Google has removed far-right website Parler from its app store over the #Capitol riots

Google following pressure from human-rights groups and pretty much every common person has done what needed to be done. According to the company, Parler has now had its app removed after the app helped incite and plan the violence that led to the Capitol Complex invasion. Google maintains that the actions of Parler and its failure to moderate its site are mostly the reason why the app has been removed. According to Fox News (we don't link to Fox Here because we won't line their pockets) Google confirmed in a statement the news. "We’re aware of continued posting in the Parler app that seeks to incite ongoing violence in the U.S.," a Google spokesperson wrote in a statement. "In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app’s listings from the Play ...

Vaxxie is the latest term to emerge due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Similar to how “stimulus” is now “stimmy” and “stimmie” vaxxie now apparently means vaccine selfie in particular. First having appeared in the New York Times, the publication apparently helped coin the term for when someone takes a selfie while in the chair receiving their vaccination. In the article, it is described as a selfie in the chair and a symbol o people having hope instead o despair. While we’re not entirely sure that last part is accurate it scertainly joins a list of rather interesting words that have taken flight due to the pandemic. It comes amid an increasing death toll and may be a sign that people are looking to cope the best way they can.

Megs and Harry want Megxit review extension, although it may not happen

Given the testy relationship the former royals have maintained with the Royal Family as a whole. According to the Express, Meghan and Harry both want an extension on their Megxit deal which is due for review in a matter of months. They further reportedly want an extension on the ability to keep their patronages, although, that will ultimately be left up to Queen Elizabeth. The deals they've signed this year will most certainly face intense scrutiny from the palace as they aim to keep things aligned with the Queen. A royal who has almost never publicly revealed much so where she stands on the matter is virtually unknown.

Bye Bye Birx

Controversial task force member and healthcare official Deborah Birx is out of a job. According to reports, Birx confirmed her resignation this week following intensified backlash after it was found she violated her own recommendations. Over the holidays, as it turns out, Birx traveled to a vacation home whilst telling the rest of America to stay put. Many took the notion as Birx being outed as a hypocrite. "I will be helpful in any role that people think I can be helpful in," Birx told Newsy, "and then I will retire." The comments weren’t taken well considering Birx didn’t really own up to her own actions.

New report claims that Donald Trump has acknowledged he will not leave the WH on 20 Jan: Report

Setting the stage likely for a constitutional crisis never seen before, a new report claims Donald Trump is telling advisers to gear up he isn’t going anywhere. According to the report, via CNN, there have apparently been multiple temper tantrums as of late some of which appear to indicate Trump may be plotting an attempted coup. A coup that likely wouldn’t succeed due to the fact that even the Supreme Court and the Electoral College have already ruled against him. Thus, people close to the outgoing President suggested that he has discussed not leaving; issuing even more pardons than he already has, and so on. 'He’s been fed so much misinformation that I think he actually thinks this thing was stolen from him,' a Trump adviser said of the president.

Amazon ‘s Jeff Bezos is facing worldwide pressure to pay better wages, and more taxes

Jeff Bezos’ wealth has increased so much over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, that it might just be the time that he is forced to pay more taxes and do better for the world.

Since the onset of the pandemic, Bezos’ wealth has often grown at 5-11 times higher than just before the pandemic. A large part of that reason is because Bezos’ owns Amazon.com and its many subsidaries — a place where many people (including us for example) have turned to shop for essentials during lockdown. The letter notes that Amazon ‘s employees at this point are critical parts of the frontline agains the pandemic. Often entering unsafe work c...

Georgia has not only finished their recount, Trump has lost once again

On top of that the new recount has reportedly been certified. According to CNN, GA Sec of State Brad Raffensperger has confirmed that as suspected Joe Biden won the state of Georgia. Despite having done such at an apparent thin margin, legally Biden has won the state and there is nothing Trump can do about that. The network also reports that the votes in the state have formally been certified and it is too late for anything to be done to stop the process. It is a significant blow to Trump ‘s re-election (coup?) efforts in the country.

Jerry Harris, arrested for child abuse and child porn possession, will remain behind bars awaiting trial

Former cheer coach Jerry Harris who was arrested on child porn and abuse charges earlier this year —- will now remain behind bars while he awaits trial. According to the judge presiding over the case, Harris poses a significant and grave risk to the community and therefore wasn’t granted release pending trial. "By all accounts he was a rising star with a positive future ahead," Magistrate Judge Heather K. McShain said during a phone hearing, "but those positive aspects must be weighed against the aspect he hid from the community." "There is clear and convincing evidence that the defendant would be a danger to the community if released," she added. Harris is facing years behind bars on the charges and at least one verified rape charge.

Trumpian pony Candace Owens caught using black people as props, Twitter erupts

Make no mistake —- this is exactly on brand even for the likes of Candace Owens — a Black woman activist who has otherwise sold out her people and her own community for the all-mighty white dollar. This week Candace ‘s BLEXIT group appeared in numerous media reports because some say they’d been caught bribing black people from all over the country to attend Trump ‘s recent second-floor White House balcony speech. In fact, ABC News was among the first to report that BLEXIT gave stipends to those people; flew them to Washington, and paid for the expenses to do so. Owens of course has denied that they were used as props in typical right-wing fashion attempting to make the revelation a “left wing media problem.” EUROweb also reports that Owens rightfully received swift backlas...
