    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Monday reacted to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) voicing his concern with the January 6 select committee requesting his phone records as part of a bipartisan investigation into the riot at the U.S. Capitol. After airing the clip of McCarthy’s Fox News Channel interview from over the weekend, Scarborough said it is “a really good thing you can’t get arrested in Washington, D.C. for stupidity” because he and others “would be dragged to the jailhouse.”

    The Tulsa Police Department posted about one of their "most wanted" suspects, looking for information – then the suspect commented on the Facebook post herself, ultimately leading to her arrest. On Wednesday, the police department posted about Lorraine Graves, who is charged with being an accessory to murder. The department was looking for information on Graves, who was suspected to be involved in the murder of Eric Graves. However, the department was still looking for Lorraine Graves – and she ended up showing herself to them when she commented on the post. "Where's the reward money at?" Graves wrote. The...

'As I had mentioned to Bill yesterday evening, I am enthusiastic about moving towards a collaborative and hopefully synergistic approach to COVID-19,' Fauci told Emilio Emini, the director of the Gates Foundation's tuberculosis and HIV program.

    Last week, Apple announced its new AirTags — $29 location-tracking fobs that can help find your keys or purse anywhere in the world. The devices, which are roughly the diameter of a quarter, have since been tested and lauded by tech journalists, including our own.But technology often comes with unintended consequences, explain representatives from the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV), a leading nonprofit with the goal of ending violence against women. NNEDV sits on advisory boards for Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Uber and has consulted for both Google and Apple in the past (but not on AirTags). The...

    Traveled through the Navajo 'Nation' today. They're still on complete lockdown. Can't even eat without masks , hand goo. I said I'm not forcing my son to wear a mask. And I definitely want going for the filthy hand for that's advertised as cleaner. I said the rest of the state is open. All I got was 'Navajo nation!'. As a reminder, these folks vote 90% democrat and have done so since they got on the res and started taking welfare. They want those rules? Ok, I said no and walked out. It's been over a year.

  • Racial bias found in common life-saving medical device

    (WBMA) – A study found racial bias in a common lifesaving medical detection device, according to the FDA. The device is called a pulse oximeter and it's used to make important medical decisions for patients, especially in the pandemic. It is an electronic device that measures the saturation of oxygen carried in your red blood cells. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows the use of that type of device failed at getting a proper blood oxygen reading in more Black patients than white patients. According to the FDA, it’s likely the device is less accurate...

    Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) tweeted on Saturday that he voted to convict former President Donald Trump in the Senate impeachment trial “because he is guilty.” “Our Constitution and our country is more important than any one person.

    Whole Earth Review ^ | 1987 | Cipolla C.,
    Cipolla gave a work of beautiful clarity in his essay on the phenomenon of stupidity and its effects on human survival. These are Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity: 1. Always and inevitably everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation. 2. The probability that a certain person (will) be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person. 3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses. 4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid...

    Critical race theorist Ibram X. Kendi declared this week that the expression “legal vote” used to describe votes cast in conformity with U.S. laws is “functionally racist.” “The term ‘legal vote’ is as fictionally fraught and functionally racist as the terms ‘illegal alien’ and ‘race neutral’ and ‘welfare queen’ and ‘handouts’ and ‘super predator’ and ‘crackbaby’ and ‘personal responsibility’ and ‘post racial,’” Kendi wrote on Twitter. When Kendi added in a follow-up tweet, “There are so many more terms like this. What did I leave out?” his woke followers jumped on the bandwagon, insisting that any terms questioning the Left’s...

    by Joe Callen Slow Joe Biden has been struggling to connect with younger voters -- a crucial demographic he needs to try and beat Trump. Biden cannot seem to generate anywhere near the level of enthusiasm among Gen-Z and Millennial voters as did Bernie Sanders. CNN reported that one of the reasons Joe chose ultra-left wing VP mate Kamala Harris was to "energize" young people -- which is bizarre g9iven how Harris went on a rampage imprisoning young people for minor weed offenses as California Attorney General. But a new video unearthed by conservative Jason Howerton will absolutely crush...

    Former ESPN host and current Atlantic writer Jemele Hill, said that those who believe the United States isn’t “nearly as bad as Nazi Germany,” are mistaken. The outspoken Trump-critic and liberal activist made the comments in a Twitter post on Sunday, after reading a book called Caste, by Isabel Wilkerson. In the book, Wilkerson likens the Jim Crow system in the South to a caste system. Claiming that, “every aspect of life was so tightly controlled and scripted and restricted that race was an insufficient term to capture the depth and organized repression that people were living under.” According to...

    The NFL team formerly known as the Redskins will go by the Washington Football Team for at least the 2020 season, giving the organisation time to choose a new, full-time name. Gone is the Indian head logo and the name Native American advocates have called a dictionary-defined racial slur. Here to stay are the burgundy and gold colours that are synonymous with the franchise's storied history. Executive vice-president and chief marketing officer Terry Bateman, who was hired on Monday to oversee the name change and rebranding process, called the temporary design "a nice link between the history and the future"....
