    President Joe Biden issued an executive order on his first day in office, mandating that any schools that receive federal funding must function as if biological males who claim to be females are the same, and vice versa, or risk losing that funding. This pro-transgender policy extends to male athletes who claim their gender identity as a female should allow them to compete on women’s teams, receive women’s scholarships, and be admitted in women’s locker rooms. “Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports,”...

    21 Jan 2021 The United Kingdom is resisting a demand from the European Union that it grant full diplomatic status to the bloc’s ambassador in London, causing a row between the recently divorced parties that spilled out into the open on Thursday. The UK, an EU member for 47 years, voted to quit in 2016 and completed its tortuous journey out of the bloc on December 31, when Brexit fully took effect. The BBC reported that the Foreign Office was refusing to grant the same diplomatic status and privileges to EU ambassador Joao Vale de Almeida and his team as...

    McConnell's speech prompted Nelson County GOP leaders to hold an emergency meeting, voting unanimously to issue a resolution censuring the senate majority leader for his comments. "This has shown his true colors," Nelson Co. GOP Chairman Don Thrasher said. "We felt today during his floor speech on the senate where he impugned the character of President Trump was unacceptable to us. His whole behavior overall through this whole process of the last week is not consistent with what he promised us when he was running for re-election." McConnell hasn't said how he will vote in the second impeachment trial of...

    Former President George W. Bush called Rep. Jim Clyburn (R-SC) a “savior” at the inauguration of Joe Biden on Wednesday. Biden won the Democrat nomination despite having significant cognitive impairments due in large part due to the endorsement of Clyburn, who had no problem giving his blessing for a total derelict to run the country. “I know Joe Biden. I know his character, his heart, and his record. Joe Biden has stood for the hard-working people of South Carolina. We know Joe. But more importantly, he knows us,” Clyburn wrote in a tweet prior to the crucial South Carolina primary....

    CIA Director Gina Haspel, who has had an increasingly strained relationship with President Trump during the final year of his administration, announced Tuesday that she is leaving the agency. Haspel did not articulate the reason for her departure, which comes on the last full day of Trump’s presidency, though Axios reported last week that she had threatened to resign in early December when Trump sought to install Kash Patel, a Trump loyalist and former aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) as her deputy. According to Axios, Trump “spent his last year in office ruminating over Haspel,” while many of his...

    Carbon County Wyoming unanimously voted in favor of censuring Liz Cheney for betraying her voters when she joined the Democrats’ baseless and fraudulent impeachment of President Trump, reported Bannon’s War Room. Joey Correnti IV, chairman of the Carbon County Wyoming Republican Party, joins War Room exclusively to discuss the resolution, which states Cheney has “violated the trust of her voters.” The resolution notes a majority of Wyoming Republicans recognize the evidence of “significant irregularities” in the presidential election, while no evidence exists of President Trump calling for violence.

    The "virtual" inauguration for Joe Biden on Wednesday will be anything but normal. Already, 25,000 National Guard troops have been dispatched to Washington, D.C., in response to the Jan. 6 riot. On Monday, an inauguration rehearsal was interrupted because of a fire in a nearby homeless camp. Now, a House Democrat from Tennessee, Rep. Steve Cohen, is expressing distrust of the Guard troops. "The Guard is 90-some-odd percent, I believe, male. Only about 20% of white males voted for Biden," Cohen told CNN. "You gotta figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative, and I see that on...

Parler now appears to be hosted by Epik, according to a WHOIS search. Epik is a hosting platform that supports Gab, 8chan and other services often used by members of the far-right.

    U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is planning to cancel the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, and perhaps as soon as his first day, according to a source familiar with his thinking. President Donald Trump, a Republican, had made building the pipeline a central promise of his presidential campaign. Biden, who will be inaugurated on Wednesday, was vice president in the Obama administration when it rejected the project as contrary to its efforts to combat climate change. The words "Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit" appear on a list of executive...
