Copy of Kamala Harris' Book Spotted at California Facility for Migrant Children
CORRECTION, April 27, 2021: This post, and its headline, originally claimed that multiple copies of Harris' book were being given out to children at the facility as part of "welcome packets" for new arrivals. In fact, just one copy of the book was spotted, and the Biden administration appears to have played little to no role in its presence. We apologize to our readers, and to Vice President Harris, for the error.

UPDATE, April 27, 2021: This article, and its headline, have been updated to clarify that the specific changes to Americans' lives noted in the story have not been proposed by President Biden. Rather, they simply represent possible ways that the emissions goals floated by Biden could be reached.

Omar Says She Secured Exemption from Curfew So Muslims Could Observe Ramadan
CORRECTION, April 15, 2021: This post, and its headlines, originally implied that Rep. Omar had secured special treatment for Muslims so that they could freely travel to and from Ramadan services during the curfew. In fact, Minnesota Democratic Gov. Tim Walz's executive order actually exempted all "Individuals traveling directly to and from ... religious services," not just Muslims. Omar, at least on Twitter, did not mention followers of other religions -- suggesting that she wanted Muslims to receive special treatment.  However, Muslims were not, in fact, given special treatment when compared to followers of other religions. We apologize to our readers for the error, and have updated both our article and its headlines.

[RETRACTED] Daunte Wright Had an Arrest Warrant for Allegedly Choking and Holding a Woman at Gunpoint: Court Docs
Retraction, April 16, 2021: This article misstated the charges against Daunte Wright, who was wanted at the time of his death on an active warrant not for aggravated robbery, but for a "gross misdemeanor weapons charge," according to a statement from the Washington County Attorney's Office cited by Lead Stories. There had been a previous active warrant for the felony charges, but Wright appeared (via Zoom) in court for that case in January and was scheduled to be tried on those charges in August. Because of the confusion between the two warrants would require extensive re-writing of the article, The Western Journal chose to retract it in its entirety.
