    Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Wednesday declined to say whether he accepted as legitimate the verdict by a jury in New York finding that former President Trump sexually abused E. Jean Carroll in the mid-1990s and owes her $5 million in damages. “That’s about presidential politics and that will all be settled in the primaries next year,” McConnell said when asked about whether the jury’s verdict, which also found Trump liable for defaming Carroll by denying her claims of sexual abuse, was legitimate.

    Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that American need to make “serious change” in our gun laws because “we have some of the highest levels of gun violence.” Anchor Margaret Brennan asked, “I want to start on this issue. Our viewers remember, of course, that your wife, Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, was critically wounded in a shooting. You’ve made gun safety a primary issue. Your colleague said to me recently that someone is dying within the soul of this nation. Do you think America is numb to gun violence?”
  • Poll: Support for Traditional American Values, Patriotism Declines

    The percentage of Americans who say patriotism, religious faith, family, and other traditional American values are “very important” is on the decline, a Wall Street Journal-NORC poll found. Support for every traditional American value included in the poll has receded since 1998 besides “money,” which has grown in importance. The data also shows young people and Democrats tend not to highly rank traditional American values as much as older adults and Republicans.

    Seventy-two percent of American adults believe the nation is headed on the wrong track under President Joe Biden’s leadership, up four points since December, a Monmouth University poll found Tuesday. While Americans’ view of the nation has worsened since December, 22 percent of Americans say things in the nation are headed in the right direction, down from 28 percent in December. Since September 2021, the right direction number has fluctuated between ten and 31 percent. September of 2021 was the month of the deadly Afghan withdrawal that left the Taliban in control of the country.

    Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for Donald Trump, said Friday on MSNBC’s “All In” that he believed “America wants to see” former President Donald Trump indicted regardless of the crime. While discussing prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney’s office convening a grand jury as part of a criminal probe into a 2016 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels that Trump allegedly authorized, anchor Chris Hayes asked, “Given what has come out about what was happening in the Department of Justice behind the curtains at the time, give the fact that you went and pleaded to and did...

The White House will release state-by-state data for all 50 states about the impact of the package, pointing to jobs and small businesses created and the number of people who saved money on health insurance coverage, a White House official told The Hill.

    Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) failed to answer whether he still identifies as a Democrat on this week’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” Manchin said, “My main concern is how do we bring this country together? How do we make it work? How do we make Democrats, Republicans become Americans again and not just party affiliates? This is what’s happening right now. We’re pushing people further apart, making people take a side and rewarding for bad behavior.”

    Classified documents were being held at a residence where Hunter Biden would reportedly black out from drinking and drug use during a time when he was working with a Chinese businessman with intelligence connections. The president's son was staying at one of President Joe Biden's residences where classified documents were recently found. While there, during the worst of his alcoholism and drug addiction, Hunter Biden would be near classified documents while receiving millions of dollars from a top Chinese businessman connected to the Chinese Communist Party, according to author Michael Shellenberger. “There’s no evidence that Hunter Biden accessed the documents,...

    This weekend, I watched the breaking news reports from Southern California with a mixture of shock, disbelief and anger. On Saturday night, what had been a gathering to celebrate the Lunar New Year in a Los Angeles suburb became the scene of a massacre. By Sunday, President Biden had issued a statement, noting: “While there is still much we don’t know about the motive in this senseless attack, we do know that many families are grieving tonight, or praying that their loved one will recover from their wounds.” I am from Monterey Park, Calif. I am struggling to process a...

    Congressional Republicans think lining Zelenskyy’s army-green pockets with more U.S. tax dollars is a greater need than tackling any number of ongoing crises roiling the country right now. But even more telling—sickening?—was the image in the same photo of a House staffer wearing a black face mask standing silently, eyes cast downward, behind a tri-folded American flag in a shadow box as the celebration ensued. The unintentional contrast said it all. Our once-thriving and free country is slowly dying at the hands of frauds, crooks, and cowards—and they’re not even trying to hide it from us. They are flaunting it....

    The American people are being forced to pay billions across the country to build stadiums for the NFL to play in, despite the fact that the league is worth an estimated $132 billion as a whole. While it is difficult to put a firm price tag on the NFL, Sportico recently estimated that the average team is worth $4.14 billion, and the business and real estate holdings of the league as a whole are worth upwards of $132 billion.

The language guide, which was published Monday, aims to “eliminate many forms of harmful language, including racist, violent, and biased … language in Stanford websites and code.”

    The terrorist plot foiled by German security services makes abundantly clear that far-right extremism is not a uniquely American problem, but a pervasive threat to Western democracy. In a series of raids across Germany, 3,000 members of law enforcement apprehended 25 people suspected of plotting a coup. Eerily reminiscent of certain aspects of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. capitol, the plan called for storming the Bundestag (parliament), murdering the chancellor and seizing ministers. The plotters are associated with the Reichsbűrger movement, an anti-government group with approximately 21,000 followers that denies the legitimacy of the Bundesrepublik Deutschland (Federal Republic...

National security advisor Evelyn Farkas said, “I just wish people would allow the families to be happy. Obviously, the hostages have come home. And for the other family, you know, the Whelan family and many others, that we all rally around and try to help get them out.”

    Former president Donald Trump chided Jewish American Democrats who oppose him despite his support for Israel, and hailed the Jewish state as a “modern-day miracle.” Speaking at the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) 2022 Gala in New York City, Trump said, “The United States and Israel are not just allies on a military basis, but economically and politically; we’re allies morally, culturally and spiritually and we always will be — at least if I have anything to do about it.”
