Utah nears new teen treatment rules Paris Hilton supported

Legislation seeking to regulate Utah s troubled teen industry has gained final approval in the House and is headed to the governor for consideration, weeks after Paris Hilton gave emotional testimony in support of the bill. The proposal would require more government oversight of youth residential treatment centers and documentation for when they use restraints. It would also prohibit treatment centers from using sedation or mechanical restraints without prior authorization. The bill passed the state House on Tuesday. Hilton testified last month in support of the legislation and spoke about abuse she says she suffered at Provo Canyon School for 11 months at age 17. Hilton says she was abused mentally and physically, recalling that staff members would beat her,

Ex–White House Doctor Ronny Jackson Denies ‘Political Hit Job’ On-Duty Intoxication Accusation

Former White House physician Ronny Jackson denied allegations published Wednesday in a government watchdog report that accused him of being inebriated while on presidential trips and also said he bullied subordinates. Jackson, now a congressman representing Texas’ 13th District, worked in the White House Medical Unit (WHMU) during the administrations of former Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He became the physician to the president during Obama’s time in office, and Trump later appointed him to become the chief medical adviser. The Department of Defense’s Office of Inspector General began investigating Jackson after Trump nominated him to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs in the spring of 2018, a nomination Jackson later withdrew.

In a statement Wednesday, the charity noted that New Democrat MP Charlie Angus has requested that the RCMP and the Canada Revenue Agency investigate WE’s operations.

Two true-crime series, one bizarre and the other kooky

Murder Among the Mormons on Netflix hooks you from the get-go. Courtesy of Netflix Right now, like many of you, I’m not drawn to the true-crime saga about some horrible serial killer. But the true-crime genre expands and expands and, yes, I’ll look at good stranger-than-fiction stories. Today let’s talk about two new entries in that arena. One’s really about a bizarre scandal that evolved into a series of bombings that left two people dead and another person seriously injured. The other, a Canadian production that’s going to a U.S. streaming service, takes a jocular approach while staying inside the true-crime mystery framework. Murder Among the Mormons (new on Netflix) hooks you from the get-go. We meet an older man,

Biden says Texas and Mississippi cancelling mask mandates is “Neanderthal thinking”

Remove Ads President Joe Biden has responded to Texas and Mississippi’s removal of mask mandates and opening up businesses, calling it a “big mistake,” and referring to the moves as “Neanderthal thinking.”  “I think it’s a big mistake,” said Biden in an interview on Wednesday. “Look, I hope everybody’s realized by now these masks make a difference. We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way in which we’re able to get vaccines in people’s arms. We’ve been able to move that all the way up to the end of May to have enough for every American, to get every adult American to get a shot.” “The last thing,

Washington’s Supreme Court Decriminalizes Drug Possession

Washington’s Supreme Court struck down a strict liability drug law in the state that had made possession of a controlled substance a felony even if the person didn’t know they had the drug in their possession. This unexpected judicially ordered decriminalization of drugs in Washington has state lawmakers in Olympia scrambling to put together some kind of legislative fix, which could take the form of a recriminalization or a legislatively ordered formal decriminalization of drug possession. Those accused of drug possession under the state law are being released from jails across the state and arrest warrants are being rescinded. The Feb. 25 decision in State of Washington v. Blake by the Supreme Court of the State of Washington is also

‘Fake news’: Adviser to Trump denies report he is considering 2024 run without Pence

A senior adviser branded reporting that former President Donald Trump is discussing a 2024 presidential bid without former Vice President Mike Pence as “fake news.” Trump has been talking to advisers about the possibility of picking a running mate other than Pence if he decides to run for president again, Bloomberg reported[1], citing two people requesting anonymity. Trump adviser Jason Miller pushed back on the reporting minutes after it was published. “This is fake news. No such conversations are happening,” Miller, who was a senior adviser to the president’s reelection campaign, tweeted[2] in response to the article. The former president’s advisers reportedly discussed the possibility of tagging a black or female running mate, with some suggesting South Dakota Gov. Kristi
