    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is being mocked across social media for pretending to be handcuffed while being led away from a pro-abortion rights protest outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday. "The funniest part about this video of AOC being escorted out by Capitol Police is her pretending to be in handcuffs," digital strategist Caleb Hull said. "She is a professional victim." Capitol Police confirmed in a series of tweets that they made 35 arrests, which included 17 members of Congress. They cited violations of laws against crowding, obstructing, and incommoding.

    A GROUP of women who tricked men into drinking breast milk by pretending it was a Pina Colada were kicked out of a trendy London bar, its spokesman said. The women, who claimed to have been thrown out by staff for simply pumping breast milk in public, were exposed by the bar for their lies. 4The incident happened at Tequila Mockingbird, a cocktail bar in East London 4The women claimed the breast milk was a Pina ColadaCredit: Getty 4One of the group falsely claimed on TikTok they had been kicked out for pumping milkCredit: Getty They had been drinking at Tequila Mockingbird, a cocktail bar in Shoreditch, East London, before the alleged incident saw them thrown out. One of the women poured a glass of breastmilk and encouraged unwitting punters to drink it, pretending it was a cocktail, a spokesman for the bar said. A number of customers allegedly complained to staff saying the group were going around tricking male drinkers to take a sip.

    Panicked Democrats are suddenly coming out of the woodwork urging the Biden administration to have a plan in place before Title 42 officially ends on May 23. But what, exactly, is their plan? Are they advocating for actual policies and programs to deter illegal migration, or are they quietly trying to pave the way for massive expansions in the number, method, and ease by which migrants can come to and remain in the United States. If you look closely at their quotes, press releases, and letters, one thing is clear: Their “plan” is to process every migrant in the impending wave smoothly and efficiently – asylum officers with rubber stamps await. There are too many examples of “don’t end Title 42 until a plan is in place” to count. Democratic retread Beto O’Rourke, who is running for governor of Texas, just knocked the Biden administration for failing to give border communities a plan on how they’ll process the wave of migrants once Tile 42 ends. “It does not make sense to end this until there is a real plan and...
    Wednesday, FNC host Tucker Carlson opened his program with his take on Democrats’ apparent overreach in politicizing the January 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol riot. Carlson dismissed claims January 6 was a “violent terrorist attack,” referring to it as a midterm election strategy. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Pardon the good cheer, solemnity is called for. Today is January 5, or as it will henceforth be known to all civilized peoples around the world, January 6 Eve. Tonight at midnight, just hours from now, we will begin the first of many annual remembrances of the horrifying atrocities that took place exactly one year ago at the United States Capitol. So how do you commemorate something like this history-changing event that’s horrible to think about, yet so significant in the life of the country? Well, body counts are the traditional measure. When the nation was wracked by unimaginable loss in years past. That’s how we remembered it. Forty thousand casualties at Gettysburg, 2,400 lost to Pearl Harbor, nearly 3,000 Americans dead on 9/11. But this is a new time, a different age. Those...
    AS the saying goes, you have to be mad to be a goalkeeper... and these No1's have provided us with some eccentric moments. In between the sticks for Manchester United, David De Gea conceded the most bizarre goal against Arsenal, when his own team mate Fred trod on his heel, leaving him on the deck as Emile Smith Rowe volleyed in from the edge of the area. 9David De Gea lays on the floor after being injured by his own player in Man Utd's game against ArsenalCredit: AP 9Earlier, De Gea was trod on by his own team mate Fred The controversial goal was allowed to stand with referee Martin Atkinson failing to blow the whistle before the ball crossed the line to stop play. But that's not the only bizarre moment involving the keeper as SunSport looks back at some classic incidents... DIVIOT Former Blackburn goalie Tim Flowers' unfortunate error always appears on blooper shows. In fairness to the ex-England shotstopper, he got his body behind a tame shot from Stan Collymore in a game against Liverpool in 1996....
    Fox News star Tucker Carlson says he’s “not pretending at all” to be against vaccine mandates in a craven pursuit for “prestige or ratings,” insisting that his outrage is indeed “real.” In recent months, and especially since President Joe Biden issued a series of vaccine requirements, Fox News hosts and commentators have railed against COVID-19 vaccine policies, likening them to tyranny while cheering on those who resist the mandates. Carlson, in particular, has been extremely outspoken against government and business mandates, even as Fox Corp. itself has instituted a much stricter policy than what the Biden administration is requiring for private-sector employers. In a speech last week defending his vaccine mandates, Biden noted that more and more large businesses are now mandating that their employees get vaccinated. At the same time, he erroneously said that “Fox News requires vaccinations for all their employees.” While Fox has boasted that over 90 percent of its staffers are vaccinated, it is not requiring all its employees to get the shot. Instead, the company is requiring daily testing for those who refuse to get...
    BRIAN Laundrie penned postcards pretending to be Gabby Petitio after she died, online sleuths have claimed. People following the case have pointed out that handwriting on postcards all allegedly sent by Gabby to members of Laundrie's sister Cassie's family appears to differ. 5Online sleuths believe Laundrie may have written postcards pretending to be GabbyCredit: 'Courtesy of Cassie Laundrie 5People have questioned how postcards with no postage on got to Laundrie's sister 5Cops are searching for Brian Laundrie following Gabby Petito's deathCredit: Universal News & Sport The cards are signed off from "Aunt Gabby", but online sleuths believe two may have actually been written by Laundrie himself following Gabby's death. This is because, they claim, the handwriting is different and two do not have postage on - leading to sleuths asking how they got to Laundrie's sister Cassie. In an interview with Good Morning America, said she hadn’t yet spoken to her brother Brian after he had returned alone to Florida in the couple’s van on September 1. On one postcard from Arches National Park, there are drawings of rocks allegedly...
    More On: texas Federal judge says DACA program is illegal, blocks new applications Critical race theory gaslighters and other commentary Lawmaker mocked over photo of her lingerie during DC trip Cop killed, 4 hurt during standoff with barricaded gunman in Texas Barack Obama once had some sage advice that Texas Democrats could stand to hear just now: “Win an election.”  Instead, Texas Democrats are — not for the first time — holding democracy hostage under the pretext of saving it. More than half of the state’s Democratic legislators have fled to Washington to prevent the Texas Legislature from making quorum and, thus, stop it functioning. Democrats don’t have the votes to get what they want, so they are seeing to it that there will be no votes at all, running out the clock on the current special session.  Why?  In Austin, the state House is considering an election-reform bill that already has been passed by the state Senate. The bill would impose such purportedly radical measures as ending drive-through voting and prohibiting municipal officials from sending mail-in ballot applications...
    A comedian dressed as Superman was unexpectedly hit by a bus after he tried, and failed, to show off his strength by halting the moving vehicle with his hand. Luiz Ribeiro de Andrade, who goes by the name 'Superman', was hit by a bus in the Brazilian municipality of Barra dos Coqueiros when his stunt went wrong on May 30. The presenter, 35, was dressed head-to-toe in a classic red and blue Superman outfit as he filmed himself trying to prove his super-strength by mimicking halting a bus with his hand. Footage shows the man of steel confidently standing in the middle of the road and holding a microphone as a bus comes speeding straight towards him.  Luiz Ribeiro de Andrade (pictured), who goes by the name 'Superman', was hit by a bus in the Brazilian municipality of Barra dos Coqueiros when a stunt went wrong on May 30  The presenter, 35, dressed in a Superman outfit as he filmed himself (left) trying to prove his super-strength by halting a bus with his hand, but he was instead hit...
    THE Circle's Millie Dutton-Forshaw lives in a huge Hampshire mansion that is so posh that it looks like a hotel. The student, 21, is starring in the third series of the Channel 4 show alongside her 57-year-old dad Jamie - and they're pretending to be a woman called Penny. 14Let's take a look inside...Credit: @millieduttonforshaw/instagram The father daughter duo moved into to a luxe apartment block in Salford to film for the programme, which first hit our screens in 2018. Some would say that their home for the duration of the series is pretty hard to beat - but Millie and Jamie's family home in Lymington is certainly a cut above the rest. The beauty, who boasts an impressive 16.8k followers on Instagram, has given a sneak peek inside their pad with a range of stunning selfies on her grid. She recently shared a hilarious video of her trying to teach her dad what certain slang words mean - which gave a look inside their stunning conservatory. 14Millie and Jamie are pretending to be 49-year-old PennyCredit: PA 14The...
    Republicans are suddenly pretending to be feminists — but it's all a sham
    When COVID-19 began spreading in China and theories of a lab leak in Wuhan began to spread along with it, the media and critics of former President Donald Trump were quick to stamp them down — until now.
            by Robin Burk  As the Supreme Court and others struggle with legal claims about this election, it’s worth considering just what precedes law and gives it validity. Over three millennia ago, a new people formed out of a motley assortment of tribes and hebraoi, herders on the edges of the rigid, hierarchical Bronze Age city states. What made them a people was not their coming together per se – tribal groups had aligned, and then clashed or drifted apart, many times before. Nor was it simply the result of sharing cultural practices or the newfangled idea of a written legal code. What made them a people was commitment to a covenant. When Moses came down from the mount, this people’s central history tells us, he brought concrete evidence that YHWH would bind himself to this new people, if they bound themselves to him and to one another. Not through force or power, as with many deities, nor as a transient agreement for the moment, but as the core of who they were and were to be. Every...
    ANTHONY JOSHUA says it is ‘crazy’ he is fighting Kubrat Pulev — as six years ago he was pretending to be him! AJ was drafted in by Wladimir Klitschko to mimic the Bulgarian in training ahead of their heavyweight title clash. 3Anthony Joshua puts his world titles on the line against Kubrat PulevCredit: ©Dave Thompson/Matchroom 3Six years ago Wladimir Klitschko called on Joshua to help him spar for Kubrat Pulev Joshua’s sparring helped Wlad get a KO win before the Watford fighter battered the Ukrainian three years later. Tomorrow Pulev is back on the scene against the Brit at Wembley Arena. WBA, IBF and WBO champ AJ, 31, said: “It’s crazy how the universe works. I’ve actually implemented some of the stuff Wladimir did in my training for this camp.” AJ also says he has boxing’s version of Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson in his corner. Team GB master Rob McCracken helped AJ to an Olympic gold in 2012 and three of four heavyweight world titles. After the June 2019 loss to Andy Ruiz Jr, some told AJ to...
    Thanksgiving hosts often use turkey as the centerpiece. LauriPatterson/Getty Images You should go turkeyless for Thanksgiving, even if it's been an annual staple on your family's table forever. I know it seems shocking, but hear me out. This year, your holiday gathering will likely be smaller due to COVID-19 restrictions, so if less than half of your table wants turkey, it's not worth the massive task of cooking it at all. Take this opportunity to try out a different recipe or make your family's favorite red meat roast instead. Now more than ever, when we may not be able to celebrate with loved ones, the holiday is about comfort and enjoying the foods you like best — you're not beholden to the bird.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Let's all stop pretending — we don't actually like eating turkey. I'm very used to being the only one in the conversation who will admit to not liking the standard Thanksgiving centerpiece. But going into the holiday this year, I'm seeing and hearing more people willing to speak...
    With Joe Biden apparently headed to electoral victory, Donald Trump has already signaled he will not go down quietly—will not accept reality. But will his minions continue to carry water for the one-termer? You better believe it. It’s getting harder and harder to pretend with a straight face that Trump won, but that doesn’t mean his enablers won’t try. Indeed, since Tuesday, Trump has sought to erode trust in the outcome of this election. Anyone who aids and abets this effort should be aware that they are nearing the point where they will cross a bright new line: It’s the difference from supporting a bad president to actively undermining the integrity of our elections and institutions. Don’t expect this to dissuade anyone. After appearing ready to dump Trump, a Fox News memo obtained by CNN’s Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy reportedly instructs the network’s talent not to refer to Joe Biden as “president-elect,” even after they’ve called the race.
    GARY NEVILLE blasted Paul Pogba for his "embarrassing" handball that led to a West Ham goal. The £89million midfielder appeared to pretend that Declan Rice's free-kick clattered into his face. "Its rubbish from him, rubbish!"
    For the hundreds of thousands of Facebook users who have been targeted by ads from the Keep America Great Committee, the group probably appears to be just another pro-Trump super PAC. Indeed, its ads, and the donation pages to which they link, look like they are from the Trump campaign itself. That’s because the vast majority of them are from the Trump campaign. The Keep America Great Committee has run hundreds of paid Facebook posts via two pages on the platform, and most are verbatim copies of ads run by Trump’s re-election team. Many ads even use the same first-person pronouns, referring to “my” presidential campaign and “our” efforts to defeat Joe Biden. KAGC did change one key part of the ads, though: Instead of directing people to the Trump campaign’s online donation page, it directed them to its own. And that page also looks identical to the Trump campaign’s, because it largely is. The website’s source code shows that KAGC used a free, open-source program to copy the Trump campaign’s donation page on the GOP fundraising platform WinRed, swapping...
