    A progressive state senator in New York is accusing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of being absent from her community and disconnected from her district after a Twitter user claimed she blew off prominent health policy experts trying to discuss healthcare. 'Maybe if you spent more time in your office and with your team you'd know what goes on,' New York State Senator Jessica Ramos tweeted on Sunday. 'Just saying it would be nice if you breathed our air.' 'So, as an employer, what happens with the staffer who said this?' she questioned. New York State Senator Jessica Ramos (pictured on July 5) went after fellow progressive AOC for being 'barely ever present in the community' The Twitter attack against squad member AOC comes after a medical student named Daniel, with more than 8,000 Twitter followers, wrote on the platform last week: 'a couple of the most highly respected health policy academics recenly (sic) set up a meeting with AOC's office to discuss NHS style healthcare reform. They were told bluntly by AOC's staff, 'we're not doing healthcare right now.' Ocasio-Cortez responded with:...
    A fact-checker is pushing back against Don Trump Jr.'s latest claim suggesting the military's last 6 million hours have placed an emphasis on the so-called "woke" agenda. The Washington Post's Glenn Kessler highlighted remarks made by former President Donald Trump's son when he appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla. At one point during his speech, he criticized the U.S. military. “Our generals, the great woke leaders of our military that spent 6 million man-hours training our troops about wokeness — not fighting, not killing bad guys," Trump Jr., said on February 27. "They wanted to learn about White rage, a term none of us had heard of prior to him [Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff] testifying, right?” Donald Trump Jr. Bashes Biden Over Ukraine Crisis In Fiery CPAC 2022 Remarks | Full Speech youtu.be Kessler pushed back with the facts about the military's hours spent. He noted that Trump Jr.'s remarks would only make sense to conservatives who rely on information from far-right influential platforms like...
    Alyssa Milano has opened up about having flashbacks of being sexually assaulted when she gave birth for the first time, saying it 'triggered all of these memories.'   The actress, who shares a son Milo, ten, and daughter Elizabella, seven, with her husband David Bugliari, reflected on her childbirth experience during her appearance on this week's episode of People's new podcast 'Me Becoming Mom.' 'I remembered at one point [during childbirth] really not enjoying the fact that lots of people had access to my vagina,' Milano, 48, told host Zoë Ruderman.  'And thinking to myself, "Why does— I don't like this. Why does it feel so familiar? I've never had a baby before. Why does this invasive feeling feel so familiar?" That was just a fleeting moment, a tick in time, but I didn't forget about it.'

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 23-year-old Rochester woman has pleaded guilty to helping her husband after he allegedly set fire to multiple St. Paul businesses during unrest last year.

    The attorney representing one of six men indicted in last year's plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer claimed that an FBI agent told an informant to lie and delete text messages in an alleged attempt to cover up the agency's actions encouraging the conspiracy. Suspect Brandon Caserta's lawyer, Michael Hills, laid out the accusations in a court filing on Friday, asking US District Judge Robert Jonker to compel the government to produce all communications between FBI agents and a confidential informant known as 'Dan.'

    Kamala Harris' niece has raised eyebrows with an Instagram post urging people who care about LGBT rights and women's issues to defend Palestine - despite the country's rulers being among the most repressive in the world. Meena Harris, a 36-year-old lawyer and businesswoman, on Wednesday night shared her opinions, re-posting a widely-shared image discussing the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine. Harris has, in the four months since her mother's sister became vice president, managed several times to ruffle feathers in the White House - both with her new clothing brand, that Biden administration lawyers told her came too close to profiting from her aunt, and with an ill-advised tweet about a mass shooting.  'One cannot advocate for racial equality, LGBT & women's rights, condemn corrupt and abusive regimes and other injustices yet choose to ignore the Palestinian oppression,' she posted. 'It does not add up. You cannot pick and choose whose human rights matter more.' Meena Harris, 36, is the daughter of Vice President Kamala Harris's sister The post had previously been shared by Palestinian-Dutch model...
    First clues on how the Parliament of Catalonia can be after the elections of this February 14. After the closure of the polling stations, the first polls, by RTVE (GAD3) and TV3 (Gesop), draw a very tight panorama, with PSC and ERC in the lead, and Junts as third force, a long way from the rest. In fact, that group would also have a very tight result. The polls pose few surprises, with ERC and PSC closely matched in both votes and seats. Illa could reach 36 seats in the Parliament and the Republicans, at most, would stand at 38. JxCat would be third force with up to 33 seats. Farther away would be the rest of the forces. In fact, Cs, En Comú, Vox and the CUP would share the result, with seven seats each, with Albiach, yes, winning in votes. The PP, for its part, would stay with five in the highest fork. On the other hand, the PDeCAT would enter the Autonomous Chamber with up to two deputies. With these results, the pro-independence parties would reissue...
    There is already a principle of agreement on the ‘Rider Law’, although not a definitive text in this regard. The employers, unions and the Ministry of Labor reach a consensus to, for now, turn the riders into a sector of salaried workers. Delayed since the beginning of the legislature, and scheduled in the first instance for summer 2020, Yolanda Díaz’s portfolio set Wednesday as the deadline for negotiations between the parties. Retaken just after Christmas, the confrontation left the future of the famous ‘Law Rider’ in the air. In fact, if some kind of pact is not reached, Labor was clear that he would impose a common rule on all parties. With or without agreement. For now, and in the absence of a text on the table that is expected for the next few days, what is clear is that the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE) has had to make a decision. One that had been moody from the beginning of the conversations. Affirming that there is still no firm agreement, the employer’s association has yielded to the laborization...
    The news that Juan José Origel was vaccinated against Covid-19 reached the international media. The driver was criticized in recent days for posting a photograph on his social networks where he announced that he had traveled to Florida to receive the first dose. After this action, not only Mexican users were outraged on Twitter, but also some US citizens complained about the fact that tourists are receiving immunization before them. Faced with the controversy, Pepillo spoke with the “Ventaneando” program upon his arrival in Mexico and said that he agreed to the vaccine thanks to the fact that he applied in a call via email, but now the issue has escalated to media such as the New York Post, which reported the case to his readers.

    Nicolle Wallace may be a rising star at MSNBC, but she still gets asked about her 2015 firing from “The View” — a dismissal she admits caused her some personal pain. In a new, wide-ranging interview with the Los Angeles Times, Wallace, a UC Berkeley grad who grew up in Orinda, said she “loved” her time on the ABC. The network suits, however, apparently didn’t feel the same about her. Asked if a show that’s as contentious as “The View” really helpful for political discourse, Wallace replied, “Well, I think the problem was it wasn’t contentious that season I was on. Being fired from a TV show where you think you’re kind of baring your soul feels personal because it is. “It’s like being broken up with,” she added. “Because I never worked in entertainment I think what I didn’t understand is: It really was a casting, and it was a casting they didn’t like.” The 48-year-old Wallace, who served as a communications director for former President George W. Bush and an adviser to 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain,...
    I am not a Republican anymore, but I spent most of my life as one, and part of the deal when you're a Republican is that you get made fun of by Hollywood and the media. A lot. If you're a Christian, or conservative, or support Republican politicians, you can expect more or less nonstop ribbing from late-night talk shows, comedians, "Saturday Night Live," and the like. And if you get upset about it, people will wag their finger at you and ask, "What, can't you take a joke?" I think, as a result of that, that most conservatives have learned to laugh at themselves and take the occasional joke at their expense (if, at least, it's truly funny). Of course, the flip side of that is that liberals hardly ever get made fun of. So when it happens, they are really bad at handling it. There is a reason that alleged fact-checking site Snopes fact checks the Babylon Bee at least eight times as often as they fact check The Onion. And furthermore there's a reason that...
    THE FACTS: Although it's true that children are less likely than adults to develop COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has nevertheless counted more than 86,000 infections by the virus in Americans younger than 18. Trump's statements overlook severe COVID-19 illnesses and some deaths of children in the U.S., even though kids in general tend to get less sick from it than adults do. He also glosses over the fact that kids can spread disease without showing symptoms themselves. The CDC in April studied the pandemic's effect on different ages in the U.S. and reviewed preliminary research in China, where the coronavirus started. It said social distancing is important for children, too, for their own safety and that of others. "Whereas most COVID-19 cases in children are not severe, serious COVID-19 illness resulting in hospitalization still occurs in this age group," the CDC study says. Last month, the CDC also warned doctors to be on the lookout for a rare but life-threatening inflammatory reaction in some children who've had the coronavirus. The condition had been reported in more...
