Rivera, who holds the record for most saves all-time and won five World Series championships, made it into Cooperstown on his first try as did Halladay, who died in a 2017 plane crash.

    Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and minority leader Chuck Schumer have agreed to a deal that could end the partial government shutdown, which entered its 32nd day Tuesday. Under the deal, the Senate will vote Thursday on two bills intended to end the shutdown. One bill includes President Trump’s request for $5.7 billion to construct a wall at the southern border, and one would fund the government entities affected by the shutdown through February 8, kicking the fight down the road until then. “People are saying isn’t there a way out of this mess, isn’t there a way to relieve...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told Fox News' "Your World with Neil Cavuto" on Tuesday that he would have no objections to President Trump delivering a State of the Union address in the House of Representatives on Jan. 29, despite House speaker Nancy Pelosi's repeated threats that the traditional speech be delayed. [cut] Hoyer, in an apparent break with Pelosi, seemingly had no problems with allowing Trump to speak. "Sure," Hoyer responded, when asked if he'd be open to Trump speaking in person in the House for the State of the Union.

    An Ivy League professor bashed "the smiling face of Whiteness" in response to the recent controversy involving an interaction between a Native American man and a Catholic teenage supporter of President Donald Trump. “Whiteness endlessly forgives its own transgressions,” University of Pennsylvania associate professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomaswrote on Sunday about the confrontation between Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and Native American Nathan Phillips. “It rarely, if ever, gives those of us it harms and maims and kills time to process our motions [sic].” According to Thomas, the “smiling face of Whiteness” is one that “always hides a knife...

    Three residents of Lansing, Michigan, were arrested without incident Monday afternoon for conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, namely the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan charged all three in a criminal complaint filed today in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The conspiracy charge is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison. Members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) arrested Muse Abdikadir Muse (Muse Muse) at the Gerald R.

    Pope Francis’s Parade of Embarrassing Friendships The least we can say is that the figure of Pope Bergoglio is embarrassing. Perhaps not so much for who he is as a person in himself – but then again… But more so for the people whom he obviously favors, protects, and defends. Or for those who actively contributed to his election.Let’s begin with this last group. Among them there are Cardinal Danneels, immortalized as the one standing next to the pontiff on the loggia on the night of his election. Danneels covered up a bishop who had abused his own nephew, and...

    Native American activist Nathan Phillips wants to meet with Pope Francis following the incident with Covington Catholic High School students from Kentucky whom Phillips confronted last Friday in Washington, D.C. in an incident that went viral over the weekend. Phillips garnered national attention when he peddled a false story of being threatened by the boys when it turned out Phillips had approached the boys, banging a drum and chanting, positioning himself mere inches in front of one boy who stood silently and did not move, except to smile.

    An international team of researchers has found evidence of dopamine in the brain playing a role in the pleasure people feel when they listen to music. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes experiments they carried out with volunteers who were given a dopamine precursor or antagonist and what they found. People are known to experience a range of emotions when listening to music, from annoyance to euphoria. And while researchers have long believed that at least some of the pleasure people derive from listening to music is tied to an increase...

    A plurality of U.S. voters point to immigration as the most important issue facing the country, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Tuesday. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said that they see immigration as their top issue – more than the 36 percent who said health care is the most important matter in the country. The findings come as a deadlock between President Trump and congressional Democrats over funding for a border wall drags a partial government shutdown into its fifth week. The findings also suggests that the topic of immigration could play an outsize...

    “On behalf of President Donald Trump and all the American people, let me express the unwavering support of the United States as you, the people of Venezuela, raise your voices in a call for freedom,” Pence said in a recorded video message. “Nicolas Maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power. He has never won the presidency in a free and fair election, and has maintained his grip on power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him.”

    The government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan rushed a financial agreement between Turkey and Qatar through Parliament for approval ahead of his decision to turn over a $20 billion tank and pallet factory to a company run jointly by his associates and the Qatari army. The deal, the avoidance of double taxation agreement, came just in the nick of time before the ErdoÄŸan government presented a multibillion-dollar national tank factory on a silver platter to Turkish-Qatari armored vehicle manufacturer BMC, a company run by Ethem Sancak, a member of the MKYK executive body of the ruling Justice and Development...

    CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers bizarrely claimed on Monday that Covington Catholic High School students referred to a black classmate as a racial slur with silent hand gestures to their harassers — who were actually saying the word. The alleged gesture occurred in the lead up to a confrontation between some of the school’s students and a Native American activist on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during Friday’s March for Life event in Washington, D.C. Initial video of a confrontation between Covington Catholic High School junior Nick Sandmann and Native American activist Nathan Phillips created...

    BuzzFeed News has obtained files that the news outlet says contradict President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's recent claims that there were "no plans" drawn up for Trump Tower Moscow. The online outlet reported on the files on Tuesday, after Giuliani in a New Yorker interview claimed that plans for Trump Tower Moscow did not extend beyond "a letter of intent." "The only thing that ever happened was that [Trump's team] submitted a letter of intent about a possible project in Moscow that never went beyond that," Giuliani said. "No money was ever paid, no plans were ever made. There...

    In anticipation of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which the public may or may not get to see, leftist Democrats have escalated the conflict. The original charge was that candidate Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election. That was later stepped up to “cooperation,” and now Donald Trump as a full-blown Russian agent under control of the Kremlin. As Johnny Rivers might say, Trump is Russia’s secret agent man, allegedly proved by Trump meeting with Putin, pondering an exit from NATO, firing James Comey and such. As he dealt with this charge on the January 15 “Ingraham...

    NEW YORK — Today’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. national holiday is the perfect occasion to ask: Is President Donald J. Trump more like Dr. King or more akin to former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke?The answer from the media/Democrat/Left (excuse the redundancy) is crystal clear: Duke!“This president has said and done so many insensitive and bigoted and racist things that if you support him, people like me want to understand why you ignored so much in order to support this man,” CNN anchor Don Lemon foamed at the mouth last week. “You may not think you are a...

    The question of how quickly the universe is expanding has been bugging astronomers for almost a century. Different studies keep coming up with different answers—which has some researchers wondering if they've overlooked a key mechanism in the machinery that drives the cosmos. Now, by pioneering a new way to measure how quickly the cosmos is expanding, a team led by UCLA astronomers has taken a step toward resolving the debate. The group's research is published today in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.At the heart of the dispute is the Hubble constant, a number that relates distances to the...

    Does anyone maintain a comprehensive list (wiki?) of all the times we've heard it breathlessly announced that FINALLY, at LAST, PDJT's political career is toast? The latest from a few days ago (which had a near record-breaking shelf-life of only a bit more than a day), was that Impeccably Reliable Sources had proof of DJT suborning perjury from Cohen. Last Nov, his imminent demise was announced when the Dems won back the House, as it would quickly lead to impeachment, followed by conviction in the Senate. And there were a number of others in between those last two. Here are...

    ver the course of the past 72 hours, students at Covington Catholic High School have been met with death threats, doxxing, and defamation. One video - taken completely out of context - has completely changed the lives of the boys of Covington Catholic. They've been labeled racists and white supremacists - even baby bigots. However, as this episode has played out, new videos have emerged, directly in conflict with the narrative of the mainstream media. It was not the students from Covington who approached the Native American. It was the Native American who approached the students from Covington. It was...
