    Governor Chris Sununu (R-NH) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that voters will choose former President Donald Trump even if he is convicted of crimes. Partial transcript as follows: STEPHANOPOULOS: History being made tomorrow, that criminal trial. Will your support for Donald Trump continue even if he’s convicted in Manhattan? SUNUNU: Yeah, look, this — this trial is not going to have major political ramifications that a lot of people, I think, think it may have. And when it comes to these issues, people see it more as reality TV at this point. They really do. And so, you know,...

    Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that abortion “is on the ballot in all 50 states’ because of a potential national abortion ban. Host Kristen Welker said, “Former President Trump held a rally last night. He did not mention the issue of abortion, but earlier this week he noted that abortion laws are left up to the states. he said he wouldn’t support a national ban. How concerned are you that his efforts to straddle the line could effectively weaken this issue for Democrats?”

Take a listen to what he said.”

    Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) commander, General Hossein Salami, on Sunday applauded the drone and missile attack on Israel, lauding it as more successful than expected before warning against any retaliation from the Jewish state or its allies. Salami’s boast came despite the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) saying it had intercepted the “majority” of the “dozens” of drones and cruise missiles sent to attack Israel, though a few hit targets, including an IDF base, as Breitbart News reported.

    World leaders were quick to condemn the “reckless” attacks on Israel by the Islamist regime in Iran, which they said “crossed a new line” in launching dozens of drone and missile strikes against the Jewish state on Saturday. The international community, including leaders in Britain and the European Union, swiftly condemned the strikes on Israel by the Revolutionary Guard Corps of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which marked a dramatic escalation in the conflict between Tehran and Jerusalem from previous attacks carried out by Iran’s terrorist proxies in the region to direct strikes.

    Mayor Eric Adams might be crying poverty over the Big Apple’s migrant crisis, but that didn’t stop him from quietly pushing through a giant $2.1 billion raise package for 10,000 bureaucrats. The salary increases, which Adams approved in February without putting out a press release, will retroactively boost salaries by 16.2% for managers and other non-union employees when compounded annually over a five-year period dating back to 2021.

    Former populist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) bent the knee to the Democrat establishment by surrendering her first dues payment to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). House campaign committees require election cycle dues from lawmakers. The amounts vary depending on party status. Lawmakers accumulate power by raising and dispersing funds to committees and colleagues. The parties award members for the donations with better committee assignments and favorable legislation treatment.

The discovery was announced earlier this week, The Associated Press noted. The banquet hall and its mosaic floor were uncovered during a project to help prevent further demise of the ruins of Pompeii.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s husband Chasten Buttigieg said Friday on MSNBC “Deadline ” that Republicans were telling suicidal LGBTQ people to “pull the trigger.” Host Nicolle Wallace said, “I think that’s exactly right. I keep having Amanda Zurawski back, the woman in Texas who was pregnant and named her daughter Willow. She lost her pregnancy at 18 weeks and almost died of sepsis. It’s a story that is real. It’s a woman who very much wanted her pregnancy. It’s this inconvenient wrinkle for Republicans for extremist Republicans policies on abortion because it doesn’t fit into the mold. If you love...

    The state was pushed to the front of the US abortion battle this week after the state's Supreme Court upheld a 1864 law banning almost all abortions. "Donald Trump did this," Ms Harris said. Her remarks added to recent attacks from the Biden campaign tying Mr Trump to abortion bans nationwide.

    Immediately after Monday’s solar eclipse, the number of people searching Google for eye-related injuries jumped while one doctor in New York City says she treated a surge of patients with eye pain. "I had several patients come in panicking saying ‘I don't want to go blind,’" Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, a New York City-based double board-certified doctor tells Fox News Digital. "I couldn't believe it, people actually looked at the eclipse without protection." Doctors and eye specialists had been warning the public for days not to look directly at the sun, but apparently, some did not heed the advice.

    Former President Trump threw his support behind Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) on Friday as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) — one of Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill — threatens to force a vote on ousting the House leader. Asked during a press conference at Mar-a-Lago if he supports Greene’s motion to vacate, Trump — while standing beside Johnson — said the Speaker is “doing a very good job.”

    Catholics in the U.S., one of the country's largest single Christian groups, hold far more diverse views on abortion rights than the official teaching of their church. While the Catholic Church itself holds that abortion is wrong and should not be legal, 6 in 10 U.S. adult Catholics say abortion should be legal in all or most cases, according to a newly released profile of Catholicism by Pew Research.

    Michael Cohen, the ex-personal attorney of former President Trump, said his former boss should be sanctioned for violating his gag order in the hush money case and calling both Cohen and porn actress Stormy Daniels “two sleaze bags.” Trump’s hush money trial is set to begin Monday. Cohen sat down for an interview with Politico ahead of the April 15 start date and continued his criticisms of the former president. “I’m not the defendant in this case. The defendant in this case is the former president, Donald J. Trump. So, what does he do? He starts to attack. And despite...

    Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) this week pushed for an independent commission to look into the Israeli strike that killed seven aid workers with the charity World Central Kitchen (WCK) earlier this month. Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday that she signed onto a letter with more than 50 other Democrats calling to withhold weapons until an independent commission can investigate the WCK strike. “The letter is simple: until you have an investigation, we should withhold,” she said. “I think it’s a very contained letter. There are other people who have different standards for what we should...

    First daughter Ashley Biden made a rare appearance at a lavish state dinner welcoming the Japanese prime minister to the White House on Wednesday, a day after the woman who stole and sold her diary was sentenced to a month of prison time. The New York Times noted the timing of her appearance: Ashley Biden, the president’s daughter, politely but quickly drifted away from the cameras after telling reporters about her dress. On Tuesday, a Florida woman was sentenced to jail for selling Ms. Biden’s private diary to a right-wing activist group. But outside worries rarely come between a Biden...

    Arizona’s Democrat Attorney General says she will not enforce an 1864 law that was upheld by the state Supreme Court on Tuesday banning nearly all abortions. “The decision made by the Arizona Supreme Court today is unconscionable and an affront to freedom. Make no mistake, by effectively striking down a law passed this century and replacing it with one from 160 years ago, the Court has risked the health and lives of Arizonans,” Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes (pictured above) said in a statement. “The Arizona Court of Appeals decision, which the Supreme Court has struck down [on Tuesday], was...

    John Dean, a White House counsel to former President Richard Nixon, used just two words to describe the raft of unsuccessful appeals that former President Donald Trump has filed in his futile attempts to delay the start of his criminal hush money trial. “I think these appeals now, everybody knows, are frivolous, they’re desperate,” Dean told CNN’s Boris Sanchez on Wednesday. The four-time-indicted presumptive GOP presidential nominee “doesn’t want this case to go on before he has to face the voters,” Dean added. “And it is not going to help his campaign contrary to any thoughts that he pretends that...
