The owners of a gym that made national headlines after it opened in defiance of Gov. Phil Murphy COVID-19 lockdown were dealt a blow in their legal fight to convince the courts that shuttering their place of business was unconstitutional. In a decision reached during hearing held over Zoom Friday, U.S. District Judge Robert B. Kugler denied the request of the owners of Atilis Gym of Bellmawr to open via a temporary restraining order as they continued litigation with the state.In a federal lawsuit filed last month, attorneys for the gym claimed Gov. Phil Murphy “arbitrarily” deemed some businesses ...
'Newt has lost it': Jan. 6 committee member confused by Gingrich's 'weird' idea the US will be overthrown
Speaking to CNN's Jim Acosta, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) responded to the "weird" comments from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA). On Saturday, he told the Fox network that members of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack are somehow going to be courted off to prison when the GOP takes over in 2022. Gingrich never quite explained what crimes he thinks the officials committed and on what charge they'd be arrested, but he firmly believes it will happen. If the members were arrested without a crime, as Gingrich suggests, Lofgren explained it would mean the U.S. has fallen.
"That's just bizarre," said Lofgren. "I think Newt has really lost it. You know, it leaves me speechless. I mean, unless he is assuming that the government does get overthrown and there's no system of justice, just random arrests. I mean, it's just a bizarre statement. and he looks terrible."
She recalled Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) saying Trump bore responsibility for the attack along with House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and others.
"We are uncovering a plot, it looks like, to overturn the peaceful transfer of power, to essentially overturn our system of government," she continued. "I think that's pretty serious. And I think most Americans would agree. We're going to do our job despite bizarre threats such as Newt Gingrich's weird comments. And we're going to get all the information. And we're going to make it known to the American people. And we're going to look at what could be changed legislatively. We're a legislative committee. We're not going after anybody. We're going after the truth. And it will give us some insight into laws that should be changed, perhaps, for example, the electoral count act that Liz Cheney and I are working on. I personally think that we should revisit the elements of the Insurrection Act that the former president threatened to use repeatedly for no reason that was legitimate. There are a lot of things that I think we need to tighten up, to protect our law and order society, and to avoid the kind of chaos that we saw in the prior administration."

Auschwitz Memorial slaps down RFK Jr’s anti-vax rant that Anne Frank didn't have it as bad as the US today
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. spoke to the crowd of anti-vaccine activists who rallied at the Lincoln Memorial and explained how bad life is for those refusing to get vaccinated.
According to the notoriously anti-vaccine Kennedy, today in the United States is worse than what people experienced in Nazi Germany as people were being shipped off to their deaths. Kennedy specifically cited Anne Frank, the teenage girl who penned a diary about her experience hiding through the occupation. She was ultimately captured and sent to a concentration camp where she died. In the final year of her life, close friends Hanneli Goslar and Nanette Blitz, who survived the war, told authors of a Frank book that she was "bald, emaciated, and shivering." She is thought to have died from typhoid fever.
Kennedy said that Frank was lucky because at least she could hide during the Holocaust but that people today can't hide due to 5G and Bill Gates.
"Even in Hitler's Germany, you could hide in the attic like Anne Frank did."
It's the same argument that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has also made.
The Auschwitz Memorial Museum responded to the video saying that RFK Jr. is "exploiting the tragedy of people who suffered, were humiliated, tortured and murdered by the totalitarian regime of Nazi Germany - including children like Anne Frank - in a debate about vaccines and limitations during [a] global pandemic is a sad symptom of moral and intellectual decay."

At the antivaxx rally in DC, RFK Jr. says that in the future "none of us can run and none of us can hide" because of Bill Gates' satellites and also 5G, unlike... the Holocaust.\n\n"Even in Hitler's Germany, you could hide in the attic like Anne Frank did."pic.twitter.com/bRtmDBTxZl— Ben Collins (@Ben Collins) 1642967180
The life of one man has changed a lot after he was arrested for his actions at the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. electoral process at the Capitol. In fact, according to one court filing, his life seems like it's over.
He's lost clients and investment partnerships, he was banned from working at Lyft and from Airbnb, he has endured "harassment" from the internet, but he's being mocked the most for complaining that he lost his TSA-precheck pass due to the arrest.
It's unclear how many Lyft drivers have been banned but at least one email about it has been emailed and posted on the site Parler.

TSA makes it clear on their website that Americans can be removed or suspended from the service "if you commit certain violations of federal security regulations, such as refusal to wear a mask in U.S. transportation systems covered by the January 31, 2021 Security Directive and subsequent amendments, assault, threat, intimidation, or interference with flight crew, physical or sexual assault or threat of physical or sexual assault of any individual on an aircraft, interference with security operations, access control violations, providing false or fraudulent documents, making a bomb threat, or bringing a firearm, explosive, or other prohibited item to an airport or onboard an aircraft, you are denied expedited screening for a period of time."
He was ridiculed heavily for the complaint.
NO MORE TSA PRE-CHECK? HOW CAN HE GO ON?https://twitter.com/MacFarlaneNews/status/1485350877129056261\u00a0\u2026— Rachel Vindman (@Rachel Vindman) 1642971314
