“Alright, I have just been served in the January 6th lawsuit – live, right here on your radio show,” Stone continued. “This is a big, big stack of papers, which is good because we’re out of toilet paper.”

“I was served with this baseless, groundless, unsubstantiated harassment lawsuit filed against President Trump and me this morning. Lawfare! Help me fight these left-wing vultures by going to StoneDefenseFund.com,” Stone said in a statement, per Newsweek.

Prominent Cybersecurity Lawyer Indicted on Charge of Lying to FBI During Meeting on Trump, Russia

A prominent cybersecurity lawyer was indicted on a charge of lying to the FBI during a meeting about the Trump Russia hoax, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

Michael E. Sussman’s indictment was expected, after he was accused of making a false statement about his client during the meeting, the New York Times reports.

Sussman’s lawyers denied the accusation and vowed to fight any charge in court.

The meeting in question was on September 19, 2016 during which Sussman relayed concerns to the FBI by cybersecurity researchers who believed unusual internet data might be evidence of a covert communications channel between Trump and Russia.

The FBI eventually dismissed the concerns.

Sussman’s indictment marks the first criminal case developed by the special counsel appointed by Trump in May 2019 to investigate the Russia hoax.

Amazon Blocks Ad for New Book Investigating BLM Leaders

In the latest example of Big Tech censorship, Amazon blocked an advertisement for a new book investigating the leaders of Black Lives Matter, claiming content that involves “controversial or highly debated social topics is not permitted.”

“BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution” by Mike Gonzalez seeks to answer questions about the Black Lives Matter organization and movement.

“I wrote this book because most of the press refused to cover the important questions about the people and organizations behind Black Lives Matter,” Gonzalez said in a statement. “Now Amazon is trying to limit how many Americans read this book.”

As reported by the Daily Signal, the Heritage Foundation attempted to buy the ad for the book. On Tuesday, Amazon said that the ad “no longer complies with our current Creative Acceptance Policies.”

However, Amazon reversed its action Thursday, saying their “policies were inaccurately enforced, and the book is now being advertised.”

“We are providing training to ensure our teams are clear on our policies,” Amazon said.

Ohio Mayor Tells School Board to Resign or Be Charged with Child Porn Over Wildly Inappropriate Writing Prompts

An Ohio mayor confronted a school board over inappropriate writing prompts given to students in class, telling them to resign or face potential child pornography charges. 

Mayor Craig Shubert spoke to a judge regarding an assignment, titled “642 Things to Write About,” which the judge said was at a level of criminality, per the Daily Wire. 

The writing assignment included prompts like, “write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom,” and “rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you’d let your mom read.” 

“It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom,” Mayor Shubert said. “I’ve spoken to a judge this evening and she’s already confirmed that. So I’m going to give you a simple choice: Either choose to resign from this board of education or you will be charged.” 

Parents attending the school board meeting erupted in celebration following the mayor’s statement. 

A former teacher and mother of a high school senior who received the assignment shared some of the other prompts at the meeting: 

“Choose how you will die.
Write a scene that begins: ‘It was the first time I killed a man.’
Describe your favorite part of a man’s body using only verbs.
You have a dream that you’ve murdered someone. Who is it, how and why did the murder happen, and what happens afterward?
You are a serial killer. What TV shows are on your DVR list? Why?
The kill fee.
Write a sex scene you wouldn’t show your mom.
Rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you’d let your mom read.
You have just been caught in bed by a jealous spouse. How will you talk your way out of this?
Write a sermon for a beloved preacher who has been caught in a sex scandal.
Describe a time when you wanted to orgasm but couldn’t.
Ten euphemisms for sex.
You are a brand-new suicide-hotline counselor. Describe how you feel during the course of your first call.
Write a letter from the point of view of a drug addict.
Drink a beer. Write about the taste.
Write an X-rated Disney scenario.
A roomful of people who want to sleep together.
The first time you had sex.”

However, the president of the school board indicated that no one plans to resign. 

“While we respect the Mayor’s position within the City of Hudson, in accordance with the State laws of Ohio, the supervision of the public schools of this District is the responsibility of the Board of Education,” David Zuro said in a statement. “At this time, no Board of Education member has indicated any intention to resign.”

FDA Says Covid Vaccines Provide Enough Protection Without Additional Booster Dose

The Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that vaccines provide enough protection against severe disease and death without the need for an additional booster dose. 

The findings came in a report analyzing data submitted by Pfizer as part of their request for authorization for their vaccine to be given as a booster to people 16 years and older, the Wall Street Journal reports. 

An outside panel of advisers will review the report Friday, along with an analysis from Pfizer, as part of a discussion on who needs booster shots and at what time. 

Indeed, the Biden administration aimed to start distributing booster shots next week, however evidence does not prove it to be necessary. 

“Overall, data indicate that currently U.S.-licensed or authorized Covid-19 vaccines still afford protection against severe Covid-19 disease and death in the United States,” the report read.

Adults 65 years and older, as well as individuals in chronic-care facilities, healthcare workers and those who were vaccinated early, are expected to be eligible for booster shots first.

CDC Warns Measles is Spreading Among Afghan Refugees

The CDC sent a private warning to the chief of Afghan evacuation operations detailing a measles outbreak among refugees that poses a major threat to public health.

In the memo, CDC Director Rochelle Walensky urged Operations Allies Welcome to take “urgent public health action” including mass vaccinations of refugees, as there are now six confirmed cases, 17 suspected and hundreds of exposures.

“The large number of unvaccinated Afghan evacuees as seen already has the potential to seed countless U.S. community outbreaks,” Walensky said, per Just the News. “These outbreaks represent a major public health threat and rapid mass vaccination and expanding quarantine and isolation capacities are essential.”

She added that the current case numbers indicate the potential for “much larger imminent outbreaks” that could overwhelm hospitals already battling the Delta variant.

“Immediate implementation of CDC public health standards is imperative to prevent introduction of measles into US communities and to respond to multiple concurrent measles outbreaks,” Walensky wrote. “Health care facilities are already at limited capacity as they battle the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which requires tremendous workforce in laboratory assets.”

“Failing to swiftly execute the measures outlined above will likely result in increased exposure to evacuees and personnel supporting OAW operations, including safe havens,” she wrote. “Further, evacuates who have not been vaccinated (41% of children under five years old are not currently protected against measles) pose a public health threat.”

Simone Biles Testifies Before Senate Judiciary Committee, Says FBI ‘Turned a Blind Eye’ to Sexual Abuse

Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles and other champion gymnasts testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday regarding years of sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

Biles told the panel that it felt as though the “FBI turned a blind eye” to the gymnasts and “went out of its way to help protect” the organizations that enabled the abuse, Just the News reports.

“A message needs to be sent: If you allow a predator to harm children, the consequences will be swift and severe,” she said.

Simone Biles blamed the ‘entire system’ of U.S. gymnastics for the abuse she suffered at the hands of Larry Nassar.

Indeed, the Senate committee called for a hearing following a report by the Office of the Inspector General in July, which detailed significant errors by FBI personnel in the investigation of Nassar. Allegations against the doctor were first brought forward during the summer of 2015.

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney shared graphic details about the abuse.

“What is the point of reporting abuse if our own FBI agents are going to take it upon themselves to bury that report in a drawer?,” she asked.

One of the FBI agents involved in the bungled report and investigation, Michael Langeman, was reportedly fired earlier this week.

Former Pentagon Chief, Others Call for Milley to Resign…He Declines

Former acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller said Wednesday he did not authorize Gen. Mark Milley to directly contact China’s top military commander, despite claims that the secret conversations were approved.

Miller said the alleged calls were a “disgraceful and unprecedented act of insubordination” and that Milley should resign immediately.”

Similarly, Sen. Rand Paul said Wednesday that Milley “could have started an accidental nuclear war” if he did, in fact, make unauthorized phone calls to China during Trump’s final weeks as president.

“If I were president, I would sit him down immediately and have him take a polygraph test and ask him, ‘What did you say to the Chinese?’” Paul said, per Just the News.

“Did you indicate that the president was liable to attack them and that you would try to prevent that? If that is true, that could have started an accidental nuclear war,” he continued. “We could have a nuclear war over a mistake because the general is going outside the line of command to insinuate something that nobody believes to be true, but actually could have started a war.”

However, in a statement, Milley disregarded calls for him to resign.

“General Milley continues to act and advise within his authority in the lawful tradition of civilian control of the military and his oath to the Constitution,” the chairman’s spokesman, Col. Dave Butler, said in a statement.

“His calls with the Chinese and others in October and January were in keeping with these duties and responsibilities conveying reassurance in order to maintain strategic stability. All calls from the Chairman to his counterparts, including those reported, are staffed, coordinated and communicated with the Department of Defense and the interagency.”

Senate Democrats Unleash New Voting Legislation

A group of Senate democrats unveiled Tuesday new legislation to expand voting in federal elections following previous republican dismissal.

The new Freedom to Vote Act was introduced by Sen. Amy Klobuchar with co-sponsors including Sens. Joe Manchin, Tim Kaine, Jon Tester and Raphael Warnock, Just the News reports.

The move comes after Senate republicans blocked the previous For the People Act in June.

We reached agreement on the Freedom to Vote Act w/ Sens Schumer,Kaine,King,Manchin, Merkley,Padilla,Tester& Warnock to strengthen our democracy. It’s a really good bill! It stops the chaos by setting basic national voting standards, anti-gerrymandering protections & Disclose Act.

— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) September 14, 2021

Joe Biden celebrated the proposed legislation on Twitter.

“I strongly support The Freedom to Vote Act and thank the eight Senators who came together to draft it,” he said. “Let’s get this passed.”

The new bill keeps significant parts of the For the People Act, including mandating national minimum standards for early voting and mail-in voting, establishing Election Day as a national holiday, and creating new disclosure requirements for “dark money” groups that are not now required to disclose their donors.

Per the Washington Post:

The new legislation also adds some new elements, including provisions meant to thwart state-level efforts in GOP-controlled states that some are warning could allow officials to override election results. Sections aimed at so-called election subversion would create federal protections for elections officials and create standards for the [handling] of election equipment and records that could forestall partisan audits such as the review of the 2020 presidential election results ordered by the Arizona Senate.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Survives Recall Election

California Gov. Gavin Newsom will remain in office following the state’s long-anticipated recall election Tuesday.

The recall election asked voters whether Newsom should be removed from his position, to which they were to mark “yes” or “no,” and gave voters who wanted him gone the choice of 46 alternatives. A majority of Californians have voted no, Fox News reports.

Newsom thanked California voters for keeping him.

“We said yes to science. We said yes to vaccines,” Newsom said in brief remarks at a news conference. “We said yes to ending this pandemic. We said yes to people’s right to vote without fear. We said yes to women’s constitutional right to decide.”

Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder, who was the front runner among the 46 replacements, also shared a message with his supporters Tuesday night.

“Let’s be gracious in defeat,” Elder told his supporters Tuesday night after they booed when he mentioned Newsom, per NBC News. “We may have lost the battle, but we are going to win the war.”

Newsom faced backlash and several crises throughout the pandemic, specifically when photos surfaced of him evading his own COVID-19 protocols at elite dinner parties. However, democrats across the country shelled out millions of dollars in campaign funds to help his cause.
