    Yoel Roth, Elon Musk’s former right-hand man who was instrumental to the new era of Twitter, has reportedly been forced to flee his home, likely in the Bay Area, after getting harassed by Musk and his supporters. Roth, the now-departed head of trust and safety, received increased threats after Musk promoted a baseless accusation that his former employee endorsed children accessing “adult Internet services,” CNN first reported Monday afternoon. "Looks like Yoel is arguing in favor of children being able to access adult Internet services in his PhD thesis," Musk wrote in a tweet Saturday, with a screenshot to what...

    by Becca London | RNNElon Musk triggered a whole lot of folks on the left Sunday when he dared to tweet against their beloved Anthony Fauci – while also making fun of the ridiculous “pronouns” fad: We already covered how the Krispy Kreme Colonel Alexander Vindman lost his donuts over it. Well now Scott Kelly - liberal astronaut and identical twin brother of Democrat Senator Mark Kelly (AZ) has shown his displeasure as well, sending this tweet Musk's way, both defending Lord Fauci and basically accusing Elon of being a bigot as well: After all, people who have "preferred pronouns"...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin waited only six months before switching from a special military operation to full scale war against Ukraine. Putin's initial assault was limited to barely 150,000 troops. He expected a quick victory followed by negotiations on his principal concerns: Russian control of Crimea, Ukrainian neutrality, and autonomy for the Russian population in the Donbas, but he was wrong. Putin had not counted on Ukraine's stiff resistance or the West's massive military and economic intervention. Faced with a new situation, Putin changed his strategy. Now he is about to unleash his own General Sherman and make Ukraine howl....

    For almost 50,000 years, viruses have been waiting, frozen in layers of permafrost that have thawed with the warming of Earth. A recent study of a section of Siberian permafrost by scientists from the French National Centre for Scientific Research found 13 viruses that have survived 48,500 years, according to Canada’s Global News. That’s older than the previous oldest virus found, which was 30,000 years old. One of the new finds has been dubbed a “zombie virus” by the New York Post. “One quarter of the Northern hemisphere is underlain by permanently frozen ground, referred to as permafrost. Due to...

    MSNBC host Jonathan Lemire said Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that white nationalism was becoming “more central to what today’s Republican Party is about” while discussing former President Donald Trump meeting with Nick Fuentes and rapper Kanye West at his Mar-a-Lago estate. Co-host Mika Brzezinski said, “Not just any dinner, dinner at Mar-a-Lago, which former President Trump calls his Florida White House, his southern White House. This is the place where classified documents were seized by the FBI that the president had taken, stolen from areas where these documents are kept in our government, office buildings, and in the White...
  • Full of Hot Air: Paul Krugman Cries GOP Will ‘Undermine’ Biden’s ‘Successful Governance’

    New York Times economics columnist Paul Krugman has a knack for propping up President Joe Biden's atrocious economy at the expense of making himself look foolish. Krugman belched up another word salad worth 846 words with a blaring headline: “How Democrats Can Fight This G.O.P.” After haranguing Republicans for supposedly not having “policy ideas,” Krugman bleated that a GOP-controlled House of Representatives with a narrow majority will be more “destructive” in part because the “economic environment, which was a headwind for Democrats this year, will probably (although obviously not certainly) begin to look better heading into 2024.” Inflation, praised Krugman,...
  • Climate Change Denial Makes an Untimely Comeback

    The science about the climate crisis is unequivocal, but a recent report shows a rise in misinformation about the topic. When researchers set out to study the effects of disinformation on global populations, they discovered something surprising: a huge resurgence in climate denial in 2022. In the past year, climate science has been clearer than ever. Three recent reports from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have warned that we must make urgent changes. If not, we are on a "highway to hell," as UN Secretary General António Guterres said last week. At the same time, there has has...

    SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (AP) — The war-inspired natural gas boom is undermining already insufficient efforts to limit future warming to just a few more tenths of a degree, a new report says. Planning and build-up of liquified and other natural gas — due to an energy crisis triggered by Russian’s invasion of Ukraine — would add 2 billion tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (1.9 billion metric tons) a year to the air by 2030. The sheer amount of liquified natural gas projects in the pipeline for construction shocked the analysts, Hare said. The report calculates that if everything planned goes...

    Yesterday’s Midterms were not a victory for conservative or progressive ideology, but an assertion of the growing power of geography in American politics. It was less a national election than a clash of civilisations. Virtually nowhere in blue areas did Republicans make gains. Both the north-east and California – the central players in Democratic Party politics – stayed solidly blue. Even the most well-regarded GOP candidates, such as Lanhee Chen who ran for California state controller, struggled to make inroads in Democratic territory. Meanwhile, the senators and governors of the leading red states – Texas’s Greg Abbott, Georgia’s Brian Kemp,...

  • G.O.P. Seeks to Erase Democratic Supermajority in New York Legislature

    For four years, a cycle of victories by progressive-minded Democrats has pushed the New York State Legislature to the left, carrying their party to legislative supermajorities and creating an unfettered path for liberal priorities to be enacted around housing, climate change and abortion rights. But this year, a national Republican wave is threatening to curb those progressive gains and vanquish the Democrats’ veto-proof supermajority, as Republicans seek to expand their diminished foothold in the State Capitol. While the Assembly is solidly in Democratic control, Republicans seem well positioned to make inroads in the State Senate, where competitive races are playing...

    The White House responded to the Tuesday afternoon shooting of two Newark, New Jersey, police officers by pushing gun control measures that already exist in New Jersey. Breitbart News reported that a suspect shot the two officers as they attempted to serve a warrant around 2 p.m. Both officers were transported to a hospital in stable condition, according to CNN. FOX News noted that the White House released a statement Tuesday night in which White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre described Americans as being “scarred by the devastating impacts” of gun violence in the United States. Jean-Pierre pointed to the...

    Joe Scarborough told his co-hosts Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the “sickness” in the so-called extreme MAGA base was a version of fascism. Scarborough blamed former President Donald Trump for this rise of “fascism” by “praising violence.” Scarborough said, “It’s only gotten worse for these Republicans that, again, can’t just come out and say this is really bad. We have a problem with violence, fascism, growing sort of fascism on our side that started with Donald Trump. They can’t just say that. Instead, saying, don’t say the word fascism. Don’t say that word. Talk about something else. What would...

    Prosecutors of Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz called for an investigation Friday after a juror said another panelist threatened her during the deliberations that ended with a life sentence for Cruz's murder of 17 people four years ago at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Prosecutor Carolyn McCann told Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer during a brief hearing that prosecutors are not trying to invalidate Thursday's jury vote and reported the threat only for safety reasons and so the Broward County Sheriff's Office can investigate. In their written motion asking for the hearing, prosecutors said the juror told them another juror...

In Berlin, two women wearing orange vests stuck themselves to metal poles supporting a dinosaur skeleton that was over 60 million years old, holding a banner that read: 'What if the government doesn't have it under control?' They did not touch or do any damage to the skeleton itself.

In fact, Ukraine expects “even more robust” weapons packages if Republicans are in charge, said Daniel Vajdich, a lobbyist for the Ukrainian government.

    Police saw Carmon Tussey walking briskly toward a crowded Louisville bar carrying a semi-automatic weapon. With people running away, officers moved in, service weapons drawn. They put the 26-year-old in handcuffs and confiscated his gun. Tussey was later charged with terroristic threatening, wanton endangerment and disorderly conduct, prosecutors said, and could face up to 20 years in prison. His lawyer says he “was engaged in perfectly legal behavior” in the incident last year, raising a relatively new legal argument in the United States that now stands before the courts to settle. That’s because Kentucky made it legal in 2019 to...
