Tony Perkins, Montel Williams, Josh Duggar

Television personality Montel Williams continued his attacks on Josh Duggar and his family, moving from Twitter to his Facebook page Friday night and expanding his assault on Duggar’s former boss, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.

On Thursday, Williams called Josh Duggar a “Slimebag” tweeting, “Sorry, Josh Duggar is a bigot, slimebag. Whole family is, and FRC is a scam. Yup, Gay people are the danger to kids? NOPE, JOSH DUGGAR IS.”

That followed an earlier tweet where he wrote, “BREAKING: Josh Duggar, a world class bigot, admits sexually abusing young girls – has consistently stated that LGBT folks r danger to kids.”

Criticized on Facebook by self-styled evangelist Joshua Feuerstein who wrote, “You are a has been [sic] washed up piece of crap.. But Jesus loves you! That’s what amazes me,” Williams expanded upon his comments about Josh Duggar and the FRC.

“What this guy, and frankly what Duggar, his parents, his former employer apparently don’t care about is we have an epidemic of anti-#lgbtyouth killing themselves over being relegated to second class citizenship by hypocrites like Duggar and charlatans like Tony Perkins, ” he wrote. “WHEN IS THE LAST TIME AN LGBT teen getting picked on trended on Facebook all day? When has one gotten the attention I did today as they are assaulted by rhetoric from the Duggars of the world telling them they are “mistakes” or that which they cannot change is a blasphemy, or worse, telling them they are deviant dangers to kids”

Williams went on to call what the Duggars and Perkins engage in, “Rhetorical terrorism.”

“We need to start calling the rabid anti-#lbgt movement (not religious folks whose faith tells them being gay is a sin but yet take no action to discriminate against or demean/dehumanize those who are gay) what it is – RHETORICAL TERRORISM. ”

The only response from  the FRC on the the departure of Josh Duggar — after admitting he had molested his sisters when they were younger — came from Perkins who issued a statement.

“Today Josh Duggar made the decision to resign his position as a result of previously unknown information becoming public concerning events that occurred during his teenage years. Josh believes that the situation will make it difficult for him to be effective in his current work, Perkins wrote. ” We believe this is the best decision for Josh and his family at this time.  We will be praying for everyone involved.”

Perkins is normally more vocal about protecting children, saying he is against same-sex marriage because children are better off with “with a mom and a dad in the home

FBI chief on a ‘collision course’ with Trump because he’s too smart to ignore facts: Andrew McCabe

Published

on

Speaking on CNN this Friday, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe pushed back on President Trump's recent claim that China poses a bigger threat to the U.S. election than Russia does --  a claim that is picking up steam amongst Trump administration officials.

According to McCabe, Trump's assessment is "to be expected," adding that current FBI Director Christopher Wray's opposite assessment is a sign that he'll "probably be in conflict with this president."

When asked by CNN anchor Brianna Keilar why the Trump administration is focused on China over Russia, McCabe said it's because they "don't like the narrative that Russia is doing in 2020 the same thing that they did in 2016."

Does wildfire smoke cause long-term harm? Here’s what we know

Published

on

SEELEY LAKE, Mont. — When researchers arrived in this town tucked in the Northern Rockies three years ago, they could still smell the smoke a day after it cleared from devastating wildfires. Their plan was to chart how long it took for people to recover from living for seven weeks surrounded by relentless smoke.

They still don’t know, because most residents haven’t recovered. In fact, they’ve gotten worse.

Forest fires had funneled hazardous air into Seeley Lake, a town of fewer than 2,000 people, for 49 days. The air quality was so bad that on some days the monitoring stations couldn’t measure the extent of the pollution. The intensity of the smoke and the length of time residents had been trapped in it were unprecedented, prompting county officials to issue their first evacuation orders due to smoke, not fire risk.

Election gift for Florida? Trump poised to approve drug imports from Canada

Published

on

Over the objections of drugmakers, the Trump administration is expected within weeks to finalize its plan that would allow states to import some prescription medicines from Canada.

Six states — Colorado, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Vermont — have passed laws allowing them to seek federal approval to buy drugs from Canada to give their residents access to lower-cost medicines.

But industry observers say the drug importation proposal under review by the administration is squarely aimed at Florida — the most populous swing state in the November election. Trump’s support of the idea initially came at the urging of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a close Republican ally.
