Image
Boris Johnson has clashed with Britain’s most senior mandarin after insisting on making top secret policy decisions on WhatsApp. Cabinet Secretary Simon Case intervened after concern that some texts from the Prime Minister’s official account on the messaging service appeared to have been sent by someone other than him. In a separate development, Mr Johnson’s partner Carrie Symonds is understood to have been overheard ‘prompting’ him in the background during confidential phone calls to ministers and officials.

Trump 'wants to end birthright citizenship before he leaves office': President could strip immigration rights from US-born babies as administration pushes bold policies in his final weeks

Image
President Trump is considering signing an executive order ending birthright citizenship before he leaves the Oval Office, The Hill reports.  On Friday, various sources told the website that members of the Trump Administration have been discussing the issue with increasing frequency. They are hoping to push the President into taking action before Joe Biden is sworn in on  January 20.   Under current law, all babies born in United States are automatically granted citizenship, regardless of whether or not their parents are American. An executive order signed by President Trump would likely put an end to such legal protections.    The Trump Administrations declined to comment specifically on the issue when approached by The Hill.   Instead, White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere issued a statement saying: 'Since taking office, President Trump has never shied away from using his lawful executive authority to advance bold policies and fulfill the promises he made to the American p

Tucker Carlson on Friday once again challenged Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell to produce evidence proving her allegation that millions of votes cast in favor of the president were fraudulently switched. The Fox News host responded to Powell, who earlier on Friday accused Carlson of being ‘very insulting, demanding, and rude.’ 'We've heard from a lot of people about that segment, including people in the White House and people close to the president,' Carlson said on Friday, referencing his remarks on Thursday about Powell. 'Like us, they have concluded this election was not fair. Like us, they are willing to believe any explanation for what happened,' Carlson said.

'It was not our intention to install Christmas lights that remind people of a penis': Mayor apologises for Belgian town’s phallic Christmas decorations

Image
A Belgian mayor has admitted to local residents that he did not intentionally set out to make this year's Christmas decorations appear quite so phallic. The new Christmas lights, made using the colours of the city, were recently installed in the municipality of Oudenburg in the Belgian province of West Flanders and several local boroughs.  Officials were originally thinking of candles, but then decided a flame at the top of the white column was a cliché and so they put in a blue ball instead. However, it was not long before residents realised the new festive decor looked more like male genitalia than anything to do with Christmas.

Meanwhile, supporters of President Trump gathered on the steps of the State Capitol building in Atlanta and staged a 'stop the steal' rally for the third straight day. Addressing the rallygoers was longtime Trump supporter and InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.  The Floyd County board met for about an hour on Thursday in a special session that ended with a vote to terminate Brady, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. Brady was fired after receiving at least two r
