Cloris Leachman, Sitcom Standout and Oscar Winner, Dies at 94

Source: Hollywood Reporter

Cloris Leachman, the Miss America contestant who won an Oscar for her work in The Last Picture Show, then collected two of her record nine Emmys for playing the quirky Phyllis Lindstrom on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, has died. She was 94.

Leachman, the bawdy Iowa native also known for her hilarious turns in the Mel Brooks-Gene Wilder classic Young Frankenstein (1974) and on the TV shows Malcolm in the Middle and Raising Hope, died of natural causes on Wednesday, according to her manager.

Leachman is perhaps best known for playing Mary Richards' delusional, self-centered landlady Phyllis on the legendary CBS sitcom and then on her own spinoff show in which her character, now a widowed single mother, moved from Minneapolis to San Francisco. The actress received Emmy nominations each year from 1972 through 1976, winning in 1974 and '75.

Phyllis has been described as "neurotic," but Leachman "didn't find any fun in that word," she once said. "I decided to be perfect. And there's nothing more boring than somebody's that's perfect. She was insufferable."

Social Media Influencer Charged with Election Interference Stemming from Voter Disinformation

Source: US Department of Justice

A Florida man was arrested this morning on charges of conspiring with others in advance of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election to use various social media platforms to disseminate misinformation designed to deprive individuals of their constitutional right to vote.

Douglass Mackey, aka Ricky Vaughn, 31, of West Palm Beach, was charged by criminal complaint in the Eastern District of New York. He was taken into custody this morning in West Palm Beach and made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart of the Southern District of Florida.

“According to the allegations in the indictment, the defendant exploited a social media platform to infringe one the of most basic and sacred rights guaranteed by the Constitution: the right to vote,” said Nicholas L. McQuaid, Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “This indictment underscores the department’s commitment to investigating and prosecuting those who would undermine citizens’ voting rights.”

“There is no place in public discourse for lies and misinformation to defraud citizens of their right to vote,” said Seth D. DuCharme, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York. “With Mackey’s arrest, we serve notice that those who would subvert the democratic process in this manner cannot rely on the cloak of Internet anonymity to evade responsibility for their crimes. They will be investigated, caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”

BREAKING: President Biden speaks to President Putin

The latest from the QANON gang...

I've been following the bouncing ball (for entertainment value) since the 20th.

After the Civil War, the United States was turned into a Corporation (owned by "them" ). which Trump dissolved so Biden isn't President of an actual Country (variant: Biden is only President in Washington, DC).


The Inauguration didn't actually happen (it was "pre-recorded" )


VP Pence and Justice Roberts are playing along with the charade


Biden isn't in the White House (it's a movie set in California)


The EOs Biden is signing are blank


"The Military" won't let Biden in the Pentagon or on Air Force One


"The Storm" which didn't happen on Jan 20 will "obviously" happen on March 3 when Trump will be inauguated as President of the "real" America (variant: the military will take over to eliminate all the illegal agencies: IRS, Federal Reserve, etc.)


Oddly, nothing about pizza.....


Boy, didn't see THAT coming.....
