Watching eagerly as the House nears passage of legislation that will bring us cleaner air, lower deficits, and lower costs for prescription drugs and energy for families across America.

We admire Salman Rushdie for standing up for his ideas; the thoughts and best wishes of the NYU community are with him in the aftermath of this grievous attack.

We strongly condemn this assault, both upon the person and his right to share his ideas. Silencing an invited speaker in a public setting is antithetical to the University’s core principle of the free exchange of ideas, & doing so by means of violence only compounds the offense.

The University was shocked to learn of the attack on Salman Rushdie, a Distinguished Writer in Residence in our Carter Journalism Institute, and is deeply concerned for his health.

BREAKING: Author Salman Rushdie has been attacked as he was about to give a lecture in western New York. An @AP reporter witnessed a man storm the stage at the Chautauqua Institution and begin punching or stabbing Rushdie as he was being introduced. apnews.com/article/salman-ru…

Hong Kong - record decline in population. Another success story for the CCP. And now they tell Taiwan they would impose the same horrific repression on its 25 million people.

Hong Kong released its latest population data and the drop is just a STUNNING visual on a chart. Check out rate of change going back to the 1960s. This is a record decline and it's not even close.

Would Beijing allow a referendum for independence to be held in Taiwan or regions such Hong Kong, Tibet and Xinjiang?

“It may be funny to you mother f*cker, but it’s not funny to me.” @BetoORourke did not hold back when a supporter of Greg Abbott laughed loudly as Beto discussed the mass shooting in Uvalde.
