spread across its platform.On Friday, Biden was asked, “On the topic of disinformation, what’s your message to platforms like Facebook?” He responded, “They’re killing people. Look, the only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated, and they’re killing people.”
Biden said on Monday that he was reacting to a report that 60% of the misinformation about the vaccine on Facebook came from 12 individuals.“Facebook isn’t killing people,” Biden said. “These 12 people are out there giving misinformation. Anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it. It’s killing people. It’s bad infiomation. My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally that somehow I am saying that Facebook is killing people, that they would do something about the misinformation. … That’s what I meant.”

Just a play to silence the people that disagree with their agenda. They can't prove a correlation and in fact know most people simply don't care Facebook needs to own its mistakes. If they don’t, then they’re admitting that misinformation is an inherent part of their platform. The same goes for Twitter.

Biden promises to appeal immigration ruling, urges Congress to actWASHINGTON (Reuters) -President Joe Biden on Saturday vowed to preserve a program that protects from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the United States as children, promising to appeal a judge's 'deeply disappointing' ruling invalidating it and urging Congress to provide them a path to citizenship. U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen on Friday ruled in favor of a group of states led by Republican-governed Texas that sued to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Hanen concluded that Democratic former President Barack Obama exceeded his powers when he created DACA in 2012 by executive action, bypassing Congress. Why doesn't Joe just sign an order saying that anybody from any country can enter the United States at any time with as many relatives as they want because he's printing money by the carload to take care of everything appeal all u want.....your predecessors ruling was illegal and you know it....I'm surprised it took this long for a fed court to strike it down. I was deeply disappointed in that.
Biden becomes a divisive figure in N. Ireland as post-Brexit tensions simmerPresident Biden becomes a divisive figure in Northern Ireland for his pride in his Irish-Catholic ancestry as post-Brexit tensions simmer. Sadly this is as result of Boris Johnson's implementation of brexit, the ambiguity over the border is gone because my government wanted trade barriers with the EU, so you either have a border between the UK and NI or the Ireland and the UK. One Community loses out somehow. He’s apparently divisive around the world. Not nearly as divisive as Johnson, who is trying to duck out of an agreement he signed last year or the gangster Loyalist paramilitaries who set massive fires near Nationalist areas.
