    CV NEWS FEED // A judge this month granted Prisha Mosley’s lawsuit to proceed against the doctors who encouraged her to undergo life-altering “transgender” surgeries at 16. The lawsuit is the first of its kind that a judge has granted to proceed, according to Mosley’s lawyer. “This is the first substantive ruling we are aware of in which a Court has held that a detransitioner’s case against her health care professionals is legally viable,” Mosley’s lawyer Josh Payne stated, according to a May 16 FOX News article. “We are honored to represent Prisha as she pursues justice for herself and...

    2020 was just the appetizer. Every time I hear a Democrat say the vote in November is about saving democracy, I cringe. Yet, I have to agree-democracy is at risk. Not only is democracy at risk, but so is the Republic. From Democrats. In the face of polls seeing Donald Trump hammering Joe Biden, democrats are feverishly working to completely destroy voter integrity laws and open the doors for voting by all the illegal aliens being imported into the country. Early in his Presidency, Joe Biden set the corruption machine in motion by using taxpayer dollars to register democrat voters....

    One of America's most prestigious cancer hospitals is embroiled in a bullying scandal that has culminated in staff members requiring emergency mental health treatment, DailyMail.com can reveal.

So severe is the situation, a top scientist at the center is currently battling a lawsuit over allegations that she plagiarized research conducted at the institution. Daily Mail has learned of staggering incidences of staff maltreatment - including verbal abuse, including threatening...

    Red State. ^ | April 29, 2024 | Jennifer Van Laar
    LA County Assistant DA Diana Teran, who oversaw George Gascón's efforts to prosecute law enforcement officers instead of criminals and to release thousands of felons from prison early, was arrested Saturday on 11 felony charges related to the "unauthorized use of data from confidential, statutorily-protected peace officer files." Like many alleged felons in Los Angeles County, Teran was out on bail less than an hour after her arrest. Unlike many alleged felons in Los Angeles County, the Diana Teran scandal has the potential to topple the county's power structure, or to put a severe dent in it. That potential exists...

    Ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell will join her beleaguered husband Christian Horner at the Bahrain Grand Prix today in a show of solidarity after leaked text messages rocked Formula One. Red Bull F1 boss Christian Horner broke cover at the Grand Prix on Saturday morning with no sign of his wife Geri Halliwell after his wife found out the texts were leaked as she was flying in a private jet. Halliwell, 51, and her husband, 50, had breathed a collective sigh of relief on Wednesday when Red Bull cleared Horner of inappropriate behaviour allegations which were made by a female employee....

    Tyler Boebert "supposedly made a sex tape" with a fellow suspect who was a female minor, according to an affidavit following his arrest. Boebert, the adult son of Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, was arrested on February 27 by the Rifle Police Department. He is charged on 22 counts, which include vehicle tresspass, property thefts and criminal possession of ID documents. None of the charges relate to the purported sex tape, which was alluded to by another minor police quoted in the affidavit. The same minor said the tape was sent around to people they knew...

    Breitbart ^ | 02/26/2024 | ILDEFONSO ORTIZ and BRANDON DARBY
    A doxing scandal started by Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador led to the additional doxing of two presidential candidates. The president also admitted that he didn’t care if he broke the law by starting the controversy. In the most recent turn of events, Lopez Obrador criticized YouTube for taking down the video of his morning news conference where the doxing took place. The politician claimed YouTube was censoring him and being authoritarian. As Breitbart Texas initially reported, the issue began last week when Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador used one of his morning news conferences to criticize and...

    Below is my column in The Hill on the trouble brewing at CBS over the seizure of the files of acclaimed investigative reporter Catherine Herridge. The column broke the story on the uproar over not just her being laid off but her being locked out from her files. I am now hearing from CBS sources that the network is moving toward a resolution to turn over the files after the outcry. However, the concerns over Herridge’s firing and the network’s handling of her confidential notes continues to draw fire from journalists and commentators. The union issued a statement (below) after...
  • The Missing Crossfire Hurricane Binder: President Trump Demanded its Contents Be Released – The FBI Wants It Hidden from the American Public and Will Do Anything to Prevent It’s Release

    President Trump declassified a binder on January 19th, 2021.The now infamous binder contains hundreds of pages about the Crossfire Hurricane scandal. It contains damaging information about the corrupt actors involved in our government. Two different DOJ Attorney General’s have defied President Trump’s direct lawful order to publish the binder in the Federal Register. It’s been over three years now, and the DOJ continues to defy the presidential order and every FOIA request to make it public. Can we now raid the homes of former acting AG Monty Wilkinson, and current AG Merrick Garland? (snip) Sperry also tweeted a list of...

    CNN — Why doesn’t scandal seem to matter anymore? According to one definition in Merriam-Webster, a scandal is a “circumstance or action that offends propriety or established moral conceptions or disgraces those associated with it.” Yet scandal in American politics doesn’t necessarily lead to disgrace (or at least disqualification) anymore. Former President Donald Trump tested this question more than any other elected official in modern times. As president, Trump experienced more moments that would traditionally be defined as a scandal than almost any other high official in recent memory, arguably surpassing his notorious predecessor, Richard Nixon. What was so notable...

    Judge Scott McAfee on Monday said Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis may be disqualified from Trump’s RICO case over her improper relationship with top Trump prosecutor Nathan Wade. The judge also said Thursday’s evidentiary hearing on alleged misconduct ‘must occur.’ “I think it’s clear that disqualification can occur if evidence is produced demonstrating an actual conflict or the appearance of one,” Judge McAfee said in Monday’s hearing. “The state has admitted a relationship existed. And so what remains to be proven is the existence and extent of any financial benefit, again if there even was one. And so because...

    We've had a couple of days to digest that damning classified documents investigation report and the Biden administration's disaster of a response to it. This morning I did some browsing around to try to determine where the dust is settling in terms of the White House, the Democrats, the GOP, the media, and even foreign countries. Karen already picked apart what the Biden team's response has been thus far and what will likely happen going forward. That will mostly be nothing aside from optics and cosmetic attempts (in some cases literally) at getting people to forget about it and go...

    Fulton County DA Fani Willis screws the pooch! But refuses to step aside Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis says she has no plans to step down from the Georgia election subversion case over allegations she’s having an affair with her lead prosecutor to whom she has paid $650,000 in two years. Her decision is driven in part over concern that her departure would effectively end the case against Donald Trump and his multiple defendants. Instead, Willis is preparing to counter arguments from Trump and other co-defendants, not by necessarily disputing claims about the relationship but by arguing that defense...
  • Fani Willis uses legal filing to take a VERY personal shot at the lawyer who exposed her torrid affair with special prosecutor in Georgia Trump case - who then alleges the couple 'cohabitated' in an AirBNB 'safe house'

    Fulton Count Georgia DA Fani Willis used a legal filing where she defended her 'personal' relationship with a special prosecutor on her team to hit directly at the lawyer for a Trump codefendant who exposed her affair. Willis admitted to the stunning affair with special prosecutor Nathan Wade in her 176-page filing Friday, saying it posed no conflict with her role overseeing the case against Trump and associates on racketeering charges. But in between passages making dry legal arguments, she included a color picture of the lawyer who blew the whistle on her affair. She also dug up the lawyer's...

    **SNIP** In a filing from Friday, Willis acknowledged the past relationship with Wade, but denied that it presented any conflict of interest on her part, writing that "any personal relationship among members of the prosecution team does not amount to a disqualifying conflict of interest or otherwise harm a criminal defendant." "Defendants have done nothing to establish an actual conflict of interest, nor have they shown that, in the handling of the case, District Attorney Willis or Special Prosecutor Wade have acted out of any personal or financial motivation," the filing reads, later adding that, "District Attorney Willis has no...

    Harvard University’s chief diversity and inclusion officer has been hit with dozens of plagiarism allegations tied to her academic work — including one claim she failed to properly cite her own husband’s study. The Ivy League school was handed an anonymous complaint on Monday listing at least 40 examples of alleged plagiarism by Sherri Ann Charleston dating back to 2009 — a decade before she joined Harvard, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The allegations, which include failing to properly cite other scholars’ work and not referencing them in footnotes, come just weeks after Harvard University president Claudine Gay resigned from...

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and special prosecutor Nathan Wade are expected to be subpoenaed due to allegations of an affair and inappropriate financial ties. These allegations have arisen in the context of a case against Donald Trump and his co-defendants. The case will have a hearing to address these claims, including conflicts of interest and mishandling of public money. “I think the real issue here is not this relationship. I think it’s more about the impropriety of having him on the team and having him present this to the grand jury and the conflict of interest in the...

    President Trump is now seeking to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the Georgia RICO case. Trump joined his co-defendant Michael Roman’s effort to disqualify Fani Willis over her illicit affair with a top prosecutor she hired and financially benefitted from. As previously reported, Fani Willis had an ‘improper’ romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, a top Trump prosecutor in her office. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fani Willis “financially benefited” from a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, a top prosecutor she hired to go after President Trump. The motion was filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County...
