In a follow-up interview at police headquarters, Birch allegedly admitted again to killing Frankel, explaining that she then called 911 to report the death.

Reitz deleted his initial tweet.

Biles withdrew from multiple Olympic events this week, citing her mental health. There is no word on whether she will compete in events next week.

Price-Fixing Scandal Ensnares Embattled Meat Giant

By William Bredderman
Michael Barera/Wikimedia Commons

A suite of ex-brass from one of the nation’s top chicken processors were hit with federal indictments for engaging in anti-competitive practices on Thursday—one day after lawmakers brought heat on its parent company over consolidation in the nation’s food chain.

A grand jury in Denver charged four former top executives from Pilgrim’s Pride in an alleged price- and bid-rigging scheme that the Department of Justice asserted also involved the Illinois-based Koch Foods. Pilgrim’s Pride as a company pleaded guilty to participating in the conspiracy in February, and coughed up a $107 million fine.

Pilgrim’s Pride is majority-owned by Brazil-based JBS, the world’s biggest protein producer, which testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday on the increasingly oligopolized American meat industry. A cyber attack earlier this year obligated JBS to idle its facilities across the country, disrupting the food supply. Two top JBS shareholders, Joesley and Wesley Batista, confessed to the Securities and Exchange Commission last year that their company had acquired Pilgrim’s Pride with Brazilian government loans obtained through bribery.

Neither Pilgrim’s Pride, JBS, nor Koch Foods immediately replied to requests for comment.

Black Gay Porn Stars Tell The Truth About Creaming

By Michael Blackmon
  • While creaming can occur in straight sex, creaming in the context of gay porn is when the bottom, the performer in the receptive position, produces a translucent, sometimes white, substance from their anus, a reaction to the pleasure they’re experiencing from the top, the insertive partner.
  • “If someone is creaming, we need to really first make sure that there's not an STD, because sexually transmitted diseases can create so much mucus that it looks like someone is creaming, but they may have chlamydia or gonorrhea and not even know it,” explained Goldstein.

GOP Lawmakers Fume at Texas Dems for Appearing at Hearing Amid COVID Outbreak

By Rachel Olding
Kevin Dietsch

GOP lawmakers exploded at Texas state Democrats on Tuesday for appearing in person for a House hearing on voting rights—days after a COVID outbreak amid their ranks. More than 50 Democrats fled to D.C. on a mask-free private jet two weeks ago to thwart a voter suppression bill but at least seven later tested positive for COVID. “I am truly puzzled why you all as witnesses have chosen to be here You cut and ran to D.C. and you bought COVID with you and you infected people while you were here at the Capitol,” Rep. Scott Franklin (R-GA) fumed, adding that most lawmakers just “suck it up” when faced with a losing vote. “We don’t act like a bunch of spoiled cowards running away and refusing to vote when it’s clear we don’t have the numbers to get our way.”

In a debate over proposed voter ID rules, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) asked if Texans are required to show ID to get on a private jet. “I wouldn’t know, I’ve never flown on one,” she quipped. Franklin said that, rather than being at the hearing, the lawmakers should be “flying back to Texas in coach like the rest of us and unlike the private jet you used to get here, they’re gonna make you wear a mask.” Rep. Kweisi Mfume (D-MD) accused Franklin of defaming the Texas lawmakers with his “coward” taunt, and committee chair Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) called it intimidation and abuse.
