    A U.S. congresswoman from Arizona has signed onto a letter with her House of Representatives colleagues demanding information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding the organization’s data collection during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I joined [Rep. Kelly Armstong (R-ND)]’s letter to CDC Director Walensky to demand answers about the CDC’s legal authority to obtain Americans’ location data. This violates the rights of Americans!” Representative Debbie Lesko (R-AZ-08) said.  I joined @RepArmstrongNDs letter to CDC Director Walensky to demand answers about the CDC’s legal authority to obtain Americans’ location data.

    A MCDONALD'S boss has been mocked for a ridiculously petty 'McRule' demanding staff only drink from certain cups. An image of the warning posted in a staff greenroom was shared on Reddit. 1The 'McRule' required employees not to drink from 16 oz cups The ridiculous rule claimed that employees take a 12 oz cup while drinking at work and to then throw it away for health reasons. "It should not look like a teenager's room around here with 32 half empty cups - not only is it unsightly, they get spilled, and attract unwanted pests," the blunt warning read. The boss, known as Chris, said this was also a "money issue". "A 12 oz paper cup costs 3 cents, and 16 oz clear cup costs 8 cents," the rule read.

    EXCLUSIVE — Led by Sens. Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), 20 GOP senators signed a letter addressed to Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Robert Califf, questioning the administration's lengthy investigation of Abbott Nutrition and demanding answers as to why proactive measures weren't taken to ease the baby formula crisis. In the letter exclusively obtained by the Washington Examiner, the group explains that "families are getting to the brink of pursuing unsafe and potentially dangerous options to feed their infants including homemade infant formula. And physicians are, once again, running defense on misinformation due to a lack of federal action to get the word out on safe alternatives." Notably, Marshall is an obstetrics and gynecology specialist and practiced medicine before becoming a senator. 'I'M QUITTING': ANONYMOUS TRUMP DEFECTOR DITCHES GOP, CITING BUFFALO SHOOTING "Abbott Nutrition’s voluntary recall exacerbated the shortage, and yet no policies were taken to mitigate the sharp increases to the current out-of-stock 43 percent the Administration is now scrambling to address," the senators wrote, adding that it's "concerning that FDA...

    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer wrote to Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives on Tuesday, demanding they denounce conspiracy theories like the 'Great Replacement Theory' and end any spread of white supremacist ideology on their network. 'I urge you to take into consideration the very real impacts of the dangerous rhetoric being broadcast on your network on a nightly basis,' Schumer wrote in the letter, where he called out Fox News' Tucker Carlson by name. 'For years, these types of beliefs have existed at the fringes of American life,' Schumer noted. 'However, this pernicious theory, which has no basis in fact, has been injected into the mainstream thanks in large part to a dangerous level of amplification by your network and its anchors.'  'I implore you to immediately cease all dissemination of false white nationalist, far-right conspiracy theories on your network,' he wrote.  Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer demanded Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives denounce conspiracy theories like the 'Great Replacement Theory' Schumer sent his letter to Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives Payton Gendron,...
    A group of anti-abortion demonstrators protesting in Washington, DC over the weekend were brilliantly heckled by a trio of comedians led by Walter Masterson. Masterson, Maximillian Clark, and the Jolly Good Ginger had approached two cisgendered white males who were earnestly questioning when they would be granted their constitutional rights. "Oh my God! Yes! I want to get a picture!" Masterson exclaimed upon finding his unbeknownst subjects, who unsuspectingly engaged. "Oh my God, these are like, I love them. They're like the best fascists you'll ever see," he said. One of the men, donning a red USA cap, asked Masterson, "when does life begin?" Masterson was fully armed with a response. "Life begins at ejaculation!" he proclaimed. "No! Life begins at erection!" Clark interjected, which Masterson began blasting into his megaphone. "When do we get rights?" the hat-wearing, budding misogynist asked, although he was drowned out by Clark's next argument. "Life begins when you first find a letter from your true love in the sixth grade and you think, maybe, maybe she is the one, and you...
    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Bus drivers in Tehran on Monday went on strike on two major bus lines to demand a 10% wage increase, causing hours of delays in public transportation in the Iranian capital, media reported. The semiofficial Mehr news agency said Mayor Ali Reza Zakani appeared with the drivers and promised to address their problems. The Sharq daily said the strike on two major north-south routes led to the disruption of traffic in many bus stations in the city. Witnesses said many of the bus passengers resorted to the subway, leading to overcrowding at some stations. Tehran has dozens of major bus lines. A video circulating on social media showed striking drivers shouting demands for the mayor’s resignation and calling for a 10% raise in wages. The semiofficial ISNA news agency said police sent hundreds of its buses and drivers to transfer people free of charge. Security was tight in major junctions in Tehran starting Monday morning. Last week, authorities detained a member of the drivers syndicate. In recent months teachers have waged protest rallies demanding...
    Joe Biden gave an impassioned plea Sunday during a memorial for fallen law enforcement by asking Americans to 'address the hate that remains a stain on the soul of America' after a racially motivated gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo. 'A lone gunman, armed with weapons of war and a hate-filled soul shot and killed 10 innocent people in cold blood in a grocery store Saturday afternoon,' Biden said during the 41st Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service outside the Capitol on Sunday. The president said that while the Justice Department investigates the crime in Buffalo 'we must all work together to address the hate that remains a stain on the soul of America.' The president and first lady Jill Biden attended the event kicking off Police Week Sunday afternoon outside the Capitol honoring the lives of law enforcement who were killed in the line of duty in the last year. 'Being a cop today is a heck of a lot harder than it's ever been,' Biden said during his remarks for the event hosted by the National...
    DEAR HARRIETTE: I went years without speaking to someone who told a cruel lie about me. Harriette Cole  That lie affected my friendships and even my family. It was so bad and so hurtful that part of me never recovered. It was hard to believe that someone I cared a lot about would intentionally lie about me to a host of other people. They recently reached out to me to apologize privately for the lie that they told. The disrespect was public, so I think the apology should be public, too. In order for me to move forward, I want a detailed public retraction of the lie. Is this a reasonable request? Public Apology DEAR PUBLIC APOLOGY: Start by meeting with this person and listening to what they have to say.

    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” author and Nonresident Senior Fellow for Technology and National Security at the Atlantic Council’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security Jamie Metzl said that the U.S. isn’t demanding an investigation into the origins of COVID because “we are so completely dependent on our trade with China.” And that if we correctly extend the logic that we’ve used to criticize Europe for its continued purchase of Russian energy, “we are funding the genocide in Xinjiang, mass human rights abuses in Tibet, behaviors in the South China Sea, and the blocking of an investigation into COVID by our continued trade with China.” Metzl stated, [relevant remarks begin around 4:50] “So, the two reasons that we don’t have an investigation: One, China is blocking it. And, two, we aren’t demanding it. And the reason we’re not demanding it is we are so completely dependent on our trade with China. Right now, people around the world, myself included, are criticizing Germany and Austria and others in Europe for being totally dependent on Russia...
    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Norway has slammed the latest Afghan Taliban edict demanding women cover up head to toe in public and warned that Afghanistan’s new rulers are “steering the country toward a humanitarian, economic and human rights catastrophe.” The Taliban decree, announced on Saturday, ordered all Afghan women to wear all-covering clothing in public, the traditional burqa, and threatened to punish their male relatives in cases of noncompliance. It evoked similar restrictions on women and other hard-line measures imposed by the Taliban during their previous, 1996-2001 rule of Afghanistan. Earlier this year, the Taliban decided against reopening schools to girls above grade six, reneging on an earlier promise and opting to appease their hard-line base. That decision has drawn international condemnation and disrupted efforts by the Taliban, who seized power in Afghanistan last August, to win recognition from potential international donors at a time when the country is mired in a worsening humanitarian crisis. “I am outraged by the announcement that warns that women in Afghanistan must cover their faces in public, cannot drive a car and only...
    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — Trade unions are starting their “Week of Protests” on Monday, demanding Sri Lanka’s government change and its president step down over the country’s worst economic crisis in memory. The Indian Ocean island nation is on the brink of bankruptcy and has suspended payments on its foreign loans. Its economic woes have brought on a political crisis, with the government facing widespread protests and a no-confidence motion in Parliament. Unions called for protests throughout this week, trade union activist Saman Rathnapriya said, and more than 1,000 unions representing health, port, education, and other key service sectors have joined the “Week of Protests” movement. He said during the week, the workers will stage demonstrations at their workplaces across the country. At the end of the week, they will launch a huge march up to Parliament, demanding President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s removal and a new government. For several months, Sri Lankans have endured long lines to buy fuel, cooking gas, food and medicine, most of which come from abroad. Shortages of hard currency have also hindered imports of...
    Getty Ben Simmons underwent back surgery. After trading away James Harden in exchange for Ben Simmons, the expectation was the Brooklyn Nets were going to be able to build another Big 3, but those plans never panned out. Simmons ended up never appearing in a game for the Nets and they were subsequently swept out of the playoffs by the Boston Celtics. It’s a disappointing end to a tumultuous year that started with the Nets being looked at as true championship contenders. There were a lot of questions about Simmons and whether he wanted to actually play for the team. Things seemed to be trending toward a playoff debut for him after missing the whole year, but Simmons had a back injury flare up and he never played. Shortly after the season concluded, he underwent back surgery and confirmed there were lingering problems after all. Many analysts ripped him for not playing for his team, and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith was perhaps the toughest of all. “Nobody is worse than Ben Simmons,” he said on April 25. “Ben...
