    A confused-looking President Biden paced back and forth behind King Abdullah II of Jordan Monday, apparently unsure of where to stand ahead of the royal’s remarks. “Your majesty, over to you,” Biden, 81, told the king after welcoming him to the White House. As Abdullah prepared to deliver his speech, the president shuffled around behind him and the podium, gazing down at the floor as if looking for a mark indicating the proper place for him to stand. Biden waffled between two different spots before settling on what was initially his first choice, to Abdullah’s left side and in front...

    Controversial Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King — who had claimed he aided in the release of two US citizens that were kidnapped by Hamas and has accused Israel of genocide — had his Instagram account blocked Monday. King, who has 6 million followers on the Meta-owned site, posted a video message through a friend’s Instagram account announcing he was deactivated by the social media platform. King condemned what he called “genocide” and “war crimes” committed by Israel in its military campaign in the Gaza Strip, which was launched in retaliation after Hamas terrorists killed approximately 1,200 Israelis and abducted...

  • Angus King: Rifles with Detachable Magazines Are ‘Useful only for Killing’

    On Thursday’s broadcast of “CNN This Morning,” Sen. Angus King (I-ME) said that gun control legislation he introduced is a new approach to “assault weapons” because it says “that a gun that operated as these weapons do, as any rifle does, cannot have a detachable magazine, and must have an internal magazine with no more than 10 bullets.” And “To me, this is purely consistent with banning machine guns 100 years ago or sawed-off shotguns. These are particularly dangerous, useful only for killing people, and we want to diminish that lethality.”

The Portland Press Herald noted that King is not ready to reveal details about his gun control bill, The Herald indicated King’s intention is to “ban the most dangerous and lethal aspects of military-style assault rifles.” King provided a clue into what these “aspects” of certain firearms might be when he spoke to KTLA and said, “I want to do what’ll work and to me, the most clear danger are these high...

    Author Stephen King railed against gun violence in the wake of Wednesday’s mass shooting in Maine, calling for people to “stop electing apologists for murder.” “It’s the rapid-fire killing machines, people,” King wrote in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter. “This is madness in the name of freedom. Stop electing apologists for murder.” At least 16 people were killed in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday in a mass shooting incident at two locations. Local authorities said the suspect remains at large and residents were instructed to shelter in place. Firearms instructor Robert Card, 40, has been named...

    Speculation continues to mount over the fate of American soldier Travis King after he fled into North Korean territory earlier this week — with the US revealing the hermit kingdom has gone silent about his well-being and fate. From being used as a propaganda tool to being propped up as a potential bargaining chip, the guesses about North Korea’s next steps vary widely given there’s little precedent for King’s situation, experts and former diplomats say. The 23-year-old, who is the first US soldier in decades to defect to North Korea, bolted across the border on Tuesday during a civilian tour...

    Burger King has estimated that the fast food giant will have to shutter up to 400 locations across the country this year. The iconic burger chain said that underperforming stores will be the first to go. Following the announcement of the company's first quarter results, CEO Joshua Kobza said the chain expects to shut between 300 and 400 locations in 2023. This is a historic high - the company usually closes a couple of hundred stores annually, Kobza said. According to its earnings release, Burger King axed 124 locations in the year up to March, leaving 6,964 restaurants. Not all...

    Women's tennis legend Billie Jean King was in Delray Beach, Florida, on Friday for the Billie Jean Cup qualifier, and discussed more than just the match. During a 30-minute press conference, the 79-year-old King criticized Florida’s "Parental Rights in Education" law, also known as the "Don’t Say Gay" law by its critics. The bill was signed into law in March 2022 by Gov. Ron DeSantis and bans teachers from giving classroom instruction on "sexual orientation" or "gender identity" in kindergarten through third grade.

    Stormy Daniels had been eagerly awaiting the unprecedented moment Donald Trump was “dethroned” when he was forced to go before a Manhattan judge and answer to criminal charges this week — but the porn star says the sight of the ex-prez sitting in court was just “anti-climactic.” Trump, 76, pleaded not guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday to 34 charges tied, in part, to a $130,000 hush-money payout made to Daniels in the lead-up to the 2016 election. “At first I thought I’d be really excited, you know, I thought when that date came because like I didn’t think...

    Memphis police officers beat motorist Tyre Nichols for three minutes, treating him like “a human piñata” in a “savage” encounter reminiscent of the infamous 1991 police beating of Los Angeles motorist Rodney King, attorneys for the family said Monday.

Another attorney, Antonio Romanucci, said that Nichols, who was Black,...

Martin Luther King III during an appearance on CNN critiqued restrictions that impede Americans from casting their ballots and said the country has work to do on shoring up voting legislation and making access to the polling place easier. “It’s going to be quite difficult for any of that to happen with this Republican-led Congress, but we have to keep exerting pressure on them. Nothing happened in the modern Civil Rights movement...

    I gotta ponder that for a moment...Jim Crow -gone. Segregation -gone. The civil rights movement has made tremendous gains in 50 years. I wonder what the statistics were in the late 60's concerning the USA black community? I'm not making accusations here...just pointing out the obvious. In 1968 was 13% of the population responsible for 50% of the murder? Were blacks killing other blacks in significantly higher rates than any other race was killing each other? Was the single motherhood rate in the black community 80%? -no it was 20%. What would Martin Luther King Jr. say about the black-on-black...

    Sen. Angus King (I-ME) says Congress ought to pass a legislative package that expands legal immigration levels to fill unfilled United States jobs with foreign workers rather than pulling jobless Americans off the labor market sidelines.
