Fox News Host Confronts GOP Senator: ‘Why Are You Against’ Raising Debt Limit?
Fox News SundayFox News host Trace Gallagher briefly pressed Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) on Sunday over the GOP senator’s refusal to support raising the debt ceiling, wondering aloud why Barrasso is against it since it covers already authorized government expenses.Following the Thanksgiving break, the U.S. Senate is poised for an extremely busy and tense next few weeks. Democrats, who hold a very slim majority in the chamber, will be tasked not only with trying to find a way to iron out intra-party squabbles over the Build Back Better social spending plan but they’re also forced to go it alone in terms of boosting the debt limit before the government runs out of money next month.After Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reached an agreement in October to allow Democrats to pass a short-term debt-limit extension, he vowed that Republicans would not offer any further assistance in raising the debt ceiling. In fact, the Kentucky senator told President Joe Biden he was even willing to let the United States default on the national debt.Read more at The Daily Beast.
The deep meaning of this year's Hanukkah
Rabbi Joshua M. Davidson writes that amidst a frustrating year filled by inequalities and abuses of freedom, this year the Chanukah holiday holds an even deeper and more sepcial meaning.

Prince Charles Questioned Skin Color of Meghan and Harry’s Unborn Babies, New Book Claims
Clemens Bilan/Getty ImagesA new book claims Prince Charles privately discussed with his wife the likely “complexion” of any children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.The potentially devastating accusation appears in the latest book by the New York Times best-selling author Christopher Andersen. But the author stops short of directly alleging that Charles is the royal racist who expressed “concerns” to Prince Harry over the skin color of the couple’s children, as Meghan Markle told Oprah in a bombshell interview. However, Andersen’s new book, Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan (Gallery), out Nov. 30, says that on Nov. 27, 2017, the day Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement was revealed, Prince Charles asked his wife, Camila, “I wonder what the children look like?”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Meredith Kercher’s Killer Blasts Amanda Knox: “She Knows the Truth”
Tiziana Fabi/Getty ImagesRudy Guede, who was convicted of raping and killing British student Meredith Kercher and who was released from jail early this past week, insinuated Amanda Knox and her ex-lover Raffaelle Sollecito were the ones who “inflict[ed] the stab wounds” in the gruesome 2007 murder. Guede, who spent 13 years in jail for the crime, maintained his innocence in his first post-jail interview with Britain’s The Sun, even as Knox pleaded with him to clear her name. “I know the truth and she knows the truth,” he told the tabloid.Sollecito and Knox both served four years in jail in connection with Kercher’s murder before being acquitted by Italy’s highest court. Knox, who was Kercher’s roommate at the time of the slaying, has implored Guede to “restore my wrongly damaged reputation.” In a Twitter thread, she asserted, “He has the power to tell the truth, to take responsibility, to stop blaming me for the rape and murder of Meredith Kercher, which a wealth of evidence shows he committed alone.” Guede, whose fingerprints were found at the crime scene and whose DNA was found on and in Kercher’s body, has blamed Knox before. In a taped interview from his Italian prison in 2016, the Ivory Coast native said, “I am 101 percent certain Amanda Knox was there” when Kercher was killed. But Guede’s story about his supposed innocence has been riddled with inconsistencies over the years and despite Knox’s and Sollecito’s shifting alibis early on, Italian courts ultimately found that any DNA evidence tying the pair to the killing had been contaminated and cleared them both.Read more at The Daily Beast.
