    CNN host Don Lemon called out the hypocrisy on the part of Republicans praising and quoting Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in glowing tweets on his holiday, when they have also stood by as Donald Trump pushed racist lies like the Birther conspiracy or helped incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol. In a long monologue during his Monday night show in the MLK holiday, Lemon began by playing disturbing footage of the pro-Trump insurrectionists invading Congress and saying the events on January 6th were “threatening our democracy.” “On the day we remember the life and work of Martin Luther King,” Lemon noted, “even as the current president, until Wednesday at noon anyway, deliberately tried to divide us. That as more and more of the Republicans who supported this president, who stood by him through everybody racist attack, even as he tried to disenfranchise millions of Americans, many of them voters of color. Those Republicans...

    Jake Tapper took a shot at CNN’s rivals as he defended his own network from H.R. McMaster’s comments about how media polarization has impacted America. As Tapper interviewed McMaster on Sunday, he asked the former national security adviser if he thought Donald Trump’s second impeachment is a “partisan” affair, even with the president’s incitement of an insurrectionist mob at the U.S. Capitol. When the conversation turned toward Trump’s political future, McMaster said it would be “terribly divisive for our country” if Trump tried to run for office again, but then he offered commentary on how America reached its enflamed sociopolitical state. We’ve been talking about the president’s responsibility, but it didn’t start there, right? This loss of confidence these large portions of the population which feel disenfranchised, that lack confidence in our common identity as Americans, who lack confidence in our democratic principles and institutions and processes… We need to...

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes opened his show Friday night with a direct message to Republicans who have “twisted themselves into knots” to not condemn President Donald Trump more forcefully up to this point. Hayes said he’s not talking about “hardcore Trump fans” or Republicans who already openly despise Trump, but about “institutional Republicans” and others who don’t like Trump but have avoided criticizing him more directly because “the base really loves him.” “I think I have a sense of the bargain you have made with yourself. How you have justified what you’ve done the last few years. And I genuinely get it. Life is complicated. There’s no such thing as purity, we all make compromises in this world. You have told yourself that if Trump is going to be president, ‘isn’t it better that I work in my small sphere to make this thing as good as it can be?'” Hayes...

    DEAR JOAN: My wife has two half wine barrels with plastic liners, several water plants in 1 gallon pots, and three 3-inch goldfish in each barrel. Recently she found the fish gone and the plants all tipped over — a total mess and her pet fish of four years is gone. This must be a raccoon. Because the heavy gallon pots were all tipped over, I don’t think a rat could do that, could it? It for sure happened at night. What do you think? Kurt, San Jose DEAR KURT: Sounds exactly like raccoons at work. They have the strength and dexterity to accomplish the pot tipping, and raccoons love fish. If your wife wants to replace her pets and keep them safe, consider netting the barrels at night. You also could place a radio nearby, softly playing an all-night talk station. DEAR JOAN: I keep a hummingbird feeder out...
    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo appeared to defend President Donald Trump’s voters during a Thursday evening segment with colleague Don Lemon. While Cuomo did not agree with them, he argued that there was a large swath of Americans who supported and voted for Trump but had nothing to do with the violent riot Jan. 6 that resulted in the breach of the Capitol Building. (RELATED: Don Lemon Says All Trump Voters Are ‘In The Crowd’ With KKK And Capitol Rioters) WATCH: “I will tell you this. There are a lot of people who voted for Trump who don’t agree with you,” Cuomo said. Lemon, who was criticized for saying just one day earlier that all Trump voters might as well have been part of the crowd that had stormed the Capitol, doubled down. “That’s fine. They are allowed to their own opinion. It doesn’t mean they’re right, but they’re allowed...
    BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) -- On Thursday, many Bay Area seniors struggled to sign up for coronavirus vaccines, while others found quick success."We felt so lucky, last night we received an email from our wonderful doctor," said Jan Buckley. Jan and her husband Jim, who are 75 and 80, received an email from their Sutter internist, who told them to sign up for a vaccine appointment through their my health online chart. And by Thursday morning, they were getting vaccinated at a Sutter clinic in Berkeley.RELATED: CA is allowing residents 65 and older to get scarce coronavirus vaccines"We made our appointments last night, and we went over this morning, about 45 minutes early and there were only three people in line," said Jan.

    ‘The Mandalorian’ Becomes First Non-Netflix Show to Top Nielsen Streaming Chart American teachers grapple with patchy COVID-19 vaccine rollout Colin Cowherd Makes Convincing Case For NFL Teams to Call Nick Saban, But Hes Not the One Who Needs Convincing Colin Cowherd simply cannot believe that NFL teams aren't reaching out to Nick Saban to see if he'd be interested in giving it the old professional try. Because when you stop to think about it, he'd more than likely be great and far more worth taking a swing on than about four or five of new coaches who will fill the open roles before next year. The Miami Dolphins failure is long in the rearview mirror and Saban would presumably have his pick of projects from which to identify the most success-ready. © Provided by The Big Lead Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images Cowherd rebutted the potential argument that at age...
    A mother who decided with her husband to puruse 'gender creative parenting' and let their child choose their own gender, has revealed how people have accused them of 'child abuse'.  Dr Kyl Myers, who is originally from Salt Lake City but now lives in Australia with her husband Brent, told Mamamia that they've been flooded with social media comments, emails and even letters at her workplace from people who believe four-year-old Zoomer should be taken away. She explained: 'We didn't assign a binary girl-or-boy gender to our child, Zoomer, at birth; we don't disclose Zoomer's genitals to people who don't need to know.  'We used the gender-neutral pronouns they/them/their for Zoomer until they could tell us what pronouns and labels fit best; and Zoomer learns about and explores gender without stereotypical expectations or restrictions.' The couple decided to do 'regular pronoun checks' with Zoomer who told them: 'I love he/him', around...
    (CNN)California adults 65 and older are now eligible to get the Covid-19 vaccine, state officials announced Wednesday in a bid to boost the number of people who receive a shot, even as demand "continues to far exceed supply.""We are significantly increasing our efforts to get these vaccines administered, get them out of freezers and get them into people's arms," Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a video message posted to his Twitter account. More than 90,000 Americans could die of Covid-19 in next three weeks, CDC forecast showsBut in Los Angeles County, seniors won't be allowed to receive shots until the county's health care workers are vaccinated -- a process that's expected to stretch into February -- said Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, citing supply shortages."Neither the state nor us is wanting to divert the strategy to get health care workers vaccinated," Ferrer said Wednesday during a virtual briefing.

    (CNN)We can all agree that health care workers on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic deserve all the good things in life. One North Carolina nurse now has the pocket change to treat herself to at least some of them. Terri Watkins works in the Covid unit at a long term facility in Durham. And she just won a $1 million jackpot, the North Carolina Education Lottery said this week. "Just seeing some of the things that I've had to see, I am very thankful," she told the lottery. "I had been praying for something to help me with this situation. It really is a great thing. I'm very blessed."It's a rough time to be a Covid unit nurse as the pandemic rages uncontrollably.

Newly-elected Missouri Congresswoman Cori Bush blasted her colleagues who are not welcoming the new security protocols in the U.S. Capitol Building.  Metal detectors were installed early Tuesday, less than a week after the deadly Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol following the pro-Donald Trump “Stop the Steal” rally.

    When a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) was among a group of a few dozen lawmakers and staff on the floor of the U.S. House, feet away from insurrectionists pounding at the chamber doors in an attempt to violently overthrow the federal government. In the nick of time, that group was rushed to a secure room, where they waited out the rest of attack. Hours later, the House returned to the same place to finish the job of certifying the Electoral College results, where Connolly watched as 121 of his Republican colleagues forged ahead to vote in favor of overturning the 2020 election results—precisely what the mob was threatening Congress to do. For the Virginia Democrat, and many of his colleagues, that is a vote, and a day, those Republicans cannot come back from. “I don’t see how we return to business...

    Patricia Heaton shared a message about faith amid the confusion and chaos of the past few days.  After the riot at the U.S. Capitol, the news has been dominated by alarming stories on the left and right ahead of the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration.

    CNN’s Don Lemon railed against newly-elected Republican Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller, for positively invoking Hitler in a speech at the pro-Trump rally on Wednesday, when she said the Nazi leader “was right on one thing, the children are our future.” During his Friday night show, Lemon segued from a MAGA mob stalking and chanting “Traitor!” at Sen. Lindsey Graham at Washington’s airport to Miller’s comments at Wednesday’s pro-Trump rally on The Mall. In her defense of Trump, Miller, who was just sworn in to Congress last weekend, read from prepared remarks and, at one point, cited the Nazi leader to make an incredibly trite, and clichéd point that numerous other cultural figures have made over the years, including Whitney Houston. “We should be unashamed to represent our values. The family is foundational to the stability of our country,” Miller said. “Each generation has the responsible to teach the next generation. If we win...
    Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Thursday that the Republican Party leadership doesn’t “like their own voters.” “This really is the main problem, on the right anyway. The people who run the Republican Party don’t really like their own voters,” Carlson said on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “And they especially don’t want the voters that Trump brought,” Carlson continued. “Trump brought the party’s ranks noticeably downscale, ‘from the country club to the trailer park,’ as they often sneer. And this horrifies them. Many Republicans in Washington now despise the people they’re supposed to represent and protect.” Carlson claimed that this view is shared by “our entire leadership class” who have rejected Trump supporters. “You rarely hear it spoken out loud but this is the truth: a very specific form of intra-white loathing is at the core of the reaction to Donald Trump.” (RELATED: Jonathan Turley Says Removing Trump...

    Sen. Josh Hawley assigned no blame to himself for Wednesday's MAGA mob that trashed the Capitol Building, despite giving a clinched-fist salute to the crowd before the siege.  'The responsibility of violent criminal acts is with violent criminals,' he told CNN Thursday.  Hawley was first asked whether President Donald Trump should be blamed for the riot, which left four dead.  'I don't think urging people to come to the Capitol was a good idea,' he told CNN's Manu Raju.   Hawley was branded a traitor after he gave a clinched-first salute to the mob of waiting Trump supporters as he arrived on Capitol Hill for Wednesday's joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College count in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.  Hawley was the first senator who said he'd support a House GOP plan to challenge some of the Electoral College votes from swing states - an effort Trump supported,...

    President Trump's son Eric declared that he would work to remove from office House and Senate Republicans who fail to join his father's bid to challenge the election, fanning the flames of a fight that the president said he is determined to wage. Eric Trump's threat suggests a post-Trump landscape defined by intraparty strife, pitting the president and his base of supporters against lawmakers in their own party. "I will personally work to defeat every single Republican Senator / Congressman who doesn’t stand up against this fraud — they will be primaried in their next election and they will lose," he said in a tweet. The threat to lawmakers draws power from the president's fervent base. Trump's political operation has spearheaded a massive fundraising drive since the November election, with an influx of donations headed straight to the president's new leadership PAC, established on Nov. 9.

    CNN anchor Don Lemon continued to express his disdain towards Trump voters, this time over their support for the president's ongoing election challenge.  During Monday night's handoff with his primetime colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon blasted what he thought was the "ridiculous" argument GOP lawmakers are making doubting the authenticity of President Trump's defeat while not questioning victories from their own party, many of them being on the same ballot in various states.  Lemon then mocked the lawmakers' claims that they are opposing President-elect Biden's Electoral College victory on behalf of the millions of Trump voters and their concerns about claims of voter fraud and irregularities.   CNN'S DON LEMON COMPARES TRUMP SUPPORTERS TO DRUG ADDICTS: 'THEY HAVE TO HIT ROCK BOTTOM' TO GET HELP "Why do they believe that?

    Savannah Rychcik January 5, 2021 0 Comments The 91-year-old British man who gave a viral interview on CNN after receiving his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine has been given a second dose. On Tuesday, Martin Kenyon told CNN he received the second round of his vaccination on Dec. 29. Kenyon said he is in good health and calls the attention he still receives from his first interview “nonsense.” He gave the interview in early December after being included among those who were vaccinated early on in the United Kingdom, as IJR previously reported. Kenyon was asked at the time how he went about getting the vaccine. “I rang up Guy’s Hospital, which I know very well… and I said, ‘What’s this thing? You’re doing the vaccination?’ They said, ‘Yes,’ and then they spent various times asking me questions, about this and that, not very interesting,”...

    On the heels of another controversial Donald Trump rally on Monday night, CNN's Don Lemon is growing more irate. Lemon took aim at Republican leaders who are parroting Trump's baseless election fraud claims, while failing to apply the same logic behind those claims to their own successful electoral races. 'Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that,' Lemon said about people not trusting the election results based off those claims. Don Lemon spent part of his show on Monday night blasting Republican leaders Donald Trump, meanwhile, spent part of his Monday night hosting a rally in Georgia 'Of course, they’re going to believe it.

    CNN anchor Don Lemon said Monday on his show that President Donald Trump’s supporters do not deserve respect because they “believe bullshit.” While discussing Republican lawmakers planning to object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College win, Lemon said, “We have millions and millions of voters who believe this election was illegitimate and it was stolen. Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that. Of course, they’re going to believe it. If you would stop telling them that and start telling them the truth, then maybe they would believe the truth, that the election was not stolen and it was a clean election according to everyone who has investigated, most of them Republicans.” He added, “So stop saying that we must respect Trump supporters who believe bullshit because it is bullshit that you have been feeding them.

    CNN’s Don Lemon erupted on Monday night over President Donald Trump’s increasingly more absurd election conspiracy theories, some of which he regurgitated during his Monday night rally in Georgia. Lemon briefly spoke with Chris Cuomo about Trump’s baseless claims and how Republicans are backing him up despite no evidence of widespread fraud. Lemon was astounded by how Republicans from states Trump is contesting are cool with objecting to the results… but conveniently saying it only applied to the presidential election and not their congressional races. He also pointed out the circular logic (or self-licking ice cream cone, if you will) of telling people not to trust the election results, only to then tout how many people don’t trust the election results: “Why do they believe that? Because you have been telling them that! Of course, they’re going to believe it. If you would stop telling them that and start telling...
    (Reuters) - The State of New York will begin fining hospitals that fail to deploy their allotted COVID-19 vaccine doses within a week of receiving them and will decline to provide them with further doses, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a press conference Monday. The U.S. federal government has distributed more than 13 million vaccines to states and territories around the country but only around 4 million vaccine doses have actually been administered, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that was last updated on Saturday.

And four Brits in Sandwell, Lancs., and Oldham, Greater Manchester, are still going about their daily lives unaware that they're sitting on £1million fortunes. "We’re desperate to find these mystery ticket-holders and unite them with their winnings," Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery told The Sun.

    An Ohio sheriff’s deputy who fatally shot a black man carrying sandwiches used the Christian faith to defend using force once — describing it as “righteous release.” Franklin County sheriff’s deputy Jason Meade, who is also a Baptist pastor, argued that the Bible’s teachings come into play when he has to use what he refers to as “righteous release,” the Columbus Dispatch reported. “That’s what I call it when we have a use of force because every now and then you have to actually use force,” Meade said in a 2018 talk titled “Connecting with the Community.” “We don’t go around looking for it because we don’t have to. Plenty of people would give you that opportunity,” he continued. Meade, who is a pastor at Rosedale Free Will Baptist Church, said that he’s been challenged before about how using force aligns with his faith. “I’ve had people say ‘How...

    It is often seen as a sign of sadness, boredom or regret – but men who sigh a lot are less likely to be depressed or lonely, claim researchers. Experiments at six universities in the US and Europe examined the perception of people who sigh and recorded how often they sighed in a given period. The psychologists, who referred to Charles Darwin’s groundbreaking work The Expression Of The Emotions In Man And Animals, which links sighing to sadness, acknowledged that their findings appeared to be counter-intuitive.

The couple tested positive for Covid-19 in Australia in March, before masks and social distancing became the new normal. “We had it, and it was a tough 10 days, but I think what’s much more important is the second half of the COVID-19 formula is we didn’t give it to anybody,” Hanks told Guthrie.

    Who will be the New York Mets’ third baseman in 2021? By: Andres Chavez December 21, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Mets‘ plans for the infield suffered when starting second baseman Robinson Cano got busted using performance-enhancing drugs for a second time, earning him a season-long suspension for 2021. However, the New York Mets aren’t in a rush to find solutions, as they have more than a few internal options to take over second base. One of them involves moving rookie Andres Gimenez (.263/.333/.398) there, as he made a positive impression and is a plus fielder and baserunner. Another solution would involve writing Jeff McNeil’s name in the keystone, as he has plenty of experience playing there. But what about third base? There are some alternatives there, too.

Perdue remarked his race had become a national race and said if he were to lose, it would return to the economy under the Obama-Biden administration. “Well, who would believe that you could spend a half-a-billion dollars in two Senate seats in one state? But it might happen. But, in my general election, my opponent, just like Kelly Loeffler’s opponent, most of their money is coming from out of state, mostly California and New York.

    Only one House Republican who backed the failed Texas lawsuit in the Supreme Court would agree to appear on Cuomo Prime Time, and after his Friday night performance, it’s unlikely any others will soon. That’s because the discussion between host Chris Cuomo and Rep. Ray LaMalfa (R-CA) devolved into a series of absurd and embarrassing exchanges over the Republican Party’s ongoing denial of reality and attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. From the start, Cuomo began pressing the House Republican to grapple with the reality of the Supreme Court’s unequivocal rejection of the Texas attorney general’s lawsuit against four swing states, which had been touted by the MAGA crowd as a game-changing case and  gained the support of 18 other state attorneys general, 126 GOP Members of the House, as well as President Donald Trump himself. “The idea of accepting the Supreme Court’s decision, do you?” Cuomo asked first thing. “Well, certainly,...
    Small-business owner Joe Shamess has mixed feelings about whether 2021 will be an improvement over this year or just more of the same. “There’s certainly apprehension,” he told the Washington Examiner, because the unknowns are many, from the pace of vaccinations to when infection spikes will finally subside. One thing is for sure: He doesn’t want a repeat of 2020, which was rough. “I hope 2021 will be a lot more back to normal,” he said. Shamess is the co-founder of Flags of Valor, a small business in Winchester, Virginia, that creates handcrafted wooden flags. He started the business in 2015 with Brian Steorts.

None of these lawsuits have ever had a good chance of accomplishing their stated goal, but life being what it is, they have made it difficult to totally foreclose the possibility that Trump will somehow stay in office. (He won’t.) The framework for how this country handles presidential election disputes is codified in the Electoral Count Act of 1878. It provides for three key dates between the election and the inauguration when electoral challenges become increasingly less...
    The state is putting doctors in a really uncomfortable position. Tennessee has long been very committed to ensuring its citizens don't have access to safe and legal abortions. Now, the state got a major assist from the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which just ruled 2-1 that one of Tennesee's abortion restrictions — a ban that forces doctors to interrogate patients — can be enforced.  The Tennessee law is very similar to a measure recently passed in Mississippi. In both instances, doctors are expected to determine why a person is seeking an abortion. But there's no way to determine why someone wants an abortion without interrogating them about their choices.   Tennessee's ban will prohibit abortions if the provider knows a procedure is being sought "because of" the fetus's race or sex, or if a prenatal screening indicates Down syndrome...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) warned this week to avoid hugging loved ones this holiday season to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.  “It’s a horrible thing to think that we would be here as the World Health Organization saying to people, ‘Don’t hug each other.’ It’s terrible,” said Dr. Michael Ryan, WHO’s emergencies chief, during a Monday news conference, according to the Associated Press.  “That is the brutal reality in places like the United States right now,” he added when responding to a question if hugging was considered “close contact.”  “The epidemic in the U.S. is punishing. It’s widespread,” Ryan also said. “It’s quite frankly, shocking, to see one to two persons a minute die in the U.S. — a country with a wonderful, strong health system (and) amazing technological capacities,” he said.  CORONAVIRUS IN THE US: STATE-BY-STATE BREAKDOWN  For context, the U.S. has seen more than 280,000...
    A Minnesota resident who put up Christmas lights outside their home has received a letter from a neighbor describing the display as 'harmful'.  The unnamed homeowner - who lives on Coolidge St in the city of St. Anthony - passed the letter along to Crime Watch Minneapolis, which shared a photo to Twitter on Monday.  The letter, which has been written anonymously, states: 'I couldn't help but notice your Christmas light display. The idea of twinkling, colorful lights are a reminder of divisions that continue to run through our society, a reminder of systemic biases against our neighbors who don't celebrate Christmas or who can't afford to put up lights of their own.' The letter continues: 'We must do work of educating ourselves about the harmful impact an outward facing display like yours can have.' The unknown author of the letter then goes on to 'challenge' the resident to 'respect the dignity...

    2022 GMC Hummer EV sport utility truck "Edition 1"GM DETROIT – General Motors does not plan to offer buyouts to GMC dealers like it has for franchise owners of its Cadillac brand who don't want to invest in stores to sell all-electric vehicles. Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC marketing, said the brand is executing a "very different strategy" regarding EVs than Cadillac. About half of GMC's 1,695 dealers have agreed to invest and sell electric vehicles, beginning next fall with the GMC Hummer EV pickup. "We will not be going down a similar strategy as Cadillac," Aldred said Tuesday during a virtual media event. "What the position is with Hummer EV is that it's a participation agreement for dealers. It is optional for each and every dealer." The Hummer is the first all-electric vehicle for the brand. It also is the debut vehicle for GM's next-generation Ultium batteries and...

    Joe Biden campaigns in Iowa, June 2019.Matthew Putney/AP Photo Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.The next secretary of the US Department of Agriculture will confront two of the most dire problems facing the nation: spiking levels of hunger brought on by the coronavirus pandemic and its economic fallout, and the damage that ever-increasing climate chaos visits upon our most productive farming regions. The New York Times will tell you a different story. According to recent article in the paper, President-elect Joe Biden’s decision about who should run the USDA hinges not on climate or hunger policy expertise, but rather on the question of whether to favor city interests or rural interests. “The delicate proxy clash over the post,” the Times’ Jonathan Martin wrote in in late November, “has pitted Democrats eager...

    Outgoing Michigan Rep. Justin Amash claimed on Sunday evening that members of Congress are not aware of who is writing the legislation that they vote on. “Legislation used to be crafted by legislators, not ‘negotiators,'” he tweeted. “The public needs to know that members of Congress have no idea who the hell is writing our legislation. It’s certainly not us.” The House lawmaker’s comment was a response to Politico reporter Jake Sherman, who reported that Congress is planning to pass a spending bill intended to avoid a government shutdown. According to Sherman, this course of action will give negotiators additional time to determine long-term government spending plans. Amash previously criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her predecessor, Paul Ryan, for shutting down the legislative process. The lawmaker said the pair have complete control over bills and don’t allow other congresspeople to bring legislation to the floor or even amend laws...

    Matthew McConaughey and Russell Brand have lashed out at liberals who 'condescend and patronize' conservatives.  The actors made the comments during a discussion about politics on Brand's Luminary podcast, Under The Skin, which was released earlier this week.  Brand, 45, began by asking McConaughey, 50, whether he had noticed a 'condemnation and criticism of ordinary working people' by those on the left.   '[There is] a kind of offhandedness, like, 'Oh, they're dumb, they're voting for Brexit, they're voting for Trump. I don't like it, and I don't like to hear it,' Brand stated.  McConaughey replied: 'There are a lot [of people] on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize, and are arrogant towards the other 50 percent'.  The actor then went on to criticize some of his Hollywood peers for refusing to accept the results of the 2016 election.   'I'm sure you saw it in our industry when Trump was...
    The Washington Post on Thursday promoted creating a political litmus test by asking Republicans three deciding questions to test whether they had wholehearted faith in the recent election process, leading many to note that the paper has never held Democrats to similar lines of questioning in the past. The Post, which frequently undermined the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency due to the unfounded Russia hoax, set out to demand Republicans answer the proposed questions in order to determine the Republican’s legitimacy. “The Post is asking every Republican member of Congress the same three questions today. We will report back their answers,” the Post wrote. The Post is asking every Republican member of Congress the same three questions today. We will report back their answers.

    CNN host Don Lemon contrasted the current president with the president-elect following Jake Tapper’s hour-long interview with Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Thursday night, likening the  starkly different tone and content to people from two different planets. Speaking with Tapper just moments after the interview wrapped up, Lemon offered his reaction to the overall discussion. “There was a lot, Jake,” Lemon replied. “It feels like we are watching interviews or President-Elect and a president who are on Earth one and Earth two.” “And at this particular Earth, that is, in reality, was very normal, very safe, very sedate,” Lemon continued. “It was welcoming news. It was good to watch. It was good to actually get content.” “We heard no fake news. We heard no conspiracy theories. We heard no personal grievances.” Lemon then offered further praise of the incoming president and his running mate. “We heard a President-Elect and a vice president who want...
    Christmas is almost here. Usually, it's the happiest time that we have. This year of all years, Christmas has a deeper resonance, something closer to its original meaning. In a time of crisis, you inevitably start thinking about the things you might ignore if you were busier and more content.  In general, people tend to become more spiritual, more openly religious when they're suffering. It's not an accident, in fact, it may be the upside of suffering. You get to think beyond the next Amazon delivery for a minute. Of course, not everyone is in favor of all the focus on the big, enduring things -- like our families, what's true and what's not true, eternity itself. All of that tends to diminish the power of the people in charge of our temporal world. For obvious reasons, we take our leaders less seriously when we're reminded that they're people just like we are. They, too, will...
    Airbnb is making it harder to book apartments on New Year's Eve in the United States to limit the risks of illegal parties that could lead to further spread of COVID-19. As of Thursday, travelers throughout North America who don't have positive reviews on their Airbnb profile won't be able to rent a place for a single night on December 31, the San Francisco-based company said in a statement. People planning to spend the last day of the year in properties let through Airbnb will have to pledge they won't organize any parties on New Year's Eve.  They will also have to state that they are aware of the legal charges they might face if they fail to abide by the rule, the company said.    It is being introduced after a similar ruling on Halloween night bookings amid the pandemic and a worldwide crackdown on parties hosted by guests in...

    The strange triangular metal monolith that mysteriously appeared in the remote Utah desert was dismantled and destroyed by a group of four men on Friday who warned 'this is why you don't leave trash in the desert', an eyewitness has revealed. The shiny 12-foot-tall pillar was first spotted on November 18 by Utah Department of Public Safety workers surveying bighorn sheep by helicopter, just east off Canyonlands National Park. Swaths of curious tourists and explorers flocked to the structure and posed for photos with the enigma as the public wondered if it was an art installation, an inexplicable message from an alien life form, or simply just a stunt. However, almost miraculously as it appeared, the monolith vanished on Friday after being ‘removed by an unknown party’, the Bureau of Land Management said in a statement last week. While local police are investigating the incident, photographer Ross Bernards took to...
