A California man who was trying to evade police Saturday night was eventually caught – only after he bit a police K-9 and barked at officers, according to authorities. Jorge Bucioperez was driving a silver minivan Saturday night near the area of Houghton Avenue and Butte Street, according to a press release from the Corning Police Department. An officer said Bucioperez ran a stop sign. While attempting to pull Bucioperez over, police say he ended up leading the office on a high speed chase , with Bucioperez going 75 miles per hour at one point. Eventually Bucioperez jumped out of the vehicle and began running through random backyards. Police K-9 Blaze was released, chasing and apprehending Bucioperez. However, Bucioperez wasn’t willing to go down easy.

Photo: Damon Winter/The New York Times/DAMON WINTER/The New York Times/ When Laura Poitras co-founded First Look Media with Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill in 2013, the venture had immediate prestige: Poitras and Greenwald shared a Pulitzer Prize for their work at the Guardian on Edward Snowen’s NSA leaks, and Scahill’s reporting illuminated the excesses of the U.S. global war on terror. Now Scahill is the only co-founder who remains. Greenwald left in November, accusing the Intercept’s editors of “censorship,” claiming that the outlet had refused to publish a column concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings, because they were in the tank for Biden. Intercept editor-in-chief Betsy Reed said Greenwald was making himself out to be a “victim, rather than a grown person throwing a tantrum,” she wrote in a scathing public statement. In January, Poitras announced that she, too, had left First Look — but not by choice. In an open letter, Poitras wrote the company fired after … [Read more...] about Why Did First Look Let Go of Laura Poitras?
House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy has a fresh spring in his step after the Republicans defied the odds and professional political prognosticators by picking up 15 seats in the 2020 congressional elections. McCarthy, who has his eyes on the majority in November 2022, approached the 2020 congressional elections differently than Republicans in recent history have traditionally targeted congressional electoral efforts, and his moves paid off—and not only infuriated but befuddled the beltway pundit class. For the first time since 1994, in 2020 no GOP incumbent running for reelection lost. Meanwhile, McCarthy blew away fundraising records previously set by former House Speaker Paul Ryan—astonishing since he did it from the minority. Usually, House political leaders do better raising money from the majority. That’s not to mention the most significant development which is a freshman class entering Congress in 2021 that represents perhaps the most diverse in party history with the most … [Read more...] about Exclusive: After 2020 Gains, Kevin McCarthy Eyes House GOP Majority, Speaker’s Gavel in Midterms
We have new assurances that by July or August the U.S. government will have secured an adequate COVID-19 vaccine supply in order to fully immunize our population, or at least 80 percent, considered by some a threshold for interrupting SARS CoV2 virus transmission. Achieving such high rates of coverage will not be easy. To begin with, the U.S. does not have an adult national immunization program and current rates of vaccine hesitancy especially among African American and conservative groups are a challenge. Nevertheless there is overall great optimism that we can vaccinate our way out of the COVID-19 pandemic that began in 2020. Fully vaccinating the U.S. population means that Americans can go to work, hold sporting events, attend concerts, visit family, or enjoy restaurants and outings without fear of hospitalization or death. We have cause for great optimism from a return to normalcy or near normalcy. ADVERTISEMENT Unfortunately, the good news that … [Read more...] about COVID variant could mean a brutal March for the US
President Biden is set to speak with Saudi Arabia’s King Salman ahead of the release of an intelligence report likely linking the king’s son to the murder of U.S.-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Axios reports . The reported call Wednesday would be the first between the two leaders since Biden took office last month, with the White House earlier saying the new administration is looking to “recalibrate” the United States's relationship with Saudi Arabia. The White House told The Hill on Wednesday that it did not have anything to share on a possible call between the president and the Saudi king. ADVERTISEMENT While Biden has publicly stated a U.S. commitment to Saudi Arabia and its defensive needs in the region, the affirmations came alongside the president’s announcement earlier this month that he would end U.S. support for the Saudi-led offensive in Yemen’s civil war. The report on the murder of Khashoggi is likely to come up in the call, as the president has … [Read more...] about Biden to speak with Saudi king ahead of Khashoggi report: report
