Breaking Scoops

A witness told me they saw GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert throw a mask back at a floor staffer when she was offered one while trying to walk onto the floor maskless. Members can now be fined in the House when maskless

Good to meet US Secretary of State @SecBlinken  today. I welcome President Biden's strong commitment to strengthen the India-US Strategic Partnership, which is anchored in our shared democratic values and is a force for global good.

The CDC has lost its credibility when it comes to what decisions Americans should make about #COVID . We need to get back to trusting the American people, not unelected federal bureaucrats.

Mamata Banerjee’s renewed efforts to patch-up with Congress. Watch more in this report. #Newstrack  with @rahulkanwal  #MamataBanerjee  #Mission2024  #Politics

Team GB sevens captain criticises lack of funding as men miss out on Olympic medal

Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey had no problem denouncing a reasonable and fair election law in Georgia, but refuses to condemn Chinese Communists for genocide.

The CDC’s decision yesterday wasn’t science, it was politics.

The abusive treatment of 1/6 defendants -- imprisoned before trial in solitary -- is largely ignored due to fear of being accused of sympathizing with them if you object: Just as neocons accused those who objected to the abuses of the 1st War on Terror of sympathy for Al Qaeda.


Scoops of the Day

BLM rioter punched a police officer in the face requiring surgical repair.  Punishment?  Released on his own recognizance!  Non-violent trespassing in Capitol on January 6th? Solitary confinement without parole! Double standard? You bet!

So a few months ago my workplace was ransacked by a violent mob that wanted to kill us. People died. The place was trashed. Now a bunch of my coworkers are acting like it didn't happen, which is weird and makes me wonder whether they might have been in on it. Am I paranoid?

No words will ever do justice to the monumental contribution of Shri@BSYBJP  Ji towards our Party and for Karnataka’s growth. For decades, he toiled hard, travelled across all parts of Karnataka and struck a chord with people. He is admired for his commitment to social welfare.

For 70 years, the Refugee Convention has ensured that seeking asylum remains a fundamental human right.

Today’s decision, sadly, was driven by politics, not science. Let me be clear: there should be no more COVID mandates, no mask mandates, no vaccine mandates, no vaccine passports, no lockdowns, and no school closures.

I love and admire Simone Biles and our Olympians. Beyond their determination and sacrifice, they evidence the greatness of the human spirit, in victory and in defeat. I take pride in them, not so much for the medals they win as for the grace, humanity & character of their hearts.

WATCH: I’m standing together with @SenWarren  and @RepPressley : President Biden should extend the pause on student loan payments. And President Biden should #CancelStudentDebt .

January 6th: Never forget. Never again USUSUSUSUSUS

How did CDC Director Rochelle Walensky go from asserting so definitively *just 2 months ago* that there is no health reason for vaccinated people to wear masks, to issuing today's alarmist message about vaccine-resistant strains? There were variants then:

Coca-Cola: We stand up for what is right across the world. Also Coca-Cola: We will not condemn the Chinese Communist Party for committing genocide, and we will support the Winter Olympics in Beijing.


Scoops of the Week

Could not have asked for a happier start to @Tokyo2020 ! India is elated by @mirabai_chanu ’s stupendous performance. Congratulations to her for winning the Silver medal in weightlifting. Her success motivates every Indian. #Cheer4India  #Tokyo2020

Today would be a great day for President Biden and Vice President Harris to #CancelStudentDebt .

Rep @Ocasio2018  on Critical Race Theory: "Why don't Republicans want us to learn how to not be racist? Why don't Republicans want kids to know how to not be racist?

After years of lying about me and my family, @TuckerCarlson is losing his mind that I won’t return his calls. Sorry, Tucker, I’m just not that into you. Who knows what lie he’ll tell next? #TuckerTantrum 

The FBI arrested exactly zero of the mob who attacked my wife and me. Meanwhile every day the FBI arrests anybody and everybody who came to DC on January 6th. Double standard? You bet! Kelley Paul: Our harrowing, dystopian night

Federal minimum wage: 2009: $7.25 2010: $7.25 2011: $7.25 2012: $7.25 2013: $7.25 2014: $7.25 2015: $7.25 2016: $7.25 2017: $7.25 2018: $7.25 2019: $7.25 2020: $7.25 2021: $7.25 How is this acceptable?

In a sane world, being pro-life would mean being pro-child tax credits, pro-home care and pro-vaccines. The Republican Party is none of those things.

Billionaires who can afford to take a 10-minute joyride to outer space can afford to pay a #WealthTax  here on Earth.

Absolutely delighted by this news. Dholavira was an important urban centre and is one of our most important linkages with our past. It is a must visit, especially for those interested in history, culture and archaeology.
