Swing State Trumpers Forged Letters to National Archives in Harebrained Scheme to Overturn Election

rollingstone.com – By Peter Wade – Pro-Trump groups in Arizona and Michigan attempted to fool the National Archives by sending forged certificates of ascertainment declaring Trump the recipient of the state’s 2020 electors. The Jan. 6 committee now has those fake certificates, thanks to the secretaries of State for both swing states, Politico reported on Monday.

The National Archives shared the forged documents with state officials, informing them it would not accept the fakes. Representatives for the officials declined to comment on the documents to Politico, but they confirmed that Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and their staff met with the Jan. 6 committee this past November.

Queen Elizabeth ‘is so frugal, she saves rubber bands’ & has a giant ball of them

celebitchy.com – By Kaiser – I have long been a fan of Us Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About” feature, usually when it’s a celebrity sitting down and making up some crazy listicle of genuinely bonkers factoids about themselves. I would love to read Queen Elizabeth’s list, if she actually wanted to make one. Instead, Us Weekly just made their list based off of biographies of the Queen and interviews from her ex-staffers, one would assume.

Minister of Disarmament and Arms Control Phil Twyford announced today that New Zealand will push for new international laws to ban and regulate their use.

Woman uses her prosthetic leg in fight at Golden Knights game

nypost.com – By
Andrew Crane – A fan during the Vegas Golden Knights’ game against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday added a completely new twist to the sporting event brawl: taking off her prosthetic leg and using it to hit someone. In a video posted to Twitter, the woman — as well as others around her, including one fan in Marc-André Fleury jersey — had turned to the row behind her to engage fans in a scuffle. The woman then reached toward her left knee, ripped off the prosthetic leg and appeared to swing it toward the other fans.
