Disgraced CBS Boss Les Moonves Destroyed Evidence In Failed Sexual Misconduct Cover-Up Scheme – Breitbart

Disgraced CBS chief executive Les Moonves destroyed scores of evidence and lied to investigators conducting a probe into multiple allegations against him, ranging from sexual harassment to rape.

Les Moonves “engaged in multiple acts of serious nonconsensual sexual misconduct in and outside of the workplace, both before and after he came to CBS in 1995,” says a report, according to the New York Times.

The 59-page report, prepared by outside lawyers hired by CBS, said Moonves was “evasive and untruthful at times and to have deliberately lied about and minimized the extent of his sexual misconduct.”

Moonves – who joined CBS in 1995 and helped make it America’s most watch network, helping to shepherd hit TV shows like Survivor, How I Met Your Mother, and Big Bang Theory – was first accused in July of sexual misconduct by six women, dating back two decades…

“They Will Eat You Raw”: African Island Home To Super Aggressive ‘Monster’ Chimps Released From U.S. Lab – The Sun

This is the secret African island inhabited by super aggressive “monster” chimps all freed from a U.S. testing laboratory. The apes – who are infected with contagious diseases – were abandoned on the Liberian river island after being released by their captors.

The jungle wilderness – known to locals as ‘Monkey Island’ – is now home to more than 60 chimps who are notoriously protective of its shores. Many of the animals are said to be “super aggressive”and those living nearby are terrified to go there for fear of being attacked.

Only a select few locals – who regularly take the apes much-needed food – dare approach the real life ‘Planet of the Apes’ and, even then, most never get out of their boats. Fool-hardy tourists who have paid local fishermen to take them near the island – on the Farmington River – are pelted with mangoes by the territorial chimps.

To some, the apes even have a monster-like reputation and have sparked bizarre rumours they will attack and even EAT those who set foot on the land…

Brexit Leader Nigel Farage Quits UKIP, The Party He Led For Nearly A Decade – Breitbart
.

.
Brexit leader and President Trump confidant Nigel Farage has announced he is leaving the UK Independence Party (UKIP), the British political force he led on-and-off for nearly a decade over decisions by its new leader Gerrard Batten.

Announcing his departure on his LBC talk radio slot Tuesday evening, Mr Farage reflected on his time in UKIP which he said he had joined in 1992 when it was known as the Anti Federalist League.

Calling current leader Gerard Batten’s decision to bring English Defence League founder and street organiser Tommy Robinson into the party “catastrophic”, Mr Farage said of the work he had done as leader to see that UKIP discussed difficult topics without straying into extremism…

Apple CEO Who Supported Lying Felon For President Says Not Banning People From Company’s Platforms Who Violate “Our Morality” Is “A Sin” – CNS

Apple CEO Tim Cook, who is openly gay and supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, defended the banning of certain speech and news media on Apple platforms when they violate the “values” of the company. He added that to not ban what is “wrong” is irresponsible and “a sin.”

However, as with Facebook, Apple leader Cook did not define what he termed “those who seek to push hate, division, and violence,” leaving the door open for a wide swath of future censorship and banning of ideas and voices that Cook doesn’t like.

Cook made his remarks in New York City on Dec. 3 at an event sponsored by the liberal Anti-Defamation League, which presented Cook with the “Courage Against Hate” award.

When it comes to working in the technological arena, “perhaps most importantly it drives us not to be bystanders as hate tries to make its headquarters in the digital world,” said Cook. “At Apple, we believe that technology needs to have a clear point of view on this challenge,” he said…

Urban Meyer Retiring As Ohio State Head Coach After Rose Bowl – Yahoo Sports
.

.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer plans to step down and will coach his final game in the Rose Bowl, sources told Yahoo Sports. A myriad of factors contributed to Meyer’s decision, but sources say foremost among them was his happiness with the state of the Ohio State program he inherited seven years ago.

Meyer, 54, will be replaced by Ryan Day, the 39-year-old offensive coordinator who served as Ohio State’s interim coach earlier this season. The university will announce Day as the permanent replacement on Tuesday, and the team was scheduled to be informed in a meeting early Tuesday morning.

The decision comes at the end of a tumultuous year for Meyer, as he’s battled health issues and a suspension at the start of the season…

Young America’s Foundation Wins Major Victory For Free Speech Against UC Berkeley – Daily Wire

On Monday, Young America’s Foundation won a major victory for free speech, settling a lawsuit it had filed against the University of California, Berkeley: the university will have to pay YAF $70,000 to reimburse attorneys’ fees, rescind the unconstitutional “high-profile speaker policy,” rescind the viewpoint-discriminatory security fee policy, and abolish its heckler’s veto so that protestors will be barred from blocking conservatives from speaking.

It took over a year for YAF to achieve victory. As YAF noted:

No longer can UC Berkeley place a 3:00 p.m. curfew on conservative speech. No longer can UC Berkeley ban advertisements for Young America’s Foundation-sponsored campus lectures.

And no longer can UC Berkeley relegate conservative speakers to remote or inconvenient lecture halls on campus while giving leftist speakers access to preferred locations…

Leftist Douchebag Emmanuel Macron Blinks, Suspends Fake Global Warming Tax In Face Of ‘Yellow Vest’ Riots – Zero Hedge
.

.
With his popularity rating at record lows (recent polls put it at around 26%, on par with Hollande), his capital city burning and the populists he defeated during his stunning electoral victory last year making serious electoral inroads, French President Emmanuel Macron finally caved, and on Tuesday ordered a six month suspension of planned ‘fuel taxes’ which spurred widespread and destructive protests across France over the past three weeks.

After reportedly weighing declaring a state of emergency that would have cleared the way for an unprecedented crackdown on dissent, Macron decided that such measures would only intensify the popular opposition to his government.

And according to Reuters, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has declared a suspension of the staggeringly unpopular tax…

NFL Ad Revenue Crashes Due To 2017 Ratings Decline Over Anti-American Kneeling – Breitbart

The National Football League’s 2018 ad revenue has sharply declined due to the crashing television ratings the league suffered in 2016 and 2017, according to reports.

The NFL’s TV ratings suffered a precipitous loss over the previous two seasons, with the 2016-2017 numbers down 10 percent. TV ad pricing is based on previous ratings periods, and so these declines seriously cut into the ad prices that the league could charge for the 2018 TV season.

Because of the bad numbers from last season, ad revenue fell 19 percent in the first two months of the 2018 season, Bloomberg reported.

“The effects of the lower audiences last year are spilling into this season,” said James Fennessy, chief executive officer of advertising research firm Standard Media Index.

There is a spot of good news for the league’s revenue for next year, though. Thus far this season, with the player protests during the national anthem fading, the TV ratings slide finally stabilized and in some cases have even seen modest gains…

Deep-State Assclown Robert Mueller Withheld “Details That Would Exonerate The President” Of Having Kremlin Backchannel – Zero Hedge
.

.
It appears that special counsel Robert Mueller withheld key information in its plea deal with Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, which would exonerate Trump and undermine the entire purpose of the special counsel, according to Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations.

Cohen pleaded guilty last week to lying to the Senate intelligence committee in 2017 about the Trump Organization’s plans to build a Trump Tower in Moscow – telling them under oath that negotiations he was conducting ended five months sooner than they actually did.

Mueller, however, in his nine-page charging document filed with the court seen by Capitol Hill sources, failed to include the fact that Cohen had no direct contacts at the Kremlin – which undercuts any notion that the Trump campaign had a “backchannel” to Putin…

Over 1,400 Earthquakes Have Rattled Alaska Over The Past 3 Days – Washington Standard

The shaking in Alaska still hasn’t stopped, and that has many residents wondering if the worst is still yet to come. Friday’s magnitude 7.0 earthquake could be felt 400 miles away from Anchorage, and it was the most destructive quake that the city has experienced since 1964.

But those living in the region can’t really shift into recovery mode yet because the ground continues to shake. In fact, it is being reported that there have been more than 1,400 aftershocks that have been recorded so far.

Since Friday’s tremor, the strongest to strike The Last Frontier since a 7.9 in the remote Rat Islands in 2014, the U.S. Geological Survey has recorded 166 aftershocks of magnitude 3.0 or higher around Anchorage as of 4:50 p.m. PST Sunday, USGS geophysicist Brad Aagaard told USA TODAY. Earthquakes of 3 or higher are strong enough to be felt.

There have been hundreds of smaller disturbances: 1,406 aftershocks of at least magnitude 1.0.

None of the news reports that I have found include aftershocks under magnitude 1.0…

Denmark To Isolate Returning Jihadists, Criminal Migrants On Deserted Island – Sputmik News

While the right-wing Danish People’s Party vigorously celebrated the decision, it was also reported that the island off Copenhagen’s coast will first have to the cleared of swine fever and other dangerous diseases before the new inhabitants are sent there.

Criminal immigrants whom Denmark is unable to expel from the country will be placed on a deserted island in Stege Bay south of the Danish capital, the tabloid newspaper BT reported.

The decision came after budget negotiations with the right-wing Danish People’s Party, who wholeheartedly welcomed the message.

According to Danish Finance Minister Kristian Jensen of the liberal-conservative Venstre party, criminal foreigners slated to be expelled from Denmark will in the future be placed on the uninhabited island of Lindholm, located in the south-eastern part of the country, about 80 kilometres south of Copenhagen, where staff from the Prison and Probation Service also will be stationed…

Dow Rises 288 Points On U.S.-China Trade Ceasefire – WXMI

.
The ceasefire between the United States and China has set off a celebration on Wall Street. The Dow climbed 288 points, or 1.1%, on Monday. It was up 442 points earlier in the day.

Investors were pleased that China and the United States reached a temporary trade truce. It’s a big relief because the damaging trade war between the world’s two largest economies was set to deepen in January.

The Nasdaq soared 1.5%, while the S&P 500 jumped 1.1%.

“A truce is definitely better than an escalation of hostilities,” Kit Juckes, strategist at Societe Generale, wrote to clients on Monday. Juckes said that even though investors may doubt the substance of the U.S.-China agreement, “this morning’s response reflects relief and a desire to pick up some last-ditch bargains.”…

Luke Sky Walker Arrested In Tennessee – Charlotte Observer

Has the calling of the Dark Side become too strong? Some people thought so after a man named “Luke Sky Walker” was arrested in Elizabethton, Tenn., where police say he violated his probation after a felony theft charge, WJHL reported.

The 21-year-old man, with his short and sandy brown hair, even bears a small resemblance to the young Jedi master Luke Skywalker from the original “Star Wars” films.

But while that Luke escaped with stolen Death Star plans, this Luke was caught in 2017 after police say he helped steal more than 40 road signs in April of 2017, the Elizabethton Star reported. The total value of the signs was about $2,300, according to the paper.

As of Monday, he was still being held without bond at the Carter County Detention Center, according to jail records.

On social media, some poked fun at the man’s unusually cinematic name. But the star reaction (literally) came from Mark Hamill himself…

Conservative author Jerome Corsi on Monday filed a “criminal and ethics complaint” against Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, accusing investigators of trying to bully him into giving “false testimony” against President Trump.

The complaint, which Corsi had threatened for days, is the latest escalation between Mueller’s team and its investigation targets.

The 78-page document, asserting the existence of a “slow-motion coup against the president,” was filed to a range of top law enforcement officials including Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, D.C.’s U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu and the Bar Disciplinary Counsel…

Supreme Court Rejects Request To Hear Enviro-Weenie Challenge To Trump’s Border Wall Construction – Washington Examiner

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a request from a trio of conservation and environmental groups seeking to block construction of President Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The justices declined to consider the groups’ appeal of a lower court ruling that paved the way for the federal government to begin replacing border fencing in two locations and building wall prototypes.

The judge, U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, rejected the groups’ challenge to a 1996 federal law that gives the government the power to waive environmental laws to more quickly begin work on a wall. The Department of Homeland Security sought to sidestep the laws as it pursued the projects related to construction of the border wall.

The conservation groups said the 1996 law violated the Constitution because of the power it granted the federal government…

Leftist Insanity Update: Dick’s Sporting Goods Warns Investors That Decision To Get Rid Of Guns Cost Company Dearly – Daily Wire

Dick’s Sporting Goods is warning investors that its decision to remove certain “assault-style” weapons from its Field & Stream stores cost it dearly and may limit its future gains.

The sporting goods retailer was forced to confront angry shareholders late last week after its stocks tanked more than 4.5% and financial conglomerate J.P. Morgan Chase downgraded Dick’s shares, saying the company was “overweight.”

“Gross margin-driven upside appears less probable given 3Q’s performance, changing comparisons, and rising inventory levels,” an analyst for J.P. Morgan told CNBC. The same analyst noted that same-store sales for Dick’s outlets are expected to grow less than 1% even as the company’s inventory rises…

U.S. Census Bureau: 63 Percent Of Non-Citizens On Welfare – Washington Examiner

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation.

In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it.

The Center for Immigration Studies said in its report that the numbers give support for Trump’s plan to cut non-citizens off welfare from the “public charge” if they want a green card that allows them to legally work in the United States.

“The Trump administration has proposed new ‘public charge’ rules making it harder for prospective immigrants to qualify for lawful permanent residence – green cards – if they use or are likely to use U.S. welfare programs,” said CIS…

A hospital in Ontario, Canada, is being criticised for advertising euthanasia in its urgent care waiting room.

Advertisements for Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD) appear on a large television screen in the William Osler Health System hospital. The same advert is found on the health system website.

Campaigners have hit out at the adverts, saying they normalise deliberate killing, and present euthanasia as a “reasonable and even preferred method of alleviating suffering”.

Wesley Smith, of the Discovery Institute, pointed out that people in hospital waiting rooms are vulnerable to such advertisements, and may be afraid, in pain or depressed…

Trump Demands Stiff Prison Sentence For His Ex-Lawyer Michael Cohen, Accuses Mueller Of Seeking ‘Lies’ From Witnesses – CNBC

An angry President Donald Trump on Monday called for his ex-personal lawyer Michael Cohen to receive a stiff prison sentence for his admitted crimes, as he accused Cohen of making up “stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself.”

Trump in a Twitter tirade also accused special counsel Robert Mueller of seeking “lies” from witnesses about Trump – and praised his longtime associate Roger Stone as having the “guts” to withstand pressure from Mueller’s prosecutors to “make up stories” about the president.

Trump’s latest rants came three days after lawyers for Cohen asked a judge in a court filing to give him no prison time when he is sentenced Dec. 12 in U.S. District Court in Manhattan for charges brought by Mueller and other federal prosecutors.

Cohen theoretically could get up to 70 years in prison if sentenced to consecutive terms for all his crimes. But sentencing guidelines would call for any prison term to be much less than that, in the range of several years…
