BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
An Alabama funeral service ended in a shooting that left one man dead and three more people injured, authorities say. The incident occurred just before James Gipson’s casket was set down in the graveyard. Gipson had recently lost his life to cancer, and was surrounded by loved ones when the violence erupted.
They were paying tribute to Gipson when a car blasting music entered the cemetery.
“They were asked to turn the music down,” said one family member. “Basically, it instigated from there. A lot of cussing and profanity that went on.”
Shots were then fired, killing Jerry Lee Gipson and injuring others.
Authorities are looking for a 40-year-old man who was apparently involved in the shooting.

And his No. 1 stock picks across his various research services have been phenomenal.

In June 2018, he recommended Tandem Diabetes. It’s currently up 520% and still climbing.
In December 2019, he recommended Enphase Energy. It gained 638% in 1 year.
And in March of last year, he recommended Carvana. It’s currently up 877%and still climbing.
But Paul believes his No. 1 stock pick for 2021 could go even higher.

TIRED OF OFFICE POLITICS?
New reports suggest that things aren’t so rosy with Vice President Kamala Harris and her staff.
Harris is already under fire for her handling of the US border crisis, and now more scrutiny is coming from her own team. According to the reports, staffers are dealing with low morale and a tense working environment.
Many of the problems are said to stem from communication issues and distrust among top aides and senior officials on Harris’ team. Unnamed staffers have been especially critical of Harris’ chief of staff Tina Flournoy, saying she has contributed to a working environment “where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out.”
What else is going on with Harris’ team? And are any of the problems stemming from Harris?
