    Porsche unveils new electric Taycan under $100,000

    Make way for the Porsche Taycan, the latest version of the German automaker's first electric sports car. 

    Announced this week, the "standard" Taycan comes with the simple name "Taycan" as opposed to the 4S or the Turbo S. It will come out later this year in the U.S. as the most basic option of the electric Taycan lineup. It will also be the cheapest mode, starting at $79,900. That's finally close to the Tesla Model S, which starts at around $70,000.

    Previously the Taycan 4S was the "budget" Taycan  with a starting price of more than $103,000. The ‎Taycan Turbo and ‎Turbo S cost $150,000 and $185,000 respectively. Read more...

  2. Antifa.com now redirects to the White House’s website. This doesn’t mean anything.

    Antifa.com now redirects to the White House’s website. This doesn’t mean anything.

    Hours after Joe Biden’s inauguration, conservative personalities are rehashing an old disinformation campaign surrounding the antifa.com website.

    If you go to antifa.com right now, you’ll find that the URL now takes you to the White House’s official .gov website.

    Does this mean that the Biden administration owns the domain name “antifa.com?” Or is an official antifa entity showcasing their support for the new Democratic administration? No.

    It doesn't likely mean anything, since anyone who owns any domain name can redirect it to any website. A domain name owner does not need any sort of affiliation, connection, or permission from a website owner to do so. Read more...

  3. Biden swore to tell us the truth. We need to be able to believe it.

    Biden swore to tell us the truth. We need to be able to believe it.

    Im his inaugural address, President Joe Biden promised to be honest with the American people.

    "There is truth and there are lies, lies told for power and for profit," he said, later adding, "I give you my word, I will always level with you."

    After four years of lies big and small, restoring trust is critical to helping America recover from the destabilizing onslaught of "alternative facts," conspiracy theories, and falsehoods.

    The "big lie," as Yale historian Timothy Snyder recently described it in an essay for The New York Times, is Donald Trump's insistence that he won the 2020 election when, in fact, his lawyers lost dozens of cases seeking to overturn the results and could never provide credible proof of widespread voter fraud. Still, 70 percent of Republicans said they do not believe President Biden was legitimately elected, according to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll.  Read more...

  4. QAnon is melting down after Joe Biden's inauguration

    QAnon is melting down after Joe Biden's inauguration

    Believers in the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy have waited years for the storm to come.

    But on Jan. 20, 2021, as Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States, many of these conspiratorial Trump supporters were finally met with a dose of reality: Perhaps, the storm wasn’t going to come after all.

    “Well, I’m the official laughing stock of my family now,” read a comment from one true believer in a QAnon chat.

    Since 2017, QAnon believers have followed the vague online posts of an anonymous internet user called Q. They've waited for their hero, now-former President Trump, to begin mass arresting his political enemies — also known as “The Storm.”  Read more...
