    Authorities revealed Tuesday afternoon that the suspect who allegedly shot dozens of people at a parade on Monday had a history of run-ins with law enforcement officials. “I’m going to relay some information from two prior instances that occurred here in Highland Park,” Christopher Covelli, Lake County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer, said at a press conference. “The first was in April of 2019. An individual contacted Highland Park Police Department a week after learning of [the suspect] attempting suicide. This was a delayed report, so Highland Park still responded to the residence a week later, spoke with [the suspect],...

    Debra Messing was fed up. The former “Will & Grace” star was among dozens of celebrity Democratic supporters and activists who joined a call with White House aides last Monday to discuss the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. The mood was fatalistic, according to three people on the call, which was also co-organized by the advocacy group Build Back Better Together. Messing said she’d gotten Joe Biden elected and wanted to know why she was being asked to do anything at all, yelling that there didn’t even seem a point to voting. Others wondered why the call was happening....

    One source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, argued there’s no rush for Trump to declare his candidacy. Trump remains the most popular and influential figure in the Republican Party, the source said, and the former president could afford to wait until he has a clearer campaign infrastructure in place before throwing himself fully into a White House campaign. In the meantime, advisers close to the former president said Trump will continue holding rallies for his endorsed candidates across the country as a way to address his most ardent supporters and test out potential attack lines for a would-be...

    The suspected gunman in the deadly shooting at an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois, had prior contact with law enforcement, police said Tuesday. Robert "Bobby" E. Crimo III, 21, had two previous encounters with police in Highland Park, with the most recent in September 2019 over a "mental health issue" in which Crimo threatened to kill members of his family, Christopher Covelli, a spokesman for the Lake County Major Crime Task Force said in a news briefing.

    s masks, travel restrictions, and COVID testing fade into the past, one aspect of the pandemic may stick around for quite some time: Vaccines. Canadian Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said Canadians may soon be required to get a booster shot every nine months for the foreseeable future to protect against new variants of the COVID-19 vaccine. Speaking to reporters, Duclos said Canadians who got a shot last summer are no longer "up to date," and should now roll up their sleeves for another booster. “The virus evolves and Omicron made us aware we will never be fully vaccinated against COVID-19,”...

    CNN)Florida's law banning abortions at 15 weeks will remain in effect after the state filed an appeal Tuesday that stayed a state judge's order temporarily blocking the ban. In a verbal ruling last week, Second Judicial Circuit Court Judge John Cooper said that the Florida law was unconstitutional and that he would issue a temporary statewide injunction in a challenge brought by some Florida abortion providers. The law, known as House Bill 5, went into effect on Friday. Cooper signed the written order on Tuesday morning. But soon after, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, a Republican, filed an appeal on...

    Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and her campaign have doled out more than $520,000 to a private security firm since December of last year — while Abrams herself maintains ties with an organization seeking to defund the police. A Post review of Abrams’ campaign finance expenditures made public by the Georgia Campaign Finance Commission and Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission found that Abrams for Governor paid $520,612.57 to Executive Protection Agencies for “security services.” The payments — made in 11 installments of $39,335; $46,765; $44,380; $49,713.24; $50.252.50; $54,487.22; $56,141.43; $4,455; $64,221.18; $54,101.17; and $56,760.83 — were sent...

    “Ed departments…they’re the dumbest part of every college,” the president of Hillsdale College said in a video published June 30 by News Channel 5. “If you study physics, there’s a subject, right? How does the physical world work? That’s hard to figure out,” President Larry Arnn said at a meeting in June with the governor of Tennessee. “Education is the study of how to teach,” Arnn (pictured) said in the video. “Is that a separate art? I don’t think so.” “Do they ever talk about anything except what they’re going to do to these kids?” he said. News Channel 5...

    The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear that the Second Amendment guarantees law-abiding citizens the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense, both in their homes and in public. On Friday, New York responded that it didn’t care. New York Gov. Kathy Hochul ushered in the long Independence Day weekend on Friday by signing into law legislation crafted in response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen. Just more than a week earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court in Bruen had declared that New York’s prior “may issue” gun licensing...

    The purpose of the January 6 committee is to further the lie that there was nothing seriously wrong with the 2020 election and to criminalize any questioning of the election. The January 6 riot gives the committee a nice hook, but that’s not what they really care about. They want to prevent you from admitting the election was irregular, faulty, or anything less than the most perfect election in the history of mankind, and from supporting people who fought against those irregularities. In service of this goal, the January 6 committee repeatedly lied about the actual claims Donald Trump supporters...

    Stocks were mostly lower on Tuesday as concerns about a possible recession in the U.S. weighed on investor sentiment, but lower interest rates appeared to boost the tech sector. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell about 290 points, or about 0.9%, after falling roughly 700 points earlier in the session. The S&P 500 dipped 0.4%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite outperformed and rose more than 1%.

    More than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of a historic U.S. emergency oil reserves release aimed at lowering domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month, according to data and sources, even as U.S. gasoline and diesel prices touched record highs. The export of crude and fuel is blunting the impact of the moves by U.S. President Joe Biden designed to lower record pump prices. Biden on Saturday renewed a call for gasoline suppliers to cut their prices, drawing criticism from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

    Donald Trump is definitely running for president again in 2024 and will easily win the Republican nomination and retake the White House, his self-proclaimed “secret adviser” claims in a provocative new book. Dick Morris, a veteran political consultant who advised Bill Clinton for years, says he served as an unpaid, back-channel adviser to Trump in 2020. His father, Eugene Morris, was the longtime real estate lawyer for Trump’s dad, Fred and then son Donald. So, they have a longtime connection. In his new book “The Return: Trump’s 2024 Comeback” (Humanix Books), Morris claims that voters who have buyer’s remorse with...
