Chuck Bednar for redOrbit.com – @BednarChuck It's long been known that smoking pot gives people the munchies, but what about marijuana causes this uncontrollable urge to consume mass quantities of junk food? That's what a team of researchers from Yale University wanted to find out in a recently-published study. As the Los Angeles Times reported on…
According to a statement from Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), he has accepted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's invitation to sit on the House select committee investigating the Jan 6th Capitol riot.
Writing, "When duty calls, I will answer," the military veteran said he will be joining fellow Republican Rep. Lynne Cheney (R-WY) on the committee after House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy withdrew his choices following a dispute with Pelosi.
In his statement, the GOP lawmaker wrote, "Today, I was asked by the Speaker to serve on the Jan 6 Select Committee and I humbly accepted."
You can see Kinzinger's statement below:
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) suggested on Sunday that Joe Biden's administration may use "computer-generated graphics" to fake the president's speeches.
Nunes made the remarks during an appearance on Fox News after he was asked about Biden's performance at a recent CNN town hall event.
"You know it's getting bad when the propaganda machine that the Democratic socialists control in this country -- they control 95% of the media or so," he opined. "And then you take the big tech oligarchs that control and censor what we receive via social media. When that poison gets to the average independent American, that propaganda, you know it's bad when they can't even find a 15- or 30-second soundbite out of a full-hour town hall that they can plug into their own propaganda machine."
Nunes added: "I mean, it's getting really bad. It's not just the president. They can't get any soundbites from the vice president either."
The Republican lawmaker claimed that deep state actors are "almost to the point where they're going to have to start using computer-generated graphics in order to give to the propaganda machine because they can't get good clips to sell what they're trying to sell here in Washington, which are policies that are running the country into the ground."
Watch the video below from Fox News.
On Sunday morning, Donald Trump Jr. attempted to ride to the rescue of Tucker Carlson after a video was posted online showing the nervous Fox News personality being harangued by a man in Montana for hurting Americans with his extremist rhetoric.
In the video that went viral, Carlson is told by a man identified as Dan Bailey, "You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that," with Bailey later adding a note online that read, "It's not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an assh*le!"
Reacting to the video -- and helping to spread it even further -- Trump Jr. made a stab at a joke that, not only fell flat, but boomeranged on him and his ex-president father, Donald Trump
"Is the loser who went out of his way to have someone video him harassing Tucker in public for some viral content the model for the new Pregnant Male Emoji? The likeness is uncanny! #SoBrave," Don Jr wrote in defense of Carlson.
Few agreed with him as you can see in the comments below:
