Trump Won’t Run in 2024, Raising Money Off ‘Greatest Grift in US History’

  • Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the former president won’t run for president in 2024.
  • “This should become a documentary, and it should be called the greatest grift in US history,” Cohen said of Trump’s efforts.
  • “If he loses, which he will in 2024, what happens to the ‘Big Lie?’ The big lie disappears,” Cohen said.

We are so sorry! We bumped into a system failure and couldn’t take your email this time.

Former President Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen on Sunday said that the former president would not run for the White House in 2024.

During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Cohen, a former Trump confidant-turned-critic, told host Chuck Todd that the ex-president’s efforts to secure political donations as he dangles another campaign in front of his supporters was being done “to keep

With staggering growth behind it, Target’s Shipt delivery business faces a now-what moment

After a year of intense growth, Target Corp.’s grocery-delivery business, Shipt, is starting to level off and its pool of competitors keeps expanding.

More shoppers embraced the convenience — and safety, from a health standpoint — of grocery delivery as the pandemic unfolded. But as in-person shopping returned, delivery specialists like Shipt had to come up with new ways to make the momentum count and better serve customers and retail clients.

“As time drove on, what I was particularly proud of was the sustainability of our model and how we were able to keep up with that never-anticipated level of demand, but not only keep up but continue to evolve and improve the experience,” Kelly Caruso, chief executive of Shipt, said in a recent interview.

In the last year, Shipt added some key features to its platform. Its users can now enter dietary preferences and indicate their favorite shoppers, options

How America’s Biggest Privately Owned Oil Company Takes A Divergent Approach To The Energy Transition

Contrary to popular belief, extraction of oil and natural gas from shale formations has not been the focal point for all U.S. producers over the last 20 years. While it is true that production from older, mature basins and formations has dropped in the U.S. as shale production has so dramatically risen, conventional drilling has remained a profitable enterprise and tens of thousands of older wells remain in operation.

A Company With a Divergent View

As the better part of the upstream herd rushed to get a piece of the Shale revolution in the 21st century, some companies saw remaining opportunity and profits in these mature plays and late-life assets. One company, Houston-based Hilcorp, has stood out among that crowd. Founded in 1989 by Houston billionaire Jeffery Hildebrand, Hilcorp has grown to become the largest

Steve Cahalan: New businesses revitalize Galesville | Business

Steve Cahalan

There’s been a spurt of business openings in Galesville in the past few months, bringing additional life to what I’ve always thought is one of the most interesting downtowns in the region.

Clarissa Andersen and Chandra Crane opened Jungle Juice on Saturday at 19873 W. Gale Ave. in downtown Galesville. It’s a smoothie, boba tea and hot tea bar in the same storefront where Andersen also has been operating FernGrove Houseplants since early October.

FernGrove had been sharing the storefront with Revved Nutrition until Revved closed Nov. 20.

“While we do hope to cater to those who are on the go and looking for a nutritious and delicious way to start their day, we have also strived to make the space inviting and safe for people who wish to stay and hang with friends or work on homework,” Andersen said of Jungle Juice. “We have free Wi-Fi and

Republicans try to censor big business, LOL

Republicans will cut your taxes and keep them low. But there’s a price: You have to side with the Party of Trump in political battles, even if it might mean breaking the law.

This latest twist in the GOP’s self-preservation strategy is a threat by the top House Republican, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, to retaliate against any business that complies with requests from the committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol. “If these companies comply with the Democrat [sic] order to turn over private information, they are in violation of federal law and subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States,” McCarthy

TCU 45, Duquesne 3: Taking Care of Business

TCU opened their 2021 campaign with a solid drubbing of a vastly inferior opponent. There have been seasons where the FCS or low D1 opponent TCU pays to come in have given the Frogs some trouble, but that wasn’t the case on Saturday night.

TCU leveled Duquesne 45-3. Max Duggan and the rest of the starters played only the first half, showcasing a reinvented offense under new/old offensive coordinator Doug Meacham. The offense was varied, with plenty of motion, a seemingly full route tree, and a lot (early on) of passes from Duggan.

In one half of play, Max finished with 14 completions on 19 attempts, for 207 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also added a rushing touchdown to his ledger, opening the scoring for the Frogs with an 8-yard designed keeper up the middle.

On that same drive, Duggan also eclipsed the 4,000 yard passing mark for

FDA, CDC Heads Push Back on Biden’s COVID-19 Booster-Shot Plan

  • The heads of the FDA and CDC are pushing back on the White House’s plan for COVID-19 booster shots.
  • The officials say they need more time to review data on extra doses, The New York Times said Friday.
  • It’s another setback to the Biden administration’s plan, which reportedly prompted FDA resignations.

The Biden administration’s booster-shot plan is facing another setback.

Top health officials have told the White House they need more time and data before authorizing extra doses, The New York Times reported Friday.

The heads of the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told the White House they may be able to recommend boosters for only some recipients of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine in the next few weeks, according to the report.

On August 18, top US health officials — including the FDA and CDC heads — issued

The Surprisingly Big Business of Library E-books

Steve Potash, the bearded and bespectacled president and C.E.O. of OverDrive, spent the second week of March, 2020, on a business trip to New York City. OverDrive distributes e-books and audiobooks—i.e., “digital content.” In New York, Potash met with two clients: the New York Public Library and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. By then, Potash had already heard what he described to me recently as “heart-wrenching stories” from colleagues in China, about neighborhoods that were shut down owing to the coronavirus. He had an inkling that his business might be in for big changes when, toward the end of the week, on March 13th, the N.Y.P.L. closed down and issued a statement: “The responsible thing to do—and the best way to serve our patrons right now—is to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.” The library added, “We will continue to offer access to e-books.”

The sudden shift to e-books had enormous

  • They were angry that the principal had asked children who were exposed to COVID-19 to wear a mask and isolate.
  • One of the men, Rishi Rambaran, who brought zip-tie handcuffs to the scene, has been arrested. 

An angry Arizona father who barged into his elementary school kid’s principal’s office to protest a mask requirement has been arrested.

Rishi Rambaran, 40, stormed into Principal Diane Vargo’s office on Thursday with zip-tie handcuffs, according to a since-removed Instagram video. He and two friends accompanying him claimed the school broke the law when administrative officials told his kid to wear a mask and quarantine after potential exposure to COVID-19. 

Rambaran has since been arrested, Vargo told Insider in a statement.
