DC Proves Shazam Is A Team, Not A Singular Hero
Shazam pioneered the idea of a superhero family, and now DC has shown how important it is in The New Champion of Shazam! series.In the 1940s, during comics’ Golden Age, Shazam (then called Captain Marvel and published by Fawcett Comics) pioneered the concept of a “superhero family,” introducing Mary Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr., the Lieutenant Marvels, Uncle Dudley, Tawky Tawny and others; this would be years before other publishers latched on to the idea. When Shazam’s history was rewritten during the New 52 era, a new Shazam Family was introduced, consisting of stalwarts Mary and Freddy (who had been Captain Marvel Jr.
Mary Trump, the niece of former President Donald Trump and his avid critic, sarcastically said this week that the country will "run out of beer" if her uncle was indicted for keeping classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort residence, in reference to a recent interview in which he said "big problems" would happen in the country if he were to be indicted. © Photo by Jeff Swensen/Getty Images Former President Donald Trump speaks at a Save America Rally to support Republican candidates running for state and federal offices in the state at the Covelli Centre on September 17 in Youngstown, Ohio.
"Donald said recently that there will be 'big problems' if he's indicted and he's right. There will be big problems for him. I know that he was in his not-too-subtle way, threatening the rest of us with the violence of his insane followers," she said during an episode of The Mary Trump Show that was posted by Politicon to YouTube on Saturday.
Kris Kobach resigns from We Build the Wall board after nonprofit indicted on money laundering
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the Republican candidate for state attorney general, resigned Friday from the board of directors of We Build the Wall after the nonprofit organization was indicted on allegations of money laundering, conspiracy and fraud. New York state prosecutors unsealed an indictment against former Trump adviser Steve Bannon on Thursday, alleging he defrauded donors to We Build the Wall, which fundraised to construct privately-funded strips of wall along the southern border. We Build the Wall was also indicted and accused of the same crimes. Both Bannon and We Build the Wall have pleaded not guilty.
"But, you know that's not going to happen. There is not going to be some mass uprising to protest the fact that Donald finally for once in his life is being held accountable. The real problem is that we're probably going to run out of beer," she added.
Her remarks came in reference to a Thursday interview that the ex-president had with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, who asked him if his chances of running again for president in 2024 would be deterred if prosecutors indict him.
"I don't think the people of the United States would stand for it. And as you know, if a thing like that happened, I would have no prohibition against running," Trump responded. "I think if it happened, I think you'd have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps we've never seen before. I don't think the people of the United States would stand for it."
How my son Peter Doocy was almost named after a city in Tennessee
One of the hardest decisions we faced as a family was what to name our children. Here's the story of how we almost named our first-born after a city in the Tennessee.With each of our cookbooks we try to keep the names of our recipes simple, so that as soon as you read them you’ll have a pretty good idea what ingredients are involved. Creamy Crusted Horseradish Salmon leaves little to the imagination. However, our Dental Hygienist Pot Roast from our first cookbook might have confused some home cooks.
When asked about the kind of problems that could happen if he was indicted, Trump said: "I think they'd have big problems, big problems. I just don't think they'd stand for it. They will not, they will not sit still and stand for this ultimate of hoaxes. We went through phony impeachments. We went through phony Mueller reports that came out with no collusion. We came, everything that they've done to try and stop progress."
Last month, FBI agents raided Mar-a-Lago to seize classified documents that Trump took from the White House last year after leaving office. The raid was conducted following an approval from Attorney General Merrick Garland and after law enforcement received a tip from an informant who knew what type of documents Trump kept and where he kept them.
The documents reportedly include sensitive information related to nuclear weapons and "highly classified programs," which prompted some experts to suggest that he might be in violation of the Espionage Act under which he could face up to 10 years in prison, a fine, or both if convicted.
Trump — who once endorsed DeSantis as his 'great friend' — slams the 'ungrateful' Florida governor, saying 'I made him,' report says
Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis, once allies, haven't spoken to each other in months as a potential 2024 presidential campaign rivalry brews.Just a small crowd of supporters had gathered as of 2 p.m. Several people who said they were part of Club 45 — an independent Trump-supporting organization — said more people would assemble from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., after people were done working for the day. Traffic was becoming more backed up by 3 p.m. By 5 p.m., about 60 people had gathered on the bridge.
"By the way, he stole hundreds of highly classified top secret documents that belonged to America. So maybe we should indict him, charge him, convict him, and imprison him," Mary Trump said during her show.
Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing since the FBI raid and said that he declassified the seized documents before he left office. However, former Department of Justice (DOJ) official Mary McCord said that he had no authority to do so after leaving office, according to Reuters.
A federal judge recently responded to Trump's request to bring a special master who would be tasked to look into the seized documents and determine whether any of the materials are protected by executive privilege or attorney-client privilege. Former New York federal chief judge Raymond Dearie was appointed to serve as the special master and he is expected to complete the review by November 30.
