On Twitter, Zignal’s analysis found that tweets amplifying conspiracy theories about the upcoming election have been reposted many thousands of times, alongside posts restating debunked claims about the 2020 election.

The alliance between big business and the Republican Party, one of the oldest in U.S. politics, is unusually frayed these days. But the shifting dynamics within the Republican Party are only half the story. The behavior of the corporate sector is changing, too – and the rise of conservative populism has accelerated this change. It once seemed like good business sense for major companies to avoid public entanglement in political conflicts. Republican politicians and conservative media figures have found a sympathetic popular audience for their attacks on “wokeness” in the executive suites.1 month ago The Portland Press Herald

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are benching starting quarterback Matt Ryan in favor of second-year quarterback Sam Ehlinger for Sunday’s game against the Washington Commanders. Ryan leads the NFL with nine interceptions and has fumbled 11 times this season. Ehlinger was a sixth-round pick in 2021, but has taken a rapid ascent to his first NFL start. There is a short inaudible exchange between the game officials and Evans, before the player turns around and is handed a slip of paper.

Advertisement“What a lot of people don’t realize,” Sununu continued, is that “only a fraction has actually been spent. And so the next time you hear Republicans claiming that today’s inflation crisis was fueled by a $5 trillion Biden program – and maybe tossing in words like “socialism” — remember Sununu’s words.1 month ago The Portland Press Herald
