"Any person holding any office or any stock in any institution in the nature of a bank for issuing or discounting bills or notes payable to bearer or order, cannot be a member of the House whilst he holds such office or stock." -- Third Congress of the United States Senate, 23rd of December, 1793, signed by the President, George Washington
Six people were have been hospitalized in an outbreak of E. coli linked to ground beef sold by the popular meal kit service HelloFresh, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports.
The public health agency put out a notice Wednesday reporting the illnesses that erupted from June 8 to August 17 of this year. Those affected were between the ages of 17 and 69 years old. No deaths were reported as part of the outbreak and none have suffered a severe condition often associated with E. coli that causes kidney failure.
The CDC reports that the number of actual illnesses is likely much higher than reported, as many people who suffer the bacterial infection will not suffer severe enough symptoms to seek out medical attention, and never get tested for it as a result.
Two Americans are alleging the FBI lost or stole their property after seizing it through a “shady” process.
“All we know is that their property was in a box and safe before the FBI broke into the box,” Joe Gay, an attorney with the nonprofit law firm Institute for Justice, told Fox News. “Once the FBI broke into the box, we honestly don’t know exactly what happened.”
“We don’t know if they lost it. We don’t know if somebody pocketed it and walked away,” he continued. “We have no way to know.”
The Institute for Justice filed two lawsuits Friday on behalf of clients who had property seized from their safety deposit boxes in a March 2021 FBI raid on U.S. Private Vaults, a Beverly Hills–based company.
After prevailing in court, and the FBI agreeing to return their property, both Don Mellein and Jeni Pearsons discovered some of their property was missing and suspect the FBI’s haphazard raid or sticky fingers are to blame.
When Tucker Carlson departed the Fox News Channel in April, his enemies cheered. But if they thought the happy warrior had finally been defeated, their judgment was as dismal as their approval ratings. With an assist from Elon Musk, Carlson is reaching an even larger, global audience with his new show, “Tucker Carlson on Twitter (now known as ‘X’).”
The veteran newscaster has expanded his mission: to defeat the mainstream media’s suffocating bias and incuriosity not just about critical events at home but in capitals around the world.
When we reach him, Carlson has just returned from the United Arab Emirates where he met with its president, Mohamed bin Zayed. Carlson pronounces the sheikh “the most interesting, wisest leader I've ever spoken to” — a provocative assessment given that the talk show host sat across from Donald J. Trump last month. Of the Arab leader, Carlson enthuses, “I've never met a more humble leader, ever — and I believe humility is a prerequisite for wisdom.”
Carlson is far less kind about his colleagues in the press. “They're all fearful people,” the 54-year-old scoffs. Instead of holding the powerful to account, “they do exactly the opposite.” Indeed, “they do their bidding.”
A video of Republican commentator Sarah Isgur speaking about the weakness of the Democrats’ presidential bench in a panel discussion on ABC News This Week was deleted from a post on X Twitter under the official This Week account.
Isgur had observed that the Democrat leadership is old and that the younger Democrats are thought by Democrat voters to not be ready for prime time. The post is still up with the now deleted video and has over 1.4 million views.
Isgur, a former Trump DOJ spokeswoman, cited a new ABC News/Washington Post poll that has President Trump beating Joe Biden 52 percent to 42 percent that also shows nearly two-thirds of Democrats do not want the 80-year-old Biden to run again but that Democrats have no one in the wings that they want to replace Biden on the ticket, with Kamala Harris topping the field at just 8 percent..
Former Trump White House lawyer Stefan Passantino sued crooked prosecutor Andrew Weissmann for defamation over a tweet claiming that Passantino “coached” January 6 witness Cassidy Hutchinson to lie under oath.
The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in DC. Passantino is seeking damages in excess of $75,000.
Recall that Cassidy Hutchinson falsely testified Trump lunged at a Secret Service Agent on January 6.
Cassidy Hutchinson said Trump got into “the beast” after his speech at the Ellipse on January 6 with the belief that he would be driven to the Capitol.
House Republicans provided a shocking update Friday on the progress of their corruption investigations into President Joe Biden and his family.
Previously, House GOP leaders said investigators had uncovered what they believed was about $20 million in allegedly improper and illicit payments flowing into the pockets of various Biden family members, including a potential bribe of then-Vice President Joe Biden.
But it turns out that figure was woefully short, apparently.
“Republican lawmakers recently predicted their investigation into the Biden family could prove the Biden business raked in more than $50 million, about $30 million more than bank records show thus far,” Breitbart News reported on Saturday.
Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) told Fox News: “Based on the evidence I’ve seen so far, I think the number is going to be north of $50 million that we’re talking about here.”
The speaker of Canada’s House of Commons apologized Sunday for recognizing a man who fought for a Nazi military unit during World War II.
Just after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered an address in the House of Commons on Friday, Canadian lawmakers gave 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka a standing ovation when Speaker Anthony Rota drew attention to him. Rota introduced Hunka as a war hero who fought for the First Ukrainian Division.
“In my remarks following the address of the President of Ukraine, I recognized an individual in the gallery. I have subsequently become aware of more information which causes me to regret my decision to do so,” Rota said in a statement.
He added that his fellow Parliament members and the Ukraine delegation were not aware of his plan to recognize Hunka. Rota noted Hunka is from his district.
For 15 years, the Romeike family has lived in Morristown. Uwe Romeike, the father of the seven Romeike children, works as a piano accompanist at Carson-Newman University. Now, they say, the U.S. government is trying to deport them.
The family moved to the U.S. from Germany in 2008. Their application for asylum said they were fined by the German government roughly $9,000 after homeschooling their children, court documents show.
An immigration judge initially granted the family's application for asylum. The U.S. Department of Justice appealed the decision, and the U.S. Board of Immigration Appeals revoked the family's asylum status, documents show.
The family, with the help of the U.S. Home School Defense Association, appealed to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel unanimously ruled against the family.
"They have not shown that Germany's enforcement of its general school-attendance law amounts to persecution against them," Judge Jeffrey Sutton wrote for the court.
Pornographic websites now have to verify the age of their users in several states, yet some advocates are claiming that the laws not only invade user privacy, but are also difficult — if not impossible — to enforce.
A former teacher and youth hockey coach in Carlsbad, California was sentenced to almost 16 years in prison after he was found guilty on Tuesday for playing a role in baiting children into sending sexually explicit images and circulated them online.
A grassroots campaign in the U.K., fronted by Sharron Davies, plans to ask politicians a simple question: What is a woman? They’ll record the answers and create a website so voters can see where their representatives stand on the definition of a woman.
The former England cricket captain was 'lucky to be alive' after his open-topped three-wheel 130mph Morgan Super 3 car, which had no air bags, flipped over on December 13 last year, leaving him with severe facial injuries and several broken ribs.
Following Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's decision to peel back the dress code for Senate members, Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman has decided to take full advantage, sporting hooded sweatshirts and athletic shorts in one of the most powerful places in the world. As a result, New York Post reporter John Levine decided to see if that same dress code would fly in some of the nicest restaurants in The Big Apple.
The recent move by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to ditch the Senate dress code for lawmakers has earned bipartisan backlash, and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is taking action.
In a flyby of Earth, the Osiris-Rex spacecraft released the sample capsule from 63,000 miles (100,000 kilometers) out. The small capsule landed four hours later on a remote expanse of military land, as the mothership set off after another asteroid.
Scientists estimate the capsule holds at least a cup of rubble from the carbon-rich asteroid known as Bennu, but won´t know for sure until the container is opened. Some spilled and floated away when the spacecraft scooped up too much and rocks jammed the container´s lid during collection three years ago.
A new study funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms that aluminum compounds found in childhood vaccines are linked to an array of illnesses, including neurological disorders, asthma, and the Big A: autism.
Though the study's authors tried their best to minimize the link, they were unable to sidestep a "positive association" between "vaccine-related aluminum exposure" and "persistent asthma" in children aged 24-59 months. Overall, children in the study who received 3 milligrams (mg) or more of vaccine-related aluminum had a 36 percent higher risk than children who took other vaccines to develop persistent asthma.
Note that a true vaccine-free placebo was not used in the study so as to make aluminum appear less damaging than it actually is. Had the study authors compared vaccinated children to unvaccinated children, the health risks associated with aluminum exposure would have been even more striking.
Some 326,991 children born between 2008 and the end of 2014 were jabbed at one of seven different sites across the United States that participate in the Vaccine Safety Datalink, a network of health providers partnered with the CDC. Researchers gathered this data then looked at aluminum exposure in comparison to eczema prevalence.
"If there's any relationship between aluminum and asthma, it could look different in kids with eczema than kids without eczema," said Dr. Matthew F. Daley, one of the study's lead authors.
Daley and his colleagues then looked to see how many jabs each child received before age two, as well as aluminum exposure. Using these data points, they were able to make an assessment of disease risk in correlation to the amount of aluminum injected in a child's body.

A 75-year-old woman has revealed she was forced to move into a van where she uses a small stove as a heater because she can't afford rent, despite working full time.
Lindy is an Arizona-based senior who has faced the consequences of soaring inflation and rising costs of living as she has adapted to a life on wheels in her 2013 Chevy van.
The senior living in poverty - who has one son who isn't helping her because she is 'too independent' - has shared a look into her life in the car and why she has to work 'in order to survive.'
In an interview with the unnamed host of the YouTube account, The Glorious Life on Wheels, Lindy shared how she couldn't qualify for social security and the detrimental effects living in poverty has had on her.
