Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul was the victim of a violent attack in 2017 when his neighbor slammed into him from behind outside his Kentucky home. Earlier that year, Paul took cover when a gunman opened fire while GOP members of Congress practiced for a charity baseball game. Paul revived those traumatic events in his bid for reelection this year, with an incendiary social media video attacking his Democratic challenger, Charles Booker.
Greene, who recently made headlines for saying Pride Month “needs to end,” has previously targeted the transportation secretary with bizarre and nonsensical homophobia. In March, she told Trump rally attendees in Georgia that “Pete Buttigieg can take his electric vehicles and his bicycles, and he and his husband can stay out of our girls' bathrooms. The following month, she said that “mom and dad have been replaced by Chasten and Pete Buttigieg and their designer babies.
There's not much that can send a grizzly bear running scared — especially not a mother with cubs in tow — but a nature guide recently witnessed just that, and it's only the second most surprising thing he saw that day. As many as 13 wolverines were gathered, chasing a grizzly and three cubs across the steep, rugged terrain of the Grand Tetons, according to an Oct. 2 Facebook post by ecotourism agency Yellowstone Insight. Doug MacCartney snapped pictures of the distant figures rushing through a band of snow on Aug. 8, the post said.
A South Korean ballistic missile malfunctioned and crashed into the ground early Wednesday during a live-fire drill with the United States, panicking confused residents of a coastal city already uneasy over increasingly provocative weapons tests by rival North Korea. The sound of the blast and subsequent fire led many in Gangneung to believe it could be a North Korean attack, concern that only grew as the military and government officials provided no explanation about the explosion for hours.
Lizzo made history last week when she played a 200-year-old flute once owned by former President James Madison. Now, the singer has been presented with a new opportunity: to perform at Madison's home. The Virginia house, called Montpelier, is a museum and memorial to the former president, who led the nation from 1809 to 1817.
The U.S. and South Korea are responding to a missile launch from North Korea that flew over northern Japan. CBS News foreign correspondent Elizabeth Palmer joins us from Tokyo to explain the latest.
LONDON (Reuters) -The withdrawal of Russian forces from a strategically important town in eastern Ukraine has prompted two powerful allies of President Vladimir Putin to do something rare in modern Russia: publicly ridicule the war machine's top brass. Russia's loss of the bastion of Lyman, which puts western parts of Luhansk region under threat, touched a nerve for Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of the southern Russian republic of Chechnya. Kadyrov, who has been close to Putin since his father and former president of Chechnya, Akhmad, was killed in a 2004 bomb attack in Grozny that also killed a Reuters photographer, suggested that Russia should consider using a small tactical nuclear weapon in Ukraine in response to the loss.
Federal drug agents and prosecutors in Colorado held a news conference in July to tout their work taking fentanyl off the streets amid a string of highly publicized overdose deaths. I wanted to give you guys something different today — not just a doom and gloom story,” Brian Besser, the special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Denver Field Division, said. I wanted you to see that behind the scenes there is aggressive and tenacious police work being done and prosecution being done to save lives and to bring people to justice.
Two women were attacked early Sunday morning on a New York City subway by a mysterious group of women in neon green full bodysuits. A video of the assault shared on social media shows the group ― which has been called the “Green Goblin Gang” by local media ― punching and tossing two 19-year-old women on a subway train near Times Square around 2 a.m. The assailants escaped the scene with a cellphone and a handbag, police told the New York Post.
Russia's first mobilisation since World War Two, declared by President Vladimir Putin on Sept. 21, has led to widespread discontent among officials and citizens over the way the draft has been handled, including complaints about enlistment officers sending call-up papers to clearly ineligible men. "In 10 days, several thousand of our countrymen received summons and arrived at the military registration and enlistment offices," Mikhail Degtyarev, the governor of the Khabarovsk region in Russia's Far East, said in a video post on the Telegram messaging app. Degtyarev said the removal of the commissar, Yuri Laiko, would not affect the mobilisation plan set by Putin.
A 96-year-old Charlotte County man found trapped under a car in high water is the oldest victim of Hurricane Ian's deadly course through Southwest Florida, whose wrath is now revealed in a grim spreadsheet compiled by the state's Medical Examiners' Commission. The 68-person list of confirmed dead is certain to grow, as rescue and recovery efforts continue in areas battered by the Category 4 storm and the flooding it spawned after it made landfall last Wednesday near Cayo Costa on Florida's Gulf coast.
Alligators and snakes are swarming around Florida homes destroyed by Hurricane Ian, an official said. "There are a lot [of] places that are not livable," Sanibel Fire Chief William Briscoe told CNN. Briscoe added, "There are alligators running around, and there are snakes all over the place."
Russia's retreat from a key Ukrainian city over the weekend elicited outcry from an unlikely crowd – state-run media outlets that typically cast Moscow's war in glowing terms. A series of embarrassing military losses in recent weeks has presented a challenge for prominent hosts of Russian news and political talk shows struggling to find ways to paint Ukraine's gains in a way that is still favorable to the Kremlin. Frustration with the battlefield setbacks has long been expressed in social media blogs run by nationalist pundits and pro-Kremlin analysts, and the volume grew after Ukraine's counteroffensive last month around Kharkiv in the northeast.
No, I don't care if Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis shows up to a disaster wearing white boots evocative of the go-go dancer footwear I adored in junior high school, now sold online as a Halloween costume. To be sure, knee-high boots over tight jeans was a weird choice of attire for a homophobic-talking man who has gone drag queen-hunting in Miami. But, hey, at least DeSantis' tacky Florida man fashion sense, while on a Monday visit to DeSoto County, brought a rare moment of comic relief to the devastation left along Hurricane Ian's path.
Christian Walker's Twitter blast came in the hours after The Daily Beast published a report alleging that Herschel Walker impregnated a woman he was dating in 2009, urged her to get an abortion and then reimbursed her for the procedure. The woman provided receipts and told the media outlet she came forward because “I just can't with the hypocrisy anymore. On the campaign trail, Walker has said he supports a ban on abortions with no exceptions, presumably including when a pregnancy is the result of rape or incest or endangers the health of the mother.
Goble describes the Kremlin's approach to the mobilization as having been conducted by Russian President Vladimir Putin under a cynical premise: “How do I carry this out so that few people in Moscow and St. Petersburg get rounded up? Yet the extent of the recent protests appears to suggest that the Kremlin misjudged how its mobilization order would be received in the areas it targeted. "This partial mobilization is not well planned and is likely to backfire," Goble told Yahoo News.

Like nearly 50% of Americans, Talia (not her real name) had gained weight over the pandemic and wanted to do something about it. After a friend lost 40 pounds using semaglutide — a prescription injectable weight-loss medication that's garnering a lot of buzz right now — her interest was piqued. The New York resident made an appointment with her friend's doctor and asked about any potential risks and whether she needed to follow a specific diet while on the medication.
A school resource officer had a fatal heart attack after breaking up a fight between two high school students, Georgia officials say. It happened Tuesday, Oct. 4, when Capt. Terry Arnold collapsed while escorting a student involved in a fight through Cook High School's main entrance, according to a Facebook post from the Cook County Fire Department and Emergency Management Agency. Arnold, who was affectionately known as “turtle,” was taken to South Georgia Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, the post says.
Garth Brooks' sold-out shows near Branson, Missouri, provided unforgettable nights for thousands of fans — but many for all the wrong reasons. From traffic woes, parking issues, miles-long walks and troubles for those with disabilities, the three-night opening of the Thunder Ridge Nature Arena did not go as planned as it ushered in one of the most well-known musicians on the planet.
Poland's foreign minister on Monday signed an official note to Germany requesting the payment of about $1.3 trillion in reparations for the damage incurred by occupying Nazi Germans during World War II. Zbigniew Rau said the note will be handed to Germany's Foreign Ministry. The signing comes on the eve of Rau's meeting in Warsaw with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who will attend a security conference.
An illicit early morning joy ride ended in tragedy Sunday in Southwest Florida, an area still reeling from Hurricane Ian. In a news briefing, in St. Petersburg, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said that three teen boys checking for unlocked cars, found a Maserati with the keys inside in a driveway, and took off. Deputies in a patrolling chopper investigating an unrelated burglary nearby spotted the teens from above as they were entering the high-end Italian performance vehicle.
A top-of-the-line Russian nuclear-powered submarine has gone missing from its harbor in the Arctic along with its rumored "doomsday weapon," according to multiple reports. NATO has reportedly warned members that Russia's Belgorod submarine no longer appeared to be operating out of its White Sea base, where it has been active since July. Officials warned that Russia may plan to test Belgorod's "Poseidon" weapons system, a drone equipped with a nuclear bomb that Russia has claimed is capable of creating a "radioactive tsunami," according to Italian media.
"It's tense, let's put it that way," Vladimir Saldo, the Russian-installed head of Ukraine's Kherson region, said on state television. "Where the Kakhovka (reservoir) is, there is a settlement called Dudchany ... it is in this area that there is a breakthrough and there are settlements taken by Ukrainian troops," he said. Dudchany, on the west bank of the Dnipro river, is about 40 km (25 miles) downriver from where Russian troops had opposed Ukrainian forces a day earlier.
“They give voters the chance to hear candidate views. In their own words. In real time.”
“There is campaigning, and there is governing. Two different things. … In the end, it is governing that really matters.”
“We are in a crisis of democracy, and we need to be able to figure out how to disagree.”
“In very close races, small mistakes can prove decisive, or at least knock a campaign in the wrong direction for a few days.”
“The debates themselves are shaping up to be major campaign issues. It’s tedious, and it does not serve the voters.”
