    President Biden on Thursday received a warm welcome in England from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson — but dodged a handshake from Johnson to instead greet his new 33-year-old bride after telling the British leader he “married up” — amid a reported dust up over Northern Ireland policy. “Wait a minute! Wait a minute!” Biden said, waving off Johnson as he emerged from his motorcade. Biden, 78, walked past Johnson with a beaming smile on his face. “Good to see you! Best wishes!” Biden said, bumping wrists with Carrie Johnson, the Prime Minister’s 33- year-old bride. Turning to Johnson, Biden...

    BURBANK, CA—After the success of this year's Cruella movie, telling the sympathetic origin story of misunderstood puppy murderer Cruella de Vil, the Walt Disney Company announced today another movie helping us to feel sorry for another iconic villain: Kamala. To be released next summer, the movie will make the notorious villain and vice president appear in a more sympathetic light. Girls and women everywhere will be inspired by Harris's story, from being a little girl marching with Martin Luther King, Jr. and helping Harriet Tubman on the Underground Railroad, to locking up drug offenders and passing laws to help women...

    Breitbart ^ | 06/02/2021 | T.D. Adler
    Earlier this year, the Wikipedia page on GamerGate, the anti-corruption movement in gaming, saw extensive updates about the “legacy” of the movement and associated controversies. These edits pushed claims that GamerGate, which Wikipedia labels a “harassment campaign” due to a years-long effort by left-wing editors, helped Donald Trump become President in 2016 and that the movement even contributed to what the page called an “attempted coup” at the Capitol on January 6.
  • Biden makes bizarre start to Tulsa speech by running off stage to 'make sure' two girls got ice cream - before getting date of the Capitol riot wrong

    President Joe Biden delayed the start of his speech marking the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre on Tuesday by asking two girls in the audience if they were getting ice cream. The commander-in-chief noticed the two youngsters off the side of the speech and ran over before beginning his remarks. 'I just had to make sure the two girls got ice cream when this is over. Almost five years old coming to hear the president speak. My lord. In my faith we call that purgatory,' he said before heading back to the podium.

    Tulsa (AFP) - In Tulsa, the city that still bears the scars of a 1921 racial massacre, African-American residents are eagerly awaiting the arrival of President Joe Biden on Tuesday, hoping he will hear their call for financial reparations. "I just want him to feel our pain," said local activist Kristi Williams. The Democratic leader, who has benefited from a strong support base among Black voters, will attend Tuesday's commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre, one of the worst episodes of racial violence in US history. Williams, who is descended from some of the massacre victims,...

    Republican lawmakers across the country are moving to restrict teaching about systemic racism in our education system, targeting critical race theory. But in the course of doing so, some are attempting to rewrite a very pertinent part of that history.Twice in recent weeks, Republican state lawmakers have defended the infamous “Three-Fifths Compromise” — the constitutional agreement by which enslaved people would count as three-fifths of a person for representation purposes — by arguing that it was actually somehow anti-slavery.

    The fanatical Donald Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol in January are facing an unexpected obstacle to their freedom: Trump himself. Trump’s refusal to accept the reality that he lost the 2020 election — reflected in a torrent of recent statements renewing discredited claims about a “rigged” vote — has become a feature of prosecutors’ latest attempts to jail Capitol riot defendants they deem too dangerous to release pending trial. Judges have started citing this argument — as part of broader analysis — in cases where they've decided to detain defendants for presenting a threat of future violence, and even...
  • Why Grape Ice Cream Will Never Be a Thing

    04/22/2021 6:49:09 AM PDT · by mylife · 51 replies
    Though there are many products where grape flavor can be welcome, such as juices, sodas, popsicles, and (of course) the actual fruit, the one place you’ll rarely find a grape is in your ice cream. Many conspiracy theories have been floating around as to why the lowly grape has yet to make its way to the creamery, but you might find that the real reason is the simplest of all. Let’s review. The main idea running rampant around the Internet blames the absence of grape ice cream on the Food and Drug Administration, which banned the flavor because of pet-related...

Britannia was the Latin name given to the UK by the Romans after their invasion in 43 CE. The weapon-clad warrior woman became a personification of the British Isles and has fronted the country's currency since 1672.

    March 30 (UPI) -- The New York City Police Department said it is investigating two incidents of assault that targeted an Asian woman, who was stomped in the head, and an Asian man, who was punched and choked on the New York City subway. Both incidents are believed to have occurred on Monday. The unidentified 65-year-old woman was allegedly walking to church on Monday, when at about 11:40 a.m. a man approached her and kicked her in the stomach, the New York Daily News reported. Surveillance video from the building on West 43rd Street in midtown Manhattan also showed the...

    That uninviting outer fencing around the U.S. Capitol will reportedly come down in the coming days after it’s made a mockery of the principles this country was founded upon for more than two months. Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy Blodgett issued a memo on Friday announcing that the Capitol architect and the U.S. Capitol Police together “will remove the outer perimeter fencing around the Capitol complex sooner than initially anticipated.” CNN reported that the move could come as early as this weekend, said Blodgett. The man told lawmakers that “there does not exist a known, credible threat against Congress or the...

    Team Biden has a persistent lying problem when it comes to the Trump administration's supposedly terrible record with the coronavirus vaccine. You could see it again in a March 11 prime-time NBC News coronavirus special, "Covid One Year Later: Life After Lockdown." On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, anchorman Lester Holt suggested to White House chief of staff Ron Klain that President Biden's team now "owns" the pandemic response and asked "what's taking so long" with the vaccines. Klain automatically blamed former President Trump, saying: "(W)e inherited a vaccine system that was moving at a snail's pace and we've...
