1 – AOC hit with ethics complaint over Met Gala attendance
Fox News reports: The American Accountability Foundation (AAF), a conservative watchdog group, has filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., over her attendance at the lavish Met Gala in New York City Monday night.
Ocasio-Cortez sparked a social media firestorm after she wore a white dress with the slogan “tax the rich” at the star-studded event, where tickets go for at least $30,000 each.

The congresswoman responded to critics “flying off the handle” over her attendance, explaining in a tweet that “New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public. I was one of several in attendance in this evening.”
A spokesperson for the Met said Ocasio-Cortez was a “guest of the museum.”
And before haters get wild flying off the handle, New York elected officials are routinely invited to and attend the Met due to our responsibilities in overseeing and supporting the city’s cultural institutions for the public. I was one of several in attendance in this evening.🤗

“We filed a formal complaint against AOC for her blatant ethics violations at the NYC Met Gala,” announced the AAF. “Her $35,000 ticket and custom designer gown fail to meet any definition of “official duties,” and warrant a full investigation into her attendance.”

The New York Post confirmed: Self-proclaimed “socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was personally invited by the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Monday night’s gala — and didn’t have to fork over $35,000 for her ticket like so many others she mingled with at the lavish bash, sources confirmed to The Post.
The 1-percent bashing congresswoman – known as AOC – was joined by her longtime boyfriend, web developer Riley Roberts, whose ticket for the fashionable affair was also comped, it was confirmed.
Lynn Patton, a former HUD official under the Trump administration and long-time Trump associate, tweeted an edited photo of AOC’s dress.
“Fixed it!” she wrote. The wording is changed to read, “Trump won!”

2 – B2 stealth bomber worth $2BN crash lands on runway at Missouri air base after suffering in-flight malfunction
Daily Mail reports: A B2 Spirit stealth bomber, one of the most deadly weapons in the United States’ military arsenal and worth $2billion, was damaged after an emergency landing at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri today.
Nobody was injured and there was no fire once the bomber landed.
The incident involving the B2 happened around 12.30am and unfolded in a temporary flight restriction six miles in all directions and 8,000ft from the ground up. Only 21 B2 bombers have ever been manufactured, and there are only 20 remaining after one crashed in Guam in 2008.
‘A U.S. Air Force B-2 Spirit experienced and [sic] in-flight malfunction during a routine training mission and was damaged on the runway at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, after an emergency landing,’ said Air Force Global Strike Command to The Drive.
The B2 is manufactured with materials that could become highly toxic if exposed to an accident, the outlet reported.
FULL STORY: @KMBC 9 Investigates has confirmed a U.S. Air Force B-2 Spirit stealth bomber sustained damage on a runway at Whiteman AFB in Knob Noster, Mo. after an emergency landing early Tuesday morning. No injuries or fire, a spokeswoman confirmed.https://t.co/mVXmwySifw

3 – Fauci: May Take ‘Many, Many’ More Vaccine Mandates to Get Pandemic Under Control
Breitbart reports: Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Biden’s White House medical adviser who said last year that “you cannot force someone to take a vaccine,” reportedly said it may take “many many” more vaccine mandates to get the Chinese coronavirus pandemic under control.
During an interview at the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) convention on Sunday, Fauci said “you’ve got to go to the alternatives” if people are not voluntarily getting the jab.
“I believe that’s going to turn this around because I don’t think people are going to want to not go to work or not go to college … They’re going to do it,” Fauci told CNN’s Jen Christensen.
“You’d like to have them do it on a totally voluntary basis, but if that doesn’t work, you’ve got to go to the alternatives,” he continued.
“The other way to do it is to have MANY MANY more mandates..

DML: Of course, you already KNEW this was his plan, right? Fauci also just recently admitted that a vaccine mandate is being “considered” in order to travel within the United States.
Fauci just said requiring proof of vaccination to travel around the US is being “seriously considered:”
“It is on the table for discussion— it has not been decided yet.”
