NEW DELHI (AP) – India’s ruling Hindu nationalist party has approved legislation in the country’s most populous state that lays out a prison term of up to 10 years for anyone found guilty of using marriage to force someone to change religion.
ATLANTA (AP) – Just like that, the Atlanta Hawks transformed themselves into a playoff contender.
A team that averaged less than 25 wins the last three seasons added to its impressive young core with a whirlwind of free-agent signings, capped by the news late Tuesday that Sacramento would not match …
At best, President Donald Trump’s exit from the White House is ungraceful. At some point, it becomes disgraceful. And then dangerous. In fact, it already has.For example, our nation is not in a good place with the pandemic; no one could credibly argue otherwise. Whether a different president could have done a better job of handling the virus is no longer important. What is important is a smooth transition of our virus response between the administration that got us where we are and the administration that has to see us through the pandemic. This is not happening.But other dangerous things are …
The Late Show host traveled down to Washington, D.C. this week to sit down, at a healthy distance, with former President Barack Obama and talk about his new best-selling memoir A Promised Landand the perilous state of American democracy in the last days of President Donald Trump.
“I just want to take a moment to drink you in for just a moment,” Colbert said early in the interview. “Because I’m having to get used to looking at a president again. I’ve gotten out of the habit. I have to warm up for Joe Biden. I don’t want to pull anything when I see him take the oath of office.”

SEATTLE (AP) – Nicolas Lodeiro scored early in the first half, Raul Ruidiaz added a second midway through the second, and the defending champion Seattle Sounders beat depleted Los Angeles FC 3-1 on Tuesday night in the opening round of the MLS Cup playoffs.
LOS ANGELES (AP) – With California desperately battling an out-of-control coronavirus surge, the state’s health secretary is urging families to avoid gathering for Thanksgiving and Los Angeles County appeared on the brink of issuing a stay-home order to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed.
In Oregon, you can have cocaine, but not cranberries. Heroin, but no ham. Meth, but not mashed potatoes! Amazingly, a state that just legalized drugs wants to criminalize Thanksgiving! Talk about a double helping of hypocrisy—just in time for the holidays.
Of course, Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, wasn’t exactly winning any popularity contests as it was. Now, after her ridiculous orders—which would force families of seven or more to turn away their own children from the meal—she’s become a national punchline.
So let me get this straight, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, tweeted: “You can be jailed for having too many people over for Thanksgiving. But if you want to riot and loot in Portland, no sweat!”
That’s right, Jason Rantz mocked. “In Oregon, they’re tougher on families than they are on Antifa!”
The optics certainly aren’t great for the state—threatening criminal sanctions against people for eating turkey together, when they let locals shoot themselves up with killer drugs. And yet, Brown didn’t shy away from the harsh rhetoric. “I am not asking you [to limit gatherings],” the governor said last week. “I am ordering you.”
Charles Boyle, the governor’s spokesperson, was just as threatening. “If people aren’t going to take this virus seriously, we are prepared to offer consequences.” And those consequences, they aren’t shy to say, include jail time.
>>> What’s the best way for America to reopen and return to business? The National Coronavirus Recovery Commission, a project of The Heritage Foundation, assembled America’s top thinkers to figure that out. So far, it has made more than 260 recommendations. Learn more here.
It’s not the government’s business to tell Americans how they can set their Thanksgiving tables—or if you can set it for that matter.
It might make more sense if they showed half as much care about people’s lives when it comes to drug addiction or the sexually transmitted disease pandemic. You don’t see Brown racing to stop the risky sexual activity that’s infecting 20 million new people each year and costing taxpayers $16 billion to treat. People die from that too.
And what does the left say? “Stay out of our bedrooms.” Fine, then it’s time they get out of our dining rooms!
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) – Declaring “America is back,” President-elect Joe Biden introduced his national security team, his first substantive offering of how he’ll shift from Trump-era “America First” policies by relying on experts from the Democratic establishment to be some of his most important advisers.
NEW YORK (AP) – With police brutality continuing to devastate Black families and the coronavirus ravishing Black America disproportionately, the world was driven to the significance of this year’s Juneteenth more than ever before.
