    Daily Kos is fortunate enough to be associated with the poll team from Civiqs, led by former professor and statistical researcher Drew Linzer. That gives writers on this site a fantastic resource not just for polling data, but for insight into what it takes to create polling questions that are fair—that is, questions that actually draw information from the public on their real concerns rather than feeding them lines that are certain to draw a predetermined response. However, it doesn’t take the assistance of a data scientist or polling expert to determine that what Morning Consult did in a poll that’s making headlines on Tuesday is far from fair. According to Morning Consult, their poll shows that fears about “immigration policy that weakens whites’ power” are a bigger concern than mass violence committed by white supremacists for more than a third of all voters, and for 60% of all Republicans. How much truth there is in this “analysis” is hard to ascertain, because the way that Morning Consult framed the poll was blatantly designed to not only generate headline-worthy results, but to reinforce conspiracy...
    A woman has stunned the internet with a relatively easy question about time but not everyone is so sure of the answer. Erica Mallett, who goes by @erica_mallett on TikTok, shared the innocent-sounding question with her followers to gauge their reaction: 'You don't truly know someone until you've asked them'. 'You could have known them for 10, 15 years. You could feel like you know them inside out but the answer to this question will change everything you think you knew about them.' So what was the question?  Erica Mallett, who goes by @erica_mallett on TikTok, shared the innocent-sounding question with her followers to gauge their reaction: 'You don't truly know someone until you've asked them' @erica_mallett Not trying to alarm anyone but this question will make you see people differently #question #answers #time ♬ original sound - erica_mallett 'If I say we have a meeting at midday and then I say, "Can we move it forward two hours?", what time is that?'

    Ron DeSantis has ramped up his war with Disney as he said he will decide this week whether to terminate a law that allows the firm to effectively govern itself. The Florida governor this morning said he will hold discussions in the coming days over abolishing The Reedy Creek Improvement District. The move would mean ripping up the 55-year-old deal that allows the company to regulate land, enforce building codes and treat wastewater at the Orlando resort. It is the latest escalation in the ongoing war between DeSantis and Disney, which started when its bosses opposed his so-called 'Don't Say Gay' bill. The firm has come out strongly against the document, which forbids discussing homosexuality or transgender issues for children from kindergarten to third grade. Disney faced a backlash for initially failing to oppose the so-called 'Don't Say Gay' bill after donating money to all of its sponsors Walt Disney's 'Magic Kingdom': How 1967 law allowed the company to govern its vast Florida domain    The Reedy Creek Improvement District, a semi-private, special-purpose government, is controlled by Disney and spans 39...
    Kira Davis is host of the podcast 'Just Listen to Yourself with Kira Davis' and Deputy Managing Editor of Redstate.com  In what must be considered one of the laziest forms of modern protest, dozens of Walt Disney Company employees staged a walkout this past week in protest of Florida's Parental Rights in Education Bill. The bill, otherwise known by people who didn't read the legislation, is also referred to by the grossly inaccurate slogan — the 'Don't Say Gay Bill.' Here's the reality: The bill, expected to be signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis, bans formal education on 'sexual orientation or gender identity' for students in kindergarten through 3rd grade, or in any manner that is 'not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate.' Critics think that's hateful. Most Americans think it makes sense. 51% of registered voters said they support the bill, while 35% said they opposed it in an early March POLITICO/Morning Consult poll. Perhaps the most relevant number is this: A poll, admittedly conducted by a Republican-leaning group, found that 52% of likely Democratic primary voters in Florida back the bill. Regardless,...
    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tore into House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for his weakness in condemning Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) for promoting a depiction of herself getting killed. Ocasio-Cortez gave a speech on the House floor Wednesday as Congress debates whether Gosar will be censured for his Attack On Titan spoof where he slashes Ocasio-Cortez in the back of the neck and prepares to attack President Joe Biden. Her remarks came after McCarthy angrily swatted down concerns about the video, and he used his time to rail against the censure in a tangent of Democrat whataboutism. When Ocasio-Cortez got her turn up next, she countered McCarthy’s claim that the censure was “unprecedented” by saying “what I believe is unprecedented is for a member of House leadership — of either party — to be unable to condemn incitement of violence against a member of this body.” It is a sad day in which a member who leads a political party in the United States of America cannot bring themselves to say that issuing a depiction of murdering a...
    Megyn Kelly slammed President Joe Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci over vaccine and mask mandates and said she’s “sick of this bullshit.” During Kelly’s “The Megyn Kelly Show” Tuesday on Sirius XM radio, the host talked about how ESPN’s Allison Williams left the network over the company’s vaccine mandate and called out Fauci’s comments on whether Americans can get together for the holidays. (RELATED: Megyn Kelly Says She Left ‘Son’s School’ After Boys Were Asked Weekly If They’re ‘Still Sure’ They Were Boys) “It’s down to Fauci like ‘hmm, I’ll decide whether you have Christmas, I’ll decide whether you have Thanksgiving,'” the former Fox News host shared with her guest Eric Bolling.

    After getting the boot from ESPN’s college football coverage for refusing to get vaccinated, sideline reporter Allison Williams announced she’s quitting her job at the Disney-owned sports network over the mandate. Last month, after Williams was noticeably absent from the start of the college football season, she stated her decision not to get vaccinated while trying to get pregnant with her and her husband’s second child. One month later, her decision to quit ESPN appeared to come down to a moral dilemma over the vaccine.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Allison Williams (@allisonw_espn) “I am also so morally and ethically not aligned with this,” Williams said on Instagram. “And I’ve had to really dig deep and analyze my values and my morals, and ultimately I need to put them first.” “And the irony in all this is that a lot of these same values and morals that I hold dear are what made me a really good employee, what helped with the success that I’m able to have in my career.” “I...
    When the winter’s biggest storm washed out part of Highway 1 and dumped about 20 inches of rain on parts of the Central California coast, it also took out another key road — the one leading up to Hearst Castle. Now, that 2.25-mile stretch of damaged pavement is keeping the landmark shuttered until next year, just as the Golden State is welcoming back the world to its renowned tourist sites after 15 months of pandemic restrictions. To adapt, Hearst Castle is turning to Hollywood-themed virtual tours starting July 13, joining the likes of Kris Jenner and the dogs of Chernobyl on Airbnb’s online experiences platform. Though guests won’t be able to stroll alongside the famed Neptune Pool where Clark Gable and Cary Grant swam, a state parks guide will walk visitors through the grounds — sometimes in period costume — to recreate the experience from William Randolph Hearst’s time. Hearst Castle tour guide Tracy Kosinski points to gold-infused glass tiles at the indoor Roman Pool.

    Fans in the audience react as The Foo Fighters reopen Madison Square Garden on June 20, 2021 in New York City.Kevin Mazur | Getty Images As the U.S. pushes ahead with its reopening, easing mask mandates and lifting public health restrictions, much of the rest of the world is seeing an alarming surge in the number of Covid-19 infections and deaths. The stark contrast underscores how unevenly the coronavirus pandemic has spread, now hitting low-income nations harder as they struggle with access to vaccines, the rapid spread of new variants and heavily burdened health-care systems. It also shows why, even with nations such as the U.S., China and the U.K. recording relatively low Covid-19 infections and fatalities thanks to a mass vaccination drive, the global health crisis is still far from over. To be sure, more people have died from Covid-19 this year than in all of 2020, according to data compiled by the World Health Organization. The official global death toll stood at 1,813,188 at the end of 2020. More than 2 million people have died as a result...
    There have been more than 90 shootings along Chicago-area expressway systems so far this year, and over 220 shootings on such roadways since the start of 2020, Fox News has confirmed.  Ninety-three total shootings have been reported along Cook County’s area expressways as of June 7, Illinois State Police told Fox News Wednesday. Meanwhile, there were 128 expressway shootings reported in 2020, the agency said.  Local CBS Chicago was first to report the startling statistics, noting that the figures show there are, on average, over 10 expressway shootings per month. Meanwhile, just three arrests have been made in the 221 shootings reported since the start of 2020, according to the report. Chicago, like many cities nationwide, is grappling with patterns of increased gun violence, including drive-by shootings or those involving children.  CHICAGO GUN VIOLENCE HAS KILLED OVER 3 TIMES MORE KIDS IN 2021 COMPARED TO SAME TIME IN 2020, REPORT SAYS The Chicago Police Department said Monday that 55 people were wounded in 41 shootings citywide from 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

    Murders in Los Angeles County have skyrocketed more than 95% so far this year compared to the same period in 2020, and other areas of crime also saw increases, with the local sheriff calling the uptick "very, very troublesome."  "We don’t have good news unfortunately," L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said as before he listed off the latest crime statistics in a video streamed on social media.  LAX CARGO HANDLERS ARRESTED FOR STEALING GOLD FROM SHIPMENT: PROSECUTORS In addition to the 95.24% jump in murders year-over-year, the L.A. Sheriff’s Department (LASD) reported increases of 40.11% in grand theft auto, 22.40% in arson, 12.94% in aggravated assault and 7.82% in forcible rape, Villanueva said.  Violent crime was already up 36% at the end of 2020, he said.  VANESSA BRYANT FIRES BACK AT LA COUNTY FOR ITS 'FULL-SCALE ATTACK' ON HER IN ONGOING BATTLE OVER CRASH PHOTOS "All huge numbers, all very, very troublesome," he continued.

    Torah Bright, a gold medalist Australian Olympic snowboarder, fired back at critics who chided her for posting a photo of herself breastfeeding her child while doing a handstand. Bright’s photo was posted earlier this month as part of a Mother’s Day tribute collage on her own Instagram page. However, she received some criticism for the act with some describing her as "disrespectful" and a bad mom. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM On Tuesday, Bright addressed the concerns some of her followers had in an Instagram video. "I feel so silly even addressing this. The photo was just a little bit of pure fun! Celebrating the bond between mother and child," she captioned the video. "I can understand how it’s not everyone’s taste, that’s fine. But from some of the negative feedback, what has struck me most is how we all, especially mothers need to support and up lift.

    Chris Wallace pressed Congressman Jim Banks (R- IN) on Fox News Sunday over the House GOP planning to oust Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R- WY) amid her public statements calling out former President Donald Trump. Cheney has repeatedly lambasted Trump for continuing to push that big lie about the 2020 election. The number three Republican in the House is expected to be ousted from leadership this week and replaced by Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R- NY). As Wallace noted to Banks, Stefanik’s record is less conservative than Cheney’s. So he asked, “Is it just because of the fact that she’s not as loyal to Donald Trump?” Banks repeatedly emphasized that the GOP should be unified in opposing “the radical dangerous Biden agenda” and that “any other focus other than that is a distraction.” At one point Wallace directly asked Banks, “Is Joe Biden the legitimate president of the United States?” He recalled the congressman’s vote to object to the 2020 election results and his support of that infamous Texas lawsuit. Banks stood by both of those and, when pressed directly on the...
    Nearly 300 illegal migrants landed on British soil over the weekend, taking the total number of migrants who arrived in the UK this year to over 2,000. On Saturday, the UK’s Border Force confirmed it had intercepted and brought ashore 185 illegal aliens after crossing the English Channel in small rubber boats from France. The flow of migrants continued on Sunday, as another 92 people were taken in, according to BBC reporter Simon Jones. An analysis conducted by the Daily Mail found that the latest Channel crossings put the total number of illegals who have been recorded to have reached Britain this year to 2,293, more than the entire year of 2019, which saw 1,890 arrive. 2020 was a record year for illegal boat migration, with over 8,400 migrants arriving in the UK. However, despite promises to “take back control” of migration following the country’s official departure from the European Union, the flow has only increased. Last week, some 375 migrants attempted the journey in one day. While French authorities managed to stop 166 and take them back to France, British Borden Force...
    EXCLUSIVE: Sen. Ted Cruz’s vocal criticism of President Biden -- and backing of former President Trump -- appears to be paying off.The two-term Republican senator from Texas and 2016 GOP presidential candidate announced on Tuesday that he raised a massive $5,317,000 in the January-March first quarter of fundraising (Q1) this year. CRUZ TAKES AIM AT BIDEN OVER IMMIGRATION CRISIS AT SOUTHERN BORDER Cruz’s fundraising – which was shared first with Fox News -- was divided between Ted Cruz for Senate, which is his reelection committee, the Jobs, Freedom, Security PAC, which is the senator’s leadership political action committee, and the Ted Cruz Victory Committee, a joint fundraising committee that sends contributions to the reelection committee and his leadership PAC.

    Despite encouraging national trends in coronavirus-related hospitalizations and cases, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) worries that "pandemic fatigue" come spring could significantly hamper the country’s trajectory toward vaccination-induced herd immunity. The comments from Dr. Rochelle Walensky also come as additional states continue to detect highly transmissible coronavirus variants first identified in the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7) and South Africa (B.1.351). A separate variant first found in Brazil (P.1) has also been identified in two states. CDC models have projected that the B.1.1.7 strain could become dominant in the U.S. by March. "I worry that it will be spring and we will all have had enough," Walensky told Dr. Howard Bauchner, editor-in-chief of JAMA in an interview Wednesday. "At around that time, I worry that life will feel and look a little bit better and the motivation for those who might be vaccine hesitant will be diminished." COVID-19 VACCINE ROLLOUTS MAY BE WAY AROUND VARIANT ISSUE, EXPERT SAYS While states are grappling with vaccine supply issues now, an inflection point will come where supply will exceed demand, Walensky said,...
    A viral TikTok video from last year showing Subway tuna-mayonnaise being made has resurfaced as the fast food chain is hit with allegations that the product doesn’t include any tuna - or even fish. The short video, shared by a user named @highimmar in June 2020, shows a Subway worker as they prepare the sandwich for customers by dunking a frozen block of the tuna in a bowl and mixing it with mayonnaise. The employee takes the tuna from vacuum-sealed packaging labeled as ‘flaked light tuna in brine’. The ingredients on the packaging read: 'tuna, water, salt'.  It comes as Subway pushes back after a lawsuit filed against the company on January 21 claimed the tuna sandwiches do not contain real tuna.  Scroll down for video  A Subway employee last year shared this video of themselves preparing the company's tuna salad from a frozen package. The ingredients read tuna, water, and salt It comes as two California customers accuse the company of using fake tuna meat Last year, social media users were disgusted by the video of...
    A BLACK-and-white photo is causing quite the stir online thanks to one tiny detail - and it's left people spooked. The photo shows a group of women posing in their work uniforms at a linen mill in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in 1900 - but something seems out of place. 4People are freaking out over this image onlineCredit: Getty You see, resting on the shoulder of one of the woman is a hand, and while many don't see the issue at first, the hand appears detached from any arm or body. The old snap has reportedly been shared online previously, but recently resurfaced on Mumsnet by a user who wrote: "What do you make of this strange photo?" Viewers were left feeling "spooked" and "confused" after spotting the mysterious hand in the image, with one writing: "It's quite late where I am and I was about to go to sleep and saw this. I feel quite scared now." All of the women in the photo have their arms crossed in front of them, making it impossible for the hand...
    A fleet of Airbus SE A380 passenger aircraft, operated by British Airways, a unit of International Consolidated Airlines Group SA, sit parked near other grounded jets at Chateauroux airport in Chateauroux, France, on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020.Nathan Laine | Bloomberg | Getty Images SINGAPORE — Strong government support has stopped some airlines from going bankrupt — but more carriers could fail in the coming months, aviation experts say. Travel data company, Cirium, found that 43 commercial airlines have failed since January this year, compared to 46 in the whole of 2019 and 56 in all of 2018. A failed airline is one that has completely ceased or suspended operations, according to Cirium's definition. "Without government intervention and support we would have had mass bankruptcies in the first six months of this crisis. Instead, we have had a manageable number of bankruptcies and very few collapses," said Brendan Sobie, an independent analyst at Sobie Aviation. Sobie said many airlines were already struggling before the pandemic hit, but they now have a "better chance at survival" because of government help.

    Photo credit: Drew Angerer, Getty Images. After months of taking their cues from a president and White House that openly flouted CDC guidelines about Covid-19 — and implicitly demanded Trump’s personal protection detail do the same — outraged Secret Service agents are now bitterly complaining about the public heath risks they’re facing. According to the Washington Post, increasing numbers of the White House Secret Service detail, as well as those in the field assigned to work Trump’s mostly maskless, non-socially distanced campaign rallies, are taking to private message boards and discussion groups to vent their anger after a coronavirus outbreak has hit Trump’s inner circle. Secret Service agents expressed their anger and frustration to colleagues and friends Friday, saying that the president’s actions have repeatedly put them at risk. “He’s never cared about us,” one agent told a confidant, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the internal reaction… Agents who work in field offices around the country complained that since late August, they are no longer being tested when they return home from working at a rally for...
