    Sarah Palin, a former Alaska governor and the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, said Friday that she was entering the race for Alaska’s lone congressional seat, marking her return to national politics after she helped revive the anti-establishment rhetoric that has come to define the Republican Party. She will be joining a crowded field of nearly 40 candidates to fill the House seat left vacant by Representative Don Young, whose unexpected death last month has spurred one of the largest political shifts in the state in 50 years. Ms. Palin said she planned to honor Mr. Young’s legacy,...

    Simone Biles is the golden girl, interrupted, of the Tokyo Olympics. America’s beloved gymnast announced Tuesday that she was withdrawing from the team competition following a “stunning breakdown” at the long-delayed 2020 Olympics, citing mental health issues — and not an injury — that were exacerbated by the pressure to be “head star” at the summer games. After her unexpected departure, the USA women’s gymnastics team ended up taking home the silver medal without 24-year-old Biles, a four-time Olympic gold medalist. However, the decision to focus on competing for her own well-being instead of medals — while jarring to many...

    We've all known for a long time that the structural changes the left has been making to the electorate through third world wave immigration and propagandization of the campus and media were going to eventually do us in. The time has arrived. If you want to say that the fraud was difference in the elections tonight, I'm not going to argue, but it won't be much longer than they'll need fraud. Fact is, two strident communists like them shouldn't come within a country mile of winning statewide in Georgia. The communists are expanding their map. We're bickering over how we...

"He had to blow some teams away," Garafolo said Sunday on "NFL GameDay." "He didn't do that." Kaepernick's "velocity was real...

    White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney emerged from a meeting with House Republicans with an ultimatum. If the House-led effort to replace Obamacare fails, the United States is stuck with Obamacare, according to several Congressional reporters on Twitter. Mulvaney was joined by a group of administration officials including senior advisors Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, and Kellyanne Conway for an evening meeting with House Republicans in an effort to break the logjam on the bill. Most House Freedom Caucus members refuse to vote for the bill without major changes. Moderate House Republicans have also protested the bill.
