Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams says that she will “likely” run for political office again after her two failed gubernatorial campaigns against Republican Brian Kemp.

Without specifying exactly what position she would run for, Abrams told Drew Barrymore on her daytime talk show that she will be back again.

“I will likely run again,” Abrams said. “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. If it doesn’t work, you try again.”

Despite her two losses, Democrats still consider Abrams a rock star for her fundraising skills and her get-out-the-vote apparatus in the state of Georgia.

“My first responsibility is to make sure anyone who wants to vote can,” she told Barrymore. “Protecting democracy is not about a person. It’s about the ideals.”

President Biden's taxpayer-funded wall for his Delaware vacation home is getting while he continues to voice his staunch opposition to building a wall at the southern U.S. border.

Photos obtained exclusively by the Daily Mail show construction on the wall around Biden's Rehoboth Beach, Delaware home began last week. The wall is expected to cost taxpayers $490,324 because its being funded through a government contract through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The photos show the ongoing construction of tall white fencing and gray stone pillars on the side of Biden's home, with a half-wall of gray stone and a large black iron gate at the front of the property.

Looks like we will finally get the full story on what really happened on January 6th. Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Charlie Kirk today on Kirk’s radio show that the new Republican Congress will unveil the hidden J6 tapes.

Gaetz told Charlie Kirk that releasing the tapes “would give more full context to that day rather than the cherry-picked moments of the January 6th committee.”  He further explained this is one example of the deal made with Kevin McCarthy to provide the American people the truth rather than the lies propagated by the Biden Regime.

When Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Nov. 18 that he had named a special prosecutor to investigate former President Donald Trump's handling of classified documents found at the Mar-a-Lago compound, the government harbored a fresh secret: The current president, Joe Biden, had a similar problem.

Just two weeks earlier, Biden's lawyers disclosed to government lawyers on Nov. 2 — just six days before the midterm elections — that they had found sensitive government documents with classified markings inside an office that Biden used at the Penn Biden Center think tank in Washington after he left office as Barack Obama's vice president.

The public was kept in the dark about the startling discovery until Monday, when the White House confirmed it was cooperating with an investigation launched by the Justice Department at the request of the same National Archives that has tussled with Trump over the last year.

The belated disclosure turned the political tables on Biden, who sharply criticized Trump for his document debacle last fall, while also raising troubling new questions that will be need to be answered by a U.S. Attorney in Illinois and Congress.

Border Patrol agents in just one sector of the besieged southern border arrested three convicted sex offenders in the space of four days, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced this week.

The apprehensions all took place in the Del Rio Sector of the border and began on Jan 2., when agents apprehended a 45-year-old Mexican national with a prior conviction for indecency with a child. 

He had been sentenced and later deported in 2005 for the crime. Agents encountered him coming across among a group of six migrants trying to sneak past agents inside a rail yard.

House Republicans and Democrats on Tuesday joined forces and voted overwhelmingly in favor of a new committee to examine U.S. strategic competition with China, after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy declared on the House floor that neither Republicans nor Democrats trust China anymore.

"We spent decades passing policies that welcomed China into the global system," McCarthy said. "In return, China has exported oppression, aggression and anti-Americanism. Today, the power of its military and economy are growing at the expense of freedom and democracy worldwide."

"It didn’t start under this administration, but the current administration has clearly made it worse," McCarthy said. "Its policies have weakened our economy and made us more vulnerable to the threat of the CCP."

Monday marked the opening day for the 56th Legislative Session, but before getting down to business, the Arizona Freedom Caucus (AFC) and a group of Republican Legislators from the House and Senate met with the press to state they would be filing a lawsuit against newly-inaugurated Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs (D).

“It’s become a modern phenomenon for Executive Branches across the country to try and legislate via executive order. We saw it with Barack Obama. We see it now with Joe Biden. And now, seemingly, Katie Hobbs, she also believes that she has the ability to legislate with the power of the pen, attempting to create law that simply does not exist,” State Sen. Jake Hoffman (R-Queen Creek), said, leading the conference.

Hobbs signed Executive Order 2023-01 on January 2nd, which outlined furthering anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ state employees and contractors. The next day, Hobbs unveiled the “First 100 Days Initiative,” which includes an alleged 100 actions Hobbs will take as Governor.

The AFC took issue with this first Executive Order, stating Hobbs was using this order to push her “woke agenda.”

“The people of Arizona did not elect Katie Hobbs to rule by executive fiat,” Hoffman said. “Yet sadly for our state, Katie feels, just as she’s shown a propensity for during her time as Secretary of State, that she is above the law and does not need to follow the laws this legislature passes. That is wrong.”

House Democrats are downplaying the discovery of several classified documents at the Penn Biden Center from when President Biden was vice president and told Fox News there is "no comparison" to former President Trump’s classified documents at Mar-a-Lago.

Fox News asked several Democratic lawmakers Tuesday to weigh in on the discovery of a batch of records dating back to the Obama administration, including a "small number of documents with classified markings" that were discovered at the Penn Biden Center by the president's personal attorneys Nov. 2, according to Richard Saubel, special counsel to the White House.

The attorneys found the documents in a locked closet while preparing to vacate office space at the center, which the president used from mid-2017 until he began the 2020 campaign.

Republican Indiana Rep. Lorissa Sweet introduced legislation Tuesday that would ban child gender transitions.

The bill would block medical professionals from subjecting minors to procedures or activities that change, affirm or enforce a child’s gender identity when that identity is different from his or her biological sex. Child gender transitions, including social transitions, medications and surgeries, remain legal in most states, though a handful of conservative states have cracked down on the procedures in recent years.

Scientists may have solved a longstanding puzzle about the origins of a mysterious element on the Moon with the help of lunar samples that were returned to Earth by a Chinese mission in 2020, reports a new study. 

China’s Chang’e-5 mission wowed the world two years ago when it became the first spacecraft in decades to land on the Moon, collect samples, and safely deliver them back to Earth. The probe was able to scoop up about 1,700 grams of lunar dirt from an unexplored region that was volcanically active within the past two billion years, making it one of the youngest parts of the Moon’s surface. 

The pristine extraterrestrial pebbles contain globules of ferric iron (Fe3+), a version of iron that contains oxygen, which was previously assumed to be rare on the Moon because the lunar surface is chemically “reductive,” meaning that it is not easy for oxidized compounds to form.

In a moment with some eery similarities to the Damar Hamlin incident earlier this week, Los Angeles Rams rookie Russ Yeast was sent to the hospital on Sunday after suffering a pulmonary contusion.

The events of the Week 17 “Monday Night Football” game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals made national headlines. Second-year player Damar Hamlin suffered a serious blow to his chest while making a tackle on Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. The hit is believed to have caused a Commotio Cordis and sent the defensive back into cardiac arrest.

Few will be able to forget the field at Paycor Stadium being filled with players and an ambulance entering the field to take Hamlin to the hospital after needing to be resuscitated on the field. Fortunately for Hamlin, after being in intensive care for several days, his health has remarkably improved and is likely to return to a normal life after the near-death incident.

The situation was highly emotional for Bills players and many athletes and officials around the NFL, so it made the injury to rookie Russ Yeast on Sunday scarier than it probably needed to be because of its similarities to Hamlin’s.

During the Los Angles Rams’ overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks this weekend, Russ Yeast — who was filling in for Nick Scott — was knocked out of the game with what was called a chest injury. While he was listed as questionable to return, he never did.
