Company CEO Scott Kirby said they are now beginning the process of firing 593 workers. “I feel bad for the 593 people, less than one 1 percent, that are going to leave, but we are focused on doing the right thing for United Airlines,” he stated. “And it’s great to have this in the rearview mirror for us and the ability to just move forward now.” Letter: (Letter end.)

Rep. Hice to Newsmax: Biden Must Step Down After Generals' Revelations

Maybe President Joe Biden doesn't recall that his military advisers told him he should leave 2,500 American troops in Afghanistan. Or maybe he's lying about it. But in either case, he should resign from the White House, Rep. Jody Hice said on Newsmax on Tuesday after testimony from Pentagon leaders to the Senate Armed Services Committee contradicted what the president has claimed.  "One of only two options are here," the Georgia Republican said on Newsmax's "American Agenda." "Either the president's mental capacity has gotten to such a point that indeed, he is not able of recalling the information given him, the advice given him from his military generals, or he's lying." Either way, Hice continued, "it's bad news for America, and I believe it ultimately points to the need for this president to step down and resign. He is not capable to be the commander-in-chief." Earlier on Tuesday, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff G

(John Moore/Getty)       Former President Donald Trump in a scathing memo criticizing President Joe Biden on Monday said another 20,000 Haitian immigrants  were staged  in Colombia preparing to make their trek to the U.S.-Mexico border, the “laughingstock of the globe.” “Just eight months ago, the whole world knew that if you illegally violated America’s borders, no matter where you came from, you’d be immediately caught, promptly detained, and swiftly removed—perfect precision clockwork,” Trump said in a memo issued through his Save America PAC. “Our border was the envy of nations. Now, our border is the laughingstock of the globe. Anyone, from anywhere, can just illegally walk across our border, turn themselves in, and then be on to the city of their choice. No testing, no masking, no mandates. Free healthcare, deliveries, and medical services in

(Anna Moneymaker/Getty) I Senate Republicans prepared to vote Monday against a House-passed government funding bill, virtually killing the measure, The Washington Post reported. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., last week said GOP lawmakers were not willing to vote for any legislation that raises or suspends the debt ceiling. The Treasury Department has said the debt limit needs to be raised by mid-October or the U.S. economy could be disrupted. The House voted to fund the government through Dec. 3 and suspend the nation's borrowing limit until the end of 2022. "If they want to tax, borrow, and spend historic sums of money without our input, they’ll have to raise the debt limit without our help," McConnell said, the  Post  reported. "This is the reality. I’ve been saying this very clearly since July.&qu

Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said he’s “deeply disappointed” in his colleagues on the left for repeated calls to defund police. During an interview on Friday, the South Carolina Republican said he refuses to support a bill that “demoralizes” local law enforcement and “destabilizes” communities. The lawmaker also pointed to big liberal cities like Minneapolis, Portland and Seattle, where police reform issues originated under blue leadership. “Everyone knows that change requires resources and what the Democrats wanted to do was tie accreditation to more money or less money,” said Scott. “They literally said if you do not become an accredited department ar
