Ted Cruz implies the US military is too ‘woke’ and ’emasculated’ to compete with Russia

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called the US military “woke” and “emasculated” compared to Russia’s military in a tweet on Thursday.

Cruz based his criticism on a TikTok video comparing a Russian recruitment ad with a US Army commercial. While Russia’s ad featured moody lighting and buff, shirtless men writhing in the dirt, the US Army clip offered an animated telling of the life of US Army Corporal Emma Malonelord, who was raised by a lesbian couple in San Francisco.

Cruz’s office did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for additional comment on the tweet.

How a Defeated Trump Is Making a Muddle of the G.O.P.

The former president’s instincts for red-meat political fights over governing and policymaking have left party leaders in a state of confusion over what they stand for.

Republican lawmakers are passing voting restrictions to pacify right-wing activists still gripped by former President Donald J. Trump’s lie that a largely favorable election was rigged against them. G.O.P. leaders are lashing out in Trumpian fashion at businesses, baseball and the news media to appeal to many of the same conservatives and voters. And debates over the size and scope of government have been overshadowed by the sort of culture war clashes that the tabloid king relished.

GOP Politicians & Pundits Lie About Colorado’s Voting Laws In Attempt To Embarrass MLB

Last week, the MLB announced it would be pulling its All-Star Game out of Georgia in response to the state’s restrictive new voting law, and moving it to far more voter-friendly Colorado.

The bill was passed by Georgia’s Republican-dominated legislature and signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp (R) at the end of last month. Now, the GOP machine is scrambling to defend the action the prompted the move — and its mouthpieces have chosen to lie, loudly and repeatedly, about Colorado’s voting system.

Mo Brooks Says He Wore Body Armor to Jan. 6 Rally After Getting Tip Off

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) has continuously denounced the investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, even as he’s being sued by his colleagues over his role in inciting it. But while Brooks has said he didn’t believe the riot would turn violent, he told a Slate reporter Wednesday that he was actually tipped off about potential violence, prompting him to sleep in his office the day before the Ellipse speech and wear body armor to the rally.

‘This is how I’m going to die’: Officers describe horrors of Jan. 6 riot

Four police officers who defended the Capitol from a Jan. 6 riot by Donald Trump supporters spoke out Tuesday during the first hearing of the select committee investigating the attack, sharing harrowing details of their physical and mental trauma.

As the riot fades from public memory amid a new wave of Republican revisionism, select panel members aimed to cast the hearing — the first time Congress has heard publicly from law enforcement on the front lines of the response to Jan. 6 — as a vivid reminder of what happened.

BOB DYLAN SELLS RIGHTS TO ENTIRE SONG CATALOG, DOUBLING NET WORTH OVERNIGHT

Universal Music Group has bought Bob Dylan’s entire song catalog in a blockbuster deal that’s rumored to be worth more than $300 million. Included in the historic acquisition are 600 songs spanning six decades, spanning from classic 1960s hits like “Blowin ‘in the Wind,” “The Times They Are a-Changing,” and “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” to his 39th studio album Rough and Rowdy Ways, released in June 2020.

Ruggs III, H. – LV (WR)

The Athletic’s Vic Tafur believes Raiders WR Henry Ruggs is “the one receiver we can lock in for a lot of targets.” (7/8)
Advice: “Gruden hears the criticism of the Ruggs pick, so he is the one receiver we can lock in for a lot of targets,” Tafur writes. The first receiver drafted among last year’s elite class, Ruggs was primarily used as a decoy under Gruden, receiving two screens on 581 offensive snaps and finishing behind Josh Jacobs in targets (45 to 43). There is some momentum here as Gruden mentioned 22-year-old Ruggs looking “much better” in his second year at offseason workouts. With Nelson Agholor’s team-high 79.3 air yards and additional 5.1 targets per game vacated from last year, there is a fruitful role available for Ruggs to step into if Gruden discovers how to use him over free agent pickup John Brown. Any amount of volume near the line of scrimmage (rather than forgetting Ruggs is on the team) would also help.

Paradise Air Hawaii

This is an awesome experience for anyone wanting to do something thrilling and different. I was looking for something fun to do to get out of the house during the Covid 19 pandemic and I found Paradise Air Hawaii. It’s such an awesome thing to do. You and your pilot will take off together and fly around Kaena Point and the North Shore area by Dillingham. They will let you fly the aircraft yourself the entire time if you really want to. They really know what they are doing and you never feel unsafe. You are masked up most of the time and while you are in the air you have a visor over your face so you can pull your mask down and smile for photos and videos. If your local or students you can get photos or videos included in your package for free. It’s a great deal. It’s a much longer experience than skydiving and you are literally flying. Definitely check this place out and give it a try.

Mayfield, B. – Cle (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns (6/23) Advice: For Fantasy purposes Baker Mayfield is a No. 2 quarterback best rostered in Dynasty leagues or leagues where you can start more than one quarterback. Mayfield’s efficiency rebounded in his first year under Kevin Stefanski, but Stefanski’s run-heavy scheme severely limits a pocket passer’s upside. Mayfield threw 30 or fewer passes in 10 of 16 games and only topped 300 yards passing twice in 2020. It’s possible he could be your best bet as a backup, but only if the schedule lines him up for a shootout in your starter’s bye week. (CBSSports.com)

Brown, A. – TB (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Antonio Brown, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6/23) Advice: Brown finally returned to NFL action in 2020 by joining Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Although at times he flashed what made him so unstoppable with Pittsburgh (the ability to create separation at all three levels with explosive after-the-catch ability), he put it all together in just one game. Brown was efficient in the red zone and has been at his most efficient there (small sample size) with Brady. Although the path to volume in Tampa seems blocked, talent and rapport can win out, making Brown a plus late-round flier. (CBSSports.com)
