Former conservative talk show host Megyn Kelly said CNN is partially to blame for the Capitol riots earlier this month.

In an interview on Saturday, the journalist said the biased way CNN reported on President Trump made the public lose trust in their coverage. She added the left-leaning station “just couldn’t check their own personal feelings” about President Trump.

Kelly suggested part of the reason violence happened at the Capitol is because Americans don’t know where to turn for truthful information and reporting.

“They just couldn’t check their own personal feelings about him,” Kelly stated. “Part of the reason we saw what happened on the Capitol two weeks ago was because there’s been a complete lack of trust in the media.”

Kelly also mentioned CNN spent years proving they have a bias against President Trump.

A California resident who tested positive for COVID-19 in December died after receiving a vaccine. The individual reportedly perished in Placer County, California on Thursday, several hours after getting the coronavirus vaccine.

They reportedly contracted the virus in December, and despite a CDC recommendation to not get vaccinated within 90 days of a positive test, received the vaccine.

While it is unclear which COVID-19 vaccine the patient received, health officials said people should not be too quick to blame the vaccine for the death.

“We know that the severe allergic reactions that occur following immunization, the vast majority of those occur 15-30 minutes following immunization, so something that occurred several hours later is probably not the severe allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, that we worry about,” Dr. Dean Blumberg said, infectious disease expert at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

Authorities said multiple agencies are investigating the death.

Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) said the impeachment trial for President Trump is unconstitutional. On Sunday, the Republican explained he believes the Constitution indicates only current presidents can be impeached.

He went on to refer to the situation as a “moot point,” emphasizing events during the Capitol riots are not impeachable offenses if he is not president anymore. Rounds noted the Senate should be more focused on other matters, such as confirming Joe Biden’s Cabinet nominees.

“To begin with, I think it’s a moot point, because Donald Trump is no longer the president, he is a former president,” Rounds stated. “Article 1 Sections 6 and 7 specifically point out you can impeach the president, and it does not indicate that you can impeach someone who’s not in office.”

Other GOP senators have voiced similar sentiments, but Democrats in the chamber are insisting on holding an impeachment trial.

An inventor in Nigeria has made waves worldwide with his latest creation. Ibitoye Michael spent the last three years building a car entirely out of scrap metal, spare pieces and a 1.6 Volkswagen engine. The car has four gears and runs on petrol.

Michael claimed since he was a young boy, he’s always wanted to build the first car he would drive. His aunt said she had noticed Michael’s innovative tendencies when he was just a child.

“He started on this thing even from childhood. Anytime we bought a toy, gun or anything for him, he would break it,” Abimbola Oluwayomi, Michael’s aunt said. “That was when I noticed that this boy is going to be somebody in life.”

However, since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, it was a difficult venture for the young innovator.

“Due to the lockdown, the economy in Nigeria, as a result of the pandemic, I was unable to get enough funds so I decided writing letters to people that I knew could support me,” Michael said.

Michael’s achievement made him hopeful that he can learn more and better his self-taught skills abroad.

“I would like to go abroad to study more on designing the mech engine, which I wanted to go for when I was in school,” Michael said.

The result of his dream can be seen in Ibadan in South Western Nigeria.

The Seattle police chief vowed to take firmer legal action on rioters taking aim at businesses. Chief Adrian Diaz announced the tighter vandalism policies on Saturday.

This came as a number of recent demonstrations have left numerous businesses severely damaged and business owners have voiced frustration over the lack of accountability for such crimes.

The police chief said the violence the city has seen has little meaning or direction and does not coincide with any social justice messages.

“We also just want to make sure that people understand that now people are going to get prosecuted, that this is not just going to end up landing in some black hole, that we are going to move forward on prosecution,” Diaz stated.

Diaz added Seattle police will especially crack down on vandals who have been arrested multiple times and overall increase accountability.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has continued to firmly assert that voter fraud occurred in the 2020 election.

In an interview on Sunday, Paul said there were instances of people voting twice, dead people voting and illegal immigrants voting during the election. Paul also noted in several state’s voting laws were unconstitutionally changed by secretary of states.

He contended courts did not actually consider evidence of voter fraud in dismissing several cases filed by the Trump campaign and allies. Paul added he will be working to address alleged irregularities over the next two years.

“In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on them and no address. Historically those were thrown out, this time they weren’t,” Paul stated. “They made special accommodations because they said, ‘it’s a pandemic and people forgot what their address was,’ so they changed the law after the fact. That is wrong, that’s unconstitutional and I plan on spending the next two years going around state to state and fixing these problems.”

Paul stressed alleged irregularities need to be investigated in order to increase confidence in our elections

A joint agency investigation led to the rescue of 33 missing children in Los Angeles, California. The FBI announced the rescue on Friday as part of a multi-organizational human trafficking investigation dubbed “Lost Angels.”

Authorities said at least eight of the children had been sexually exploited. Agents explained that more often than not, victims are forced to perform these acts by someone they know.

“Sometimes people they know, sometimes people in their circle of friends or family, sometimes it’s actually a love interest that appears to be a love interest and they think they have a relationship with this person,” Kristi Johnson, assistant director in charge at the FBI, said.

According to authorities, the amount of human trafficking has increased significantly in recent years. The FBI has opened over 600 investigations and arrested nearly 500 people in 2020 alone.

So far, the “Lost Angels” investigation has led to the arrest of one suspect.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) called out the Chinese Communist Party over their alleged attempt to blackmail the Biden administration. On the Senate floor Friday, Cotton urged Joe Biden to take action against our most persistent adversary.

This came after China issued a slew of sanctions against nearly 30 Trump administration officials, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Cotton noted the sanctions were put in place just moments after Biden took office.

“They’re not bluster. They are another step in China’s long-term campaign to coerce Americans at every level of government and business,” Cotton stated. “They are a direct attack on the independence of U.S. policy toward China and an attempt to blackmail the Biden administration with personal financial ruin in the future if they dare to stand up to the Chinese Communist Party.”

Cotton called on Biden to denounce the “acts of intimidation” and treat them as a day-one assault. He urged the administration to issue sanctions against Chinese officials who are responsible for the blackmail efforts.

However, many Republicans have speculated Biden will likely be soft on China, and Beijing even reportedly wanted him to win the 2020 election.

Several GOP lawmakers urge the Biden administration to hold China accountable for covering-up the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Friday, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) announced they will re-introduce a bill to launch an international investigation.

The probe will focus on the Chinese Communist Party’s role in covering up the pandemic and it will be spearheaded by American health experts.

Hawley believes the WHO is a pawn for the Chinese Communist Party, rendering them incompetent to conduct an effective investigation. This is a sentiment shared by the Trump administration, which prompted their withdrawal from the WHO.

“China and the World Health Organization did not play straight with the American people,” Vice President Mike Pence stated. “They did not let our personnel into China to get information on the coronavirus until the middle of February. Fortunately, President Trump, in dealing with China from the outset of this administration, standing up to China that had been taking advantage of America for decades in the wake of Joe Biden’s cheerleading for China.”

Stefanik stressed it’s imperative for America to take the lead and find out why the WHO promoted Chinese misinformation. She highlighted the pandemic’s devastating human toll by citing the more than 400,000 American lives lost.

Stefanik demands that the Biden administration fight for American interests as well as stand up to the WHO and China. Additionally, she condemned Biden’s early action to rejoin the WHO before pushing for reforms fought for by President Trump.

“The Chinese government and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human to human transmission,” President Trump said. “Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease.”

In the meantime, both lawmakers will bring forward a resolution originally brought to the Senate back in March 2020. Hawley and Stefanik urge the international community to find a way for China to compensate all affected nations.
