  • Woman sues sister-in-law for calling her 'rotten' and 'cheap' at father-in-law's wake

    A widow, who took over a family-owned car dealership from her late husband, told the High Court on Tuesday (Jan 19) that one of his sisters called her a "rotten" and "cheap" woman after throwing a bunch of bananas at her during her father-in-law's funeral wake. Ms Lim Siew Ling, 48, said the Mandarin words used by her sister-in-law Neo Choon Sian were "insulting", as it meant that she was an immoral woman with many sex partners. However, Ms Neo's lawyer contended that what his client had said was "rotten bananas". Ms Lim also alleged that Ms Neo told mourners...

    … “I’m thinking about all those folks who, just for a moment, the nation shared their grief,” Glaude told MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace. “Oh, what a first step. What a beautiful step.” “I’m reminded of the Psalmist, you know, ‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds,’” Glaude added. […] “You know, we’re at a crossroads as a nation,” Glaude said. “It’s easy for us to place all of the blame on Donald Trump. He makes it easy for us, you know? He does. But there were 75, 74-plus million people who voted for him. Selfishness, greed, you know,...
  • Capitol attack stirs memories of Oklahoma bombing [emesis alert]

    The attack on the U.S. Capitol by an angry mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters shocked many Americans who thought such a violent assault by their fellow countrymen wasn’t possible. But for Oklahoma City bombing survivor Dennis Purifoy, the Capitol assault was a clear parallel to what happened at the federal building in his hometown more than 25 years ago. The anger against the government, a radicalized perpetrator fueled by right-wing extremism, a desire to spark a revolution — all commonalities with Timothy McVeigh, whose fertilizer truck bomb ripped apart the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995,...

    In one of his final acts as majority leader, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is pressuring Democrats to keep the filibuster — the procedural tool that liberals and progressives are eager to to do away with so President-elect Joe Biden’s legislative priorities can be approved more easily over GOP opposition. McConnell has told Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer that retaining the legislative filibuster is important and should be part of their negotiations for a power-sharing agreement in the narrowly divided Senate. Schumer and McConnell met Tuesday to begin hammering out the details of organizing the chamber, which will be split...

    … (Ashli Babbitt’s) death was part of the grim toll of a riot that left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer, vandalized the seat of American democracy and left the nation shaken. But the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol with Babbitt—climbing on scaffolding, smashing windows, looting offices and posing for selfies as they romped through the building for nearly three hours—were far from chastened by the deadly cost. On pro-Trump forums and messaging apps, there was jubilation: “The 6th was a day to be proud of!” read one post on a pro-Trump board. “The most patriotic thing I...

    Details of the saga were made public when the wedding party host detailed how the gift had outraged the bride and her family in a video on social media. A newlywed woman in China has walked out on her husband and demanded a divorce – all because of a row over lingerie. The furious bride pulled the pin on their wedding celebration at the eleventh hour and declared she was filing for divorce after being insulted by her husband’s wedding gift of a bra … that was two sizes too small. The couple had already been legally married but were...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said at her press conference on Thursday that she prays for President Donald Trump “every day” and tells herself that “you gotta keep praying for him.” Earlier in the same press briefing, Pelosi had indicated she would like Vice President Mike Pence to move to remove President Trump by invoking the 25th Amendment before he leaves on January 20 when the inauguration will take place—or, failing that, have the House vote to impeach Trump for a second time. […] “Last night was the hardest day for me,” she said. “Night, like five o’clock in the...

    Vice President Mike Pence is expected to attend Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration later this month after overseeing Wednesday’s chaotic certification of the president-elect’s Electoral College win. Three sources close to Pence said he would likely make an appearance at the Jan. 20 event in a show of support for the peaceful transition of power. The decision to attend, they said, became easier after President Donald Trump publicly criticized Pence leading up to, and following, his refusal to stop the certification.

Bush and his wife Laura will attend the inauguration in person. Their spokesman, Freddy Ford, said, “President and Mrs. Bush look forward to returning to the Capitol for the swearing in of President Biden and Vice President Harris.” The announcement from Bush, a Republican, came a day before Congress was scheduled...

    In his latest report on federal government waste, a project he completes every year, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) highlights $54.7 billion in government spending that he deems wasteful. Among the items noted this year is the creation of a $6.9 million “smart toilet,” which operates with three cameras, one of which can identify a user’s “analprint.” As explained in The Festivus Report 2020, researchers at Stanford University used $6,973,057 in funds granted through the National Cancer Institute, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to create a so-called “smart toilet.” The purpose of the toilet is to...

    Walking around without a mask is enough to attract stares nowadays. But Bedok residents got more than an eyeful to look at after a woman took a stroll around the neighbourhood in nothing but her birthday suit and an orange handbag. The 42-year-old woman was arrested on Monday morning (Dec 29) after walking from Bedok North Avenue 2 to Heartbeat@Bedok in the nude, police confirmed. Officers arrested the woman under the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act after receiving a call for assistance at 7.52am that day. The woman, who remains unidentified, was also not wearing a face mask. In...
