    Vice President Harris will attend the funeral on Wednesday of Tyre Nichols, who died after being beaten by Memphis, Tenn., police during a traffic stop. Harris will travel to Memphis for the services and was invited by Nichols’s family, the vice president’s office told The Hill. She will be joined by other Biden administration officials, including Keisha Lance Bottoms, director for the Office of Public Engagement, and senior adviser to the president Mitch Landrieu.

    As we reported, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died on Dec. 31.Normally, for the death of such a world leader, you would have the President in attendance at the funeral. So reporters asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre if Joe Biden would be going. The answer was more than a little embarrassing for the White House.Joe Biden will not attend Pope Benedict XVI’s funeral, per request of the Vatican.— Kevin McMahon (@Kevin__McMahon) January 3, 2023Jean-Pierre mispronounced “Emeritus,” making it sound like an infection. Someone has to help her with how to pronounce what it is she’s trying to say,...

    Williams was convicted of six murders, including one triple murder in 1989, but freed after almost 30 years in prison when his final murder charge was tossed because evidence of prosecutorial misconduct came to light. Williams was part of a funeral procession for formerly incarcerated friend Tyree Little in Philadelphia, his friends told the Philadelphia Inquirer. As he stepped out of his car on the 3000 block of Lehigh Avenue at around 2.20pm, he was shot once in the head. [snip]

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Hearses bearing the dead lined the driveway to a designated COVID-19 crematorium in the Chinese capital on Saturday while workers at the city's dozen funeral homes were busier than normal, days after China reversed tight pandemic restrictions. In recent days in Beijing the spread of the highly transmissible Omicron variant has hit services from catering to parcel deliveries. Funeral homes and crematoriums across the city of 22 million are also struggling to keep up with demand as more workers and drivers testing positive for coronavirus call in sick.

    A woman has gone viral after sharing a video that seemingly shows them trashing their own father at his funeral, branding him a “racist, misogynistic, xenophobic” Donald Trump supporter. -snip “Dad, please know that I am grateful, and highly aware of what you have done for this family, [but] I still don’t miss you,” they declared. “When you died, I felt like there was a hole. I missed something, but it wasn’t you. It was the idea of what you could [have] become. I missed being able to hope and wish that one day you’d turn a corner and see...

    Ana Navarro told her co-hosts Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the Saturday wedding of former President Donald Trump’s youngest daughter Tiffany Trump was a “MAGA funeral.” Co-host Sara Haines said, “Over the weekend, Donald Trump’s daughter Tiffany got married at Mar-a-Lago, and Ivanka posted a photo on Instagram where she cropped out Don Jr.’s fiancee Kimberly Guilfoyle of course. The internet went wild with speculation over this, and she reposted the photo in her stories and put her back in the frame a few hours later.” Haines asked, “Alyssa, you know both of them. Is there some scandal here?”...

    How bad is the rise in mortality? So bad funeral companies are starting to worry. Today Service Corporation International, the largest for-profit funeral operator in North America, had its quarterly earnings call. SCI had another great quarter, you’ll be pleased to hear! So far in 2022 the company has made almost $500 million in profits - and its stock rose more than 10 percent today after its earnings report. (Death is your best investment!) ... the third quarter of this year, we did 15% more calls than we did in the third quarter of 2019. That is not what anybody...

    Pittsburgh police said six people were shot outside a funeral in the city's Brighton Heights neighborhood Friday. All six victims were reported to be in stable condition, police said. The shooting happened just after noon outside a funeral service for John James Hornezes, Jr., one of the three killed in a shooting on Pittsburgh's North Side on Oct. 15. That service was being held at the Destiny of Faith Church on Brighton Street. A source says someone was driving by the church in a vehicle and fired shots. Police were not able to confirm that's where the shots came from...

    The historic New Jersey funeral home where mobsters wound up after getting whacked in “The Sopranos” is facing a hit job itself. The Irvine-Cozzarelli Memorial Home in Belleville — which was discussed and featured in numerous episodes of the HBO Mafia drama — could be demolished as part of a redevelopment plan recently approved by township officials, reported. It’s a controversial move, as the building on Washington Avenue where the storied business is located dates back to 1885 — and the local historical society doesn’t want to see it fitted for cement overshoes. “The place has incredible potential,” Michael...

    President Biden may be the world’s most powerful man, but it didn’t ensure him a front-row seat at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in London on Monday. The president and first lady Jill Biden were seated 14 rows back during the service at Westminster Abbey that drew 2,000 guests — including some 500 of the world’s presidents, kings, princes and prime ministers. Perhaps taken into consideration was that the couple was among the few dignitaries who were granted permission to travel in their own presidential limousine, nicknamed “The Beast,” for security reasons. Most other leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,...

    President Joe Biden will travel to the Queen’s funeral in his own private car, despite his supposed climate concerns, while the Japanese Emperor and other world leaders take a bus. Japan’s Emperor Naruhito, representing the world’s most venerable monarchy, will take a bus to the Queen’s funeral along with a host of other world leaders — but green agenda advocate Joe Biden is too grand for this, and will make his way there in his own gas-guzzling armoured car.

    Foreign bigwigs looking to attend the Queen’s funeral have been asked to leave their private jets at home by the UK government. Those dignitaries looking to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II have been reportedly asked by the UK government not to come to the event in a private jet, and that they will also be required to leave their personal cars and helicopters at home for the state occasion. While justified with reference to logistical concerns, the request may also avoid negative headlines about the environmental impact of traffic jams in the skies of private planes on one...

    Foreign leaders and their spouses attending Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in London on September 19 have been advised to fly to the UK on commercial flights and are banned from using helicopters, according to documents obtained by Politico. The documents from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office were sent from the UK to embassies, the outlet reported. The FCDO anticipates the funeral service will be at capacity, so no more than one representative per country and their spouse will be invited to attend. The department said it "regrets that, because of limited space at the state funeral service and associated...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin will not attend the funeral of Mikhail Gorbachev on Saturday, citing scheduling conflicts, but he paid tribute to the last Soviet leader Thursday, the Kremlin said. In a call with reporters, Russian government spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the president paid his final respects by laying a wreath at Moscow’s Central Clinical Hospital, where Gorbachev died on Tuesday at age 91. “Unfortunately, the president’s work schedule will not allow him to do this on Sept. 3, so he decided to do it today,” Peskov said. Russian state television showed Putin walking to Gorbachev’s open coffin and placing...

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton on Wednesday injected partisan politics to the funeral of diplomat Madeleine Albright, the nation’s first female secretary of state, saying “fascism” could dominate the United States if “dictators and demagogues” aren’t stopped — taking a clear swipe at former President Donald Trump and his allies. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, lost to Trump in a shocking upset and her attacks generally are welcomed by Republicans who describe her as an embittered and base-rallying foe.
