Lemon, who, I suppose, we can consider CNN’s top host now that its disgraced former star Chris Cuomo is out, has a habit of on-air tomfoolery on New Year’s Eve, which generally, as you might have imagined, appears to involve copious amounts of alcohol.

One year, for example, he caused a minor sensation after making a crude comment about comedian Kathy Griffin’s bosom. Another, he drunkenly thought a local newsgirl was his old college girlfriend. (By the way, it seems remiss not to mention at this point that Lemon is, were you not aware, openly gay.)

This year, however, his drunken on-camera idiocy — which, as my suspicions had been correct, did occur — took on a new and significantly more disgraceful air considering it came at a time when his network is embroiled in a series of scandals of the child sexual assault variety, on top of the sordid affairs he and Cuomo have both found themselves in.

In case you’ve missed it, Cuomo was ousted from the network in early December as new information was released regarding the extent to which he helped his brother, now-former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, respond to a sexual harassment scandal over which big brother ultimately resigned.

Cuomo reportedly tried to use his contacts in the news industry to help his brother’s team get ahead of news stories surrounding the accusations that the governor had groped and kissed several non-consenting women.

Before this new information was released, Cuomo had already been forced to apologize on air for the role he played helping his brother respond to the accusations.

Then after continuing to be allowed on air in light of text messages released by the New York attorney general’s office in November, Cuomo was fired after an accusation of sexual impropriety was raised against him by an anonymous woman represented by the attorney of one of former Gov. Cuomo’s accusers.

Now, that’s just Chris Cuomo, and it’s not even the end of his ties to CNN’s sex scandals.

Just a week after he was fired, a CNN producer was arrested and charged with crimes related to his alleged recruitment and sexual abuse of underage girls, whom prosecutors say he led in online “training” sessions with their mothers to teach them to be “sexually subservient” to men and that he even paid for one in-person meeting in which he assaulted a 9-year-old girl.

This producer, John Griffin, appears to have been quite chummy with Chris Cuomo when the two worked together on the program “New Day” before Cuomo got his own show in 2017.

It wasn’t long, however, before a second CNN producer was accused of soliciting sexually explicit images of a 15-year-old girl who he also allegedly fantasized about abusing in text messages obtained by guerilla journalism group Project Veritas.

This producer is now under investigation.

CNN has felt the heat of sex scandal before and barely flinched; after only briefly booting contributor Jeffrey Toobin from the network after he was caught masturbating during a Zoom call with female co-workers, they quietly brought him back to provide his apparently priceless commentary after the scandal blew over.

So after re-hiring a pervert who can’t keep it in his pants long enough to sit through a Zoom call, firing their top anchor for helping his brother to cover for a sex scandal before becoming embroiled in one himself and seeing two, count ‘em two, network producers accused of sick sex crimes involving children, you would have thought it would be a year for CNN to keep a tight leash on their hosts on New Year’s Eve, take full advantage of the broadcast delay and try to lay low and avoid any more sex scandal.

But no.

Not CNN.

No one thought it might be a good idea to cut the cameras once a woman who was partying with Lemon started talking about her New Year’s resolution to avoid engaging in coitus with men who can’t afford to fly her to the Caribbean, and no, I’m not making this up.

This actually happened:

https://twitter.com/goodblackdude/status/1477168409544585217

A woman on what appeared to be a parked parade float featuring dancing drag queens told Lemon that her New Year’s resolution was to avoid “broke d***,” a comment which took Lemon a few tries to hear, ultimately forcing him to remove his earpiece.

When she clarified her comment, he began laughing uncontrollably, as she went on to lament that “broke d***” was lamentably “so good,” which might pose an obstacle to her fulfilling her lofty resolution.

Yes, instead of more wisely signaling to his producer that they might want to cut back to Anderson Cooper (who was, to be fair, grappling with his own on-air snags), Don Lemon drunkenly and delightedly commiserated with his saucy interviewee as she explained her goals for 2022’s casual sexual encounters.

What’s more, as one Twitter user pointed out, it appeared that there might have even been a child within earshot when the host giggled over these crude remarks, as a very young woman appears to be seated next to Lemon’s co-host, Brooke Baldwin, as the two also grin and snicker over the exchange.

    Mom Says Middle School Invited Daughter to Secret LGBTQ+ Club, ‘Did Unthinkable Things with the Children’

    Published

    on

    A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an “art club” after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that “if they’re not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they’re transgender” — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

    Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her “shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter” had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an “art club” after school.

    “She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club,” Lee said of her daughter. “When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I’ll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, ‘what you hear in here, keep in here.’ She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they’re not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they’re transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that ‘queer’ is a label for when they’re still figuring out their sexuality.

    “She did the ‘Genderbread person,’ which explicitly asked kids who they’re sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it’s okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, ‘remember, you don’t have to tell your mom.'”

    The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

    Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a “safe space.” Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored “for months.” Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and “strong ally” to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.
    “FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened,” Lee told Glenn. “They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as ‘barriers’ that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn’t like what they did with my child,” she continued.

    “My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she’d had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS … In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn’t affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child,” Lee warned. “Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere.”

    ‘Sorry. Not Beautiful’: Jordan Peterson Blasts Sports Illustrated Over Plus-Sized Swimsuit Issue Cover Model

    Published

    on

    Dr. Jordan Peterson blasted Sports Illustrated Monday for featuring a plus-sized model on the cover of its annual Swimsuit Issue.

    “Sorry. Not beautiful,” Peterson remarked on Twitter in response to a New York Post headline about Yumi Nu, who was announced as the cover model for Sports Illustrated’s 2022 Swimsuit Issue. “And no amount of authoritarian tolerance is going to change that.”

    Peterson illustrated his objection in response to a Twitter user who criticized him. “It’s a conscious progressive attempt to manipulate & retool the notion of beauty, reliant on the idiot philosophy that such preferences are learned & properly changed by those who know better … but don’t let the facts stop you,” Peterson fired back at the user.

    Peterson also included links to two scientific studies in his reply: the first one, published in the journal Infant Behavior and Development in 1998, showed that babies spent more time looking at faces judged to be attractive by adults; the second, a 2009 study published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, found that more attractive women had more children than their less attractive counterparts, while the least attractive men had less children than every other group of men, who had roughly the same number of children, indicating that physical attractiveness may be related to reproductive success rates.

    Peterson’s tweet came in response to a New York Post interview with Nu, who will appear as one of the cover models of the 2022 Swimsuit Issue, along with model, socialite, and television personality Kim Kardashian, model and singer Ciara, and model Maye Musk, the mother of Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. The 25-year-old Nu is of Dutch and Japanese ancestry. She is the granddaughter of Rocky Aoki, the founder of the Benihana chain of restaurants, and the niece of DJ Steve Aoki.

    In the interview, Nu expressed her excitement at the opportunity and described herself as a champion of body and race diversity. “It’s amazing. I’m on cloud nine,” she told the Post. “This is nothing I could prepare for. It’s unexpected. I feel like we’re in a place right now where people are making space for more diversity on magazine covers. It’s a big time for Asian-American people in media. I know I play a big role in representation in body diversity and race diversity, and I love to be a role model and representative of the plus-size Asian community.”

    The 2022 Swimsuit Issue is Nu’s first appearance on the cover, but not her first in the issue itself, as she was previously featured in last year’s issue. She is also the first Asian plus-sized model to appear on the cover. Sports Illustrated drew controversy when it featured plus-sized model Ashley Graham on the cover of the issue in 2016. Graham’s appearance has since become a trend. Plus-sized model Hunter McGrady, dubbed the “curviest model ever,” appeared on the cover in 2020. In the Post interview, Nu said that both Graham and McGrady were inspirations for her.

    The swimsuit issue also includes a number of race and body diversity firsts, including the first breast cancer survivor to appear in the issue, the first indigenous woman, and a NASA physicist, as well as the first woman to reveal a C-section scar in her photo for the issue.

    Police Investigating Arby’s Manager For Child Porn Find Video Of Him Peeing In Milkshake Mix

    Published

    on

    Police investigating an Arby’s night manager in Vancouver, Washington, on suspicion of obtaining and distributing child pornography discovered a video of him urinating in milkshake mix last October.

    The Vancouver Police Department executed a search warrant on Stephen Sharp last week, where they obtained the disturbing footage. Sharp later confessed to urinating in milkshake mix on at least two occasions, claiming he did it for sexual gratification.

    “The alleged actions of the former franchised employee are abhorrent and unacceptable,” an Arby’s spokesperson told KTTV. “We have taken immediate action with the franchise group who terminated the former employee and is fully cooperating with the authorities in their investigation.”

    Sharp reportedly told police that he was “almost sure” he threw out the bag of milkshake mix he had urinated in. “The affidavit states Sharp said he was working alone in the restaurant that night and that he did it for sexual gratification,” The Columbian reported. “He told detectives that if he didn’t throw the bag away, it would have been added to other mix by the next shift and served to people, court records state.”

    The Clark County Public Health Director Dr. Alan Melnick assured the public that there is no “significant health risk to consuming a drink contaminated with urine,” according to The Columbian.

    Police are now asking for anyone who bought a milkshake at the Arby’s location on October 30 or 31 to contact the department.

    “Police are asking if you purchased a milkshake from the Arby’s located at 221 NE 104 Ave, Vancouver WA on October 30 & 31, 2021 and you have a receipt or verified transaction information to confirm the purchase, please contact Detective Robert Givens,” a press release from the Vancouver Police stated.

    According to The Columbian, another manager at the restaurant said they sold between 30 and 40 milkshakes on October 30. Police found no evidence that the corporation or the franchise owner knew about Sharp’s “abhorrent” actions.

    A search of Sharp’s phone turned up “dozens of photos and videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children,” Vancouver police said.

    Sharp was arrested and charged with four counts of Possession of Depictions of Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct and four counts of Dealing Depictions of Minor Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct and Assault II.

    One Dead, Multiple People Injured in California Church Shooting — UPDATE: Shooter is 68 Year-Old Asian Man

    Published

    on

    One person was dead and several others injured during a shooting took place at a California church on Sunday, cops said.

    Sheriff’s deputies in Orange County responded to a report of a shooting at the Geneva Presbyterian Church on El Toro Road in Laguna Woods at around 2 p.m. local time.

    The sheriff’s department said that one person was in custody and they have obtained a weapon that they believe was used in the shooting.

    “Four victims have been critically wounded, one with minor injuries,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Department wrote on Twitter. “All victims are adults and are enroute to the hospital. One victim is deceased at the scene.”

    It was not immediately clear what the shooter’s motive may have been.

    NBC Los Angeles reports police arrived on scene at Laguna Woods’ Geneva Presbyterian Church to find that congregants hog-tied an alleged shooter with an extension cord.

    The incident takes place one day after a white supremacist killed 10 people during a shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo.

    UPDATE — Shooter is 68 year-old Asian man:

    A law enforcement source said officials believe the suspect was a 68-year-old Asian man who is originally from Las Vegas. No other details were available.

    The victims were described as mostly Asian and mostly of Taiwanese descent, authorities said.

    Clarence Thomas Has New Message Over ‘Tremendously Bad’ Roe v. Wade Leak

    Published

    on

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has called the shocking leak of the draft Roe v. Wade opinion a major violation of trust that has “fundamentally” changed the high court.

    Thomas made the remarks at a May 13 conference in Dallas, Texas, in which he decried the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion suggesting that the court is poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, with major implications for access to abortion.

    “I do think that what happened at the court is tremendously bad,” he said, referring to the May 2 leak of the opinion to Politico, adding that some time ago it would have been unthinkable for even “one line of one opinion” to have been disclosed without authorization.

    The Supreme Court has confirmed the authenticity of the draft opinion, but has called it preliminary. A ruling in the case is expected in June.

    Chief Justice John Roberts has ordered a probe into the leak. Thomas said its unauthorized disclosure undercut confidence in the Supreme Court and its internal processes.

    “When you lose that trust, especially in the institution that I’m in, it changes the institution fundamentally,” he said. “You begin to look over your shoulder. It’s like kind of an infidelity that you can explain it, but you can’t undo it.”

    “I wonder how long we’re going to have these institutions at the rate we’re undermining them,” Thomas said, echoing earlier remarks in which he expressed concern about a “different attitude of the young” toward respect for institutions and the law, suggesting that this is on the decline relative to past generations.

    Thomas was also critical of liberal protests outside the homes of conservative Supreme Court justices.

    “You would never visit Supreme Court justices’ houses when things didn’t go our way. We didn’t throw temper tantrums. I think it is … incumbent on us to always act appropriately and not to repay tit for tat,” he said.

    Besides pickets in front of the homes of several conservative justices, a flurry of protests and counterprotests broke out outside the Supreme Court after Politico obtained and published the draft opinion that would uphold a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy and overturn the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

    The protests have been loud, but mostly peaceful, though there have been reports that pro-abortion activists have attacked pro-life pastors.

    In a bid to prevent violence, police have surrounded the Supreme Court with a set of 9-foot-high metal barricades, with an officer telling an Epoch Times reporter that the move was made “just in case.”

    Speaking at a May 6 judicial conference in Atlanta, Thomas said that government institutions must not allow themselves to be strong-armed into delivering outcomes that people demand.

    “We are becoming addicted to wanting particular outcomes, not living with the outcomes we don’t like,” he said, according to Reuters.

    “We can’t be an institution that can be bullied into giving you just the outcomes you want.”

    Feds Launch Probe: FBI Interviews Parents of Alleged Buffalo Supermarket Shooter

    Published

    on

    The FBI is interviewing accused Buffalo shooter Payton Gendron’s parents, who both work as civil engineers with the state Department of Transportation, according to law-enforcement sources and online records.

    The couple, Paul and Pamela Gendron, are cooperating with investigators, sources added to AP.

    Photos at the home Sunday showed agents sifting through items in a large shed on the property.

    Payton, 18,is accused of traveling about 200 miles from the family’s home in Conklin, NY, to the Buffalo Tops Friendly Market on Saturday afternoon, when he launched a slaughter that killed 10 people. Payton specifically researched neighborhood’s demographics to target a predominantly black community, sources have said.

    The teen was a former student at Broome County Community College, where he aspired to be an engineer like his parents, according to ABC News.

    Terry Place, who lives a few doors down from the Gendrons in Conklin, said his family had occasional typical neighborly interactions with the shooter’s parents — and only really remembered Payton as their old paperboy.

    “We spoke to her a couple times here and there,” Terry Place said of Pamela Gendron, who was known to take morning walks along their quiet street in recent years.

    A preliminary investigation found that Payton had repeatedly visited sites espousing white supremacist ideologies and race-based conspiracy theories and extensively researched the 2019 mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the man who killed dozens of people at a summer camp in Norway in 2011, authorities have said.

    Top Democrat In U.S. Senate Race In Pennsylvania Hospitalized After Suffering Stroke

    Published

    on

    The leading Democrat candidate in the U.S. Senate race out of Pennsylvania was hospitalized late last week after suffering a stroke.

    John Fetterman, who is currently the state’s lieutenant governor, made the revelation in a statement that he released on Sunday afternoon.

    “On Friday, I wasn’t feeling well, so I went to the hospital to get checked out,” he said. “I didn’t want to go — I didn’t think I had to — but Gisele insisted, and as usual, she was right.”

    “I hadn’t been feeling well, but was so focused on the campaign that I ignored the signs and just kept going,” he continued. “On Friday it finally caught up with me. I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long. Fortunately, Gisele spotted the symptoms and got me to the hospital within minutes.”

    “The amazing doctors here were able to quickly and completely remove the clot, reversing the stroke, they got my heart under control as well,” he concluded. “It’s a good reminder to listen to your body and be aware of the signs.”

    The statement did not reveal whether or not he was still in the hospital.

    Fetterman has a commanding lead over his next closest Democrat challenger in the race.

    On the Republican side, candidates Dr. Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund executive David McCormick are in a tight race for the nomination.

    Fetterman holds far-left views on subjects like abortion, where he has stated that he does not believe that there should be any limits on abortion.

    “Abortions are going to continue in America whether it is legal or not. They just won’t be safe, if they are illegal, and we can’t ever go back to that. We just can’t.”

    Asked if there were “any limitations on abortion” that he would “find appropriate,” Fetterman responded, “I don’t believe so, no.”

    Fetterman has faced renewed controversy over an incident that happened years ago when he chased down a black man and pulled a gun on him and detained the him until police arrived, thinking that the man had been involved in a shooting.

    NBC News reported:

    It turned out that the man was jogging and wearing running clothes. According to a police report, the manwas unarmed and said the sound of gunfire was actually fireworks, although two witnesses thought they heard shots.

    The man Fetterman pulled a gun on is Black. Fetterman — the mayor of the Pittsburgh-area borough of Braddock at the time and now the state’s lieutenant governor — is white. Fetterman, 52, said he couldn’t tell the jogger’s race initially because of how he was bundled up in the winter cold.

    “He’s not shooting straight on this, no pun intended. Just ‘fess up. Apologize,” said Michael Nutter, Philadelphia’s last Black mayor, who is neutral in the Senate primary. “All this other stuff — that he was the chief law enforcement officer or that he didn’t know the guy was Black — just doesn’t really sound like he wants to tell the truth. It’s not helping him. Figuratively speaking, he’s shooting himself in the foot, and he doesn’t have to.”
