Cell phone users in Missouri received an emergency blue alert notification that read "Emergency Alert - Gotham City Mo. Purple/Green 1978 Dodge 3700GB MO UKIDME.

Arizona Republican State Representative Jake Hoffman made news this week when it was revealed he signed a forged "certification" falsely stating Donald Trump, not Joe Biden, won his state's Electoral College electors. Video that's gone viral of Hoffman shows him defending signing the forged documents in which he falsely identifies himself as a duly elected elector for Trump. His defense: "in unprecedented times, unprecedented action does occur."

He called the forged electoral documents "dueling opinions" in this video: Read more


In this sleepy Wyoming town that has relied on coal for over a century, a company founded by the man who revolutionized personal computing is launching an ambitious project to counter climate change: A nationwide reboot of nuclear energy technology. Until recently, Kemmerer was little-known for anything except J.C. Penney's first store and some 55-million-year-old fish fossils in quarries down the road. Then in November, a company started by Bill Gates, TerraPower, announced it had chosen Kemmerer for a nontraditional, sodium-cooled nuclear reactor that will bring on workers from a local coal-fired power plant scheduled to close soon.

As of this week, about 1,800 Americans a day are dying of Covid; the C.D.C. expects that number to rise above 2,600. Virtually all are adults. If 95 percent were unvaccinated and we assume that 75 percent of those were Trump supporters, that's 1,300 to 1,900 of his voters being subtracted from the rolls every single day. Donald Trump lost Arizona by a mere 10,000 votes. He lost Georgia by 12,000, He lost Wisconsin by 21,000. He lost Nevada by 33,000. Right now, about 60 Arizonans, 36 Georgians, 34 Wisconsinites and 14 Nevadans are dying of Covid each day. Seventy five percent of 95 percent of that would be minus 103 Trump voters per day " just in those four swing states. Week after week. That adds up.


Donald Trump is running down Florida governor Ron DeSantis, describing him in private as having a "dull personality" and unable to beat him in a 2024 match, sources tell Axios. The site reports Trump is furious with DeSantis because of his unwillingness, so far, to rule out running against Trump in two years. Axios also states that Trump is irritated by DeSantis' growing popularity and lack of gratitude. "In the context of the 2024 election, he usually gives DeSantis a pop in the nose in the middle of that type of conversation," a source said, adding, "He says DeSantis has no personal charisma and has a dull personality." Axios also quotes The New York Times' Maggie Haberman, who reported recently: "Trump has been telling a range of aides a version of, he isn't getting the deference from DeSantis that he wants in the pre-2024 leadup.

Former President Donald Trump on Saturday claimed that white people are being discriminated against and sent to the "back of the line" when it comes to receiving COVID-19 vaccines and treatment. Speaking during a rally in Florence, Arizona, Trump alleged that coronavirus vaccines and treatments are being unfairly "rationed" and withheld from white Americans in some states. "The left is now rationing life-saving therapeutics based on race, discriminating against and denigrating, just denigrating white people to determine who lives and who dies," Trump said during his speech. "You get it based on race. In fact, in New York state, if you're white, you have to go to the back of the line to get medical help. If you're white, you go right to the back of the line."

On average, Americans' political party preferences in 2021 looked similar to prior years, with slightly more U.S. adults identifying as Democrats or leaning Democratic (46%) than identified as Republicans or leaned Republican (43%). However, the general stability for the full-year average obscures a dramatic shift over the course of 2021, from a nine-percentage-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter to a rare five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter. These results are based on aggregated data from all U.S. Gallup telephone surveys in 2021, which included interviews with more than 12,000 randomly sampled U.S. adults. Gallup asks all Americans it interviews whether they identify politically as a Republican, a Democrat or an independent. Independents are then asked whether they lean more toward the Republican or Democratic Party. The combined percentage of party identifiers and leaners gives a measure of the relative strength of the two parties politically. Read more

Now that Devin Nunes has slunk off to the Trump-a-verse, is there anyone in Washington who is as transparently cynical, cowardly and dishonest as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the Republican shape-shifter from Central California? Here is a man who blamed then-President Trump for inciting the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection ... before changing his mind. A man who was for a bipartisan investigation of the horrible events of that day ... before he was against it. A man who said he was willing to testify before an investigative committee about his conversations with Trump on that terrible day ... before he decided not to.
