    Mexico’s National Guard is escorting a new migrant caravan traveling through southern Mexico as the group makes its way to the U.S. border. The new caravan comes when tensions continue to build in the U.S. where Texas has set up barriers on the waters of the Rio Grande to deter migrants from making the dangerous Rio Grande crossing. The caravan consists primarily of Venezuelan migrants along with a small group of African and Haitian migrants that joined the group this week. The migrants are trying to make their way north from the state of Chiapas, which borders Guatemala, to reach...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump’s position on the national debt was “identical” to President Joe Biden’s position. Pence said, “Look, in 2016, Donald Trump promised to govern as a conservative, and I’m proud to say that we did for four years out of the Trump-Pence administration. He makes no such promise today. Not only has he been walking away from a clear commitment to the right to life, but, look, we have a national debt the size of our nation’s economy. Joe Biden’s policy is insolvency. He won’t...

    Joy Behar told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that she believes the Republican Party will not win any national elections because they are alienating young voters. Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said, “The Wall Street Journal has a great editorial today about that this Wisconsin Supreme Court seat going to a Democrat should be a huge wake-up call on how Republicans are alienated suburban voters, young voters and women.” She continued, “Now all we talk about is what we are against and not what we are for. Take that even further, Gen Z, I teach at Georgetown University, and...

    HEIDELBERG, Germany -- Poland’s prime minister warned Monday that Europe may see “revolts” if the European Union, of which his country is a member, turns into a “super-state government” that ignores national differences. Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was giving a speech at the university in Heidelberg, in Germany, about the challenges facing the continent where he said Ukraine is fighting Russia’s invasion to protect core European values of freedom. “I warn all those who want to create a super-state government by a narrow elite: if we ignore cultural differences the outcome will be the weakening of Europe and a series...

    The US is on target to eclipse previous economic forecasts and add a staggering $19 trillion to the national debt in the next 10 years, according to the nation’s budget scorekeeper. In a report released on Wednesday, the Congressional Budget Office warned that one way or another, through tax hikes or spending cuts, the country’s fiscal course needs to be corrected. “Over the long term, our projections suggest that changes in fiscal policy must be made to address the rising costs of interest and mitigate other adverse consequences of high and rising debt,” CBO Director Phillip Swagel wrote in a...

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said during a speech Monday that the national debt is the “greatest threat” to America’s future and called on President Joe Biden to negotiate with Republicans on the debt ceiling. McCarthy said during the press conference, addressing the looming debt ceiling deadline: Americans are getting hammered by higher prices. Today, nearly two-thirds of all Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, struggling to make ends meet. Meanwhile, China is infiltrating our culture, our farmland, and our skies because they see us as weak. This is not sustainable. But of all the dangers we face, the greatest threat to...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Congress could not “exclude the possibility” that national security was jeopardized by the handling of President Biden’s classified documents, which are now at the center of a Department of Justice probe. “I don’t think we can exclude the possibility without knowing more of the facts,” Schiff said on ABC’s “This Week” in an interview with Jonathan Karl. “I’d like to know what these documents were, I’d like to know what the (special counsel’s) assessment is.”

    Former and current Biden administration officials have reportedly blamed the National Archives for mishandling President Joe Biden’s classified documents stashed in three separate locations. According to a Friday CNN report that cited “former and current administration officials and others familiar with the process,” the National Archives refused to treat then-Vice President Biden’s records with the “same high regard” as it did former President Obama’s records. “While the National Archives sends staff members to the White House to gather files and papers of the President, they do not treat all vice presidential papers with the same high regard, officials said,” CNN...

    WASHINGTON — President Biden wrongly claimed Tuesday that he lowered the national debt by $1.7 trillion — when in fact the debt grew by nearly $3.7 trillion during his first 23 months in office. Biden made the error while using the terms “deficit” and “debt” interchangeably during remarks touting the slight decline in the annual inflation rate to 7.1% in November. “We’ve done all of this while lowering the federal deficit in the two years we’ve been in office $1.7 trillion,” Biden said before incorrectly adding, “Let me say that again — $1.7 trillion we’ve lowered the federal debt.” The...

    A Mankato, Minn., man is facing several charges after he allegedly beat a woman so severely that police officers “couldn’t see her eyes.” The suspect, 23-year-old Paul Peter Jal, was “upset” because the victim was “wearing an American flag shirt,” a criminal complaint says. Jal is facing charges of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, third-degree assault, threats of violence, disrupting a 911 call, and damage to property. The complaint says Mankato police responded to an apartment residence around 4:15 a.m. Oct. 2 after 911 received a call from a woman who was “screaming” as a male voice and “thumping...

    Queen Elizabeth II, who died Thursday after a historic reign as monarch of the United Kingdom, was a steadfast ally of the United States, notably breaking tradition by singing the U.S. national anthem just days after 9/11. The queen joined a crowd of thousands in singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” during a memorial service at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London for the victims on Sept. 14, 2001. Richard Kay, a columnist for the Daily Mail, wrote at the time about how unusual this was for a monarch, saying, “The Queen does not ‘sing’ national anthems. Her mouth never opens when they...
