Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday that his focus was on “stopping” President Biden's administration, citing the unity in his caucus. One hundred percent of my focus is on stopping this new administration,” McConnell said during a press conference in Kentucky when asked if he was concerned that Republicans who acknowledged Biden as the rightful winner of the 2020 election could face political liabilities. One hundred percent of my focus is on standing up to this administration,” McConnell continued.

A small North Carolina town voted Tuesday to get rid of its police department in favor of what officials say will be a cost-saving contract with the local sheriff's office. The Mocksville Town Board voted unanimously during a public meeting Tuesday night to disband the police and contract with the Davie County Sheriff's Office for future law enforcement services — a move officials said will save the town $1.3 million over the next three years. “They are using the budgetary issue to get rid of the police department for other reasons that started long before the budget was on the table.”
The Biden administration on Monday reiterated that the Dakota Access oil pipeline should continue to operate while the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conducts an extensive environmental review, although the Corps said again that it could change its mind. The Standing Rock Sioux and other tribes have filed for an injunction asking U.S. District Judge James Boasberg to shut down the pipeline while the Corps conducts a second review, expected to be completed by March 2022. “It is possible that in the EIS process the Corps would find new information," the document stated, referring to the environmental impact statement, “but to date the Corps is not aware of information that would cause it to evaluate the injunction factors differently than in its previous filing.”
Just a few weeks ago, Representative Liz Cheney survived her vote to impeach Donald Trump for his actions instigating the riotous events of January 6. Former President Donald Trump is clearly enjoying the prospect of Cheney's demotion, and there's no doubt he'll be taking phone calls from potential Cheney primary challengers in 2022. A Cheney spokesperson put out a statement in response: “This is about whether the Republican Party is going to perpetuate lies about the 2020 election and attempt to whitewash what happened on January 6.”

The Justice Department is appealing a federal judge's decision to vacate the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's temporary federal eviction moratorium, which had been extended multiple times since being enacted by the Trump administration last fall. The CDC under the Biden administration had sought to extend the eviction moratorium through June 30. D.C. District Judge Dabney Friedrich ruled Wednesday on the side of the plaintiffs, who alleged that the CDC overstepped its authority by extending the eviction moratorium — which was first included in the March CARES Act passed by Congress — to all residential properties nationwide.
A Florida man who is seen in a widely shared Facebook photo smiling while holding up a distressed shark said he isn't the one who caught the fish and feels bad about posing with it. “I've never seen one before,” Joseph Wilson told the Citrus County Chronicle. After Wilson posted the photo on Facebook, the Real Florida hunting and fishing page shared the disturbing snap with the caption, “What's going on in Florida?” with a wide-eyed emoji.

Sheri Gouveia was shooting a video of her daughter playing in the ocean at Kalama Beach on Oahu at the time, Hawaii News Now reported. Gouveia told Hawaii News Now her daughter has “angels to keep her safe.”
A federal judge has ruled that former Attorney General William Barr was “disingenuous” about the process behind his decision to issue a memo clearing then-President Trump on obstruction of justice charges. At issue is a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking, among other things, a Justice Department memo that Barr said helped guide his decision to declare that the evidence described in special counsel Robert Mueller's report on his investigation into Trump did not support a charge of obstruction, even leaving aside the policy against indicting a sitting president. The DOJ had refused to give the March 24, 2019, memorandum to a government transparency group, saying the document represented the private advice of lawyers — before any formal decision had been made — and was therefore exempt from disclosure.
George Conway warned that an investigation by the FBI into the business dealings of Donald Trump's former attorney, Rudy Giuliani, indicates that the former New York mayor seems to be in “deep s***”. Mr Conway, a conservative attorney and husband of Kellyanne Conway — a former counsellor of Mr Trump — was talking to The Daily Beast's “The New Abnormal” podcast on the topic of the former president's baseless allegations of election fraud, before discussing the FBI investigation of Mr Giuliani. It follows twin raids on the former presidential attorney's apartment and office, with federal investigators seizing computers and cellphones.
El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele has a 90 percent popularity rate in his country, perhaps the highest one in the region. On May 1, Bukele's New Ideas Party's congressional majority fired five key members of the Supreme Court and the country's attorney general, in what most legal scholars agree was an unconstitutional move. The Supreme Court had ruled several times that Bukele, 39, had overstepped his executive powers, and the ousted attorney general was investigating Bukele's ministers for alleged corruption.
Our drive thru is faster than Chick-Fil-As,” the jewelry store began advising passing traffic in April. The owner, Jeff Dennis, posted a picture of the updated sign to the store's Facebook page.

Gov. Ron DeSantis expects late this month to reinstate a requirement that people in the unemployment system submit weekly “work search” updates. Referring to some businesses saying they are unable to find new employees as they regroup from the COVID-19 pandemic, DeSantis said Wednesday unemployment claimants will likely have to start showing how they looked for work once an executive order waiving a work-search requirement ends May 29. “We suspended that last year at this time because, quite frankly, there weren't jobs,” DeSantis said during an appearance at the Satellite Beach Police Department.
This month, actor and comedienne Amanda Seales has come forward to share her disappointment about Vice President Kamala Harris agreeing with Tim Scott that America isn't a racist country.

Scott said they boarded a flight for Fort Lauderdale on Friday and Orion was wearing his mask when an airline employee told them to leave the plane at the captain's request, according to the station.
