Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene renewed calls for a “national divorce” between red and blue states, arguing that Americans who move to conservative states from California and New York should have a “cooling off” period before being allowed to vote.
"Judge Nathan did not set a date for Ms. Maxwell to be sentenced. On the most serious of the counts for which she was convicted — sex trafficking of minors — she could face up to 40 years in prison. Another count carries a potential 10-year sentence, and the three others, all conspiracy counts, carry sentences of up to five years each," the New York Times reports.
Given the jury's findings, questions are being raised about a lack of consequences for the men who benefitted from Maxwell's behavior. Former President Bill Clinton was one of them and visited Epstein's private island, where much of the abuse took place, multiple times.

"Unless there's something coming out of left field I don't see coming, it's his nomination if he wants it," Graham told guest host Pete Hegseth on "Hannity" Wednesday. "The Republican base appreciated him. We don't appreciate all the things he does sometimes. But from a policy point of view, he was the most successful president from a conservative's point of view since Ronald Reagan."
"[Trump] will be in the White House in 2024 if he runs a disciplined campaign," Graham said.
The trial centered around the testimony of four women who said Epstein had sexually abused them in the 1990s and 2000s when two of them were as young as 14 years old. One of the two victims said that Maxwell was present during the abuse and another said that Maxwell herself abused her.
While no sentencing date has been set yet, Maxwell could face 40 years alone for the sex trafficking charge. She was also found guilty of a charge regarding the transportation of a minor with intent to engage in illegal sexual activity, which she could face an additional 10 years for. Other charges had to do with conspiracy, which each carry a five year maximum sentence.

The White House communications team is in damage control mode after President Joe Biden said Monday there is "no federal solution" to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. Biden made the remarks before a virtual meeting with governors at the Eisenhower Office Building.
They've also reached out to their allies in the media, who are happily trying to rework what Biden said.
For the week ending Dec. 25, the agency says omicron accounted for 58.6% of all new cases.
Jasmine Reed, a spokesperson for the CDC, noted that there was "a wide predictive interval posted in last week’s chart," and the downward revision was partly due to the "speed at which Omicron was increasing."
"CDC’s models have a range, and… we’re still seeing steady increase in the proportion of Omicron," Reed told Fox News Digital. "In some regions in the country, Omicron accounts for ~ 90% or more of cases."

"I would venture to say that thousands of people die in our country every month now from COVID because [Fauci’s] deemphasized the idea that there are therapeutics," Paul, who is also a physician, said in an interview on the Ron Paul Liberty Report published Monday.
Paul explained that Fauci has a long history of a "bias" toward vaccines, stretching back to his work on AIDS.
"I think Fauci is of the philosophy that vaccines are incredibly successful and are the way to go versus therapeutics, for example. So with regard to AIDS, he was involved as the AIDS epidemic came up, he wanted to develop a vaccine," he continued in the interview with his father, former Texas Rep. Ron Paul.
"There's nothing wrong with
that. He wanted to develop a vaccine. Vaccines can be great for polio or
smallpox or wonderful. It didn't actually work for AIDS." Read more and see tweet and videos here.
There's an accident in the Oval Office. Not the kind of accident left on the rug in front of the Resolute Desk on a regular basis by the untrained, rowdy dogs the Biden's sicced on the unwitting White House staff and Secret Service. I'm talking about the man who sits behind the resolute desk for his daily naps.
Joe Biden is the accidental president. He is the result of an accident of American politics.
presidency will not be remembered with an asterisk, as my friend and
fellow Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter would say. No, it will be
remembered... reviled... as the accident that it was, is and ever shall

At the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home at Menlo Park became the site of one of the deadliest outbreaks in the nation. While the facility initially underreported the death count, stating 62 died of Covid, it later acknowledged 39 additional resident deaths were due to Covid-19—making the total a staggering 101.
According to a Wall Street Journal investigation, Covid-19 positive residents were separated from dementia patients by a loosely hung piece of plastic. Moreover, employees at the facility were discouraged from using face masks in caring for patients, with one plan discussed to discipline employees over “mask insubordination.” Managers also delayed informing families of residents about the outbreak.
Now, Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration has agreed to pay $53 million to the families of 119 residents, most of whom died from Covid-19 at the state-run facilities at Menlo Park and the Paramus Veterans Memorial Homes. The payout settles claims that officials at these facilities acted with gross negligence in handling the outbreak, according to nursing home and infection control standards.
What did Jha say?
Jha — the dean of the Brown University School of Public Health and a former health expert at Harvard University — explained on ABC News' "This Week" the Omicron variant changes the game.
According to Jha, using case data to determine the severity of the pandemic is no longer reliable because Omicron appears less virulent despite being highly contagious.
"We have to do a shift. Look, for two years infections always preceded hospitalizations, which preceded deaths. So you could look at infections and know what was coming. Even through the Delta wave that was true because it was largely unvaccinated people who were getting infected," Jha explained.
"Omicron changes that. This is the shift we've been waiting for in many ways where we're moving to a phase where if you're vaccinated and particularly if you're boosted, you might get an infection. It might be a couple of days of not feeling so great, but you're going to bounce back. That's very different than what we have seen in the past," he continued. "So, I no longer think infections generally should be the major metric."

According to FACT's Executive Director Kendra Arnold, "2021 saw numerous government officials abusing their office for financial and political gain in a range of ethics cases. In a disturbing trend this year, we saw many members of Congress fail to disclose their stock transactions as federal law requires, which can conceal both conflicts of interest and wrongfully profiting from non-public information," Arnold added.
An uncompromising foe of apartheid — South Africa’s brutal regime of oppression against the Black majority — Tutu worked tirelessly, though non-violently, for its downfall.
The buoyant, blunt-spoken clergyman used his pulpit as the first Black bishop of Johannesburg and later Archbishop of Cape Town as well as frequent public demonstrations to galvanize public opinion against racial inequity both at home and globally.
Tutu's death on Sunday "is another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans who have bequeathed us a liberated South Africa," Ramaphosa said in a statement. Read more and see tweets and video here.

The lawsuit, backed by the outside group Fair Maps Maryland, was filed Thursday morning in state court. It argues that the congressional map passed by Democrats is gerrymandered in violation of the Maryland constitution.
"The 2021 Plan violates the right of Maryland citizens to choose their congressional representatives by continuing to ‘crack’ Republican voters, including Plaintiffs, into congressional districts in a way that ensures the election of Democratic representatives to Congress.," the lawsuit alleges.
The term "cracking" used in redistricting means splitting up a certain bloc of similar voters to water down their electoral power and prevent that political group from being able to elect a representative.
A report by the South Florida Sun Sentinel suggests Florida is on track to become the 22nd constitutional carry state.
Constitutional carry is a “priority” for the Republican-led Florida legislature, the Sentinel reported. Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) has already introduced legislation to do away with the concealed carry permit requirement for Floridians. Open carry without a permit would also be legalized by Sabatini’s bill.

Vladimir Putin urged the West on Thursday to move quickly to meet Russia’s demand for security guarantees precluding NATO’s expansion to Ukraine and the deployment of the military alliance’s weapons there.
Speaking during a marathon annual news conference, the Russian leader welcomed talks that are set to start in Geneva next month, but sternly warned that Moscow expects the discussion to produce quick results.
"We have clearly and precisely let them know that any further NATO expansion eastward is unacceptable," Putin said.
Last week, Moscow submitted draft security documents demanding that NATO deny membership to Ukraine and other former Soviet countries and roll back the alliance’s military deployments in Central and Eastern Europe. A key principle of the NATO alliance is that membership is open to any qualifying country.
"Is it us who are putting missiles near the U.S. borders?" Putin said. "No, it’s the U.S. who came to our home with their missiles. They are already on the threshold of our home. Is it some excessive demand not to place any offensive systems near our home?"
Ms. Pometta scooped up about four cans, which weren’t her preferred brand. She was desperate, with supplies of the food she usually bought for her dog nowhere to be found online or in stores.
Karmaa Pomeranian rescue, wasn’t as desperate. She sniffed the food and rejected it.
Ms. Pometta coaxed the dog to try it by adding beef-flavored treats, which gave Karma an upset stomach for days. After that, Ms. Pometta said she resorted to making Karma’s meals herself, cooking chicken with rice, carrots and peas on her stovetop, which Karma is happy to eat.
"It’s hard enough feeding [five] people," Ms. Pometta said, referring to her family. "I don’t want to be making dog food."
While shoppers scour stores and online vendors for videogame consoles and bicycles, pet owners like Ms. Pometta are questing after puréed fish and properly sized kibble, as supply-chain problems disrupt pet-food supplies.

In a year that included statewide and legislative matchups in New Jersey and Virginia, a gubernatorial recall contest in California, and six special congressional elections for vacant House seats, Virginia’s faceoff for governor grabbed outsized media attention from coast to coast and was arguably the most pivotal race.
For those missing in action the past two months, Glenn Youngkin, a first-time candidate who hailed from the business wing of the Republican Party, narrowly defeated former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe in a statewide contest with plenty of national implications. While Virginia gubernatorial elections are seen every four years as a likely bellwether of things to come in the ensuing midterm elections, some pundits are spotlighting what they consider the critical consequences of the 2021 results ahead of the 2022 midterms.
“I think it is absolutely dishonest,” Cruz told Fox News at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest in Phoenix. “I think the media lionizes, protects and hides Dr. Fauci.”
Cruz emphasized that Fauci has been “systematically wrong over and over and over again.” The doctor has had a change in opinion regarding mask efficacy from the beginning of the pandemic to now and has also at times doubted the likelihood that the coronavirus originated from a Chinese laboratory.
“He lied to the American people and said there’s no credible evidence that this virus escaped from a Chinese lab. That’s not true,” Cruz said. “There’s overwhelming evidence that it escaped from a Chinese lab. And very significantly, he also, by all appearances, has lied to the United States Congress."

With rising prices, escalating crime rates, and the approach of year three of a global pandemic, 7 in 10 voters think it was another bad year for the country — and over half feel it was bad for them personally.
The new Fox Business survey of registered voters finds 70 percent say 2021 was a clunker for the country. While that is better than the 78 percent who felt that way about 2020, it’s still much worse than the 38 percent who called 2019 bad.
In addition, 55 percent feel this was a bad year for them personally. That too is an improvement from a high of 67 percent last year, but a far more negative assessment than in December 2019, before the pandemic started, when just a quarter said the same (26 percent).
Overall, 19 percent of voters believe 2021 was a good year for the country while 31 percent say it was good for their family.
It's not like the Biden Presidency was breaking any records or anything (other than the daily "oldest president in history" record he sets merely by waking up). But this weekend's "It's a 'no' from me, dawg" pronouncement from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) could very well be the beginning of a very long and pitiful coda to this accident of American politics.
And while the media and erstwhile wannabe socialists across the political, academic, and entertainment spectrum insist on demonizing the West Virginia senator for literally doing exactly what he's always promised his voters he would do (remember how he ran for office in 2010 by literally using the proposed "Cap and Trade Bill" for target practice?), let's pause a moment and place the blame squarely where it really belongs: with Sen. Chuck Schumer.
Schumer possesses the agonizingly dangerous trait combination that
plagues so many American politicians; he's arrogant and incompetent. And
it's been on full display this past year. Read more and see tweet and video here.

Manchin told “Fox News Sunday” that despite having spoken with President Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., he could not reach an agreement on the legislation because of ongoing inflation, the national debt, “geopolitical unrest” and the COVID-19 pandemic.
“What he is doing is he is being a statesman,” said Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., who spoke to Fox News Digital at the Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest Conference 2021 in Phoenix, Arizona.
“It’s something that is completely lost in Washington right now,” Cawthorn added. “People believe they need to serve their state party; they need to serve the party leadership rather than serve the constituents that elected them and sent them to Washington, D.C.” Read more and see video here.
However, after the king's death Archbishop Thomas Cranmer was able to finalize said break by initiating doctrine changes that forever allied the Church of England with the Protestant Reformation. And with those changes came a banning of the open practice of Roman Catholicism throughout England. Started in 1558 and lasting until 1829, Roman Catholics were not only forbidden to practice their faith but were publicly shunned and punished...with some even being put to death...if caught practicing what was then forbidden.
And what seemed to be on the surface just a simple children's counting song about animals and such...a song whose words could easily be remembered...was to believers a song not only to be sung but to be learned from...a song that in reality was anything but simple for the song that became a carol was a child's lesson in the tenets of the Roman Catholic faith.
But first a little side note...
