DeSantis Announces Suspension of Prosecutor Who Refused to Enforce Certain Laws
CORRECTION, Aug. 6, 2022: The Western Journal has removed the description of Andrew Warren as "Soros-Funded" from this headline. That statement was based on an unsubstantiated claim in a tweet by Kyle Lamb, a data analyst with the Executive Office of the Governor in Florida, and therefore clearly not a disinterested source, who called Warren "Soros-backed" but made no specific claims regarding funding. Warren himself, when asked by the Tampa Bay Times about whether he had received money from Soros, was apparently unable to answer: "'We think so,' Warren said. 'We understand that he gave money to the state (Democratic) party. And the state party money ... went to support different candidates. And I have very little insight into the amount of money he gave, who it went to, etc.'" We also corrected Lamb's job description, which was erroneously given as "communications officer." Lamb is a data analyst.

11 Shootings from Last Month Have 1 Thing in Common, And Democrats Hate It
CORRECTION, Aug. 5, 2022: A sentence reading "This is why conservatives vehemently propose most gun-control policies, not because they're being paid off by the NRA and gun manufacturers, but because an armed citizenry keeps us safe" has been changed to read "This is why conservatives vehemently oppose most gun-control policies, not because they're being paid off by the NRA and gun manufacturers, but because an armed citizenry keeps us safe," which was what was originally meant but is, obviously, the opposite of what we wrote.

Biden Agrees to Prisoner Exchange: Griner and Former US Marine for Russian 'Merchant of Death'
CORRECTION, July 28, 2022: The Western Journal has changed the headline of this article to include the fact that Paul Whelan, a former U.S. Marine held by Russia since 2018 on espionage charges, is also part of the proposed trade and not only Brittney Griner. We also removed the reference to Viktor Bout as a "known Russian terrorist," an error for which we apologize; Bout was convicted on four terror-related conspiracy charges, but has not been found guilty of any actual acts of terror. We have also added a link to the original DOJ statement regarding Bout's conviction in 2011, which we originally omitted, as well as including the full text of that statement at the bottom of the article for context, and included some additional information about Whelan's history for context.

Dems' Electric Bus Dreams Go Up in Flames, Entire Fleet Taken Off Road Amid Massive Failure
UPDATE, July 29, 2022: Online insurance broker AutoInsuranceEZ.com researched auto fires by type of car using data from the National Transportation Safety Board, Bureau of Transportation Statistics and Recalls.gov and concluded "that despite the focus on EV fires in the news, they are not inherently more dangerous than gas or hybrid vehicles, although electric fires tend to be more difficult than gas fires to extinguish." Perhaps more importantly, the independent, nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Highway Loss Data Institute in a study of "electric and conventional versions of nine models from 2011 to 2019" concluded that electric vehicles may be considered significantly safer than similar conventional models because "rates of injury claims related to the drivers and passengers of electric vehicles were more than 40 percent lower than for identical conventional models over 2011-19. This result is similar to an earlier HLDI study of hybrid vehicles, and one likely explanation is that the large batteries used in both types of vehicles make them substantially heavier than their conventional counterparts. Occupants of heavier vehicles are exposed to lower forces in multivehicle crashes." The Western Journal is adding this information to this story as important context regarding the safety of electric vehicles in general.
