blocked-off street in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Neighbors chat, dogs get acquainted and above all, there’s laughter. After three months of sheltering-in-place, this scene of normalcy is still not commonplace as New York City tests the waters of socializing, within the prescribed limits. Steve Grillo lives on the street and is a walking advertisement touting his West Side community. “Everybody’s a good person,” he says. After his longtime role as an intern on the Howard Stern Show, Grillo co-owned a pizzeria there in 2009 and “that’s when I fell in love with the neighborhood.” There was no hanging out with friends on...

Age, at least 19. “She came to me in 2002 with that name, and it fit her.

    Like the rest of the nation, I was deeply disturbed by the video that captured George Floyd’s final moments. It was a terrible thing that happened. Those responsible will be held accountable based on the facts presented through a criminal justice system that is one of the best in the world. Like the rest of the nation, I have been watching television and seeing what this country is going through since that day in Minneapolis. Many people in America are making their voices heard by peaceful protests and demanding attention and change. That is just one of the things that make this country one of the greatest in the world.  However, when peaceful protests turn violent the message is lost. When...
    Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Tuesday that Joe Biden's remarks in response to repeated rioting and looting in cities across America as "absolutely boilerplate" commentary on "grievance politics" slightly disguised by "well-done rhetoric." "We certainly don't have the Democratic Party we used to know," Hume told host Tucker Carlson. "It has moved ever farther to the left. Now, it is truly out there where the buses don't run, with prominent Democratic Party spokespeople saying the things they are saying, siding as they clearly have, with the protesters -- even those violent and looting. "Joe Biden's speech today was a perfect example." Hume said Biden's speech appeared to pretend that the 1960s struggle for civil rights had never happened. Video"You would never know, listening to Biden speak...

    Former New York Police commissioner Bernard Kerik called on political leaders Saturday to "deescalate" the riots that have rocked the nation in the wake of George Floyd's death and advised parents to get their children away from the violence "I'd like to see the political leaders of these cities and these states get out there, deescalate some of the violence and some of the nastiness of the protesters," Kerik told Bill Hemmer on a special edition of "America's News HQ."
