Kyle Rittenhouse responds to President Biden implying he’s a white supremacist: ‘It’s actual malice’
Kyle Rittenhouse appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Monday, where he gave his first televised interview since being acquitted on all charges stemming from shooting three protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in 2020. The incident occurred shortly after the police shooting of Black motorist Jacob Blake, when Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, fatally shot protesters Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, as well as wounding Gaige Grosskreutz. Since then, Rittenhouse has become a polarizing figure in the both social and political realms. “This wasn’t a political case,” Rittenhouse said. “It shouldn’t have been a political case. It was made a political case. This had nothing to do with race. And the ways people are twisting this, it’s just sickening.” During his campaign, Biden tweeted about then-president Trump not disavowing white supremacists and shared a video which featured Rittenhouse. Tucker Carlson asked him, “What did you make of the president of the United States calling you a white supremacist?” Rittenhouse replied, “Mr. President, if I would say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial, and understand the facts before you make a statement.” Carlson followed up with the question, “That’s not a small thing to be called that?” Rittenhouse replied,“No, it’s actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.” Rittenhouse’s attorney Mark Richards has blasted left leaning news sites like CNN and MSNBC as well conservative politicians looking to profit off his client. And several legal analysts think Rittenhouse has grounds for a potential defamation suit against President Biden. Carlson asked if he plans to “hold some of these liars to account.” “I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now,” Rittenhouse said. “So I’m hoping one day there will be some — there will be accountability for their actions that they did.”
Congress demands govt reveal ‘true’ Covid death figures, wants Rs 4 lakh each for victims’ kin
New Delhi: The Congress on Sunday said credible and true figures of COVID-19 deaths in the country should come out and it will strive to get a compensation of Rs 4 lakh each to the families of those who died of the viral disease.
As part of the party’s campaign for exerting pressure on the Centre to grant compensation to the victims of the coronavirus, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi put out a video of the families that suffered during the second wave of the pandemic.
Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said the Congress would raise the issue in both houses of Parliament and seek the grant of a compensation of Rs 4 lakh to all such families from the government.
Gandhi shared a 4.31-minute video on Twitter in which families that lost their dear ones due to Covid in Gujarat alleged that they did not receive any government help at the time.
He also attacked the “Gujarat model”, which the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has projected as the best in the country.
“The stories of the families of those who died due to Covid are true, their pain and suffering are also true. The government statistics are false. True figures will have to be reported and a compensation of Rs 4 lakh will have to be given,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi, using the hashtag “4LakhDenaHoga”.
He also said in the video that the Gujarat model is discussed a lot, “but the families whom we talked to said they neither got hospital beds, nor oxygen or ventilator”.
The Gujarat government says officially, only 10,000 people died due to Covid, but the truth is that over three lakh people have died of the viral disease in the state, the former Congress chief claimed.
“We want that the truth about Covid deaths should come out and those whose kin died due to Covid should get adequate compensation,” he said.
Gandhi said the government’s job is to help people. When the government was to offer help to them when they were in hospital, it did not do so and now, when they have spent so much on hospital treatment, it is not even coming forward to offer them compensation, he said.
“What kind of a government is this?” the Congress leader asked.
“We wanted to be with you in your time of need and wanted to assure you that we are with you and there is no need to worry,” Gandhi was heard telling one of the victims in the video.
“Lakhs of people have lost their father, mother, brothers and sisters. They will not come back. But remember that the Congress will use all its might to get them a compensation of Rs 4 lakh,” he said.
Kharge said in both houses of Parliament, the opposition party would seek that the government grants compensation to the families of those who died of Covid.
“We will raise the issue in Parliament and seek the cooperation of all. The poor should get Rs 4 lakh each as they were devastated by Covid and their earning members were lost. They lost their kin and their incomes due to the government’s negligence,” he told PTI.
“According to estimates, at least 50 lakh people have died in the country due to Covid. In Gujarat alone, while official figures say only 10,000 people died, around 3 to 3.5 lakh people have lost their lives,” Kharge said.
Pitching for a re-survey and a correction in the statistics, he said, “The families of the victims should also be compensated.”
Kharge said the government has to rehabilitate such families by paying them a compensation of Rs 4 lakh, a campaign for which has been launched by Gandhi.
The leader of opposition in the Rajya Sabha said the surveys conducted by several foreign agencies have pointed to a lower number of deaths being recorded in the country.

Bihar CM asks health officials to be on guard against new Covid variant
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday asked health officials of the state to remain vigilant in the wake of reports of a new coronavirus variant triggering fear across the world which is still recovering from the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kumar shared his thoughts on Omicron, the new variant, at a meeting where he reviewed the health department’s functioning.
He called for keeping a close watch on those coming to the state from abroad and quick testing of samples if anybody presented symptoms.
Cases of the new coronavirus variant have been reported mainly from South Africa, besides European countries like the United Kingdom and Belgium.
The chief minister also underscored that the threat of COVID-19, which has caused large-scale devastation in the country, including Bihar, was far from over and stressed on the need for inoculation of citizens.
According to the state health department, more than eight crore people have got the COVID vaccine jabs in Bihar which has a total population of about 13 crore.
The chief minister directed the officials to ensure that those who had got only one shot should be fully vaccinated as soon as they were deemed fit for the second jab.
The meeting was attended, among others, by health minister Mangal Pandey, chief secretary Tripurari Sharan and additional chief secretary (health) Pratyay Amrit.

The Plot In You Announce Debut New Zealand Shows w/ ERRA
Ohio’s The Plot In You are heading our way in spring 2022 for two massive North Island shows. Now based in Miami, the four piece are basking in the alt-rock / hardcore glow of their fifth studio album Swan Song, which dropped in September this year to glowing reviews, and was written as an exercise in catharsis after “years of negativity, soured friendships, disappointment, and mistakes”. With a mammoth stint of worldwide touring already well underway, The Plot In You will be a well oiled machine when they hit our shores for the first time next September, joined by fellow US metalcore fiends ERRA at both their Tāmaki Makaurau and Pōneke shows.

From new album Swan Song, watch The Plot In You’s cinematic clip for ‘Face Me’…
Ohio quartet THE PLOT IN YOU announce the Swan Song Australian and New Zealand tour which will hit all capital cities in September 2022. Their debut national headline tour will be joined by five-piece progressive metalcore heavyweights and very special guests, ERRA.
After racking up over 100 million streams and receiving praise from Billboard, Rock Sound, Alternative Press, and more, THE PLOT IN YOU have crafted music that addresses the end of various things and situations in life.
In September, THE PLOT IN YOU released their fifth full-length album, Swan Song. Sonically and spiritually, Swan Song stares down at years of negativity, soured friendships, disappointment, and mistakes and flush it all away in the wake of hammering distortion, towering melodies, cinematic production, and unapologetically cathartic lyrics.
The record received glowing reviews globally. With Hysteria Magazine saying, “In a triumphant fashion, Swan Song may well be the group’s most audacious; genre bending and diverse album to date.” And Wall Of Sound said, “If Swan Song was indeed The Plot In You’s final album, then it would see the four-piece bowing out on a high, at both their popular and creative peak.”
THE PLOT IN YOU’s last visit to our shows saw them supporting Polaris in 2018 for the sold out national ‘The Mortal Coil Tour’ and had critics raving about their flawless live show.
Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, ERRA’s namesake comes from Akkadian mythology and represents mayhem. Their technical sound and writing is taken by influences from well-respected groups like Misery Signals, Born of Osiris and Saosin. They thrive on being creative and showcasing their talent through their intense live performances and offering their refreshing sound. Their 2020 self-titled album saw them receiving high praise from fans and music critics alike.
The Swan Song tour is one tour you won’t want to miss as it graces Australian shores in September. Grab a ticket while you can!
