Miami Herald throws support behind Republican who says she was abducted by aliens

Published

on

The Miami Herald has endorsed a Republican candidate running for Congress in Florida’s 27th District that says she was abducted by aliens when she was 7-years-old.

According to The Herald, the editorial board was put in an awkward position by the front-runners in the GOP primary, who refused to sit down with the paper. Another candidate said that he wasn’t interested in the endorsement. It left few options for the paper to consider for their political endorsements. However, they said that they were impressed by business consultant Bettina Rodriguez-Aguilera.

They touted her “working class agenda” with detailed reforms to make to housing, credit scores, student loan payments and other issues. She’s the daughter of Cuban political prisoner, Rodriguez Aguilera.

However, The Herald acknowledged that she’s an unusual candidate.

“Last year, she told the Miami Herald — and several Spanish-language media outlets — that she believes in extra-terrestrials,” the endorsement stated. “She says when she was 7, she was taken aboard a spaceship and, throughout her life, she has communicated telepathically with the beings, which remind her of the concrete Christ in Brazil.”

They were quick to explain that her secret telepathic conversations with aliens were “non-issues” because as a former official and businesswoman she is a professional.

The race is to fill a seat left vacant by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL). In the Democratic Primary, The Herald endorsed Democrat David Richardson, who spent 10 years at The Herald and as program director for the Knight Foundation.

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) served as a payload specialist on the Space Shuttle Columbia. He has not revealed whether or not he saw aliens while in space.

Two officers involved in George Floyd’s killing were frequent subjects of violence complaints — but never disciplined

Published

Two of the Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd's killing were previously involved in other violent on-duty incidents.

Derek Chauvin, who kneeled on the 46-year-old Floyd's neck for nine minutes as he begged for his life, and Tou Thao had been the subjects of more than a dozen civilian complaints in their combined 29 years on the force, reported The Guardian.

Chauvin, a 19-year veteran, has faced three verbal reprimands, but a database by Minneapolis’ Communities United Against Police Brutality show both he and Thao, a 10-year veteran, never faced disciplinary action.

Trump’s new anti-Twitter order could blow up in conservatives’ faces: Top right-wing media personality

Published

on

President Donald Trump's new executive order that's aimed at opening social media companies up to more lawsuits could seriously backfire on conservative critics of the platforms, writes one top right-wing media personality.

In analyzing the reported contents of Trump's new order, conservative Ben Shapiro warns that stripping websites' immunity for the content posted on their pages by third parties could seriously damage conservative media in the future.

"Here's the inevitable effect of destroying [Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act]: all comments sections will be taken down," writes Shapiro. "No website has the resources to actively edit all comments in order to shield themselves from liability, and no website is willing to leave comments entirely standards-free."

Trump executive order against social media giants denounced as unlawful ploy to ‘eviscerate public oversight of his lies’

Published

on

"Undoubtedly the first step down an increasingly dark path of Trump using the power of his office to intimidate media companies, journalists, activists, and anyone else who criticizes him into silence."

Advocacy groups and legal experts say an executive order President Donald Trump is expected to sign Thursday—a document the White House claims is an effort to curtail the power of social media—is nothing more than an unconstitutional attempt by the president to "bully" into submission platforms that fact-check or criticize him.
