CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX launched four astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA on Thursday, including the first person from the Arab world going up for an extended monthslong stay. The Falcon rocket bolted from Kennedy Space Center shortly after midnight, illuminating the night sky as it headed up the East Coast. Nearly 80 spectators from the United Arab Emirates watched from the launch site as astronaut Sultan al-Neyadi — only the second Emirati to fly to space — blasted off on his six-month mission. Half a world away in Dubai and elsewhere across the UAE, schools and offices broadcast the launch live.

Just curious, how does a muslim, assuming Sultan al-Neyadi is muslim, find the direction of Mecca five times a day from space?

Check off the diversity box for NASA with the first Arab in space. Affectionately name this spacecraft the "Cosmos Camel in honor of the event. But be sure not to let him get to the controls.

The legal team representing former President Donald Trump formally has requested a six-month delay in the civil case filed against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James. James brought a civil suit against Trump in September, alleging the Trump organization had fraudulently inflated the value of certain assets. The lawsuit alleges Trump and senior executives at the Trump Organization, along with children Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump, "falsely inflated" Trump's net worth by billions of dollars in an effort to secure bank loans with more favorable terms.

The FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO) affirmed that there may have been “undercover officers” and “confidential human sources” inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, according to whistleblower testimony obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. The FBI’s Washington Field Office requested the Boston Field Office open investigations into 140 individuals who took buses from Massachusetts to D.C. on Jan. 6., but denied the office’s request to see video proving those individuals were inside the Capitol, FBI whistleblower George Hill said during a Feb. 10 interview with the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury is not the (allegedly) dirtiest fight of 2023. That title belt goes to DirecTV vs. Newsmax TV. Some quick background: After failing to come to terms on a new carriage deal, DirecTV and Newsmax TV parted ways in late January. DirecTV, one of the first pay-TV services to carry Newsmax when it launched nearly a decade ago, brought in a new right-leaning cable-news channel, The First, in its place.Negotiations between DirecTV and Newsmax continued, the dispute has devolved into accusations about greed, playing politics, and even antisemitism. Like we said, it’s bad. But, incredibly, it is still resolvable.

General Michael Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who was the 24th U.S. National Security Advisor for the first 22 days of the Trump administration. General Flynn, a staunch Trump ally and confidante, was forced to resign in 2017 following screaming reports that he had lied regarding conversations with Sergey Kislyak, a Russian diplomat. This was while the Democrat Party and highest levels of US intelligence concocted an attempted coup to take down the sitting President based on what they knew was fraudulent accusations that Trump was Vladimir Putin’s stooge. General Michael Flynn was collateral damage. They had to remove him to get

The Delaware Supreme Court literally lowered the bar this week by changing the grade needed to become a certified lawyer in The First State as part of its attempt to increase racial diversity among lawyers and judges. Yet, those responsible for the change insist that it has not lowered standards. Of course, certain barriers are put in place to keep unqualified people from doing very important jobs. Nonetheless, Delaware Supreme Court Chief Justice Collins J. Seitz Jr. said via a news release, “the bar exam is not supposed to be a barrier to entering the profession but is supposed to be a test of an applicant’s ability to successfully practice law

As Donald J. Trump revs up his campaign for 2024, he continued to make news with big plans for his re-election. On Friday, he released a video titled, “Agenda47: A New Quantum Leap to Revolutionize the American Standard of Living.” Trump’s speech emphasized the need for America to regain its boldness and pursue big dreams like past generations did. “Today our country has lost its boldness. Under my leadership, we will get it back in a very big way,” he stated. Trump discussed several ways this can be achieved, such as building new cities and transforming transportation with vertical takeoff and landing vehicles. “Our objective will be a Quantum Leap

Talk about your Friday news dump. The White House has released a statement from Joe Biden’s doctor stating that the president had “cancerous tissue” removed. The procedure occurred on February 16th but was not revealed to the public at the time. A biopsy came back and confirmed the “skin lesion” was cancerous. (Tweet) As is typical with these statements from doctors vouching for politicians, the most positive spin is being put on the event. According to the president’s physician, no further treatment is required and Biden has healed “nicely.” I suspect that’ll be the official line from the White House going forward.

Whatever dream Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) had of running for president in 2024 is dead, and Californians are the ones who have killed it. A poll from Quinnipiac University found that just 24% of Californians want him to run for president, whereas 70% do not. Even among California Democrats, Newsom is still in the negatives, with 54% wanting him to sit out in 2024 and only 35% wanting him to run. This is despite the fact that 57% of Californians and 37% of California Democrats do not want President Joe Biden to run, according to a poll from the Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies.

Amalgamated Bank, with just five branches across three cities, would seem an unlikely mover and shaker in the world of Wall Street, let alone Washington, D.C. Yet last fall, it successfully pressured colossal credit card companies Visa, Mastercard, and American Express to use the financial system to track and report gun purchases. Amalgamated is “more than a bank,” says Michael Watson of the Capital Research Center. “It’s a bank for an ideological movement.” This “ideological” bank holds $7 billion in deposits and manages or maintains custody of some $51 billion.

After a number of Trump-endorsed Republicans lost key elections in the midterms, the many wings of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire began to urge the party to move past the former president. Now that dynamic may be escalating in a way that could hurt his shot at the GOP nomination in 2024. According to four Trump aides who spoke with Semafor, the former president is now facing an unofficial ban at Fox News, with the network refusing to book him or even talk much about him in the context of the Republican presidential primary. “It’s certainly — however you want to say, quiet ban, soft ban, whatever it is —

A stunning report in Wednesday’s Washington Post details the tensions between FBI agents and Justice Department attorneys over the August raid of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, Mar-a-Lago. FBI officials were leery of the plan, and pleaded for a more measured approach, while DOJ prosecutors were hell-bent on a surprise incursion to search for classified documents: Prosecutors argued that new evidence suggested Trump was knowingly concealing secret documents at his Palm Beach, Fla., home and urged the FBI to conduct a surprise raid at the property. But two senior FBI officials who would be in charge of leading the search resisted the plan as too combative

Just a couple of girls, living in the moment, discussing cootie-ridden boys! Just kidding, it was MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart and Doug Emhoff, in a one-on-one interview where the eunuchs discussed “toxic masculinity” — something about which Emhoff has thought “a lot”. (Snip) First of all, let’s just be clear on one thing, because this is an area where conservatives forfeit ground to leftist Newspeak. “Gender” isn’t a word that applies to the human race, rather it is a word that applies to language — words, not people, are “gendered.” The left is right though on one thing: “gender” is a social construct, albeit one fabricated by pseudo-academic leftists.

As soon as this month, air quality officials in the San Francisco Bay Area are expected to adopt the nation’s first rules phasing out new gas-fueled water heaters and furnaces in homes and businesses starting in 2027. When they do, it will mark a significant step in the effort to curb health-damaging and planet-warming emissions from buildings. The California Air Resources Board adopted plans last year to phase out sales of gas water heaters and furnaces statewide by 2030 but isn't going to consider setting rules to do so until 2025.
