He cries wolf, again: Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), chairman of the Select Committee investigating the 1/6 Capitol riot is hoping some defendants being prosecuted by the Department of Justice will testify against Republican members of Congress and former President Donald Trump. Isn’t he the guy that kept claiming he’d “seen the evidence” of the Trump/Russia collusion? You know, the one investigators said there was no evidence of. But….but….oops.
This will not go well: Pope Francis on Friday directly reversed a signature liturgical decision of Pope Benedict XVI, moving to strongly limit use of the old Latin Mass. He suggested that those who favored the old Latin Mass had been exploiting the rite as a way to “reinforce the divergences, and encourage disagreements that injure the Church.” Maybe the “new breed” will go for this, but the old school Catholic’s will not be happy. This will not go well.
Get the “OFF”: “TORNADOES” of sex-starved mosquitoes have blotted out the sun in east Russia as they gather for mating season. Fast-moving pillars with millions of the insects rampaged on the the peninsula of Kamchatka, far-eastern Russia. Experts told the media outlet locals should not worry about this swarming, which was a mating phenomenon. The swarming males mosquitoes “do not attack humans”, she said. The Asian tiger mosquito is around four times larger than a normal mosquito and carries diseases such as dengue fever and Zika virus. But don’t worry, they won’t attack. Did anyone tell the mosquitoes that? I guess the “murder hornet” is gone.
Slow weekend in Chicago, 56 shot, 11 dead.
Dumb crook: A woman who was on the run for allegedly being an accessory to a murder in March has been arrested after commenting on the police department’s Facebook post asking about her reward money. “Where’s the reward money at,” Lorraine Graves can be seen posting after she saw that she was on the “Weekly Most Wanted” list. Graves was subsequently arrested the next day after detectives with the Tulsa Police Department’s Fugitive Warrant’s unit were able to track her down in a home in north Tulsa. There are no smart criminals in jail. If they were smart, they don’t do dumb shat like this.
Get what you deserve: A man was shot and killed while attempting to rob a person in downtown St. Louis late Sunday night, St. Louis police said. Officers said the preliminary investigation suggests the man was trying to rob a victim at the location when he was shot. The attempted robbery victim left before officers arrived at the scene and has not been located.
It should be: U.S. Department of Justice officials deliberately delayed an investigation into Hunter Biden’s potential tax law violations and sketchy overseas business dealings because of the effect it could have on the presidential election. Delaware’s U.S. Attorney David Weiss allegedly postponed allowing prosecutors to obtain search warrants and issue grand jury subpoenas last summer, after facing pressure from other officials who feared the investigation’s influence on the 2020 presidential election and now-President Joe Biden’s campaign. Why isn’t this on the front page in headline font? Why isn’t someone going to court and/or jail for this? Why am I NOT surprised?
Another not needed voice heard from: Actor Idris Elba is calling for more stringent ID verification measures on social media platforms in an attempt to combat racism online. He doesn’t say anything about id to vote. Oh, right, he’s a Brit and doesn’t care about American elections.
