Rosario Dawson says it’s ‘scary’ dating a politician

Rosario Dawson has lived her life in the spotlight for a long time, but her most recent relationship comes with a new set of challenges.

Dawson, 40, is currently dating New Jersey senator Cory Booker, who ran for president in 2020.

The actress spoke with Women’s Health and dished on her life with the politician.

“I could be asked to serve my country, and that’s scary to me because I’m a wild person,” she said.

However, Dawson has considered what she would do in partnership with her beau in the future.

“We are excited about what we can create together,” said the “Rent” star, explaining that their vision includes opening community centers in underserved areas.

Because of busy schedules, the duo will occasionally miss spending the night with each other, but Booker, 50, more than makes up for it.

“Every morning that we don’t wake up together, he sends me a song, which means every morning he holds our relationship in his mind and his heart for a few minutes before he goes off into his big day,” said Dawson, who also wears an anchor pendant, a gift from Booker to remind her of his goal to offer stability.

“I feel a lot of life ahead of us. It’s been beautiful feeling nurtured and taken care of,” adds the actress. “I’ve never been this close to someone. We make sure we connect. That’s something I’ve taken for granted in the past.”

Pentagon deploys low-yield nuclear weapon for first time: report

The Pentagon Tuesday said it has deployed a new low-yield submarine-launched ballistic missile armed with a nuclear warhead to counter Russia’s arsenal of smaller tactical nuclear weapons.

“This supplemental capability strengthens deterrence and provides the United States a prompt, more survivable low-yield strategic weapon,” John Rood, the undersecretary of defense for policy, said in a statement.

He says the weapon, known as W76-2, lowers the risk of nuclear war.

Critics say low-yield nuclear weapons lower the threshold for using nuclear weapons, increasing the risk of nuclear war. And while W76-2’s strength is classified, experts say it likely has around one-third the power of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

PENTAGON RAISES NUMBER OF US TROOPS WHO SUSTAINED BRAIN INJURIES IN IRAN MISSILE STRIKE

The warhead is the first major addition to the U.S. nuclear arsenal in decides and shows a departure from the Obama administration’s policy of lessening dependence of nukes for deterrence.

Details about where and when the weapon was deployed are classified, Rood said.

(Lt. Rebecca Rebarich/U.S. Navy via AP)

The Trump administration aims to “dissuade” Russia from thinking it could win a war in Europe if it used its own low-yield weapons first, forcing the U.S. to either surrender or respond with full-scale nuclear war.

Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash, said “The administration’s decision to deploy the W76-2 warhead remains a misguided and dangerous one,” Reuters reported. “The deployment of this warhead does nothing to make Americans safer.”

Bruce Blair, co-founder of Global Zero, an international group advocating for the elimination of nuclear arms, also opposes W76-2 and testified in front of Congress last year.

“We must not delude ourselves into thinking lower-yield nukes are more usable in a conflict,” the former Air Force nuclear weapons officer testified.

“Any use of this sea-based weapon — either first or second — will risk stoking the flames of conflict and escalating to all-out nuclear war,” Blair said. “A wiser response to an enemy’s use of one or two low-yield nukes would be to refrain from nuclear escalation while unleashing America’s ferocious and decisive conventional juggernaut.”

At least 10 people– including American– test positive for coronavirus on cruise ship off Japan, 3,700 quarantined

At least 10 people aboard a cruise ship off Japan have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to a statement Wednesday night from Princess Cruises. The news comes as infections outside of China continue to increase.

All 2,666 guests and 1,045 crewmembers aboard the Diamond Princess have been quarantined for over a day and are likely to remain for “at least 14 days as required by the Ministry of Health,” according to the cruise line.

The infected passengers include one from the U.S., two from Australia, three from Japan, three from Hong Kong and one crew member from the Philippines.

“Princess Cruises can confirm that the first phase of health screening of all guests and crew onboard Diamond Princess, by the Japanese Ministry of Health, has been completed,” the statement said. “These 10 persons, who have been notified, will be taken ashore by Japanese Coast Guard watercraft and transported to local hospitals for care by shoreside Japanese medical professionals.”

The confirmed cases — all over the age of 50 — were based on the results of 31 out of the 273 tested so far who had cough or fever symptoms, Japan’s state broadcaster NHK said, according to the BBC.

The number of worldwide infections rose to 24,324 on Wednesday, with the death toll now at 490 — only two have died outside of China so far.

Mark Meadows: Pelosi ripped up Trump’s speech the way she’s ripping apart America

House Freedom Caucus member Mark Meadows, R-N.C. reacted to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., tearing up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union as the president concluded his remarks.

Meadows agreed with Sean Hannity, host of “Hannity,” on Tuesday that Trump’s speech was the most compelling case to Americans for the question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?”

“It’s a significant accomplishment when you look at we can celebrate,” he said.

“We saw Nancy Pelosi ripping up a speech just like Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi and others have been trying to rip apart America for the last three years,” he said. “But Jim [Jordan] is exactly right. The president showed us what we are about.”

RUSH LIMBAUGH RECEIVES PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM

He called the speech the greatest State of the Union to be given in the House chamber.

Pelosi tore up the speech before leaving her seat, and later told reporters that the shredding was, “the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives.”

The White House responded almost immediately by referencing several of the guests of honor whom Trump had introduced during the State of the Union address.

“Speaker Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks. The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family,” the White House said in a tweet. “That’s her legacy.”

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., told Fox News that Trump’s speech was “rough” in parts. Responding to Pelosi ripping up the speech, he added, “None of that’s good.”

Speaking to Fox News’ “Hannity,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called Pelosi’s actions “disgraceful” and “disgusting,” saying they made him “angry.”

David Bossie: Trump SOTU address showcases success of his America First policies

Westlake Legal Group image David Bossie: Trump SOTU address showcases success of his America First policies fox-news/us/congress fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/state-of-the-union fox news fnc/opinion fnc David Bossie d382296e-ef6c-559f-80e0-8e4fb73c352d article

Under the leadership of President Trump, the state of our union is as strong as it has ever been – and the best is yet to come.

The president walked into the well of the U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday night for his third State of the Union address with great purpose and a message of hopeful optimism that America’s best days are still ahead of us. His speech was a showcase for American exceptionalism.

There are countless reasons for Americans to feel optimistic about the future, because we are better off today than we were four years ago. We’re in the midst of the great American comeback – but the Democrats and their allies in the anti-Trump media can’t come to grips with that reality.

TRUMP TAKES ON ‘RADICAL LEFT’ IN DEFIANT AND DRAMATIC STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS; PELOSI RIPS UP SPEECH

The stark contrast between President Trump’s extraordinarily successful tenure in office and the agenda-less Democratic Party’s utter disarray – from the impeachment circus to the Iowa caucus fiasco – is undeniable.

Trump and the Republicans are thriving, while the entire Democratic establishment is falling apart at the seams. Independent voters are taking note.

After eight years of economic and military atrophy under the Barack Obama-Joe Biden administration, the forgotten men and women of our country needed some good news. The election of Donald Trump provided it.

And now with 36 months in the White House under his belt, President Trump has kept his promises and the United States of America is firing on all cylinders as a result.

The State of the Union was the perfect opportunity for President Trump to once again bypass the dishonest liberal media that simply won’t cover the president objectively. Consider these accomplishments:

More from Opinion

Seven million new jobs have been created on President Trump’s watch. National unemployment is at a low point not seen in half a century. African-American, Hispanic, and female unemployment rates are at historic lows. A record number of Americans are employed.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is reaching uncharted heights.

America is producing more energy than any other nation and is no longer reliant upon energy from the Middle East.

President Trump is renegotiating bad trade deals so that we finally have fair-trade agreements prioritizing the American worker instead of our nation-state competitors.

A total of 187 Trump nominees have been confirmed by the Senate to serve on the federal judiciary – including two Supreme Court justices. They will strictly interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.

And while rebuilding our depleted military, President Trump destroyed the ISIS caliphate and eliminated two of the world’s worst terrorist masterminds.

Tuesday night President Trump looked on with great pride as he recognized Americans in the House gallery who represent the backbone of our great nation that remains the envy of the world.

The president knows full well what makes America great: strong families; the men and women in our armed forces; our police and Border Patrol; our teachers; and the other Americans who go to work every day in all sorts of jobs without fanfare to help to create the strongest economy on Earth.

The President also recognized Venezuela’s “legitimate president” Juan Guaido to remind us that “freedom unifies the soul” and that socialism belongs on the ash heap of history.

First lady Melania Trump placing the Presidential Medal of Freedom around the neck of “the Babe Ruth of talk radio” Rush Limbaugh – who disclosed Monday that he’s suffering from advanced lung cancer– was icing on the cake.

With the Democrats’ partisan attempt to remove Trump from office after impeaching him in the House on the verge of being in the rearview mirror with his certain acquittal in the Senate Wednesday, the president looked like a leader who refuses to be sidetracked by the deranged left-wing resistance led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

As President Trump said in his address to Congress, there’s simply too much work still to do for the American people.

Despite the completely unreasonable and unethical behavior of Democrats over the past three years, President Trump once again offered them an opportunity to come to the table and work with him on important issues for the American people.

The Democrats would be wise to accept the invitation because the American people are wondering if these Democrats care about anything but wasteful political investigations and divisive impeachment witch hunts.

The president will press to lower prescription drug prices for all Americans – the Democrats should come along.

The president wants more tax relief for the American middle class – the Democrats should participate.

The president wants to finish securing our southern border – the Democrats should help with the effort.

The American people want President Trump to finish the trade deal with China – the Democrats should engage.

The American people want bipartisan legislative action like infrastructure reform to come out of Congress. Pelosi can make it happen if she’s willing to get treatment for the Trump Derangement Syndrome she suffers from.

CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR OPINION NEWSLETTER

The president reiterated Tuesday night with great resolve his clarion call that our beloved constitutional republic will never be a socialist country, while making the point that 132 irresponsible Democratic members of Congress have “endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our health care system, wiping out the private health insurance plans of 180 million Americans.”

Trump is absolutely right and the American people agree. Socialism would completely obliterate our “shining city upon a hill” that President Trump is dedicated to passing on to future generations.

There were many touching moments with terrific stories highlighting American greatness in Trump’s State of the Union address – yet Pelosi ripped up the speech on national television because she can’t compete with the fact that America is back thanks to the leadership of President Trump.

The president made clear that the United States is flourishing because his America First policies are getting the job done. It took the drive of an American business icon who is the ultimate political outsider to make it happen.

Bravo, Mr. President. Let’s keep going!

Ivanka Trump: ‘For us not to come together as a nation and celebrate America’s success is not forgivable’

Westlake Legal Group image Ivanka Trump: 'For us not to come together as a nation and celebrate America's success is not forgivable' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/news-events/state-of-the-union fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc f7805297-d03c-59d5-8ba0-823162a84521 article

Adviser to the president and First daughter Ivanka Trump joined “Hannity” following her father’s State of the Union speech where she reacted to the Democrats’ reactions to the president.

“For us not to come together as a nation and celebrate America’s success is not forgivable,” Trump told host Sean Hannity. “And I think that’s why the viewers who were watching today and realizing and celebrating alongside the president, alongside the rest of this country, what is happening. Because we have completely changed the trajectory of this country.”

TRUMP SNUBS PELOSI AT STATE OF THE UNION, DOESN’T SHAKE HER HAND

“And the president is unabashed in being excited about it and celebrating it and just being a cheerleader for American excellence,” Trump added.

Before the speech, President Trump overlooked a handshake from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and during the speech’s conclusion Pelosi made it a point to rip apart a copy of the president’s speech in what became a purely partisan affair.

The First daughter told Hannity that the president’s primary goal was to “uplift” all Americans.

“What motivates this president and what motivates all of us who work for him is the desire to uplift all Americans, which is why it was so important to start at the beginning of the speech talking about how all Americans are benefiting from these policies,” Trump said, adding. “Especially blue-collar Americans and those who have been left behind.”

Trump continued to tout her father’s accomplishments.

“The fact that of all the new jobs created last year, 73 percent of them went to Americans that were marginalized, that were on the sidelines of the economy, not even those that were unemployed, completely on the sidelines,” Trump said. “The fact that 10 million Americans have been lifted out of welfare. It is amazing. And he wants that for all Americans.”

Democrats, Sanders rip Trump on economic boasts in State of the Union responses

Westlake Legal Group image Democrats, Sanders rip Trump on economic boasts in State of the Union responses fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/news-events/state-of-the-union fox news fnc/politics fnc e0ed3e1f-0bab-5240-a29d-253226a5eb8d article Andrew O'Reilly

Democrats on Tuesday night offered a harsh rebuke to President Trump’s State of the Union address, slamming the president on issues ranging from the economy and health care to gun control and climate change.

Amid the backdrop of the approaching general election in November – and Trump’s recent impeachment in the House – Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer drew a sharp contrast between Trump’s vision for the United States and the Democrats in her party’s official response to the president’s address.

“It doesn’t matter what the president says about the stock market,” Whitmer said during her speech from East Lansing High School. “What matters is that millions of people struggle to get by or don’t have enough money at the end of the month after paying for transportation, student loans, or prescription drugs.”

TRUMP GOES ON OFFENSIVE AGAINST SOCIALISM

Democrats’ selection of Whitmer underscored their determination to improve their performance in the Midwest in November’s elections. Trump won over enough working-class white voters there to also score slender victories in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and to win Ohio handily.

Whitmer added: “American workers are hurting.  In my own state. Our neighbors in Wisconsin. And Ohio. And Pennsylvania. All over the country. Wages have stagnated, while CEO pay has skyrocketed.”

Democrats won House control in 2018 by lambasting unsuccessful efforts by Trump and congressional Republicans to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law. Democrats say they will concentrate on health care in this year’s campaign as well, including opposing an administration-backed federal lawsuit aimed at declaring former President Barack Obama’s statute unconstitutional.

“It’s pretty simple. Democrats are trying to make your health care better. Republicans in Washington are trying to take it away,” Whitmer said.

Trump captured Michigan in 2016 by fewer than 11,000 votes by appealing to lower-earning workers, winning a state that hadn’t voted for the GOP presidential candidate since 1988.

TRUMP SNUBS PELOSI AT STATE OF THE UNION, DOESN’T SHAKE HER HAND

Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, echoed Whitmer’s criticism about the president’s economic policies, which he touted during his address.

“President Trump’s economic policies have created inequality that is creating two Americas: one where the wealthiest 1 percent benefit and one that leaves too many farmers, businesses, and working families behind,” Escobar said in her speech from El Paso, Texas.

She added: “And at the same time, instead of investing in our children’s future and in opportunity, the President has exploded the debt by more than $3 trillion – all to give billion-dollar tax cuts to the wealthiest few.”

Escobar also focused on the Trump administration’s hardline immigration policies, and referenced the mass shooting last summer in her hometown of El Paso, where the shooter specifically targeted Latinos.

“Just before [the shooter] began his killing spree, he posted his views online and used hateful language like the very words used by President Trump to describe immigrants and Latinos,” Escobar said.

Escobar also touched on Trump’s impeachment, saying that he’d jeopardized the next election and threatened national security with his efforts to pressure Ukraine, an ally fighting Russian-backed insurgents, to produce damaging information on political rival Joe Biden.

“We Democrats will continue to fight for truth and for what is right. No one is above the law,” Escobar said.

Along with the official Democratic responses, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont gave his own response to Trump’s address from New Hampshire.

Speaking just a day after the Iowa Caucus – and with results still trickling in – the 2020 presidential candidate lambasted Trump’s policies in what he said he hoped was the president’s “very last State of the Union address.”

Sanders spend most of his speech criticizing Trump’s boosts about the economy and arguing that the White House’s current policies only benefit wealthy Americans.

President Trump has told the American people that the economy today is booming today like it has never boomed before,” Sanders said. “For Trump and his billionaire friends, he is right. The economy is really booming for them.”

Sanders added: “We are now experiencing more income and wealth inequality now than any time in the last 100 years… This what Trump really means when he talks about a booming economy.”

Sanders also ripped Trump for failing to mention mention climate change or gun violence in his State of the Union speech.

“In the year 2020, how can a president of the United States give a State of the Union speech and not mention climate change,” Sanders said. “The leading scientists in the world tell us that climate change is the leading existential threat facing humanity.”

Sean Hannity praised President Trump’s third State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night — which drew groans from Democrats in attendance and prompted a furious House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to rip up her copy of Trump’s speech as soon as it concluded in a remarkable scene.

“I have seen a lot of State of the Unions over the years. Tonight, perhaps, by far the best I’ve ever seen,” Hannity moments after the president’s address concluded.

“You saw the president tonight,” Hannity continued. “He is pushing prosperity, freedom, security and moments ago he delivered the most compelling, uplifting speech of his life, highlighting the groundbreaking success. Jobs in America booming. Income soaring. Poverty in America lowering.”

“We are highly respected all over the world,” the primetime host went on. “Tonight was about American greatness. It includes brave men and women who make this country the single greatest place God ever gave man.”

Hannity also responded to the somber expressions and audible murmurs from Democrats in the chamber at various points of  the president’s speech, comparing their reaction to a “Saturday Night Live skit.”

“They are clearly living tonight in a very different alternative reality. Another America that I don’t recognize,” he said.

Taking aim at Pelosi for ripping up Trump’s speech upon the conclusion of his address, Hannity called the remarkable scene “one of the most classless things ever done in the history of the State of the Union.”

“Despite the unyielding rage from the Democrats,” he concluded, “he [Trump] delivered a powerful optimistic, patriotic speech with real statistics and success behind it. Conservatism works. It’s working now, and it’s working for the American people.”

Sen. Marco Rubio: Trump SOTU address reminds us of what matters to America

President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night was a much-needed and refreshing reminder that life does indeed exist outside the Washington bubble.

The president spoke to the real hopes and anxieties felt by Americans who live outside of the Beltway bubble. He spoke to the hundreds of millions of Americans who do not spend each day refreshing their Twitter accounts to find out the latest “hot take.”

These are Americans who are too busy with life to pass their time hooked to the ebb and flow of partisan politics. They are tired of talking heads treating our national politics as a game – a glitzy contact sport in pursuit of clickable articles and viral videos, but divorced from the actual issues our country is facing.

TRUMP TAKES ON ‘RADICAL LEFT’ IN DEFIANT AND DRAMATIC STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS; PELOSI RIPS UP SPEECH

As Americans watch the deterioration of our national unity and rapid politicization of seemingly every aspect of their lives – from sports to Hollywood to pop music – they understandably tune it out.

Instead, Americans are worried about how expensive it is to raise a family, to go to the doctor and to pay for college. They are worried about threats from China, from Iran, from terrorists, from despotic regimes in our own hemisphere, and now from the Wuhan coronavirus.

Americans are worried about – and impacted every day – by the decades-long collapse of stable, dignified work that has allowed generations to give back to their children, charities and places of worship.

This is what people are talking about in the real world. And they’re right to be concerned.

For all of our nation’s history, the American Dream has been sustained by the promise not only of individual newcomers “making it,” but by the ability of working Americans

to raise families and build strong communities together.

Today the ability of regular people to make sure their kids can enjoy the same opportunities they had growing up seems precarious.

Outside the partisan political bubble, this is what American families from across the country and all walks of life are talking about. They are topics that seem utterly foreign to the current, 24-7 media obsession with impeachment and, before that, invalidating the results of the 2016 election that put Donald Trump in the Oval Office.

Americans want solutions to their problems, but they want us to focus on solving them without our nation embracing socialism – a set of ideas that have eroded individual freedoms and evaporated the national prosperity of each country where they have been tried.

The Democratic Party is currently experiencing a radical and dangerous turn to the left. Its politicians and their media abettors are waging a war on our nation’s institutions, running an inquisition against any people or ideas they deem insufficiently “woke.”

Many Democratic politicians now openly espouse the same socialist policies that led millions of Americans’ ancestors to flee their home countries in the first place. And now they have elevated their obsession with impeachment above the priorities of the American people.

These are the same people who, during the Obama administration, told Americans that they had to accept a nation in decline. These are the same people who continue to say that families, communities, and faith need to take a backseat to bureaucrats, technocrats and the omnipotence of Washington.

Thankfully, President Trump rejected that false premise four years ago and has since taken important steps to revive America’s economic engine.

In his State of the Union Address, the president painted an equally stark choice for America’s future by speaking to the actual, real-life concerns about family, work and communities. It is time we focus on what matters to the American people, not to Washington pundits.
