Meet Charlie Gard. He’s a 10-month-old baby from London who was born with infantile onset encephalomyopathy mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome (MDDS). Thanks to the British state, it’s possible he’ll be dead by the time you finish reading this. That isn’t me adopting the scare tactics of those 1990s-era cigarette commercials: Charlie really is scheduled to be…
Charlotte family in shock after conservative neighbor targets them with Nazi sign – then gives ‘wild excuse’ to cops
A North Carolina man found a sign denouncing him as a Nazi after he placed a "Black Lives Matter" flag outside his home.
The Arsley man, who asked to remain anonymous in media accounts, said his doorbell camera recorded video of a neighbor placing the sign in his yard Saturday around noon that read, "Seig heil DNC Nazi voter lives here," after the homeowner displayed an "In This House We Believe" flag, reported WCCB-TV.
"Science is real, Black lives matter, no human is illegal, women's rights are human rights, love is love," the man said, "and that's what it says on it."
"Really, we're lost for words," the man added. "When I showed her the video that night, I was like, can you believe this is happening? We both didn't know what to say, we were baffled the rest of the night. My wife is handicapped and Jewish, and she don't even want me to leave the house now."
The man called the police on Sunday, and he said the neighbor approached and lied about what had happened.
"He came out and talked with the cop a little bit, where he came up with this wild excuse of saying that his banner had got tore up and he saw the person who did it, and he thought it was perhaps my house," the man said.
But he said the neighbor's banner remains intact, and he said the other man has his own doorbell camera that would have recorded any evidence of tampering.
"It's a little scary just in that there's somebody living a couple houses down that has this weird view," the man said.
Legal expert blasts GOP as ‘a pathetic and dangerous cult’ for whipping votes against Bannon criminal referral
House GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) announced on Thursday that the Republican caucus would whip votes against holding Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon in contempt for refusing to cooperative with the congressional investigation of the Capitol riot.
On Tuesday, the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol unanimously voted for a criminal referral of Bannon to the Department of Justice, setting up a floor vote.
"House GOP leaders are recommending a 'no' vote on the criminal contempt referral for Bannon, Scalise announced in conference this morning, per a source in the room. Not the same as a formal whip against the resolution, but it still shows GOP leaders leaning in hard against it," CNN's Melanie Zanona reported.
Harvard Law professor emeritus Laurence Tribe said the decision was not a surprise.
"No surprise there. Until the GOP becomes a genuine political party again and not just a pathetic and dangerous cult, it will continue to vote 'no' on every effort to restore truth and to prevent another coup and insurrection," Tribe said.

A Texas paramedic with a history of complaints against him is on administrative leave after he was seen on video kicking a homeless man in the head.
The Dallas Fire-Rescue Department released video this week from 2019 of paramedic Brad Cox telling police that he believed the homeless man had started a grass fire.
Video recorded on a police officer's body camera shows Cox telling the homeless man to get up before kicking him in the head. The video was obtained by WFAA.
In addition to being a paramedic, Cox is a trained MMA fighter who was wearing a fireman's boot at the time of the assault.
"Get up again," Cox told the homeless man after kicking him.
After the suspect rose to his feet, he was hit with an MMA-style punch by Cox.
Internal police documents showed that the homeless man was left with "a black eye to his right eye, bloody nose, multiple fractures to his face and a swollen right ankle."
Cox was cleared of any wrongdoing after an investigation by the Dallas Police Department.
The homeless man was identified as Kyle Vess. He is now suing Cox and the city of Dallas.
It's not the first time that complaints have been lodged against the paramedic.
Cox received 12 months probation in 2016 for "falsifying a report to cover up his failure to render aid" to a man who had been robbed. The man later died a day later due to a slow brain bleed caused by the attack.
