Kari Lake Vows Larger Legal Challenge After 1st Election Lawsuit Filed

Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake said that she is planning a larger legal challenge than the one that her team filed against Maricopa County earlier this week.

“So we filed this lawsuit in court today asking the county to cough up some of the public documentation we need for our bigger lawsuit,” she told Just the News Wednesday. Lake added that she has not determined what the remedy of the lawsuit would be.

“Many people are saying they want a redo of Maricopa County. I’ve heard people say throw it out. We have not determined what the remedy is. But I don’t think you can fix what happened,” she said.

Lake, a Republican backed by former President Donald Trump, criticized how the County ran the election, saying “there were three-hour lines” in part caused by problems with the tabulation equipment at polling locations, in an interview with Newsmax.

Earlier this week, Lake’s team filed a lawsuit against Maricopa County that called for the release of the country’s election records. (Read more from “Kari Lake Vows Larger Legal Challenge After 1st Election Lawsuit Filed” HERE)

U.S. Bans Chinese Tech That Allegedly Lets China Spy on Military Sites

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Friday announced a ban on new imports of Chinese-owned telecommunications equipment, including the equipment suspected of surveilling sensitive U.S. military sites.

The new rules, prohibiting U.S. sales and imports of equipment from companies including Huawei and ZTE, are the first to be implemented on the grounds they pose “unacceptable risk to national security,” FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr said Friday. U.S. authorities have expressed concerns that Beijing could exploit the companies’ telecommunications installations across the country to collect data from U.S. sites, including nuclear and military sites in the U.S.

“While we’ve flagged equipment as posing a national security risk, prohibited companies from using federal funds to purchase them, and even stood up programs to replace them, for the last several years the FCC has continued to put its stamp of approval on this equipment through its equipment authorization process,” FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statement.

“But that does not make any sense,” she added.

The FCC’s new regulations prohibit authorization of any new equipment from companies already listed on an existing log of communications and services that the FCC determines pose an “unacceptable” national security threat, and includes Huawei, ZTE, Hytera, Hikvision and Dahua.

‘Liberal Bias’ or ‘Cheney 2024’? J6 Staffers, Liz Cheney Trade Blows Over Final Committee Report

GOP Rep. Liz Cheney has drawn the ire of House January 6 Committee staffers over her influence on the final committee report expected out next month.

At least fifteen current and former members of the committee believe Cheney is manipulating the final report to place too much focus on former President Donald Trump while leaving other important information out, according to The Washington Post. Cheney’s office says that the staffers are wrong and that the information the Wyoming congresswoman is cutting out was rife with “liberal bias.”

One former committee staffer said that Cheney’s changes to the report were done chiefly for political reasons. Cheney’s focus on Trump is potentially coming at the cost of other committee research on law enforcement, militia groups, and financing, staffers complained.

“We all came from prestigious jobs, dropping what we were doing because we were told this would be an important fact-finding investigation that would inform the public,” the former staffer told WaPo. “But when [the committee] became a Cheney 2024 campaign, many of us became discouraged.” (Read more from “‘Liberal Bias’ or ‘Cheney 2024’?

FDA Approves Most Expensive Drug in the World

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a $3.5 million drug treatment Tuesday, the most expensive drug in the world.

Hemgenix, manufactured by CSL Behring, is the first gene therapy that treats adults with hemophilia B, a genetic bleeding disorder resulting in insufficient levels of a protein called Factor IX that is needed to stop bleeding. Those with severe hemophilia B are required to have regular infusions, but the new multi-million dollar gene therapy is a single-dose IV infusion, carrying a gene for blood clotting Factor IX.

“Today’s approval provides a new treatment option for patients with Hemophilia B and represents important progress in the development of innovative therapies for those experiencing a high burden of disease associated with this form of hemophilia,” said Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research.

Around one in 40,000 people, mostly men, have the bleeding disorder. Those with hemophilia B can experience heavy or prolonged bleeding after injuries, surgeries, and dental procedures. Some with the hemophilia B even bleed for no apparent reason, and the disease can cause bleeding into joints, muscles, internal organs, and the brain.

Disturbed Family: Colo. Shooting Suspect’s Dad Posted Bizarre Videos of Him Being Kicked in the Groin

. . .Videos show the troubled father of Colorado nightclub shooting suspect Anderson Aldrich claiming supplements made him impervious to repeated kicks to his groin.

Entitled “Ouch my Balls,” the mini-series presents former MMA fighter and porn actor Aaron Brink shrugging off eye-watering blows thanks to Stevia sugar substitute and a substance called Arginine.

“Aaron Brink gets kicked in the balls in a business suit,” reads an introductory note in one of the productions, originally posted a deacade ago. . .

In an interview with a San Diego television station Tuesday, Brink claimed to be a devout Mormon and said he was opposed to homosexuality.

“And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar,” he told CBS 8. “I said, ‘God, is he gay?’ I got scared, ‘S–t, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, ‘Phew…’ (Read more from “Disturbed Family: Colo. Shooting Suspect’s Dad Posted Bizarre Videos of Him Being Kicked in the Groin” HERE)

INSANITY: Biden Wastes Billions on COVID Boosters NO ONE Wants

When it comes to wasting money, the Biden administration has few peers. Earlier in the year, Team Biden re-purposed billions of dollars to buy 170 million doses of the new bivalent COVID-19 vaccine. The problem is, few people are getting the shots.

The CDC reports that just 35 million people — roughly 11% of the population and only 15% of the 227 million people who have completed the primary vaccine series and are eligible for the new booster — have taken it in the three months since it was authorized.

But instead of examining why the response is so poor, the administration is resorting to its usual solution — spend more money. White House COVID-19 response coordinator, Dr. Ashish Jha, has just announced a “six-week sprint” to convince Americans to get their updated vaccines.

The White House fact sheet for the new campaign reports that already “Over 70,000 locations are offering the updated COVID-19 vaccines, and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has taken steps this month to expand to even more locations.”

Apparently, that is not enough. The administration says it will pilfer another $475 million from the Provider Relief Fund — meant to preserve the healthcare system by financially supporting providers who experienced lost revenues and increased expenses during the pandemic — to boost bivalent booster uptake. The program will “invest” (this administration never spends) $350 million into community health centers to raise booster awareness and expand vaccination activities. Another $125 million will go “to national organizations that serve people with disabilities and older adults to support community vaccination programs and efforts.” (Read more from “Biden Wastes Billions on COVID Boosters No One Wants” HERE)

There’s Something Fishy About the Special Counsel Investigating Trump

Last week, the Biden administration’s Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed special counsel Jack Smith to investigate former President Donald Trump, days after President Joe Biden’s top GOP rival declared a third bid for the presidency.

Garland’s appointment marks the naming of the third special counsel in five years to examine Trump-related matters. But this particular pick has had some major misfires, one of which took out a high-profile potential Republican presidential candidate.

More than a decade ago, under President Barack Obama’s leadership, Attorney General Eric Holder picked Smith to oversee the Justice Department’s public integrity section. A few years later, Smith’s unit convicted former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, a Republican, in 2014 on corruption charges for accepting over $165,000 in gifts and loans from an affluent businessman in exchange for promoting a dietary supplement. However, two years went by, and the Supreme Court overturned the conviction in a unanimous ruling that found that the jury was given faulty instructions about what constitutes bribery under federal law.

McDonnell maintained he never took any “official action” to benefit the CEO of Star Scientific Inc. or pressured state leaders to do so; he just performed routine courtesies—”everyday acts” that are part of the job, as McDonnell claimed—for the wealthy benefactor, such as setting up meetings and hosting promotional events like a launch luncheon at the governor’s mansion.

Private Documents Reveal Trudeau Was Going to Use Tanks to Stop Anti-COVID Protests

Documents reveal that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau inquired about the use of martial law in February during the Freedom Convoy protests.

Two of Canada’s federal ministers talked about using tanks against the peaceful protests who were advocating for their right to not be mandated to get a vaccine.

On April 25, The Public Order Emergency Commission looked into whether the use of wartime vehicles to stop the trucker protests was justified or not.

Politico reported that the government had waived cabinet confidence solely for the inquiry, which allowed Canadian residents to understand why Tredeau attempted to use tanks. (Read more from “Private Documents Reveal Trudeau Was Going to Use Tanks to Stop Anti-COVID Protests” HERE)

Trump Dined at Mar-a-Lago With White Nationalist, Holocaust Denier Nick Fuentes Alongside Kanye West; Trump Responds, ‘Had Never Met and Knew Nothing About’ Fuentes

Trump’s campaign provided Breitbart News with this statement from President Trump: “Kanye West very much wanted to visit Mar-a-Lago. Our dinner meeting was intended to be Kanye and me only, but he arrived with a guest whom I had never met and knew nothing about.”

Kanye West released screenshots of text messages and a video after his dinner Tuesday night at Mar-a-Lago with former President Donald Trump that suggest in addition to dining with the rapper this week, the former president met with an openly white nationalist and Holocaust denier named Nick Fuentes. . .

In a separate tweet, West released screenshots of text messages purportedly between himself, Fuentes, Milo Yiannopoulos, and an unidentified person whose name is blurred out.

In this screenshot, the person identified as Fuentes specifically says he spoke to Trump. The unidentified person first surmises and blames former Trump aide and current GETTR CEO Jason Miller for leaking the sighting of Fuentes at Mar-a-Lago in conjunction with West’s meeting with Trump. After the person identified as Yiannopoulos responds saying Trump’s 2024 presidential announcement speech was written by Miller, the unidentified person asks the person identified as Fuentes if he told Trump during dinner that Miller did not like Fuentes.

Thousands of Amazon Workers Strike on Black Friday

Thousands of Amazon workers are going on strike and walking out on Black Friday, protesting their working conditions and pay.

The “Make Amazon Pay” campaign planned strikes and walkouts encompassing thousands of employees in more than 30 different countries across six continents, the campaign’s website reported. The MAP website listed rising costs of living, Amazon’s supposed tax avoidance, and the company’s alleged ignoring of climate change as justification for the campaign, demanding that the company address these issues and pay workers more.

“For workers and consumers, the price of everything is going up. And for everyone, the global temperature is rising and our planet is under stress. But instead of supporting its workers, communities and the planet, Amazon is squeezing every last drop it can,” the campaign’s website writes. “We are workers and citizens divided by geography and our role in the global economy but united in our commitment to Make Amazon Pay fair wages, its taxes and for its impact on the planet.”

MAP is a 70-member coalition of trade unions and left-wing groups, including Progressive International, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Amazon Workers International, and Data for Black Lives. (Read more from “Thousands of Amazon Workers Strike on Black Friday” HERE)
