The troops also include active-duty personnel trained in “extraction and decontamination operations” following attacks with chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological and explosive weapons, the Department of Defense said Monday.

    Following last week’s vote by the Maricopa County GOP in Arizona to censure Cindy McCain, widow of the late senator John McCain, the state Republican party is considering a similar measure. The state party vote is expected to take place on January 23rd. The Maricopa County censure railed against Mrs. McCain as a “troubled individual, with a past riddled with drug abuse and illegalities associated with such behavior.” The measure also notes that McCain has supported “leftist causes” including gay marriage, big government, and “others that run counter to Republican values.” Well, that and going well out of her way...

    Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has reportedly sued the federal government for $250,000 over his treatment at a Colorado prison where he is currently serving a life sentence. The lawsuit specifically cites in part the allegation that prison guards took his hat and bandana away while restricting his use of showers, something Tsarnaev asserts is contributing to his anxiety. The Boston Herald reports that Tsarnaev “specifically cites the confiscation of his white baseball cap and bandana that he purchased at the prison commissary and not being able to take more showers.” The report notes that Tsarnaev claims “the harsh treatment...

    Major League Baseball (MLB) has decided to suspend all political donations in the wake of last week’s riots at the U.S. Capitol, the Associated Press reports. The move comes as several corporations have suspended contributions who voted to decertify the elections. “In light of the unprecedented events last week at the U.S. Capitol, MLB is suspending contributions from its Political Action Committee pending a review of our political contribution policy going forward,” the league told The Associated Press on Wednesday. Other major U.S. sports leagues could soon follow suit. The National Football League announced that it is evaluating its political...

    Republicans are fighting constant battles with the media over policies, total slander from the media, and other politically charged issues. Democrats like Kamala Harris, in this case, wage wars with the media over the wrong cover photo of a magazine. According to the New York Times, Kamala Harris and her team are extremely upset after Vogue Magazine decided to use a “disrespectful” photo of Harris as their cover photo which was allegedly not agreed upon. “February’s issue features Ms. Harris in a dark jacket by Donald Deal, skinny pants, Converse, and her trademark pearls. She stands against a leaf green...

    The New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has been a close friend of President Donald Trump for many years. He has even visited him at the White House multiple times over the past four years. That’s why it had to have come as a shock to Trump that Belichick snubbed him by turning down the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

    A yoga studio in Washington state is staying open amid state shutdown orders after its founder claimed it has a religious exemption. In a Tuesday appearance on "Fox & Friends First," Hauteyoga founder Leah Zaccaria said she believes yoga should not be considered a physical fitness center or gym. Zaccaria told the show she has not officially "proclaimed myself a church or a religious organization" in the eyes of the law, but believes the exemption applies to yoga because it is a "spiritual practice" that includes "mind, body, and spirit." "It is more than a fitness practice," she said on...

    Two House members nearly came to blows and had to be separated by a Capitol staffer after several lawmakers had preached about coming together as Americans. The wild scene took place as lawmakers debated certifying the Electoral votes from Pennsylvania. An altercation reportedly took place between Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) and Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX), though what prompted it remains unclear. Reporters in attendance, according to Fox News, suggest Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb’s characterization of the violence earlier in the day may have prompted the scuffle. “It didn’t materialize out of nowhere,” Lamb said of the violence. “It was...

    Supporters of President Trump confronted Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) as he sat quietly at an airport waiting area, with some chanting “traitor” on the airplane toward the former presidential candidate. Video posted to social media shows a woman approaching Romney who is sitting by himself, demanding to know why he, like she, is not supporting the President. “Why aren’t you supporting President Trump? You’re not supporting him,” she demands. “I do support President Trump,” Romney replied. “I’m sorry, I do agree with many of the things he’s for and I support him.” But when it comes to contesting the election...

    A North Dakota man has been charged with burglary and terrorizing after he reacted angrily to a former employer's Facebook snub. Caleb Burczyk, 29, of Williston, appeared in court last week and pleaded not guilty to two charges following the incident in December. Per the Duluth News Tribune, Burczyk started sending his former boss threatening Facebook messages on Christmas Eve after the boss failed to respond to his Facebook friend request. Among the messages he sent was: "Accept my friend request or I'm going to murder you." Then, on Dec. 26, Burczyk kicked in the front door of the home...

    Nine months into the coronavirus pandemic and people are still throwing tantrums about wearing masks in public places. Last Thursday, a passenger on a Frontier Airlines flight from Cincinnati to Tampa had such a tantrum, Fox News first reported. Videos taken by a friend of Fox producer Griffin Frank shows a little of the action. The journalist tweeted the footage the next day, starting with the flight attendant politely asking a woman in a window seat to put on a mask. “Ma’am, you need to have a mask on,” says the airline employee, adding that one was provided on board....

    Rep. Kathleen Rice has secured a seat on the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, beating out colleague Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) in a secret ballot vote. Politico reported last week that both Rice and Ocasio-Cortez were waging a battle to secure the seat “with both touting the support of the New York delegation, circulating separate letters with their home state’s endorsement.” Confidence was exuding from AOC as she discussed the contest, noting she was the candidate with the state’s backing. “I’m the only member to have the full region’s endorsement for New York state,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. “She (Rice) has a...

    A pair of Minneapolis City Council members are claiming “defund the police” was never part of their planned “framework,” just days after a vote to slash nearly $8 million from the department’s budget while homicide rates have soared in the city. In an interview with KSTP Eyewitness News, Steve Fletcher and Phillipe Cunningham both concurred that the plan was never about defunding the police and implied the department was simply a casualty of unavoidable budgeting issues. “‘Defund’ is not the framework the council has ever chosen,” Fletcher claimed. Cunningham, according to the network, “audibly agreed.” Fletcher continued, “If we’re going...

    There’s good and bad when a politician builds a reputation for bucking the system, breaking protocols, and doing essentially whatever they want. Party leadership usually doesn’t reward rabble-rousers, as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez learned today.In her efforts to move up in party hierarchy and establish a platform through which to push her Green New Deal, the newly reelected Representative from New York applied to be on the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee. There were five open spots, four of which were directly assigned by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. But for the fifth spot, she left it up for grabs...
