    Philip Bump with the Washington Post watched conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s 2020 “election fraud” film 2000 Mules and offered a fact check for viewers. The film debuted this past week and has become a popular topic online for conservatives. Bump criticized it for attempting to deceive audiences into believing individuals engaged in a nationwide conspiracy to steal a win from former President Donald Trump. D’Souza has touted the film as making the irrefutable case the election was rigged. Trump has praised the documentary for showing the ballot box “was stuffed, and stuffed like never before.” According to Bump, the film relies on flawed cell phone geolocation technology, asks its audience to take leaps of faith and uses hyperbole to spin a wide web. Central to 2000 Mules’ message is that phone-tracking can be used to locate the movements of people. The technology was displayed in a scene where it was implied to have been used to solve a homicide in Atlanta — when it was not. After D’Souza shows his audience how the tracking technology works, he shows them people who...
    By Leyla Santiago | CNN Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has repeatedly pointed to the case of a family in the state’s Leon County to explain the need for a controversial new law, dubbed by critics the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, that bans schools from teaching about sexual orientation or gender identity, particularly to young children. On several occasions since signing the bill into law, DeSantis has highlighted the story of a woman named January Littlejohn, a registered Republican, who says she was not fully consulted about the school’s gender-affirming plan for her child. “We had a mother from Leon County, and her daughter was going to school and some people in the school had decided that the daughter was really a boy and not a girl. So they changed the girl’s name to a boy’s name, had her dress like a boy and on doing all this stuff, without telling the mother or getting consent from the mother. First of all, they shouldn’t be doing that at all. But to do these things behind the parents’ back and to say...
    (CNN)Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has repeatedly pointed to the case of a family in the state's Leon County to explain the need for a controversial new law, dubbed by critics the "Don't Say Gay" bill, that bans schools from teaching about sexual orientation or gender identity, particularly to young children.

    Fox News’ Peter Doocy elicited both laughter and a denial that he is a socialist from president Joe Biden after he asked him why the president is pulling the country to the left on Wednesday. Biden and Doocy are known for engaging in at times contentious exchanges during press briefings. Wednesday did not disappoint when the latter began shouting at Biden more than an hour into his address to the country. Biden had been calling on reporters but had yet to greenlight a question from Doocy. The Fox News reporter took matters into his own hands and began yelling from the back. Biden quieted the room and gave Doocy the floor. “You always ask me the nicest questions,” Biden joked. “None of them make a lot of sense to me, but — fire away.” Doocy asked, “It’s a new year, why are you trying so hard in your first year to pull the country so far to the left?” Biden responded by challenging the notion that he is anything but a mainstream Democrat. Biden said: Well, I’m not. I don’t know what you consider to...
    MATT Willis has opened up about his “amazing” son Ace after he became a victim of cruel trolls when he was pictured wearing a pink crop top. The former Busted star, 38, and wife Emma, 45, have always deliberately kept the children out of the public eye – they never attend celebrity events and only ever post pictures where their faces are obscured. 4Matt Willis has opened up about being a dad ahead of Father's DayCredit: MARK HAYMAN / FABULOUS MAGAZINE And when a photo of Ace, nine, rocking a pink crop top and showing his long blond hair prompted an astonishing response from a small number of social media trolls, whose tiny minds were frazzled by a boy who didn’t conform to gender stereotypes, it completely validated that decision. Speaking to Fabulous Magazine, Matt said: “Definitely. It 100% did.  “I don’t read anything – for a good few years now I’ve tried to stay away from that, so I don’t read comments and didn’t know anything was happening [until later].  “But it’s funny, he’s just our amazing boy and...
    The G7 Summit kicked off this Friday, June 11, 2021 in Cornwall, southwest England. The leaders of the major powers, all met face to face with their allies, this is the first time since the beginning of the health crisis. To celebrate this first day, the British royal family invited all leaders to a reception at the Eden Project. As tradition dictates, guests must be present at each official event before the Queen arrives. Only, Not everyone respects this protocol … In fact, Jill and Joe Biden came after Queen Elizabeth II. The U.S. presidential couple arrived in a car convoy five minutes after the Queen. This is a violation of state code of conduct. But no permission to the contrary was taken. Among the photos taken during the event, We can see all three leaders laughing together. So Charles’ mother does not seem to blame the President of the United States. In fact, she made so much fun even in the evening. The Queen of England has delighted her guests with many jokes. One in particular caught the attention...
    Bogus science WHY did scientists take so long to accept that Covid may have escaped from the Wuhan virus lab? The Sun backed that possibility in April 2020 and we were far from first. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest updates 3The fact a well-funded lab where Covid originated was experimenting with such a virus was judged a coincidence only cranks like Trump took seriouslyCredit: AFP Yet the “consensus” then was that it was a theory advanced only by tinfoil-hatted lunatics who refused to accept the apparently unassailable truth of the bat-pangolin-human progression. The fact a well-funded lab in the exact area where Covid originated was experimenting with just such a virus was judged a coincidence only cranks like Donald Trump took seriously. Any suggestion Chinese negligence was to blame was rubbished. Anyone calling it the “Chinese virus” was racist. Now, everyone from President Biden down is belatedly wondering if they haven’t overlooked the obvious. Last week Dominic Cummings rightly railed against such “groupthink”. Because the same complacent science and public health consensus was behind virtually every...
    'The general rule over human history is that once powers are yielded to the state at moments of crisis or emergency, it's never the case – or very very, rarely the case – that the state hands them back.' The words of Michael Gove in 2009 as he railed against Tony Blair's failed attempt to introduce ID cards. Yup, that's the same Michael Gove who now, as a senior government minister, is doing all he can to ensure the state maintains control over every aspect of our lives, even as the coronavirus pandemic very clearly subsides, the Indian variant notwithstanding. So what's changed? Is the only difference that Gove is now in power and thinks he knows best how to micromanage the lives of free citizens? Sadly, this government – and the SAGE scaremongers who pull the strings behind-the-scenes – have become addicted to the powers they've taken from us. Michael Gove is doing all he can to ensure the state maintains control over every aspect of our lives, even as the pandemic very clearly subsides, the Indian variant...
    A MUM has made a shocking discovery after realising a seemingly innocent paperweight she bought five years ago is actually an urn - and it has somebody's ashes in it. Jessica Roberts, from Wellington, New Zealand, picked up the heart-shaped ornament at a carboot sale for just $1 (50p) when her son begged her to get it, but has since tracked down the family who owned it to give it back. 4Jessica found the heart-shaped item at a carboot saleCredit: Facebook The woman took to Facebook to share the moment she first realised the item wasn't a paperweight at all, and that it was in fact used for holding ashes. She explained that her son had found it and wanted her to buy it so he could give it to her - which she agreed to as it was so cheap. However, it wasn't until a while after that she was browsing Amazon and came across some similar items for as much as $30 (£15). “I see the same paperweight being sold for $30 and...
    Getty It appears that the Rose Garden event to honor Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the next potential Supreme Court Justice might have led to the spread of coronavirus among numerous politicians, including the president himself. Trump confirmed he and his wife Melania had tested positive for COVID-19 early Friday morning. Shortly after, the president of Notre Dame confirmed that he, too, had tested positive for the virus. Hope Hicks and Senator Mike Lee have also tested positive for the virus. All of these people were present at the Rose Garden event, during which the majority of people present did not wear masks or observe social distancing protocol. The White House has not released a statement acknowledging the rising speculation that the Rose Garden ceremony for Barrett became a super spreader event for COVID-19. Here’s what you need to know: Photos & Videos Show the Majority of Rose Garden Attendees Did Not Wear Masks at the Ceremony for Amy Coney Barrett Well, its looking like the Amy Coney Barrett announcement in the Rose Garden was the COVID super...
