Would-be marijuana shop owners breathed a sigh of relief Friday morning as a Cook County judge lifted a stay that had delayed state officials from issuing nearly 200 licenses for cannabis dispensary operators. “I’m going to open some red wine and have a splash and a few puffs,” said Rickey Hendon, a former state legislator and license winner. Hendon said he and his investors had been waiting more than two years for this day. “This is like Christmas and my birthday all in one.”

The Texas school shooter’s grandmother, who he shot in the face before killing 19 kids and two teachers, may never be able to talk again, a relative told The Post on Sunday. “The bullet went into Sally’s jaw just next to her mouth and shattered all her teeth,” said Jason Ybarra, a second cousin of injured granny Celia “Sally” Martinez Gonzales, 66.“If the bullet was an inch in another direction, it would have blown her head off,” he said.“She’s doing fairly well, considering what happened. But she may never be able to talk again,” added Ybarra, 45.Martinez Gonzales is currently only communicating by writing, Ybarra said.

There is "a lot of outrage" over President Joe Biden visiting Uvalde, Texas, days after a mass shooting killed 21 in a local elementary school, according to a reporter there. Stella Chavez, an immigration and demographics reporter for KERA News, was asked by CNN's Brian Stelter if the families of the victims care about Biden's trip on Sunday. "I think it depends on who you ask," Chavez said during an appearance on Reliable Sources. "I think, for the most part, the families who were affected want to focus on their loved ones who were killed. (Snip)But I also know, I’ve heard people say, you know, now is not the time

With the jury out in the trial of former 2016 Clinton campaign counsel Michael Sussmann, the usual odds-takers appeared on cable news, rating the chances of a conviction. Despite the seemingly overwhelming evidence against Sussmann, the jury’s makeup seems strikingly favorable for the defense. One verdict, however, appears to need little deliberation. It concerns the Department of Justice, and particularly the FBI. The trial confirmed what many have long alleged about how top officials eagerly accepted any Russia collusion claim involving former President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

President Donald Trump held a rally Saturday in Casper, Wyoming, to finish off the re-election bid of Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) and endorse her opponent in the primary, Harriet Hageman. The rally was packed when he was speaking. There were plenty of videos to confirm it. (Tweet/Video) But I noticed as I was covering the event last night, that folks on the left were trying to spread shots of the arena before Trump got there — before most of the people had gotten there — claiming that the rally was not full and was a “failure.” But that’s random people on the internet; you wouldn’t think that ‘journalists’ would try

But Stéphane Bancel, CEO of Moderna, was sad. He was disappointed that the plebs don’t want his company’s revered COVID-19 vaccines. “It’s sad to say, I’m in the process of throwing 30 million doses into the garbage, because nobody wants them,” lamented Bancel as he participated in a panel discussion. “We have a big demand problem.” Actually, that sounds like a big over-supply problem to me, but what do I know?

On Saturday, Joe Biden spoke at his alma mater, the University of Delaware, for their 2022 graduation ceremony.The day before, he spoke at the U.S. Naval Academy and told some despicable lies. He claimed he had received an appointment to the Academy in 1965, when in fact he was graduating from the University of Delaware in 1965, so that couldn’t possibly be true. He also claimed that he didn’t go to the Academy but chose to go to Delaware instead because the Academy had “Staubach and Bellino” there.“I didn’t come to the Academy because I wanted to be a football star.

President Joe Biden seems to have told a football fib during a speech Friday at the U.S. Naval Academy, claiming he was accepted to the vaunted military institution back in 1965, but declined because future NFL Hall of Fame Roger Staubach blocked his path to playing for the Midshipmen.Biden said he instead went to the University of Delaware, which is true. But he never played varsity football there, and there’s no evidence he ever declined a spot at Navy. The years don’t come close to matching up, either. It appears to be the latest example of Biden trying to fit in with a crowd of people he’s addressing by saying

But this s*****g’s murder rampage in Texas has given them new hope, they think. All the GOP has to do is be spineless and stupid. So, they’re feeling pretty confident.

Nancy Pelosi is in serious trouble. And not the kind of trouble associated with such petty, earthly concerns like her party losing its majority in a humiliating and historic fashion this coming November. And with that loss, her loss of the speakership for the second time in a dozen years. No, Nancy Pelosi has some serious trouble with the disposition of her soul. And she needs our prayers, even if she doesn't believe it herself. Last week, her Archbishop, the aptly named Salvatore Cordileone, notified Pelosi that she should no longer present herself for the Holy Eucharist when attending Mass.
