  1. Republicans fret over divisive candidates Republicans are sounding the alarm that divisive candidates running across the country could cost them key Senate and gubernatorial races next year. The party is concerned that disruptive contenders could hurt their chances of keeping Senate seats in Missouri, Alabama and Wisconsin and flipping the governor’s mansion in Virginia. Republicans are also nervously watching primaries for open Senate seats in North Carolina and Ohio and Democratic-held seats in Arizona and Georgia. Nearly a dozen GOP strategist
  2. US, China agree to cooperate on climate crisis with urgency The United States and China, the world’s two biggest carbon polluters, agreed to cooperate to curb climate change with urgency, just days before President Joe Biden hosts a virtual summit of world leaders to discuss the issue. The agreement was reached by U.S. special envoy for climate John Kerry and his Chinese counterpart Xie Zhenhua during two days of talks in Shanghai last week, according to a joint statement. The two countries “are committed to cooperating with each other and with other countri
  3. 'Our American way of policing is on trial': Law enforcement officers respond to Chauvin trial As he prepares for work each morning, Tighe O’Meara, the police chief in Ashland, Oregon, tunes in to coverage of the trial of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis officer charged in the killing of George Floyd last year. O’Meara doesn’t watch to decide whether he thinks Chauvin is guilty; he sees Chauvin’s culpability as “an open-and-shut case.” He watches for signs of hope for his profession. He found some in Chauvin’s former colleagues and bosses who
  4. Some charged with storming U.S. Capitol try to use defense that they were there to record history as journalists The Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol in January created a trove of self-incriminating evidence, thoroughly documenting their actions and words in videos and social media posts. Now some of the camera-toting people in the crowd are claiming they were only there to record history as journalists, not to join a deadly insurrection. It’s unlikely that any of the self-proclaimed journalists can mount a viable defense on the First Amendment’s free speec
  5. Marjorie Taylor Greene to introduce resolution to expel Maxine Waters GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.) announced on Sunday that she plans to introduce a resolution to expel Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) from Congress. Greene in a statement on Sunday said that she will "be introducing a resolution to expel Rep. Maxine Waters from Congress for her continual incitement of violence." The Republican lawmaker specifically targeted Waters for speaking to protesters at a demonstration in Brooklyn Center, Minn., on Saturday. Protests broke out in the ci
  6. Nazi sympathizer who stormed Capitol poses a threat to Jews, Justice Department says The Justice Department said Friday that a Nazi sympathizer who stormed the US Capitol on January 6 poses a threat to Jewish residents in his native New Jersey and therefore shouldn't be released from jail. The alleged Capitol rioter, Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, was a well-known Nazi sympathizer at the Navy base where he worked in New Jersey. A federal judge ordered him detained last month while he awaits trial, but he has filed new motions with the court seeking his release.
  7. Police in Minnesota round up journalists covering protest, force them on the ground and take pictures of their faces Journalists covering a protest in a Minneapolis suburb Friday night were forced on their stomachs by law enforcement, rounded up and were only released after having their face and press credentials photographed. The incident occurred hours after a judge issued a temporary order barring the Minnesota State Patrol from using physical force or chemical agents against journalists, according to court documents. It also barred police from seizing photographic,
  8. I'm not sure that first one is uplifting as much as it is heartbreaking. The daughter puts on a happy face, but it must be gut wrenching (to say the least) to have your own mother not recognize you as her daughter.
  9. YouTube is notorious for being inconsistent in the application of its rules and/or standards.
  10. ‘Ripe for fraud’: Coronavirus vaccination cards support burgeoning scams One listing offered eBay customers an “Authentic CDC Vaccination Record Card” for $10.99. Another promised the same but for $9.49. A third was more oblique, offering a “Clear Pouch For CDC Vaccination Record Card” for $8.99, but customers instead received a blank vaccination card (and no pouch). All three listings were posted by the same eBay user, who goes by “asianjackson” — using an account registered to a man who works as a pharmacist in the Chicago area — and all were illegal, federal regulato
  11. Suspected poacher killed by elephants at South African national park A suspected poacher was killed by a herd of breeding elephants that he encountered while fleeing from park rangers, according to South African officials. Three people attempted to run away after they were spotted by rangers at the Kruger National Park, one of Africa's largest game reserves, on Saturday, South African National Parks officials said. After one of the suspects was captured, he told park rangers the group had run into a herd of elephants, adding that he was not sure if his alleg

  13. Now you tell me. Shudder. No. Left wondering how @clietas knows what this is in the first place.
  14. Worldwide COVID-19 death toll tops a staggering 3 million The global death toll from the coronavirus topped a staggering 3 million people Saturday amid repeated setbacks in the worldwide vaccination campaign and a deepening crisis in places such as Brazil, India and France. The number of lives lost, as compiled by Johns Hopkins University, is about equal to the population of Kyiv, Ukraine; Caracas, Venezuela; or metropolitan Lisbon, Portugal. It is bigger than Chicago (2.7 million) and equivalent to Philadelphia and Dallas combined. Click on the link for the
  15. That looks a lot like one of the dogs I walk. She loves to chase/fetch and if I'm too slow with the door will jump like a pogo stick...boing, boing. Funny, when we play catch on the tennis courts she always waits for the ball to hit first and then jumps up in the air to make the catch on the first hop. Very high energy.
  16. States see rise in unused vaccines as demand flattens, shifting focus to hesitancy In the beginning, there were tens of thousands of calls for coronavirus vaccination slots. The residents trying to make appointments at the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department in January overtaxed the rural West Virginia community’s telephone provider, causing a temporary system outage. “No amount of phone capability was going to match the public’s demand,” Dr. Sherri Young, the county’s health officer, said. But over the last few weeks, she’s seen a shift. The cl
  17. Trump supporters discussed how to execute members of Congress prior to Capitol siege Supporters of former President Donald Trump discussed executing members of Congress just weeks before the riot at the Capitol. In discussions on TheDonald.win forum, according to a new report provided to the Washington Post, members debated the best method for building a gallows and how many nooses might be needed. Others argued instead that a guillotine would showcase better symbolism, but lamented over the likely difficulties in transporting such a large blade.
  18. Mike Lindell's Fans Confused as Frank Social Media Site Fails to Launch Fans of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on the chat app Telegram were confused on Friday as his new social media network failed to come online. In a video posted to a placeholder website this month, the Donald Trump-supporting businessman said people seeking early entry could submit their cell phone numbers to get VIP access to the platform that would start "Thursday night at midnight." As the hours passed and Thursday turned to Friday morning, some Telegram followers of Lindell's verified Tel
