    Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that former President Donald Trump is the most dangerous leader America has ever had. Discussing President Joe Biden’s speech on January 6, host Joy Reid asked, “Is there a way, Claire, in your view to even get people in this Republican cult to even listen to what he’s going to say?”
  • Former Republican Governor [Christine Todd Whitman (R-NJ)] Rips Trump, Says ‘It’s a Scary Time for Our Democracy’

    Former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R-NJ) said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump’s conditional endorsement in the Alaska gubernatorial race is a sign that the Republican Party is headed in a scary direction. Trump a day before endorsed Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R), but only on one condition: He must refuse to support Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in her reelection bid in 2022. Murkowski of course voted earlier this year to convict the former president on a charge of incitement of insurrection following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot. “Alaska needs Mike Dunleavy as Governor now more than ever,” Trump said...

    Former President Trump blasted Benjamin Netanyahu, accusing the former Israeli prime minister of disloyalty while using profanity to criticize the former ally for his congratulatory message to President Biden in the wake of the 2020 election results, according to an Axios report. Trump touted that he helped Netanyahu, now the opposition leader in Israel, in his own election efforts, reversed decades of U.S. policy in Israel's favor, and supported Israel's claim to land that was seized in war, while continuing to incorrectly claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him, reports The Associated Press. "The first person that...

Weiwei sat down for an interview Friday with PBS reporter Margaret Hoover on "Firing Line" to discuss authoritarianism in China. During the discussion, Hoover noted a quote from his book when he referenced former President Donald Trump.

    Alyssa Farah, an ex-aide to former President Trump, says she's deeply concerned about him potentially running in 2024, believing that, given a second term, he would undermine democracy and "weaponize" the government against his political opponents. CNN's Jake Tapper said in a recent interview with Farah, who served as a White House communications director and assistant to the president, that Trump "challenged our institutions near to the breaking point," asking if she believed that he would try to impose "some sort of autocracy" if he returned to the Oval Office. "I think he absolutely would," she replied. "There were things...

    Speaking during an interview with Fox News Monday afternoon, former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield said that more than 40 percent of people who have recently died from Wuhan coronavirus in Maryland were fully vaccinated. "A lot of times people may feel it's a rare event that fully vaccinated people die. I happen to be the senior advisor to Governor Hogan in the state of Maryland. In the last 6-8 weeks, more than 40 percent of people who died in Maryland were fully vaccinated," Redfield said, responding to the death of former Secretary of State Colin...

    Another shameful moment for Victoria Police caught on camera. On Saturday, police swarmed Princess Park in Carlton North, attempting to shut down a protest that never eventuated. Thousands of officers descended on the inner-city park confronting locals lawfully out enjoying the day. Sitting on a park bench with her husband drinking tea, one woman refusing to show ID police violently tackled to the ground. Mainstream media quickly photographed the woman as police had her pinned to the gravel, labelling her a protester. But none of them spoke to their alleged "protester". If they had, they'd know she was innocent.

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has delivered Articles of Impeachment of Donald J. Trump and the appointment of Impeachment Managers to the U.S. Senate on January 25. The Senate cannot legally hold a trial on impeachment of a President or other official who has already left office. As we will watch, the Senate has extensive, long-established procedures -- but only as its own rules. The Senate must convene the next day at 1:00 P.M. But the Senate typically schedules the actual trial for later. Chuck Schumer says the trial will start February 8. Senate rules require a trial, whereas...

    PARIS (Reuters) - French police protested in front of their stations on Monday after dozens of assailants in a Paris suburb attacked one base with metal bars and a barrage of fireworks over the weekend. Officers gathered outside the headquarters of Paris Police, holding banners that read "Police under attack, citizens in danger". In the low-income Champigny neighbourhood, where Saturday night's unrest occurred, police carried the slogan: "Your security has a price. We want protection and recognition." "I hear politicians say that the authority of the state must not be trampled. I totally agree with that. I would like to...

    A former President George W. Bush administration official blasted Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg over his lack of experience in national politics, which she argues makes him underqualified for the Oval Office. Sheila Bair, the former chairwoman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), said Democrats are “almost maniacal in their eagerness to oust” President Trump and in doing so are less focussed on the qualifications of their candidates. “Enter Pete Buttigieg, whose primary asset seems to be a thin résumé,”Bair wrote in an op-ed published Wednesday in The Washington Post.

    BEIJING (AP) — Chinese prosecutors have indicted the former top aide to ex-President Hu Jintao on charges of taking bribes, illegally obtaining state secrets and abuse of power, state media reported Friday, in the latest high-profile blow in President Xi Jinping's sweeping crackdown on corruption. State broadcaster CCTV said prosecutors in the northern port city of Tianjin have filed the charges against Ling Jihua, who once served as head of the Communist Party's General Office, a position comparable to the U.S. president's chief of staff. Ling was placed under investigation in late 2014 and was formally arrested in July 2015.

    SIERRA VISTA — The near-empty shell of the former Sierra Vista Regional Health Center is slowly giving way to demolition work as crews prepare the decades-old facility for its new life as Cochise College’s Downtown Center, set to open next year. When the facility was officially gifted to the college by the Legacy Foundation of Southeast Arizona earlier this year, it effectively expanded the square-footage of the college’s Sierra Vista Campus by 50 percent, with just over 90,000 square feet of additional space to house the college’s nursing and allied health programs, culinary arts program and more. “We’ve basically gutted...

    VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) — A California man once sentenced to death for killing two people in the 1960s was under arrest Thursday after police said he led officers to the body of his 89-year-old mother. -- SNIP -- The California Supreme Court reversed his death sentence in 1969 after finding 12 prospective jurors were dismissed because they said they opposed the death penalty. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled a year earlier that such jurors shouldn't be automatically excluded from a death penalty case unless they make clear they can't impose capital punishment under any circumstance. Stanworth was sentenced to death...

    In his re-election victory speech on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama referred to the United States as a singular “former colony,” when the United States was actually composed of 13 separate colonies prior to gaining independence from the British. “Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward,” said Obama, which was the first sentence of his remarks in Chicago, Ill. Before the United States won its independence from Great Britain with the Treaty of Paris in 1783,
