Trump Endorses Max Miller In Campaign Against GOP Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, Who Voted to Impeach

Former President Donald Trump is making good on his promise to back primary challengers that espouse his America First agenda and has endorsed Max Miller, his former aide, in a race against Representative Anthony Gonzalez. Gonzalez was one of 10 Republicans in the House who voted to impeach the former president. He faced backlash for breaking with the majority of the party and Trump criticized the Ohio representative for not representing his constituents’ “interest or their heart.” “Max Miller is a wonderful person who did a great job at the White House and will be a fantastic congressman,” Trump said in a statement. “He is a Marine veteran, a son of Ohio, and a true PATRIOT …. Max Miller has

Donald Trump Jr. Suggests ‘RINO Policies’ Part of What Led to Trump Presidency

Donald Trump Jr. suggested Friday that more moderate policies from “RINO” Republicans were part of what led the GOP to embrace his father, former President Donald Trump. Donald Trump Jr. made his comments during a scheduled “Reigniting the Spirit of the American Dream” speech at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida. His criticisms of “RINOs,” or “Republicans in name only,” came as part of a swipe at Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who joined nine other House Republicans last month in voting to impeach the former president. “The one thing I’ll say for Liz Cheney is, I’m sure she has a lot of bipartisan support, because if there’s one thing that she and Joe Biden definitely

Josh Hawley Gets CPAC Standing Ovation at Mention of Election Certification Objection

Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley received a standing ovation from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) crowd after mentioning his vote in objection of the Electoral College certification. While speaking at the event, Hawley said, “On January 6, I objected during the Electoral College certification, maybe you heard about it.” “I did. I stood up,” Hawley said just before pausing as the crowd applauded and cheered for him. After the audience’s cheering subsided, Hawley continued, “I said, I said, we ought to have a debate about election integrity. I said, it is the right of the people to be heard and my constituents in Missouri want to be heard on this issue.” Hawley then went on to state that his

Biden Haunted by Obama’s Foreign Policy Missteps

As President Joe Biden becomes the fourth consecutive U.S. president to assume the mantle of wartime leadership in the Middle East, his foreign policy decisions inevitably are viewed in relation to those of his predecessors—and none so much as those of the man to whom he once reported, former President Barack Obama. In perhaps no country is this more clear than in Iraq, where U.S. troops remain, albeit in smaller numbers, despite Obama’s announcement of a full withdrawal nearly a decade ago amid a collapse in discussions with the Iraqi government at the time. Some observers point to this decision as a misstep that paved the way for the rise of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS). Others refute that

Here Are The Minimum Wage Proposals in Congress After $15 Hike Ruled Out of COVID Relief

With the $15 federal minimum wage proposal not likely to make it into President Joe Biden‘s coronavirus relief package, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are offering up alternative solutions. The progressive policy hit a major roadblock on Thursday when the Senate parliamentarian ruled that Democrats could not include a minimum wage hike in the budget reconciliation bill — a tool being used to pass Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan without Republican support. Some progressive members of Congress have advised Democratic leaders to ignore the parliamentarian’s ruling, or even replace her, but the Biden administration has said it will follow the upper chamber’s rules and procedures. Now, a handful of “plan B” measures to increase the minimum wage are being

Fact Check: Is Hasbro Replacing Mr. Potato Head With Gender-Neutral Toy?

As the House passed the Equality Act to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination, the conversation about gender continued online as Hasbro toy company announced a change to its classic toy.

A new skincare trend that’s gaining traction on TikTok could have serious consequences. Some app users have shared clips of themselves injecting hyaluronic acid into their faces for alleged skincare benefits, but experts warn this isn’t something you should do if you’re not a licensed professional. In a February 18 press release, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association issued a warning about this practice. “The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA) wants to alert the public about children buying and using ‘hyaluron pens’ to inject hyaluronic acid filler into the epidermal and upper dermal layers of the skin,” the statement reads. “ASDSA members, who are all board certified dermatologists, have found questionable social media videos in which children

Moderate Democrats Should Abandon Progressives and Support Romney on Minimum Wage | Opinion

On April 7, 2017, former President Donald Trump launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat Airbase in Syria. On February 26, 2021, President Joe Biden took military action for the first time since assuming office, targeting facilities near the Iraqi border in Syria. You know how the saying goes: The more things change, the more they stay the same. But it’s not just on the military front. The economic populism that swept through the nation in recent years, disrupting decades of laissez faire consensus, also appears to be on the wane. Despite his party’s momentum pushing for a federal $15 minimum wage, the president privately told mayors and governors that he doesn’t expect it to materialize anytime soon—in other
