A surveillance camera recorded the person who vandalized a 9/11 memorial in Greenville, South Carolina, according to the Greenville County Sheriff's Office. The suspect has not been identified, but a description of both him and his vehicle were released Monday. Greenville is about 100 miles northwest of Columbia. "Investigators have obtained video ... that depicts what is believed to be a white male pulling up to Upstate Granite Solutions at around 7:30 a.m. ... in a gray SUV," the department said in a release. “The subject, wearing a dark hat, white shirt and dark pants, gets out (and) writes ...
Former President Donald Trump repeatedly blasted out statements on the Arizona audit after the Cyber Ninjas announced that he had not only lost Maricopa County, but lost by an even larger margin than was announced in November.
Fox News reporter Bret Baier said the audit "confirms that President Biden's win in the county and the state was, in fact, a win."
This, of course, was not the first time the network had called the state for Biden. On election night, Fox News projected that Biden had won Arizona, reportedly resulting in Trump attempting to get them to retract their projection. Trump has also publicly complained about Fox calling the state for Biden.

On Friday, Trump claimed that the audit proved he'd been robbed during the 2020 election, when in reality it did nothing of the sort.
"It is not even believable the dishonesty of the Fake News Media on the Arizona Audit results, which shows incomprehensible Fraud at an Election Changing level, many times more votes than is needed. The Fake News Media refuses to write the facts, thereby being complicit in the Crime of the Century," Trump argued, even though none of the claims were true.
He went on to instruct his supporters to ignore reality before calling for a legally irrelevant response.
"They are so dishonest, but Patriots know the truth! Arizona must immediately decertify their 2020 Presidential Election Results," he wrote.
Unable to post to Twitter following the January 6th insurrection, Trump fired off another statement only four minutes later.
"Massive fraud was found in the Arizona Forensic Audit, sometimes referred to as 'Fraudit.' The numbers are Election Changing!" Trump wrote, bizarrely using the term critics have used to ridicule the Cyber Ninjas.
Another email was sent only eight minutes later.
"I will be discussing the winning results of the Arizona Forensic Audit, which will show 44,000 possibly illegal ballots cast, tomorrow at the Great State of Georgia rally, which will be packed!" he said.
Unlike Trump, Maricopa County is allowed to post on Twitter and debunked many of the conspiracy theories being pushed.
On Friday, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported that former President Donald Trump is vowing to stop the House GOP and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) from fundraising for members who voted to impeach him for the January 6 attack.
"Trump, in an interview on The John Fredericks Radio Show, vowed to make sure that [John] Katko and four other House Republicans who voted for impeachment are cut off from future financial support from McCarthy's committee," reported Mark Weiner. "'I'm going to see who he's funding,' Trump said of McCarthy, 'and if he is, I'll stop the whole deal. I'll stop it.'"
Trump has been telegraphing his intent to seek political revenge on this group of Republicans for weeks. This conflicts with McCarthy's goal of winning control of the House in 2022, for which he would only need five seats.
"McCarthy's joint fundraising committee has supported five of the 10 Republicans who voted for impeachment. In addition to Katko, the others are GOP Reps. Peter Meijer of Michigan, David Valadao of California, Fred Upton of Michigan and Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington," said the report. "'Everybody other than one – Katko in New York, he's not popular, and I think he'll de districted out – but there's a primary for every one of them,' Trump told Fredericks."

Ivermectin believers have become 'radicalized' and now advocate 'inhaling food-grade hydrogen peroxide': reporter
Believers in treating COVID-19 with ivermectin have reportedly branched out in terms of their recommended treatments for the virus, which now include inhaling food-grade hydrogen peroxide.
NBC News reporter Ben Collins, who follows multiple pro-ivermectin and anti-vaccine Facebook groups, writes on Twitter that many of these groups have now become "radicalized" and are pushing for even more exotic remedies for COVID-19.
The problem these groups are encountering, writes Collins, is that their followers have quickly learned that ivermectin alone won't do the trick.
"So," writes Collins. "They developed a makeshift 'protocol.'"
And what does this "protocol" entail?
Much of it, notes Collins, seems to be made up on the fly.
"Obviously, keep taking the ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, the ivermectin groups say," writes Collins. "But also gargle iodine. Buy a nebulizer and inhale food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Anything but the vaccine."
As the Washington Post reported on Thursday, doctors are warning against treating COVID-19 by inhaling hydrogen peroxide.
"Hydrogen peroxide is an antiseptic more commonly used for minor cuts, burns and scrapes," the Post noted. "It is also used as a whitener in some toothpastes, and as a common household cleaning agent. But it can be poisonous to humans if swallowed in strong enough concentrations."
