The Texas Senator was caught on a flight to Cancun while his home state was without power. While the optics of that move was bad, it was what Cruz did next that sealed his fate. Cruz attempted to dig himself out of a hole by cancelling his trip, flying back the next day and saying he only went on vacation to appease his daughters. Tony Katz unravels this whole disaster.

China should not be hosting the Winter Olympics in Beijing in 2022. Their abuse of Hong Kongers? Their imprisonment of Uighur Muslim men and rape of Uighur Muslim women? Their theft of intellectual property? Their violent intimidation of Taiwan? None of it should be tolerated. And they do not deserve to be glorified as an Olympic host country.
Bring the 2022 games to Canada. They can do it.
Also, Shep Smith of CNBC is horrified by a South Florida supermarket, Why? Not enough masks. And the Biden Administration prepares to open overflow facility for migrant children. In other words, kids in cages. This is another reason the national media is not trusted.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) led a group of Democrats sharing their stories from the day of the Capitol riot. It was a strange sight to see in the House of Representatives, and it was strange to see Rep. Ocasio-Cortez acting as if she was pious.
She made claims about herself during the Capitol riots that were, clearly, untrue. She placed sinister intent on Capitol Police who were trying to help and protect her. She accused a sitting US Senator (Ted Cruz R-TX) of attempted murder. And then, when questioned on her antics and comments, she claimed that anyone who questioned her was akin to someone who sexually abuses others.
All of it should be discussed, none of this should be forgotten…or forgiven.
