The mass shooting in Buffalo on Saturday in which a white gunman allegedly targeted black grocery shoppers shows that white Americans must do more “to come to terms with their own appeasement” of racism, according to a CNN reporter. Nia-Malika Henderson, who covers politics for the all-news cable network, said racism in America is a “white cultural problem.”She was speaking on Tuesday after President Biden traveled to western New York to visit the site of the shooting that killed 10 people. The alleged gunman, 18-year-old Payton Gendron, cited the so-called “replacement theory” as a motive for the shootings. During an appearance on Tuesday’s “Inside Politics,” Henderson said racism was a “white cultural problem” and that white Americans ought to take the lead in combating prejudice. Henderson made the remarks on Tuesday during a broadcast of CNN’s “Inside Politics.” Corbis via Getty Images“It is really a white cultural problem that white Americans have to come to terms with.

Executives at CNN plan to give anchor Chris Wallace a Sunday evening show on the network after its subscription-based streaming service, which he was previously hired to work for, was abruptly shuttered last month. Wallace left his longtime gig hosting “Fox News Sunday” late last year to join CNN as it launched the short-lived subscription-based streaming service CNN+. Wallace’s show on CNN+, “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace,” will now be available on HBO Max, the company said, with portions of the interviews he conducts with various newsmakers broadcast on CNN on Sunday evenings. Since CNN+ shuttering, questions have surrounded Wallace’s future and the editorial direction of CNN, which is now led by new president Chris Licht, who began in the role this month. “Part of the CNN brand is respectful, authentic and impactful interviews and one of the best interviewers in the business is Chris Wallace,” Licht said in an announcement sent by the network during Wednesday’s upfront presentation.

Chris Wallace left a Sunday show on Fox News Channel to jump into the world of streaming at CNN. Wallace will take the reins of a new Sunday program on CNN, the network announced Wednesday during an upfront presentation for its parent company, Warner Bros. He will essentially reprise the program he had been doing for CNN+, a one-on-one talk program called “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” that will also appear on the company’s large HBO Max streaming service. Wallace will continue to serve as an anchor for CNN, which he joined in January 2022 after anchoring Fox News Sunday for nearly two decades. CNN declined to offer further comment on its programming plans, but observers acknowledge that its Sunday newsmagazine could be an ambitious but challenging effort.

Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) spoke with Fox & Friends about the crisis at the southern border; Gonzales says, to fix the border, we need serious policy changes —and that starts with the White House. Gonzales says it’s “100% an open border” and says we need to keep Title 42 in place. “Title 42 has to stay in place. You know, over half of those expulsions were due to Title 42,” he said. And it’s dangerous.”More than 230,000 migrant encounters were logged at the southern border in April —a DHS record.

NYT explains that lockdowns, compliance, masks, travel restrictions plus harsh and universal vaccine mandates are the best way, citing Australia. https://t.co/rJTFTXkFa5 — Jeffrey A Tucker (@jeffreyatucker) May 15, 2022According to the NYT, Australia and the U.S. are highly similar countries. It downplays one notable policy implemented by the island during the COVID-19 pandemic: shutting down its border for nearly two whole years. According to Worldometer, Australia ranks 84th out of 229 countries, territories and other entities in COVID-19 death rate. There are various reasons scientists believe Africa wasn’t as devastated by the pandemic as expected.

A Wisconsin Middle Schooler accused of “sexual harassment” for misgendering a peer is now worried the allegation could hurt his chances of being admitted to college years in the future. Watch the latest video at foxnews.comFrom Fox News:A Wisconsin middle schooler, who is accused of sexual harassment for misgendering a classmate, said he is afraid for his future if the Title IX violation is not removed from his record. Rosemary Rabidoux told Fox News Digital she received a phone call from the school’s principal saying she would be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against her son, Braden. “I immediately thought, ‘sexual harassment, that’s rape, that’s incest, that’s inappropriate touching, even grotesque language could go that far.’ And when I asked him what my son did, he said that he did not use the correct pronouns,” she said. Braden is one of three Wisconsin students facing sexual harassment charges from their middle school over accusations they used incorrect pronouns when addressing a fellow student.

“Before continuing, I want to say something to all those who are currently considering abortion care. “Unfortunately, Roe and Casey remain under constant threat, resulting in an ongoing crisis in access to abortion and other vital health care services. Over the last decade, state legislatures have passed hundreds of bills designed to block individuals from accessing abortion care. “Furthermore, if the leaked draft opinion becomes the Court’s actual decision, it would exacerbate an already-dire crisis in abortion care access. Instead, Congress must act to ensure that every woman, regardless of geographic location, income, race, or any other factor, retains her constitutional right to access abortion.

According to a report made public Tuesday, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, says that Joe Biden’s botched Afghanistan troop withdrawal destroyed morale, resulting in a swift Taliban takeover of the country. Advertisement“SIGAR found that the single most important factor in the ANDSF’s (Afghan National Defense and Security Forces) collapse in August 2021 was the U.S. decision to withdraw military forces and contractors from Afghanistan through signing the U.S.-Taliban agreement in February 2020 under the Trump administration, followed by President Biden’s withdrawal announcement in April 2021,” the report said. “Limiting airstrikes after the signing of the U.S.-Taliban agreement the following year left the ANDSF without a key advantage in keeping the Taliban at bay,” John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, said, according to the report. “Many Afghans thought the U.S.-Taliban agreement was an act of bad faith and a signal that the U.S. was handing over Afghanistan to the enemy as it rushed to exit the country,” Sopko added. “One more year, or five more years, of U.S. military presence would not have made a difference if the Afghan military cannot or will not hold its own country,” Biden said in August 2021.

Virginia-class Submarine Spotted Transiting the Panama Canal – Every year approximately 13,000 to 14,000 ships transit the Panama Canal. Unlike the longer Suez Canal, which was built at sea level, the Panama Canal consists of artificial lakes, several improved and artificial channels, and three sets of locks – with a dozen locks in total. The artificial Alajuela Lake (known during the American era as Madden Lake) also acts as a reservoir for the canal. In the interwar era, the canal proved vital to the United States Navy’s two-ocean policy, and the Panama Canal remained under U.S. control until the 1977 Torrijos-Carter Treaties provided for a handover to Panama. In fact, the Navy’s Iowa-class of fast battleships – which included BB-62 and BB-63 – was the largest U.S. military warships designed to utilize the canal.
