Amy Kennedy says she is following in the Kennedy tradition of putting people first. It is most unfortunate that her late father-in-law didn't believe that and left Mary Jo to drown.

Google hopes to build a new, town-like campus near its Silicon Valley headquarters. The company this month unveiled its proposal for Middlefield Park, a revamped 40-acre site in the city of Mountain View, California, where Google's main headquarters is currently based. The plan includes a parks network, retail space, office space, and even a public pool and sports field. The tech giant also plans to add as many as 1,850 residential units, and the company says 20% of those units will be affordable housing. The housing commitment follows a $1 billion pledge Google made last year to housing in the

The beginning of college football season also marked the return of ESPN’s “College GameDay” to the airwaves on Saturday. Though the crew wasn’t together on campus for a high-profile Week 1 game somewhere, it was a welcome sight for college football fans after a long, winding offseason. There was plenty of discussion about COVID-19 and how it has already affected the season, but the most notable portion of the broadcast was the heartfelt discussion about racial injustice in the United States. It was a discussion that saw Kirk Herbstreit overcome with emotion. Watch this: (Tweet) In recent weeks, college football

The first COVID-19 death associated with a massive biker rally in Sturgis, South Dakota has been reported weeks after the event attracted more than 400,000 vehicles and drew widespread concern from public health officials. The death was reported by Minnesota Department of Health Infectious Disease Director Kris Ehresmann at a Wednesday briefing. Minnesota — South Dakota's neighbor to the east — is tracking an ongoing outbreak of 50 cases tied to the August event, Ehresmann said. A Minnesota man who died was in his 60s and had underlying health conditions. The 50-case outbreak only includes people who attended the event, Ehresmann said

The mayor of US capital Washington on Wednesday asked a committee studying the fate of its monuments to figures linked to slavery and racism to focus on "contextualizing, not removing" federal memorials, after the White House slammed its recommendations as "ludicrous." The "DC Faces" group had recommended that seven monuments, including the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial and a statue of Christopher Columbus, should be "removed, renamed or contextualized." It also wants a change in the names of some 50 city schools and parks named after controversial historical figures who "encouraged the oppression of African Americans and other communities of color

MSNBC host Joy Reid on Wednesday night said she should have been more “sensitive” two days earlier when she seemingly compared radicalized Trump supporters to “the way Muslims act,” remarks that sparked outrage among Muslim activists and organizations. More specifically, it was a non-apology. “For decades, America’s Muslim community has endured blanket portrayals that focus on one thing, just one thing, terrorism,” she said Wednesday. “Particularly after 9/11, profiling became a near American obsession for anybody Brown—god forbid with a beard or headscarf, whether they were Muslim or not, traveling through an airport could be hell.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden has finally emerged from his basement — and Democrats are relieved. After months of near-seclusion at his home in Delaware, the Democratic nominee has given two well-crafted speeches in two weeks: an eloquent and hopeful acceptance speech at his party’s convention and a forceful attack Monday on President Trump over the boiling issue of urban violence. So far, so good — but two speeches do not a winning campaign make. Biden needs to do much more in the two months before election day, pandemic or not.

A Washington Post op-ed published Thursday suggested Americans should prepare for war if the election result is anything but a landslide for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.The op-ed, titled “What’s the worst that could happen?” is written by Rosa Brooks, a law professor at Georgetown University. In it, Brooks notes that the Transition Integrity Project, which she co-founded, “built a series of war games,” gathered participants “and asked them to imagine what they’d do in a range of election and transition scenarios.” “A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening. It started with the military brass quietly indicating that the troops should not follow a presidential order. They were bolstered by many former generals—including President Trump’s own first Secretary of Defense—who stated openly what the brass would only hint at. Then, as nationwide riots really got rolling in early June, the sitting Secretary of Defense

There is new evidence supporting President Trump's public call for drug testing before the all-important presidential debates.

Now comes something else suspicious: a bruise and swelling on Biden’s left hand right where an intravenous drip needle is customarily inserted when administering drugs (such as amphetamines).

On Friday, the Trump campaign released a brutal ad savaging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for getting a hair blow out at a salon in San Francisco without a wearing a mask and then having the audacity to claim she fell victim to a “set up” after getting caught. Throughout the two-minute ad, Nancy Pelosi is constantly referred to as “Nancy Antoinette,” a reference to the French queen Marie Antoinette, who has (though falsely) been characterized throughout history as a superficial elitist that cared little for the people. “Let them eat cake,” she apocryphally said. Interspersed throughout are video and audio clips of Pelosi advising people to wear masks

Erica Kious is now getting threats against her life and her business for exposing the hypocrisy of Nancy Pelosi, who accuses the salon owner of a “setup” that caught her on camera getting her hair done indoors, against lockdown rules, and without wearing a mask, to boot. Does Pelosi really expect people to believe she was ignorant of her city’s anti-COVID rules — and also the staffers who bird-dog the schedule of the speaker of the House? No: Pelosi knew she was cheating. She just can’t admit she believes the rules don’t apply to her but only to those whose livelihoods they’re destroying.

After capturing the encampment on video, the reporter was chased for several blocks by two men, one with a slingshot.
