Nuacht Aoir has learned – exclusively – that the Administration of President Joseph Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris has developed a sophisticated plan for reelection.

This secret plan – to be implemented today, April 1, 2024 – calls for nicknames to be used when referring to the President and Vice President; for certain words to be classified as "derogatory" and for people who use those words to be called out as "bigots who discriminate"; and for "elect" and "election" to be utilized in place of "re-elect" and "reelection."

Nuacht Aoir has learned – exclusively – that the Easter Bunny is now in Southwest New Mexico. The world-renowned philanthropic leader is visiting with friends in the area of the Burro Mountains as well as in the wilderness areas of the Gila National Forest.

In an off-the-paw interview earlier this week in the Gila, the Easter Bunny told Nuacht Aoir about plans for the Easter Sunday trip this coming weekend as well as plans for the Orthodox Easter Sunday trip on the first weekend in May.

Due to the sensitive nature of these plans, Nuacht Aoir agreed to refrain from reporting on the Easter Bunny's visit here until today.

The leprechauns have again gathered for their international meeting in Southwest New Mexico.

Nuacht Aoir has learned – exclusively – that the Leprechaun International Convention is taking place today, Saint Patrick’s Day, near Lordsburg. This is the third year that the leprechauns have convened in the region. In 2022, the leprechauns met in Silver City, and in 2023, the convention took place in Catron County.

Donnchadha the Leprechaun, agreed to a short in-person interview early this morning at an undisclosed location near Lordsburg.

(Leprechauns only have one name; a few prominent leprechauns are allowed to add “the Leprechaun” to their name. Donnchadha is one of the more prominent Irish leprechauns.)
