    Amy Carlson, the leader of a New Age sect known as Love Has Won, died due to a decline brought on by alcohol abuse, anorexia, and dosing colloidal silver, according to an autopsy report from the El Paso County Coroner’s Office in Colorado. Mystery initially shrouded Carlson’s death after her mummified body was discovered in April in a green sleeping bag with its eyes missing in a home in Crestone, Colorado, arrest affidavits revealed at the time. Police had raided the home after being alerted by a member of the group who said Carlson’s body had been transported to a mobile home that served as the group’s headquarters from across the country. Several members of Love Has Won, who referred to Carlson as “Mother God,” were taken into custody after her body, which had been decomposing for roughly one month, was found. In interviews with law enforcement, the group claimed Carlson was not dead but was simply “out of communication.” But, in a report obtained by The Guru Magazine, Dr. Emily Russell ruled that Carlson “died as a result...
    Tensions are high outside the Kenosha Courthouse where a jury deliberates the fate of Kyle Rittenhouse, currently on trial after killing two individuals in August 2020 during riots that followed the shooting of Jacob Blake. Reporting on the scene Fox News reporter Alexis McAdams could be heard saying over footage recently shot “This man his arm with an ar-15 walkout outside of the courthouse during the jury deliberation.” She then clarified that “He was outside yesterday clashing with protesters. Sheriff deputies stopped him asking to see his permit and his license to make sure everything matched up. He put his weapon back voluntarily according to deputies.” Local authorities are concerned about a return to the deadly riots that led Rittenhouse to show up with a long rifle which he used to shoot two individuals who came after him. The jury is currently trying to decide the guilt or innocence of the 18-year-old who some believe acted solely in self-defense, and others see him as guilty of irresponsible — and deadly — vigilante justice from taking part in an action he...
    An ex-member of the QAnon 'cult' that flocked to Dallas to 'see JFK Jr. come back to life' has lifted the lid on the 'ugly' reality of the 'resurrection' - claiming that followers nearly bankrupted themselves to be a part of the gathering, where kids and elderly people were left sleeping on the ground for hours while their self-appointed leader paraded around acting 'like Jesus Christ'.  Devoted QAnon follower Maureen McNamara was one of hundreds of conspiracy theorists who traveled to Texas earlier this month to gather at the spot where John F. Kennedy was killed in 1963 under the instruction of a man named Michael Brian Protzman, who predicted that the former President's son, JFK Jr., was going to be resurrected.  According to Protzman, the late JFK Jr. - who died in a plane crash in 1999 - was going to come back to life at 12:29pm, the same time that his father was killed, on November 2 and then announce plans to run for Vice President in 2024 alongside Donald Trump.  Q members flew from all around the world and...

    ROME (AP) — The Latest on the Group of 20 summit taking place in Rome. ROME — Italy is deploying 5,300 extra troops and police officers, curbing public transport and sealing off a whole neighborhood of Rome to keep the peace during this weekend’s Group of 20 summit. Police were out in force already Friday as leaders began arriving, and schools in the Italian capital canceled afternoon activities so students could get home before most roadblocks were set up. Protests and demonstrations were planned throughout the weekend. The main security zone was around the “Nuvola” cloud-like convention center in Rome’s Fascist-era EUR neighborhood. But other areas were being cordoned off at different times depending on where the leaders were, including around the presidential palace and even the Trevi Fountain. COVID-19 economic recovery and climate change are the two main issues being discussed by the leaders of the world’s 20 biggest economies, who are gathering in Rome before heading to Glasgow, Scotland, for the U.N. climate conference.

    Afghanistan's only female tour guide has told of the terrifying ordeal she faced trying to escape the war-torn country, with people killed and beaten inside the airport during the stampede to leave. Fatima, who is concealing her surname, was told to leave the city of Herat where she was living by the UN security council in early August as the Taliban moved in.  It was feared that she could be a target for the Taliban as the story of her success in the country's tourist industry was published around the world. The 23-year-old, who started guiding professionally in 2020 after studying journalism at the Herat University, travelled to Kabul in a bid to catch a flight to safety. But speaking to MailOnline, Fatima said there she witnessed things that will scar her forever.

'When we first attempted to get into the airport it was so crowded,' she said. 'I saw...

    White evangelical protestants are the most likely to refuse the COVID-19 vaccine out of all major religious groups in the US, with around 24 percent saying they won't take the shot.  New research from the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) shows vaccine uptake and hesitancy differs among religious groups across America, with members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) second least likely to get vaccinated, with 19 percent of this group saying no to the shot, according to the survey. Meanwhile, Jewish people are most likely of all religious groups to get the jab with 85 percent willing to get vaccinated, 8 percent describing themselves as hesitant and just 7 percent refusing to take it. The findings reveal that religion appears to play a role in determining whether or not Americans choose to get vaccinated against COVID-19, with almost one in five (19 percent) of refusers saying a faith-based approach would make them more likely to change their minds.  This comes as the nation's vaccination program has somewhat stalled while COVID-19 cases are surging once again, driven by...

    More On: Morgan Wallen Morgan Wallen blew off the NAACP after N-word controversy ACM Awards missing a few big names in country music Morgan Wallen speaks out following N-word controversy Morgan Wallen’s music surges on iTunes charts after racial slur video Morgan Wallen admitted that a leaked video of him saying the N-word earlier this year was not the first time he used the racial slur. “I wouldn’t say [I’ve used it] frequently. No, no, not frequently. It was just around this certain group of friends,” the country singer, 28, told Michael Strahan on “Good Morning America” Friday in his first interview since the scandal. Wallen faced immense backlash on social media in February after TMZ published a video of him drunkenly telling a friend to “take care of this p–y-ass n—a” when they returned home from a night out in Nashville. The “Whiskey Glasses” singer’s record label, Big Loud, swiftly responded by indefinitely suspending him, and several radio stations stopped playing his music. “My manager called me probably two hours before the video came out,” Wallen recalled Friday....
                        Winona LaDuke, the leader of the Honor the Earth environmental group, was arrested along with six other women while protesting the Line 3 pipeline. As was reported on WCCO, three of the arrested water protectors “locked down one of Enbridge’s drills on Tuesday morning, halting drilling under the Shell River.” The women are facing trespassing charges. These arrests bring the total number of protesters arrested to over 600. The Line 3 pipeline has been controversial since the start, with many environmentalists concerned about the potential impact of the line on the lakes and rivers it will flow through. The activists also say the line would worsen climate change and having the line would increase the risk of spills in areas where Native Americans hunt and fish, impacting the tribal lands and their way of life. As reported by The Minnesota Sun, one weekend in June, around 250 water protectors were arrested at a protest that drew activists from around the country. “Activists have been coming to protest the...

    LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– A consortium of restaurateurs, artists, and enthusiasts are hoping they can shape the future of Casa Bonita after the owners filed for bankruptcy earlier this month.

    Mar 1 (.) – Spanish blood products group Grifols has closed the purchase of 25 plasma donation centers in the United States from a BPL group subsidiary for 370 million dollars (307 million euros), as part of its plan to increase plasma supply.

    Amy Poehler and Tina Fey got straight to the point. During the 2021 Golden Globes broadcast, the co-hosts and former “SNL” queens immediately addressed the lack of black members in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association following a damning report that led to a Time’s Up protest. “The HFPA is made up of about 90 international no black journalists,” Fey, 50, cracked. “We say around 90 because a couple of them might be just ghosts and it’s rumored the German member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on.” “This is something we probably should have told you earlier, everyone is understandably upset at the HFPA and their choices,” Poehler, 49, admitted in her opening monologue before cutting to the chase: “A lot of flashy garbage got nominated. But that happens, that’s like their thing. A number of black actors and black-led projects were overlooked.” “We all know awards shows are stupid,” said Fey, to which Poehler responded: “We all know they’re a scam invented by big red carpet.” “Inclusivity is important and there are no black...
    NAIROBI – Fires that appear to have been deliberately set destroyed more than 500 structures this week in and around Ethiopia’s Gijet town, an analysis of satellite imagery shared with Reuters has found, adding credence to reports of continued conflict in parts of the northern region of Tigray. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed declared victory over a rebellious regional force, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), at the end of November after its fighters withdrew from the region’s main cities and towns. But sporadic fighting continues in some parts of Tigray, according to residents and United Nations assessments. The government has acknowledged isolated incidents of shooting but has said that most fighting has stopped in Tigray. Mulu Nega, head of Tigray’s government-appointed interim administration, told Reuters he had sent a team to the Gijet area to investigate. “According to preliminary information I have received in Gijet there was fighting between Ethiopian federal forces and local militias,” he said later.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Concerns over violent protests at the Ohio Statehouse on Sunday faded as a small number of armed but peaceful demonstrators were considerably outnumbered by state troopers and National Guard members during an afternoon rally. More than two dozen protesters, some armed with assault-style rifles and wearing military garb, argued with one another, sometimes with competing bullhorns, about a mix of causes including government overreach and election fraud from noon to shortly after 2 p.m. The protesters were observed by numerous troopers and National Guard members, whose members also guarded multiple points around the Statehouse, including every entrance. Nearly every business around the downtown capital square was boarded up. Several demonstrators said they were members of the anti-government Boogaloo movement, whose members espouse a coming civil war. They said they were inaccurately painted as supporters of President Donald Trump, whom at least one demonstrator said he hated, using an expletive. One woman supporting Trump held a sign protesting social media platforms’ ban of right-wing content along with Trump’s removal from Twitter and Facebook. Kathy Sherman, 71, also...
    Lawyers accused the Boy Scouts of “infringement” after they say parents accidentally signed their daughters up for the Boy Scouts thinking it was the Girl Scouts. The Boy Scouts responded by saying that the Girl Scouts were starting a “ground war,” BBC News reported. The Board of Directors for the Boy Scouts voted unanimously in October 2017 to begin accepting girls into the group. In 2018, the Boy Scouts stopped using the word “boy” in their recruitment programs and began accepting girls. The group renamed itself “Scouts BSA.” The move prompted a trademark infringement lawsuit from the Girl Scouts in November 2018, which accused the move by the Boy Scouts of being “uniquely damaging” to them. (RELATED: Girl Scouts Of The USA Files Lawsuit Against Boy Scouts Of America Over Advertising Concerns) The Girl Scouts accused the Boy Scouts of operating a “covert campaign” to recruit girls after the organization and claimed it experienced a “well-documented” decline in membership.

    A pair of Mexican journalists recorded the moment they came under fire in a terrifying ambush by drug cartel gunmen while they reported on the work of a small town's self-defense force. Televisa reporters Marco Antonio Coronel and Fernando Guillén had traveled to Tepalcatepec, Michoacán, to document how an auto-defense group has been combating the Jalisco New Generation Cartel They were transiting through a remote road  when cartel gunmen opened fire from an abandoned building. Coronel and Guillén were sitting on the flatbed of a pickup truck that was converted into a makeshift armored vehicle as the cartel assaulted the auto-defense group's convoy. The self-appointed Tepalcatepec Auto-defense group is made up of local residents who have taken up arms against the region's vicious cartels. The residents were seen returning fire through small holes cut in the sides of the makeshift armored car as the reporters desperately took cover.
    Isle of Wight locals are baffled by the arrival of a monolith as the art collective behind similar shiny statues popping up around the world said the south coast sculpture is not their responsibility.   The three-sided metal object was found by beachgoers at Compton Bay on the Isle of Wight on Sunday.  The Most Famous Artist, also known as Matty Mo, is thought to have been behind some of the other monoliths that appeared in the US. But the sculptor has denied creating the Isle of Wight structure, saying the piece was 'out of his control'.  The Isle of Wight's tourist board has welcomed the arrival, saying this morning: 'We track all of our marketing efforts, but didn’t realise that our “discover the Isle of Wight” message had got to a galaxy far far away".'  A three-sided metal monolith has appeared on a beach on the Isle of Wight, following a month of similar structures being discovered and then disappearing across the US and in Romania Locals were quick to question whether images of the monolith posted on social...
    VIDEO3:0203:02OPEC to discuss delay of January 2021 output increasesSquawk Box OPEC warned on Monday that the "immense challenges" caused by the Covid-19 pandemic were likely to persist into 2021, as the group of oil producers continues high-stakes negotiations over an extension to its production cut agreement. "The shock to the oil industry is massive and its severe impacts will likely reverberate in the years to come," Abdelmadjid Attar, OPEC president and Algeria's energy minister, told the group on Monday.   "The pandemic continues to rage with cases soaring in many regions around the world. It continues to affect adversely the global economy and, consequently, the world energy markets, in an unprecedented manner." Reuters, citing Algeria's state news agency APS, reported that OPEC members had reached a consensus to extend the production curbs for three months, but further talks were needed to convince members of the OPEC+ alliance at their meeting on Tuesday to back the policy.

    The fatal shooting of Lee Keltner and the arrest of Matthew Dolloff on suspicion of first-degree murder following dueling demonstrations at Civic Center Park on October 10, has put 9News in the sort of awkward position broadcast outlets seek to avoid: being the story rather than covering it. The station had contracted with Dolloff to provide security for a crew assigned to the afternoon events: a so-called Patriot Muster involving ultra-conservative, pro-police forces and a BLM-Antifa soup drive scheduled around the same time as a way of countering the other group's messaging. Soon after Dolloff's arrest, the city reported that he was not licensed as a security guard in Denver; now, 9News says that its employees had no idea he was packing heat. The station has also released two new videos, including one showing an argument between Keltner and a Black Lives Matter protester in the moments before the shooting.Related Stories "Mace Me, Motherf*cker" Video and Post-Protest Killing Media Frenzy How Patriot Muster-BLM Soup Drive Demonstrations Went to Hell BLM Event v.

    One of the 13 militiamen involved in the plot to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer also called President Trump a 'tyrant' and described all government workers as 'enemies'.  The men are all right-wing fanatics who plotted to kidnap Whitmer at her vacation home in Michigan. They wanted to put her on trial for 'treason' in a safe house in Wisconsin, but had their plot foiled by the FBI.  Another part of their plan was to 'instigate a civil war', according to charging documents filed on Thursday.  In one of the many videos posted on social media by the men, Brandon Caserta, one of the men charged, fumes: 'Trump is not your friend, dude.  'It amazes me that people actually, like, believe that when he’s shown over and over and over again that he’s a tyrant.  'Every single person that works for government is your enemy, dude.'  It has also been revealed that the Michigan Attorney General's Office knew about the plot and had to move Whitmer and her family around to keep them safe.  Scroll down for video  Brandon Caserta, in...
