Atlanta, Georgia-area residents felt the brunt of the nationwide high inflation rates, as the cost of goods in the city rose nearly 8 percent over last year according to data released in the Consumer Price Index on Wednesday. According to the data, transportation costs in the city rose 21 percent over the past year. There were also high inflation rates recorded in St. Louis, Missouri and cities in Arizona, with smaller increases reported in large liberal cities like New York and San Francisco, as people moved out of the areas and into cities in more conservative states during the coronavirus pandemic. Nationwide, inflation rose 6.2 percent over last year - the highest it has been since November 1990, as President Joe Biden vows to tackle the issue.
Scott Fairlamb (right and left at the Capitol riot), 44, was the first person sentenced for assaulting a law enforcement officer during the January 6 Capitol riot. He pleaded guilty to two counts - one for obstruction of an official proceeding and one for assaulting the police officer - and must spend 44 months in prison and pay a $2,000 fine. Videos from the Capitol riot showed Fairlamb punching an officer's helmet and climbing a scaffolding holding a baton while shouting. Prosecutors called for a 44-month sentence and cited Fairlamb's background in MMA fighting and social media, where he supported QAnon conspiracy theories. Fairlamb has been held at the Hudson County Correctional Facility since he was arrested from his Stockholm, New Jersey, home on January 22.
Kyle Rittenhouse judge eviscerates prosecutor for bringing banned TikTok information before the jury: Defense demands he declare a mistrial that could see Kenosha shooter walk FREE
Kyle Rittenhouse's defense has told the court that they plan to move for a mistrial on grounds of prosecutorial misconduct following a morning of high drama in Kenosha County Courthouse. Shortly after lunch and before the jury was called back Rittenhouse's attorney, Corey Chirafisi informed Judge Bruce Schroeder of their intention to file a motion calling for a mistrial with prejudice meaning that the case could not be retried. He went onto accuse Assistant District Attorney of knowingly attempting to throw over the proceedings because they were going badly for the state. He explained, 'Normally a mistrial does not preclude a retrial [unless] a defendant's motion is necessitated by a prosecutorial impropriety designed to avoid an acquittal.' He continued, 'What has happened is two times the state commented on Mr Rittenhouse's right to remain silent. 'The first time he was admonished by the court. The second time the judge had the jury leave and he was re-admonished.' Before Rittenhouse took the stand Wednesday morning the judge had doubled down on an earlier decision in which he excluded evidence in which the teen had commented online about wishing he had his AR-15 so that he could shoot shoplifters. But despite this decision - and its reiteration - Binger brought the information up during his cross examination, a move that sparked a furious response from the judge. Chirafisi continued that to move for a mistrial with prejudice, 'The prosecutor's actions must be intentional...[with] an awareness that his activity would be prejudicial. 'You had warned him. You had told him prior to Mr Rittenshouse testifying. 'You had warned him about the infringement of his constitutional right to remain silent. He did it again. 'The second one says that the prosecutor's actions was designed to allow another chance to conv
Kyle Rittenhouse sobs uncontrollably on the stand as he describes being 'ambushed' by his first victim who swung at him with a heavy chain and threatened to cut out his 'f***ing heart' - before shooting him dead
Kyle Rittenhouse broke down on the witness stand as he recalled the moment he was 'ambushed' by Joseph Rosenbaum the night he shot him dead. He had taken the stand in his own defense to tell the court that Rosembaum threatened to kill him twice. He claimed Rosenbaum threatened him while swinging a heavy chain and the second time when he said he would 'cut out your f***ing heart' and 'kill you N-word'.The teen recounted the events of the night and explained that he had gone to administer medical aid armed with his rifle but not looking for trouble. He said he found himself alone and cut off from the rest of the group with whom he had been earlier on the evening of August 25, 2020. Rittenhouse is accused of gunning down three people with a military-style semi-automatic rifle last year, killing two and injuring one.
The penny FINALLY drops! Biden admits inflation is a 'problem' and that 'everything from a gallon of gas to a loaf of bread costs more' but insists shelves WILL be stocked for the Holidays

PIERS MORGAN: Biden doesn't stand a chance in 2024 and neither does the epically unpopular and useless Kamala so unless Joe finds a new VP to succeed him soon the Dems can kiss goodbye to the White House
I regret to say that President Joe Biden and his Vice-President, Kamala Harris are fast becoming the political equivalent of 'Dumb and Dumber's' Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne. Barely a day goes by when one of them isn't doing something worthy of abject mockery - from Biden falling asleep at the COP26 climate change summit, to Harris appearing in a World Space Day video with hired child actors who she pretended were wide-eyed real kids enthralled by her exultation of space exploration. And it's not just me that thinks this. A truly shocking new USA Today-Suffolk University poll reveals crushingly bad approval ratings for Biden with just 38% of Americans approving of his presidency and 59% disapproving. But the President is basking in approval sunshine compared to his deputy. Staggeringly, less than 3 in 10 Americans (27.8%) approve of the job Kamala Harris is doing, with 51.2% disapproving. This makes her the least popular vice-president at this stage of an administration for half a century.

Even Trump got a kiss! Macron avoids giving VP Kamala Harris traditional double cheek greeting as they shake hands at Élysée Palace after relations soured over collapsed $9B submarine deal
ADVERTISEMENT Vice President Kamala Harris continued the administration's push to try to sooth relations with France after the clash over a US submarine deal on her diplomatic visit Wednesday - and by all outward signs was enjoying the task. 'I'm very happy to be in Paris,' she exclaimed when a reporter shouted a question about whether she had to make 'amends.' She was warmly greeted by French President Emmanuel Macron on the steps of Elysee Palace - just days after President Joe Biden also sought to mend fences with the nation often called America's oldest ally. Macron walked down the steps to greet her as her motorcade arrived. The two exchanged a warm greeting, with Harris smiling and grinning as they first shook hands.
Rust electrician who held dying Halyna Hutchins in his arms reveals 'scene did NOT require Alec Baldwin to shoot the revolver' as he sues for 'emotional distress'
Head electrician on the Rust movie set Serge Svetnoy has sued Alec Baldwin, rookie armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed (bottom right with guns) and assistant director Dave Halls (inset blue shirt). He claimed that the negligence that led to Hutchins' death has caused him 'severe emotional distress' he's unsure if he can recover from. Svetnoy sued Baldwin for his negligence as an actor and as a producer of the movie, claiming that 'the scene did not call for (him) to shoot the Colt Revolver'. In a tribute post to Hutchins on Facebook Svetnoy said he 'was standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Halyna' when she was fatally shot. 'I was holding her in my arms while she was dying. Her blood was on my hands,' he added before filing the suit, which asked for damages and a jury trial.
American Medical Association is condemned for 'Orwellian' new 'equity' document which pushes CRT and claims the word 'vulnerable' is offensive
The American Medical Association has come under fire for publishing an 'Orwellian' guide on 'equity' that promotes critical race theory and Marxism; includes a list of words physicians should stop using such as 'vulnerable,' 'high risk' and 'minority,' and criticizes meritocracy and individualism. Twitter was rife with comments slamming the guide as touting 'literal Marxism' and sowing division instead of focusing in medicine. Though AMA President Gerald Harmon wrote in a blog post accompanying the guide that 'As with science, our language must change and evolve over time based on new revelations and a deeper understanding.'
Gov. Ron DeSantis says he will send migrants to Delaware if any more are flown into Florida on secret flights and slams Biden for caring more about the Belarus border than his own after his meeting with EU Commission head
DeSantis ripped reports of 'clandestine' flights of migrants to Jacksonville on Wednesday, the same day the EU Commission chief indicated that Biden supported the European Union expanding its Belarus sanctions over the growing migrants crisis on its border with Poland. Western governments in the EU and NATO accused Belarusian strongman dictator Alexander Lukashenko of luring migrants to his country and sending them to cross into Poland in retaliation for sanctions. But in a statement to DailyMail.com, the Florida governor's office called out Biden for remaining silent on the US border crisis.
Gavin Newsom's COVID booster and flu shot made him sick enough to cancel Scotland trip and disappear from public view for nearly two weeks - until he popped up at Ivy Getty's wedding on Saturday
California Governor Gavin Newsom was left with muscle weakness and fatigue after receiving two jabs within days of each other, friends claim. Newsom abruptly pulled out of the climate summit in Scotland last week and his office cited 'family obligations' as the reason. He was last seen in public on October 27, after receiving a COVID-19 booster shot in Oakland and also got a flu shot on October 22. He is seen in a photo attending oil heiress Ivy Getty's wedding in San Francisco on Saturday. Newsom wore a sharp tuxedo with a black mask and is seen looking on while Gordon Getty gives his granddaughter Ivy a kiss at the end of the aisle. 'The flu shot and booster shot were administered separately and the Governor did not have an adverse reaction to either shot,' Newson's press secretary insists.

Scott, 30, announced on Monday that he was partnering with BetterHelp to supply free one-on-one online therapy to any Astroworld victims.

The partnership with BetterHelp was met with backlash and some even speculated that Scott would financially benefit from the initiative. There have also been renewed criticisms about the therapy app, itself, which shares information with third-party advertisers and partners with celebrities. A source close to Astroworld told DailyMail.com Scott is fully funding the free mental health service himself and is in 'no way' making a profit off of it.

A group of parents confronted the Loudoun County school board meeting on Tuesday night to reveal they have filed a petition to have the chair removed. The group, Fight for Schools, has collected more than 2,000 signatures to remove the board chair Brenda Sheridan citing reasons including neglect of duty, misuse of office and incompetence in the performance of her duties.

Texas high school's first black principal is forced to resign after being accused of pushing CRT: Parents also complained when he shared intimate Facebook photo of himself with his white wife
A Texas principal was officially ousted on Monday after months of controversy involving Critical Race Theory and intimate Facebook photos of him and his white wife. Dr. James Whitfield was forced to resign as Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District (GCISD) cited 'deficiencies in his performance.' He has been placed on paid leave until August 2023. He first came under criticism earlier this year after a former school board candidate accused him of teaching and promoting CRT, which the board noted there is no evidence of. Whitfield also raised eyebrows after a decade-old intimate photoshoot of him and his white wife embracing on a beach was shared. He claimed race was at the forefront of the board's decision to force him to remove the photos of the interracial couple. Whitfield was the first black principal at Colleyville Heritage High School, a majority-white school in the Forth Worth area.

Fully vaccinated Matt McConaughey REFUSES to give Pfizer shot to his three kids aged 13, 11 and 8 and says he's against vaccine mandate for children
Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey came out against vaccine mandates for children on Tuesday - even as the father of three revealed he has gotten both shots. McConaughey, 52, said that while he and his wife are both vaccinated, he doesn't want to mandate the COVID-19 jabs for children, including his kids - aged 13, 11 and 8. 'I couldn't mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids. I still want to find out more information,' he said. McConaughy made his comments at The New York Times DealBook summit just days after the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved the Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE Covid-19 vaccines for children aged 5 to 11 last week. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy responded to McConaughey on CNN later on Tuesday, saying that vaccinating children was important because 'Covid is not harmless' to them. 'Many kids have died. Sadly, hundreds of children. Thousands have been hospitalized, and as a dad of a child who has been hospitalized several years ago for another illness, I would never wish upon any parent they have a child that ends up in the hospital,' Murthy said.

No man is a hero to his valet... certainly not Edward VIII: As a treasure trove of memorabilia goes up for auction, a fascinating insight into the 'appalling' Wallis Simpson and a 'rotten' sailing trip
Scrawled across a calendar entry in capital letters on a date that resonates in history is one word written in Latin. It is 'Finis' and it is marked against December 11, 1936, the day that Edward VIII gave up his throne for the love of American divorcee Wallis Simpson (both pictured left a year later, in 1937). This was how the former king's devoted manservant recorded both the tragedy of the Abdication and his own repugnance, with a solitary word meaning 'the end'. The writer was Horace Jack Crisp, who worked as valet and page to the former Prince of Wales and future Duke of Windsor from 1919 until that December night when Edward sailed into exile, amid a constitutional crisis that threatened to bring down the monarchy. Now, nearly 85 years later, Crisp's intimate notes (inset) and keepsakes (a gifted cigarette case, bottom left, and stick pin, bottom right) from his years of palace service - he later worked for both George VI and the Queen Mother - have been unearthed. And they shed a fascinating light on this tumultuous chapter in royal history. Pictured top left: Edward and Mrs Simpson bathing in the Adriatic on their cruise aboard the steam yacht Nahlin, seen top right.

No fist pump for Merkel! German Chancellor is awkwardly left hanging by Denmark's Queen Margrethe II
The German chancellor had rolled out the red carpet for Queen Margrethe's arrival in Berlin, but was left embarrassed when the royal left her offer of a fist bump hanging. Queen Margrethe appeared taken aback when the outgoing Chancellor uncharacteristically extended her fist, offering a rather informal fist bump. The Danish royal paused, before placing her palm on her chest apologetically signalling to Merkel that she would not be participating in the greeting which could be considered unbecoming for a queen. Queen Margrethe of Denmark, known as 'Daisy' to family and subjects alike, met with Merkle on the first day of a four-day visit to Germany. The fist-bump-gone-wrong came before a walk through Berlin's famous Brandenburg Gate that is customary for state visits.
