Former President Trump said Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) running for president would be “a great act of disloyalty” as he kicked off his first two major campaign events as part of his own 2024 presidential run. Trump visited New Hampshire and South Carolina, two of the first states to vote in the primary calendar, on Saturday after a quieter-than-normal beginning to his reelection campaign. He launched his campaign in mid-November, but has yet to hold any major rallies that were consistent during his 2016 and 2020 runs. Trump announced the leaders of his New Hampshire and South Carolina campaigns during his speeches. After his South Carolina speech,

Hunter Biden allegedly transformed his father’s Wilmington, Delaware home, where classified documents have been found, into a home office that was central to his overseas business dealings, according to experts and leaked cellphone texts. This comes as allegations swirl that Hunter Biden used classified materials to profit off business deals involving energy and Ukraine, according to Fox Business. He reportedly emailed his partner in 2014 before Vice President Joe Biden flew to Ukraine. The president’s son reportedly listed the Wilmington home as his address in the wake of his 2017 divorce from ex-wife Kathleen Buhle. Hunter Biden went so far as to claim that he owned the lakefront mansion

Republicans on the newly created Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government met for the first time Friday to begin mapping out their investigative pursuits. The closed-door meeting included all of the subcommittee’s GOP members, aside from Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL), who was home recovering from a serious accident, according to a source present at the meeting. “There’s a lot for us to do. That’s really clear, and that’s just in the course of the discussion we had,” Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) said as he emerged from the meeting room.

Dillon could not immediately be reached for comment. It was one of the first of many wine-and-dine events that Trump has planned with social media influencers,

Former President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama ramped up their calls for police reform following the release of the video showing the “vicious” beating of Tyre Nichols. “The vicious, unjustified beating of Tyre Nichols and his ultimate death at the hands of five Memphis police officers is just the latest, painful reminder of how far America still has to go in fixing how we police our streets,” they tweeted Saturday. They said responsibility falls on all people to “mobilize” to create change and included a link to a webpage for the Obama Foundation

The Memphis Police Department Saturday announced that it has "permanently deactivated" its SCORPION unit, one day after the release of shocking video which showed the violent arrest of Tyre Nichols earlier this month. All five former officers involved in Nichols' arrest, who have since been charged with second-degree murder in his death, were part of that unit. The decision came after Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn "CJ" Davis met with members of the unit Saturday "to discuss the path forward for the department and the community in the aftermath of the tragic death of Tyre Nichols," police said in a statement.

SALEM, N.H. — Former President Donald Trump is tapping outgoing New Hampshire GOP Chair Stephen Stepanek to help oversee his operation in the first-in-the-nation primary state as he pushes back against criticism that his campaign is off to a slow start. Stepanek, a state co-chair for Trump’s 2016 campaign who went on to serve two terms as head of the state GOP, will serve as a senior adviser focused on New Hampshire, POLITICO first reported. Trump announced the hire during his keynote address at the party’s annual meeting Saturday, where members also selected Stepanek’s successor.

As my RedState colleagues and I have noted before, that First Lady Jill Biden frequently plays director and Shover-in-Chief for supposed leader of the free world Joe Biden, when he appears lost and/or confused during public speaking engagements, is not new news. But recent instances where “Dr.” Jill stepped in to run interference for Joe Biden in the midst of his classified documents scandal have put a finer point on Jill Biden’s sometimes domineering hold over Joe, at a time when the POTUS, who has faced questions throughout his presidency about his mental fitness to lead, hasn’t officially declared that he’s running for reelection–though rumors are swirling

As the crisis of illegal crossings continues unabated at the Southern Border, migrant encounters in the state of Vermont were also up a staggering 734 percent in the period of October-December 2022 compared to the same period the prior year. While the percentage rise is massive, the pace is still a trickle compared to what goes on at the Rio Grande. For instance, 441 crossers were caught trying to slip into Vermont from Canada in December 2022, while a record 251,487 were nabbed trying to cross the US-Mexico border during the same period. Still, the dramatic rise is still concerning.

Renner previously said he had broken more than 30 bones in the incident, but they would "grow stronger, just like the love and bond with family and friends deepens".

A new set of whale meat vending machines debuted in Japan this week. Kyodo Senpaku Co., a Japanese whaling operator, unveiled them in the port town of Yokohama, approximately 20 miles from its capital city of Tokyo. This is the third vending machine outlet the company has installed in an effort to promote sales after years of struggling to promote its products due to whale conservationists’ protests. (Photos) In 2018, Japan put an end to the hunting of the animal in the Antarctic and resumed commercial whaling off its coasts. That moved halted the protesters, but the groups still oppose the new machines.

Jews eat kosher, Muslims have halal, Hindus eschew meat, and many Christians fast during Lent. So naturally, the fastest-growing religion today — earth and climate worship — is developing its own faith-based dietary restrictions. “Climatarians” (also called “reducitarians” or “climavores”) are people who make their food choices based on how what they eat will impact the earth, with the aim of reducing their carbon “foodprint.” The Earthist version of original sin is that, simply by living, people commit climate sin every time they eat, breathe, travel, and heat or cool their homes. Naturally, the younger generations are the most pious Earthists,

On this day in history, Jan. 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger — scheduled for a routine launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida — exploded after just 73 seconds in flight, killing all seven Americans on board. The disaster shocked the nation — and led to an immediate pause in the space shuttle program. The cause of the disaster was found to be the failure of the primary and secondary redundant O-ring seals in a joint in the shuttle's right solid rocket booster (SRB). While the mission on that fateful day in 1986 was supposed to be like any other routine mission,

He makes sure to emphasize this is a forever arrangement. [Video] Specifically, he wants cash for the “psychological damages” wrought by slavery. Nearly everything, apparently, counts as “psychological damage” to Dr. Johnson.

Testosterone is an interesting hormone. The more a man uses it, the higher his levels become. And the higher his levels become, the more he wants to use it. Exercise, especially resistance training like weight lifting, increases T levels. And then the increased T levels make a man want to go lift some weights. It’s a virtuous circle. If gasoline in a car were like T in a man’s body, the more you drove, and the harder you drove, the more gas there would be in your tank. But there’s not much gas in the tank of young men these days.

The release of the videos from the lethal arrest of Tyre Nichols, 29, is shocking for its lack of professional tactics and procedures. This looks like adrenaline-filled rage … from the officers. At certain points, it is the suspect who sounds to be trying to de-escalate the situation. It is unfortunately not unique. In physical encounters, officers can escalate violence and lose control with lethal consequences. The footage helps establish a number of legal points. The force is clearly and undeniably excessive. It was a complete breakdown of training and supervision. It is hard to look at this tape objectively and analytically given the emotional impact of the scene. Yet

I think it’s safe to say that David DePape, Paul Pelosi’s alleged attacker, has more than a few issues. We saw the harrowing body cam video where he attacked Pelosi with the hammer, as well as the Capitol Police surveillance video showing how he broke into the Pelosi home. Capitol Police were not monitoring the video at the time because Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was out of town. We also heard the troubling call Paul Pelosi made to a 911 operator. But DePape also made a wild call to KTVU, a local California news station on Friday, to deliver an “important message.”
