Oregon Legislator Is 1st-Ever Ousted After Capitol Breach

Republican lawmakers voted with majority Democrats in the Oregon House of Representatives to take the historic step of expelling a Republican member who let … protesters into the state Capitol on Dec. 21.

Legislators said on the House floor that this could be the most important vote they ever cast. They then proceeded Thursday night to expel an unapologetic Rep. Mike Nearman with a 59-1 vote, marking the first time a member has been expelled by the House in its 160-year history. The only vote against the resolution for expulsion was Nearman’s own.

“The facts are clear that Mr. Nearman unapologetically coordinated and planned a breach of the Oregon State Capitol,” House Speaker Tina Kotek, a Democrat, said after the vote. “His actions were blatant and deliberate, and he has shown no remorse for jeopardizing the safety of every person in the Capitol that day.” (Read more from “Oregon Legislator Is 1st-Ever Ousted After Capitol Breach” HERE)

Law Firm Accused of Firing Pro-Trump Partners and Employees

Three former employees of a Minneapolis law firm are alleging that the firm’s president wrongfully fired them due to his belief that they were supporters of former President Trump.

William Kain, Margaret Henehan and Kelsey Quarberg, who were all partners at St.Cloud-based Kain and Scott law firm, filed a lawsuit against law firm president Wesley Scott alleging that he sought to fire employees he believed shared pro-Trump posts on social media, according to the Star Tribune.

The outlet reported that Scott is accused of telling the law firm’s operation manager to fire two employees he deemed to be racist because they were Trump supporters. When she refused, Scott fired her as well as another employee, the suit claims.

Kain, Henehan and Quarberg allege in the lawsuit that Scott’s actions came as a result of his outrage over the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Scott is also accused of calling the police to remove Quarberg from the building and telling other employees that the partners were violating “everything that is dear to us and I won’t let that happen,” The Associated Press reported.

Pervert Who Masturbated on Zoom is CNN’s Chief Legal Analyst Again

Jeffrey Toobin returned to CNN on Thursday afternoon and admitted that masturbating during a Zoom call — which got him fired from the New Yorker and led to a leave of absence from the network — was “deeply moronic and indefensible.”

“I feel like we should address what’s happened in the months since we’ve seen you,” CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota said to Toobin, who was the network’s chief legal analyst. . .

Toobin, sporting a navy blue suit and a striped tie, responded by saying the masturbatory conduct was “deeply moronic and indefensible.” . . .

The network’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter reported that Toobin had asked CNN for some time off to deal “with a personal issue,” which the network granted. That time off then turned into a leave of absence that evidently ended eight months later on Thursday.

Citing a CNN spokesperson, Stelter reported Toobin will be back on CNN regularly as a chief legal analyst, despite the flagrant misconduct he exhibited at the New Yorker. (Read more from “Pervert Who Masturbated on Zoom is CNN’s Chief Legal Analyst Again” HERE)

FDA Orders J&J To Throw Out 60 Million COVID Vaccines

Federal regulators have instructed Johnson & Johnson to discard roughly 60 million single-shot COVID-19 vaccines due to possible contamination following a manufacturing mishap at the Baltimore-based Emergent BioSolutions, an error that shut down the plant two months ago.

The Food and Drug Administration told the company to throw out the shots, and it has not yet decided whether the plant can reopen, according to the New York Times.

Federal regulators closed the plant two months ago amid reports that factory workers mistakenly contaminated 15 million J&J shots with the key ingredient for the AstraZeneca vaccine, which was also in production at that plant, even though it has not yet passed regulatory muster in the United States.

The mix-up caused federal officials to strip the plant of its responsibility to produce the AstraZeneca vaccine and handed over production authority to J&J. (Read more from “FDA Orders J&J To Throw Out 60 Million COVID Vaccines” HERE)

Capitol Physician Lifts Mask Mandate

Vaccinated members of the House of Representatives will no longer be required to wear a face covering when on the House floor after the Capitol Attending Physician lifted the chamber’s mask mandate Friday afternoon.

“The guideline document reflects that fully vaccinated individuals may discontinue mask wear and 6-foot social distance separations in most situations consistent with the CDC revision regarding fully vaccinated individuals of May 13, 2021,” explained the new guidance that came almost a month after the federal government decreed masks and social distancing precautions were no longer necessary for vaccinated Americans.

Fox News’s Chad Pergram reported that the decision was made based on low community spread of the Wuhan coronavirus and a high rate of vaccination among those in the Capitol complex.

Latest Biden Nominee Involved in ‘Eco-Terrorism’ Case

President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy Stone-Manning, received legal immunity to testify in a 1993 criminal trial, court documents obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation show. The trial resulted in a 17 month prison sentence for tree spiking, a violent tactic used to prevent logging.

Stone-Manning testified that she sent an anonymous and threatening letter to the Forest Service in 1989 on behalf of John P. Blount, who she identified as her former roommate and a member of her circle of friends, court documents show. The letter warned that a local forest in Idaho set to be logged had been sabotaged with tree spikes, according to the documents.

“P.S. You bastards go in there anyway and a lot of people could get hurt,” the letter stated.

Tree spiking, which The Washington Post and other news outlets have described as an “eco-terrorism” tactic, is a form of sabotage in which metal spikes are nailed into trees to make them unsafe to log. If gone unnoticed, tree spikes can cause serious injuries for workers. . .

Stone-Manning told local media outlets at the time of the trial she waited until 1993 to inform federal authorities of her role in sending the letter because she was scared Blount would threaten her life. She also said she has always denounced tree spiking. (Read more from “Latest Biden Nominee Involved in ‘Eco-Terrorism’ Case” HERE)

NY Rep. Wants ‘Liability’ Omar Booted From Congressional Committee

New York Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis slammed Rep. Ilhan Omar as “a liability” to the country amid a Democratic civil war over the Minnesota “Squad” member likening the US and Israel to the Taliban and Hamas.

Malliotakis said the Somalia-born congresswoman should be grateful to be living in the United States but instead “badmouths” her adopted country — and as a result should at least be thrown off the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“She is a liability to that committee,” Malliotakis said in a Friday afternoon appearance on Fox News.

“When I went to Israel in 2019, I spoke to citizens … They for the first time saw the United States was wavering in its support for Israel because of members like Ilhan Omar and [New York Rep.] Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is a liability to the committee and she’s a liability to the United States of America.” (Read more from “NY Rep. Wants ‘Liability’ Omar Booted From Congressional Committee” HERE)

White House Silent as Democrat Civil War Breaks Out

Pelosi Condemns Ilhan Omar for Comparing Israel, U.S. to Hamas and the Taliban

By Townhall. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her leadership team issued a joint statement criticizing comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) that compared the United States and Israel with terrorist groups such as Hamas and the Taliban.

“Legitimate criticism of the policies of both the United States and Israel is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate. And indeed, such criticism is essential to the strength and health of our democracies,” stated Pelosi along with Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), Assistant Speaker Katherine Clark (D-MA), Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), and Caucus Vice Chair Pete Aguilar (D-CA). . .

Pelosi’s statement comes hours after GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called Rep. Omar’s comments “abhorrent” and said the Speaker’s “continued failure to address the issues in her caucus sends a message to the world that Democrats are tolerant of anti-Semitism and sympathizing with terrorists.”

White House Silent as Dem Civil War Breaks Out

By Fox News. The White House has remained silent about a bitter feud between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leadership and Rep. Ilhan Omar over her recent comments about the U.S. and Israel.

Omar, the two-term progressive representative from Minnesota, has come under fire over her Monday tweet that grouped the U.S. and Israel along with terror groups such as Hamas and the Taliban. She wrote that all had committed “unthinkable atrocities.” The tweet drew sharp condemnations from members of both parties. . .

Following Omar’s explanation, House Democratic leadership said in a statement that “false equivalencies between democracies like the U.S. and Israel and groups that engage in terrorism like Hamas and the Taliban foments prejudice and undermines progress toward a future of peace and security for all.”

“We welcome the clarification by Congresswoman Omar that there is no moral equivalency between the U.S. and Israel and Hamas and the Taliban,” the statement continued. . .

Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan tore into her party’s leadership following the release of the statement Thursday afternoon. Tlaib, who has her own history of controversial remarks, said Democratic leaders “should be ashamed” of their treatment of Omar and other “Congresswomen of color.”

Backfired: CMT Awards Civil War Over Guns and Cancel Culture Explodes Hours Before the Show

A pro-gun control tweet from Country Music Television (CMT) has backfired on the organization as the network is set to host the one of the biggest awards show for the genre: the CMT Music Awards.

A furious reaction broke out among country music fans last week after the Country Music Television Twitter account announced its support to end gun violence and encouraged everyone to wear orange in honour of the movement. . .

Responses to the tweet showed a majority of followers reacting negatively to CMT’s support of National Gun Violence Awareness Day, including some threatening to boycott the awards show, scheduled for Wednesday night, amid the organisation’s support.

“Sorry to have run across this on the day of the show. Looks like I’ve seen my last CMT Awards show as well as watching CMT. I’ll continue to follow country music (especially the songwriters); but I’ll listen to & watch country music elsewhere, mostly live in Nashville, it appears,” one Twitter user wrote. . .

“You just lost 75% of your viewers. I for one, will not ever watch any station who champions any campaign against the 2nd Amendment, which is what CMT just did. You’d think they would know their audiance [sic], but you put woke idiots in charge, and you get stupidity,” one Twitter user wrote.

Here’s What Kid Rock Has To Say to People ‘Offended’ Over His Use of Homophobic Slur

. . .In response to the backlash that he received following a performance at FishLipz Bar & Grill in Smithville, TN over the weekend, where he was recorded engaging in some prime choice homophobia, Rock, whose real name is Bob Richie, has now doubled down on the slur in a new social post.

The initial interaction over the weekend was in response to people in the crowd filming him on their phones. Gasp! “F*** your iPhone, yeah! You f***ing f*****s with your iPhones out!!!,” he screamed while proceeding to mock those recording him by pointing at his crotch and telling them to post that. Now, Rock leans on the tired response of people being too sensitive, by saying “If Kid Rock using the word f****t offends you, good chance you are one,” and that he has “a lot of love for his gay friends.” He signed off on the post using his real name while saying he’d “have a talk” with his alter ego.
