The fall of legal scion Alex Murdaugh is nothing short of shocking

As it turns out there are more holes in the story of Murdaugh 's family drama than initially realised. In the beginning, it was thought that the attempted shooting on his life was in fact by a stranger. But cops in the area and prosecutors now say that Murdaugh 's fall from grace has in other words become deeply more sinister than anyone had noticed. Prosecutors allege that Murdaugh allegedly hired his own hitman to shoot him nearly in the head earlier this month resulting in an even deeper mystery into an already troubled family. That incident reportedly happened as prosecutors further allege that Murdaugh was already entangled in a family row with his brother over supposed stolen millions from their law firm. In a further twist, cops say that Murdaugh hired his former c...

Los Angeles has activated vaccine passports here’s what you need to know

The City of Los Angeles has announced that vaccine passports are coming like many other parts of America.

The rules will also reportedly apply to Rams; Dodgers, and Chargers games within the bounds of the city. It is the first time LA will enforce such a thing within the bounds of its ...

Huge news in the United States this week.

Biden pretty much just mandated vaccinations for everyone in the United States

That is presumably if you happen to have a job for a private company (which most do) and that company happens to have over 100 people (even if say 101.) According to a new executive order, President Biden has announced that all employers who privately have more than 100 employees must now have all of their employees get vaccinated. It appears the order is being used under the guise of what are called the OSHA rules. In the order Biden made it clear that employers who successfully do not get people vaccinated or obtain weekly tests from each person will be subject to hefty fines. Reports indicate that those fines could be upwards of $14,000 per violating employer and have the opportunity to go much higher. Deeper in the order it was revealed that as of today federal employees an...

Larry Elder, who is running for Gov of California, wants to give descendants of slave owners reparations

In California politics quite literally anything is actually possible. The leading GOP candidate hoping to replace Gavin Newsom is making headlines around the world this week after he made some fairly shocking claims about slavery reparations. Before we go any further yes that GOPer is Larry Elder and yes Elder is a Black man who contrary to what he probably believes also came from the enslaved himself. When people talk about reparations, do they really want to have that conversation? Like it or not, slavery was legal,' Elder said.  'Their legal property was taken away from them after the Civil War, so you could make an argument that the people that are owed reparations are not only just Black people but also the people whose 'property' was taken away after the end of the ...

A judge has ruled Planned Parenthood clinics in TX are exempt from draconian new abortion law

In Texas the battle over a woman's right to her own body has entered a dangerous new phase. This week a draconian new law went into play barring most abortions after 6 weeks --- and if you've ever been pregnant -- you're probably aware that most don't know they are until about 6 weeks or longer. Gamble 's ruling comes against the backdrop of claims that the law would've created imminent danger for so many women in the state. Texas has now stopped abortions at that point. Judge Gamble (who we will not picture for obvious reasons) ruled yesterday that Planned Parenthood clinics are exempt from the new law for a host of reasons. The law allows private citizens to sue those including agencies they suspect of providing these services to women sans PP. TX 's law is an attempt ...
