    President Biden's Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to bat away more questions about Hunter Biden's art sales on Tuesday as she insisted the White House did not know the identity of any buyers of his prints. She was forced to respond after it emerged that the president's son has sold at least five prints of his artwork for $75,000 each. The high prices have led to questions about whether buyers might believe they are buying presidential favor.   It was raised again on Tuesday when she was asked if the White House knew the identity of the buyers and whether lawyers were now scrutinizing who would be allowed into gallery showings. 'I know this is your favourite topic,' said Psaki when asked, 'but again it still is the purview of the gallerist.' 'We still do not know, and will not know who purchases any paintings. 'And the president remains proud of his son.' Jen Psaki said questions about who bought Hunter Biden's artworks fell under the 'purview' of the gallerist responsible for selling them and that the White House did not...
    For years, LGBTQ military members were only allowed to serve so long as nobody openly acknowledged their sexual orientation or gender identity. On Monday, the Department of Veterans Affairs announced that those service members who received other than honorable discharges for their sexual orientation, gender identity or HIV status are eligible for full benefits.  The announcement was made on the 10th anniversary of the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which had been put into place in February 1994 by former President Bill Clinton. It is estimated that nearly 14,000 gay and lesbian service members were discharged from the military in the 18 years the policy was in place, according to the Center for American Progress.  "At VA, we continuously work not only to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ Veterans, but also to address ongoing issues that LGBTQ+ Veterans face as a result of the military's decades-long official policy of homophobia and transphobia," Kayla Williams, the assistant secretary for public affairs for the VA wrote, in a blog post of the announcement. "...LGBTQ+ Veterans are not any less...

    With its manicured lawns and gently swaying palms, Harvard-Westlake is the school of choice for the children of Hollywood's elite.  Lily Collins, the actress daughter of Phil Collins, went there, as did Lily Sheen, the daughter of actors Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen. Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington and Cybill Shepherd also sent their children to 'HW', as the school is affectionately known. But in recent months, the £31,000-a-year institution has become a hotbed of controversy – the centre of what one parent, the mother of a teenage boy, described as 'wokeness gone mad'.

    Loki trailer dropped yesterday and quite a few things made fans go crazy. One was the possibility of more than one Loki variant. That could be a possibility because they are fixing timelines twisted by Loki by visiting them. In case, you thought you will miss Loki and his brother Thor’s bickering, Marvel Studios; found a fix for that too. They introduced Owen Wilson as Mobius from the agency that’s arrested Loki for tampering with the timeline. Their banter is quite fascinating. But what left many with questions was that split-second scene of Loki sitting with a lady in some purple corner of the universe. Now fans are arguing over whether it’s Black Widow or Lady Loki. Loki Trailer: Tom Hiddleston And Owen Wilson’s Sassy Buddy Banter Outshines The God Of Mischief’s Antics (Watch Video) We all are aware that Sophia Di Martino is part of the Loki series on Disney+. Apparently, she is lady Loki here. If it’s Natasha in Vomir, is it an illusion because our God of Mischief is quite a pro in concocting some. While we ponder...
    Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey that neither the Queen nor Prince Philip was the royal household member who questioned the darkness of the unborn Archie’s skin. On CBS This Morning, the day after Oprah’s blockbuster interview, co-anchor Gayle King said there was a “big guessing game” around the world about the identity of the royal household member who had questioned Archie’s skin tone, and by extension his security and status as a prince. The revelation has sparked fresh accusations of racism against the royal family, to which they have yet to respond. Winfrey replied: “He did not share the identity (of the person) with me, but he wanted to make sure that I knew—and if I had an opportunity to share it—that it was not his grandmother nor his grandfather that were a part of those conversations. He did not tell me who were a part of those conversations. As you can see I tried to get that answer on camera and off.”READ THIS LIST Covid-19 Cheat Sheet Politics Entertainment Media Royalist World Half Full U.S. News Scouted Travel ...
    Oprah revealed on Monday morning that behind the scenes, Prince Harry told her it was neither The Queen nor Prince Philip who had concerns over Archie's skin color, but he would not reveal the identity of who it was.  Harry and Meghan revealed on Sunday night in their bombshell interview with Oprah that there was a 'conversation', before Archie's birth, about his skin and how 'dark' it would be.  It was a stunning claim that prompted Oprah and the millions watching to ask who it was who had said it.  Harry refused to reveal that person's identity on Sunday night as did Meghan. They said they wanted to protect whoever it was.  On Monday morning, Oprah said on CBS This Morning that when the cameras were down, Harry made it clear to her it was neither of 'his grandparents.'

    Savannah Rychcik February 19, 2021 0 Comments President Joe Biden is applauding lawmakers for introducing the Equality Act. He noted in a statement on Friday he signed an “Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation” on his first day in office. “I directed agencies to implement the Supreme Court’s Bostock ruling, and fully enforce Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation,” Biden said. He added in the statement, “Now, it’s time for Congress to secure these protections once and for all by passing the Equality Act — because no one should ever face discrimination or live in fear because of who they are or whom they love.” Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) introduced the legislation to the House on Thursday. Biden explained the act “provides long overdue federal civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, locking in critical safeguards in...

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images. Viewers of Fox News can be forgiven if they are confused about the results of the 2020 election. The reason for their confusion is less defensible. Fox News has projected Joe Biden to have won the election— well, it’s news division has. Simultaneously, the network’s top-rated opinion hosts have continued to entertain the increasingly loony conspiracy theory that the election was stolen from Trump through widespread voter fraud. They have been careful in their words, but the near-constant amplification of baseless allegations of a rigged or stolen election has lent credibility to the InfoWars-esque conspiracy theories being touted by Trump. The same theories mocked behind closed doors are being laughed out of courtrooms. The growing disconnect between the two sides of Fox News programming reveals its current identity crisis and raises a question about their immediate future. Do they want to be a news outlet where facts, as disappointing as they may be, are paramount? Or an information entertainment company that today solely acts as cheerleaders for outgoing President Donald Trump? This dissonance was neatly illustrated last...
    Social media activist Shaun King in a Tuesday tweet vowed that he would indiscriminately name police officers of the Kenosha, Wisconsin shooting until authorities release the identity of the actual officer who shot Jacob Blake. “To the Kenosha Police Department, If you do not name the officer who brutally shot Jacob Blake on Sunday, we will simply begin naming officers from your department who may or may not be him,” King wrote. “Fuck it. Your protection of his identity is unethical. What’s his name?” King followed up his remarks by posting the names of two Kenosha Police Department officers and an image of one of them. The activist claimed one of the officers is under protective custody, but his allegation is substantiated only by a text message — the source of which is unknown. A spokesperson for Twitter on Wednesday morning said “I’ll get back to you” in response to multiple requests from the Daily Caller News Foundation asking whether King’s tweet violated their conduct guidelines, but has not yet provided further information.

    A civil war is raging over the identity of the progressive left and it appears to center around whether leftists should understand their politics on the basis of identity or class. As a result, the Democratic Party is alienating itself from its historic ties to working-class voters at the same time as its most progressive elements destroy it from the inside out.
    NEW YORK (AP) — A 25-year-old seeking a New York driver’s license with a nonbinary gender identity marker of “X” sued the state in federal court Tuesday. The lawsuit filed by Lambda Legal on behalf of Sander Saba challenges the state policy limiting gender identity on licenses to either male or female. Saba, a nonbinary transgender New York City resident, said the current policy is discriminatory. “Just knowing that my identity is not recognized by the state weighs on me," Saba said in a phone interview. The recent law school graduate said presenting an inaccurate license at a bar, a bank or at school can be “stressful, complicated and confusing.” The lawsuit filed in federal court in New York City names Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the commissioner of the state Department of Motor Vehicles as defendants. Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi said they have yet to see the federal complaint. But he noted that the state recently changed its policies to ensure that birth certificates accurately reflect the gender identities of transgender and nonbinary people, "and we are reviewing other government...

    First it stored a credit card, then car keys and now the iPhone could replace a physical passport or driver’s license. Apple filed a new patent that describes using the smartphone as a form of digital identifier that allows users to setup a verification for the documentation. Users upload their information into the system, which then verifies the claim against other databases with access to personal records. The patent also touches on the event of losing a device, which it notes owners of the device can have their information wiped to avoid identify theft.
