    Thursday, during an appearance on FNC’s “The Story,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) blasted President Joe Biden’s record, citing several metrics calling into question the economic health of the United States. The Louisiana Republican suggested he would be ashamed if he had a record comparable to Biden’s record. “I think that President Biden is the only person in the Milky Way who thinks our country is headed in the right direction,” Kennedy said. “Look at the facts. Last year, our economy grew at 1% — 1%. China’s economy was shut down. It grew at 3%, 13.5% inflation cumulatively. That’s what President...

The AP observed 117 homicides were reported in 2021, but three of those were reclassified as self-defense shootings, dropping the number of homicides to 114.

    Cheyenne, Wyoming, broke a record on Wednesday, seeing the most drastic temperature drop in less than an hour as the country braces for a massive winter storm, days before Christmas. The National Weather Service (NWS) is warning of the “widespread and dangerous arctic blast,” which has already begun to sweep the U.S., making its way to the East Coast as the holidays approach. The NWS warns that the “record-breaking cold and life-threatening wind chills over the Great Plains” will spread to the eastern portion of the country by Friday. Some cities have already experienced historic drops in temperature. Cheyenne, Wyoming,...

    Corporate profits in the nonfinancial sector hit a record high of $2.08 trillion in the third quarter even as 40-year-high inflation continues to squeeze American consumers. Profits adjusted for inventories and capital consumption rose $6.1 trillion from the second to third fiscal quarters, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday, continuing a red-hot recovery from the flash recession caused by pandemic shutdowns. Following a two-quarter dip in 2020, quarterly profits have surged by more than 80 percent over the last two years, from around $1.2 trillion to more than $2 trillion, adding weight to arguments that the private sector is driving inflation...

    BEIJING, Nov 24 (Reuters) - China reported record high COVID-19 infections on Thursday, with cities nationwide imposing localised lockdowns, mass testing and other curbs that are fuelling frustration and darkening the outlook for the world's second largest economy. The resurgence of infections, nearly three years after the pandemic emerged in the central city of Wuhan, casts doubt on investor hopes for China to ease its rigid zero-COVID policy soon, despite recent more targeted measures.

    On his 98th birthday, Jimmy Carter has once again set a new record as the longest-living United States president. He's held the title since March of 2019, months after the previous title holder — President George H.W. Bush — died at the age of 94. President Carter may have only led the nation for four years, but in the four decades that have followed his White House tenure, he's managed to leverage his place in history to help others both domestically and abroad. The Carter Center, founded by Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter in 1982, has been aiding in a wide...
  • There’s a lot of excitement about Aaron Judge’s home runs: Why? When one looks at the big picture, that excitement may be more focused on erasing the past than on celebrating a great player.

    American Thinker ^ | 09/26/2022 | Will O' Toole
    Saturday afternoon, Aaron Judge went homerless, leaving his record at 60 homers, which ties with the greatest and most important player in baseball history, Babe Ruth. Judge still needs two jolts to surpass Roger Maris and take sole leadership of the most home runs in a season in both New York Yankee and American League history. However, while 62 homers are impressive, they still significantly trail Barry Bonds’ 73 homers in 2001. Even if Judge reaches 62 sometime in the next 11 games, he’d still be only seventh on the single-season list trailing Sammy Sosa (63 in 1999, 64 in...

    LONDON (AP) — The prevalence of COVID-19 in the U.K. has reached record levels, with about 1 in 13 people estimated to be infected with the virus in the past week, according to the latest figures from Britain’s official statistics agency.

The latest surge is driven by the more transmissible omicron variant BA.2, which is the dominant variant across the U.K.

    Social media posts claim that a convoy heading to Canada's capital to protest Covid-19 vaccine mandates for truckers set a Guinness World Record for being the longest. This is false; the global authority on record-breaking said the honor is held by a parade that took place in Egypt in 2020, and specific conditions have to be met for an official record attempt to be registered by Guinness. **SNIP** But claiming that it "made the Guinness Book of World Records" for being the longest convoy is false. A spokeswoman for Guinness World Records told AFP in an email that the "the...
