Firefighters had to wade through 3 inches of melted butter to fight a fire at a dairy factory. The butter coated the hoses so that the firefighters couldn’t hold on to it. Thankfully no one was hurt and there were enough emergency responders to put out the fire. They weren’t *spread too thin*. Get it
Protests and chaos are dominating the news in the U.S.
In New York City, anti-Israel protestors blocked traffic. This video is trending of a New York City driver pushing protestors out of his way in utter frustration because we all kind of feel him, right? He gets angry but he keeps a relatively cool head.
The New York Post reports that the protests are linked to leftist radicals such as the “Democratic Socialists of America whose members include squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.” Hollywood actress Susan Sarandon also showed up to protest her tax dollars being used for war.
Protestors blocked traffic and attached their hands to cement-filled tires.
President Biden was interrupted by protestors calling for a ceasefire in Gaza during a speech in South Carolina. As reporter Max Blumenthal pointed out, “The only people under the age of 65 at this Biden rally are there to protest #GenocideJoe."
And in New York City, authorities discovered underground tunnels built into Orthodox Jewish buildings. Roughly 20,000 people reportedly live there and the tunnel system was built illegally in response to pandemic restrictions. Police forced people out and arrested at least 10 people.
Oh boy. This election year is shaping up to be a doozy, isn’t it?
The Pope spoke out against surrogacy on Monday in surprisingly strong language. Surrogacy is when a woman carries and births a child in her womb for other people to raise.
“I consider despicable the practice of so-called surrogate motherhood, which represents a grave violation of the dignity of the woman and the child, based on the exploitation of situations of the mother’s material needs,” he said in a foreign policy address to global ambassadors. He later referred to the practice as the “commercialization” of pregnancy. He called for a global ban on surrogacy “to prohibit this practice universally.”
Surrogacy is increasingly common due to many factors including increased levels of global infertility, increased numbers of same-sex couples, and an increase in wombs for rent in Ukraine, which we’ve covered on Redacted.

Fauci Doesn't Recall

Dr. Anthony Fauci remembers very little about the pandemic. He testified in a closed-door session with Congress on Monday and reportedly answered “I don’t recall” or “I don’t remember” over 100 times.
Fauci was testified to the U.S. House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. He was accompanied by two personal lawyers and two government (taxpayer funded) lawyers. He was asked about mask mandates, lockdowns and pre-pandemic research that may have led to the creation of the Covid-19 virus.
“I think what I’m most surprised about is how much he doesn’t recall considering the severity of this event for the world, and that he was the face of the government’s response to COVID,” Dr. Brad Wenstrup, the chair of the committee said after the hearing.
Funny because the rest of us recall a lot about the pandemic, right?
Dr. Fauci’s testimony will continue today in private but he will reportedly testify again publicly at a future date.
Tiger Woods is trending because he confirmed that he has ended his 27-year sponsorship deal with Nike.
Jimmy Kimmel is trending for an online fight with Aaron Rodgers after Rodgers indicated that Kimmel may have been associated with Jeffrey Epstein. Kimmel responded on his show and accused Rodgers of being dumb for only having gone to community college. It rings a bit elitist, would you agree?
130 feet. That is how far down a man in Brazil dug in his own home thinking he was going to find gold. He died by falling in that hole before he could find any treasure.
$1.4 billion. That is how much the Barbie movie made last year at the box office. Yesterday we mistakenly wrote that it made $1.4 million. Oops! Thank you to our eagle-eyed readers for pointing that out.
Given that, can the state afford to hand out cross sex hormones and pay for sex change surgeries for undocumented immigrants? Well, they’re going to according to the state’s guide on “Transgender and Gender Diverse Services” for MediCal.
And what did the state use to determine that this is necessary? The World Professional Association for Transgender Health or WPATH’s Standards of Care, which is based on no medical research and has no minimum age requirement for any gender dysphoria treatment.
Missing from this coverage is care for de-transitioning. That is because there is also no research or standards of care for that. That refers to people who decide that they do not want to be on these heavy pharmaceuticals any longer – and research shows that a lot of them don’t. In fact, one study showed that 80% of trans patients do not keep filling their prescriptions after four years. Once they’ve exposed themselves to these harsh procedures, they’re on their own if they want off.
