Capitol Police HQ

U.S. Capitol Police arrested a woman on Wednesday who drove to the agency’s headquarters in an SUV containing several firearms and said she wanted to speak with officers about the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

The woman, identified as Kery Lynn McAttee, 58, told officers she had driven down from Michigan and claimed to have information about the event.

She had parked in a no-parking zone in front of the building, which sits less than half a mile from Capitol Hill, at about 1:40 p.m.

During their conversation, a Capitol police officer noticed the butt of a long gun in the back of McAttee’s Chevy Silverado, the agency said. McAttee subsequently confirmed that she had weapons with her.

A winter storm began to dump snow across the upper Midwest on Friday as it made its way toward the South and eventually the East Coast, promising weekend weather havoc for millions of people.

As of Friday morning, more than 50 million Americans were under some level of winter weather alert, according to the National Weather Service. The alerts stretched from North Dakota to as far south as Georgia, then up into the Northeast in Pennsylvania.

Major travel disruptions are expected with the storm throughout the Martin Luther King Jr., holiday weekend, AccuWeather said.

The storm is known as a "Saskatchewan screamer," AccuWeather said, as it originated in that Canadian province. Meanwhile, the Weather Channel has named it "Winter Storm Izzy."

Clyde Bellecourt dies at 85

Clyde Bellecourt, one of the most significant Native American leaders in the struggle for civil rights, died in Minneapolis on Tuesday night, his son Wolf confirmed to Minnesota Public Radio.

Bellecourt was 85 and had been battling prostate cancer.

Bellecourt, who was born and grew up on the White Earth Indian Reservation, co-founded the American Indian Movement in 1968. It began as a local organization in Minneapolis and over decades has expanded to advocate for Native civil rights across the United States and Canada and around the world. AIM says that today, it represents over 375 million Indigenous people worldwide.

"At the heart, AIM is deeply rooted in spirituality, and a belief in the connectedness of all indigenous peoples," Bellecourt wrote in a letter for the organization.


US Embassy in Baghdad says it was attacked

US Embassy in IraqThe U.S. Embassy in Baghdad said Thursday that it was attacked by terrorist groups, the latest amid a series of attacks targeting U.S. personnel in Iraq and Syria.

“The U.S. Embassy compound was attacked this evening by terrorist groups attempting to undermine Iraq’s security, sovereignty and international relations,” the embassy said on Twitter. “We have long said that these sorts of reprehensible attacks are an assault not just on diplomatic facilities, but on the sovereignty of Iraq itself.”

The statement didn’t provide further details on what transpired.

The Associated Press, citing Iraqi security officials, reported that at least four rockets targeted the embassy’s Green Zone and that three of the rockets struck within the perimeter of the embassy. The fourth hit a school in a nearby residential area.



Judge rules absentee ballot drop boxes cannot be used in Wisconsin

Drop boxes banned in WisconsinAbsentee ballot drop boxes can no longer be used in Wisconsin, a judge ruled on Thursday as the state prepares for spring and fall elections.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren said that absentee ballots could not be returned through drop boxes, saying “there's no authority to do it,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. However, Bohren said that state law does allow for absentee ballots to be mailed back or handed in in-person.

That ruling follows a lawsuit that was filed by the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) on behalf of two individuals in June. The lawsuit said that the Wisconsin Elections Commission had incorrectly interpreted election statues as to allow for drop boxes to be used for absentee ballots, saying that “only legally cast votes should count and counting illegally cast votes diminishes the value of those cast legally.”


Nearly quarter of world’s population had record hot year in 2021, data shows

Quarter of world's population had record hot weather in 2021Nearly a quarter of the world’s population experienced a record hot year in 2021, as the climate crisis continues to unleash escalating temperatures around the globe, according to new data from leading US climate scientists.

Last year was the sixth hottest ever recorded, with the global temperature 1.1C above the pre-industrial average, a new annual analysis from Nasa and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) found.

“Science leaves no room for doubt: climate change is the existential threat of our time,” said Bill Nelson, administrator of Nasa. Nelson said that eight out of the top 10 hottest years have occurred in the past decade, which “underscores the need for bold action to safeguard the future of our country – and all of humanity”.



Illinois judge sparks outrage by reversing 18-year-old’s rape conviction

Illinois judge reverses rape conviction

A judge in western Illinois who found an 18-year-old man guilty of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl has come under fire after he later threw out the conviction, saying the 148 days the man spent in jail was punishment enough.

Judge Robert Adrian of Adam county, Illinois, said Drew Clinton, who was convicted last October for raping a 16-year-old girl at a graduation party last May, had received “plenty of punishment”.

“Mr Clinton has served almost five months in the county jail,” Adrian said on 3 January, according to court transcripts. “For what happened in this case, that is plenty of punishment. That would be a just sentence.”

Jan. 6 committee subpoenas tech giants after 'inadequate responses'

1/6 committee subpoenas tech companiess

The House committee investigating Jan. 6 subpoenaed Reddit, Twitter and the parent companies of Google and Facebook on Thursday after their "inadequate responses" to requests for information about what the companies did and didn't do in the lead-up to the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“It’s disappointing that after months of engagement, we still do not have the documents and information necessary to answer those basic questions," Committee chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a statement. "The Select Committee is working to get answers for the American people and help ensure nothing like January 6th ever happens again. We cannot allow our important work to be delayed any further."

The panel first sought records from the four companies and others in August, asking for information related to “the spread of misinformation, efforts to overturn the 2020 election or prevent the certification of the results, domestic violent extremism, and foreign influence in the 2020 election.”
