    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is now claiming that some financial institutions no longer want to do business with him because he poses a "reputation risk" as he continues to push former President Donald Trump's false claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. On Friday, January 14, Lindell appeared on Steve Bannon's podcast "War Room" where he claimed "Heartland Financial and Minnesota Bank and Trust are attempting to 'de-bank' him over concerns that they could face fallout related to having him as a client," Newsweek reports. During the broadcast, the two right-wing enthusiasts played an audio recording of what they claim was a discussion between Lindell and a banking official. "Just because of our organization saying, 'Well, why are we connected with somebody that could be in the news.' And, not that the FBI is even sniffing and looking, but what if somebody came in and said, 'You know what, we are gonna subpoena all his account records...and then also we make the news,'" the person was reportedly heard saying in the recording. "So it's more of a reputation...

It was a long time coming for the two-time world champion who started amping up his NBA comeback plans in early 2021. Chalmers put some feelers out there last January, but no one picked up on them. One year later and the 35-year-old guard is getting his chance, one that reunites him with Erik Spoelstra and Pat Riley in South Beach. The former second-round pick out of Kansas recently recalled to The Undefeated how everything went down. It started at the AT&T NBA G League Winter Showcase in Las Vegas in December. Chalmers was playing for the Grand Rapids Gold – the G League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets – but Heat assistant general manager Adam Simons was there keeping an eye out for talent. Grand Rapids waived Chalmers on Christmas Eve, according to Marc J. Spears, and then Miami called his father Ronnie who doubles...

    The text message Utah college student Madelyn Allen sent her parents the morning after her alleged kidnapping might be the reason she was found alive.  The 19-year-old Snow College student texted her parents, Jonathan and Taunya Allen, 'I love you' at 7:20 a.m. on December 14. The Allens thought the seemingly out-of-nowhere message was suspicious and contacted their cell phone provider, which traced the text to a small town 87 miles south of Madelyn's college campus, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by People. Her parents, who knew Madelyn did not have regular access to a vehicle, alerted authorities of the cryptic message, igniting the search for the missing teen, the affidavit states.  'I think [the Allens] felt it was a little odd because there wasn't more with it,' Sanpete County Attorney Kevin L. Daniels told People. Madelyn went missing after leaving her dorm room in Ephraim on December 13 to meet a man from an online fetish chatroom and was rescued by the police nearly one week later, on Saturday, in Loa at the home of Brent Brown -...

    The Jerusalem Post has reported that thousands of LGBTQ+ Israelis received text messages saying they “deserve severe punishment, death and deportation” and calling on them to “repent.” The Association for LGBTQ Equality in Israel confirmed the news Monday. “You are LGBT and an apostate. You deserve severe punishment, death and deportation from Israel,” the message read. “Come to Yeshiva Ohr Elhanan in order to repent. We would be glad if you undergo conversion to faith.” According to The Jerusalem Post, “The message included a phone number and a Telegram account to contact and stated that it was sent by Rabbi Chaim Aryeh Hadash, the rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Ohr Elhanan. The rabbi has denied that he has any connection to the message, saying he has never talked about the issue and the issue is not addressed in his yeshiva.” The Agudah and the Havruta organization for LGBTQ+ religious Jewish men invited Hadash to a dialogue with the LGBTQ+ religious Jewish community. They also called in a letter for Hadash to publish a public condemnation of the messages sent in his...

    Steve Helber/AP Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.In June of 2015, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry delivered the kind of speech that candidates for president generally have a difficult time walking back. Speaking to something called the Opportunity and Freedom PAC, he ripped into his rival, Donald Trump, as a “cancer on conservatism” that “must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded.” He was a “sower of discord,” Perry said, who “foments agitation, thrives on division, scapegoats certain elements of society, and offers empty platitudes and promises.” Trump was a “barking carnival act,” and “Trumpism, as he defined it, was a “toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued.” Perry hasn’t always been on the mark in his life. At Texas A&M he once got a D in “Meats.” (It’s actually a hard class. Whatever.) But he was right about Trump! And then, not long after, he endorsed his old rival; took a job in his administration as secretary...
    Yet another example of a Jan. 6 committee member misportraying a text message sent to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows emerged on Friday. Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat, incorrectly described on Tuesday a message to Meadows describing a strategy to overturn the results of the 2020 election as coming from a House lawmaker. Anonymous sources told CNN that it was, as the news outlet put it, "an inadvertent error," and a "Raskin source said the congressman learned of the error this week from CNN and confirmed the mistake with staff." SEAN HANNITY ADDRESSES HIS JAN. 6 TEXT MESSAGE TO MARK MEADOWS Raskin wrote a letter to correct the Congressional Record, according to the report, which noted the Jan. 6 panel declined to comment on the actual author of the text. The congressman cited the text message during debate on holding Meadows in contempt of Congress after he stopped cooperating last week with the panel's investigation into the Capitol riot.

    CNN on Friday reported that former Texas Gov. Rick Perry's phone was used to send what so far has been the most damning text message sent to former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows in the wake of the 2020 presidential election. On November 4th, the day after the election, a text from Perry's phone sent to Meadows recommended taking an "aggressive" plan to stop President Joe Biden from being declared the winner. "Here's an aggressive strategy," the message began. "Why can't Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and other Republican-controlled state houses declare this is B.S. (where conflicts and election not called that night) and just send their own electors to vote." Perry, through a spokesperson, denied sending the text message, although the spokesperson had "no explanation" when asked how the message was sent from the phone of the former Texas governor, who also served as Trump's Secretary of Energy from 2017 through 2019. CNN confirmed with "multiple sources" who had Perry's personal number that the text message did indeed come from Perry's phone. Trump eventually would try a variation of...

                 Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed Congressman Adam Schiff for changing the substance of a text message that he read during a January 6th Committee hearing. Congressman Schiff (D-CA-28) allegedly altered a text message between White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH-04), according to a report from The Federalist. “What a disgrace this sleazeball is. Shifty Adam Schiff is a disgrace to America. What is going to be done about this?” Trump said of Schiff. According to the report, Representative Jordan forwarded the message from Washington attorney and former Department of Defense Inspector General Joseph Schmitz, who authored the words. Furthermore, he seemingly cut parts of the message from the text message: Not only did Schiff lie about the substance of the text message and its source, he even doctored the message and graphic that he displayed on screen during his statement. The full text message, which was forwarded to Meadows from Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on the evening of Monday, Jan. 5, was significantly longer than what Schiff read and put...
    Ohio congressman Jim Jordan has been revealed as the 'lawmaker' who sent a text to Mark Meadows on the eve of the Capitol riot, suggesting a way in which Mike Pence could avoid certifying the November 2020 vote. Jordan, a staunch ally of Donald Trump, confirmed through his spokesman that on January 5 he texted Meadows, Trump's chief of staff, with advice on overturning the election. The text was a three-paragraph summary of a longer legal argument, and had been sent to Jordan by attorney Joseph Schmitz. Jordan then forwarded Schmitz's argument to Meadows. Jim Jordan, congressman for Ohio, confirmed on Wednesday that he had forwarded a text to Mark Meadows suggesting an avenue for Mike Pence to overturn the election Mike Pence is seen on January 6, certifying the results of the November 2020 election - despite pressure from Donald Trump to refuse to do so. Pence told Trump he did not have the authority to overturn the vote Jim Jordan sent the above text to Mark Meadows on January 5. It was a forwarded message, which had been sent...
    The United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack admitted Wednesday that it had doctored a text message cited by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) in his push Monday to hold former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows in contempt. The Federalist’s Sean Davis first reported Wednesday morning that Schiff had manipulated the text message, cutting out the full context and adding punctuation into it, which he falsely implied was authored by a Republican lawmaker. As Breitbart News summarized: One message, which Schiff attributed to a Republican lawmaker, was doctored to read: “On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.” But the original message came from former Department of Defense Inspector General Joseph Schmitz, who had drafted and summarized legal arguments that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) forwarded to Meadows. And Schiff left out the full exchange, which read (emphasis added): On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all the...

    Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity tried to blame the U.S. Capitol attack on 'antifa sympathizers' — while privately acknowledging Donald Trump's supporters were behind it. Fox News hosts are now attempting to claim that their texts to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging then-President Donald Trump to condemn the Jan. 6 Capitol attacks were consistent with their on-air rhetoric about the incident. On Jan. 6, 2021, Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham each promoted the conspiracy theory that leftist protesters — not Trump supporters — were to blame for the riots at the Capitol that left five people dead and hundreds injured. But in their private texts to Meadows, Hannity and Ingraham made it clear they knew the attack was in service to Trump. On Tuesday night, the hosts addressed the texts that were revealed in a congressional hearing by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). For much of the day on Tuesday, Fox ignored the texts and did not inform their viewers of the network's intimate involvement...
    Ivanka Trump has been implicated in the Jan. 6 investigation by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and now calls are being made to see her text messages from that day. The senator told CNN’s Manu Raju that he asked former president Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, then a senior White House adviser, to deliver a message to her father as his supporters violently stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress was set to certify Joe Biden’s election win, reported The Independent. “Sen. Lindsey Graham said he didn’t text with [Mark] Meadows on Jan. 6,” Raju tweeted, “but told me he spoke with Ivanka Trump to deliver a message to her dad. He said he wanted then-President Trump to ‘tell his people to leave.'" Sen.

    The Jan. 6 committee admitted that it changed a text message between former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Rep. Jim Jordan, excluding relevant context about how they wanted then-Vice President Mike Pence to handle electoral votes. “The Select Committee on Monday created and provided Representative Schiff a graphic to use during the business meeting quoting from a text message from ‘a lawmaker’ to Mr. Meadows. The graphic read, ‘On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.' In the graphic, the period at the end of that sentence was added inadvertently. The Select Committee is responsible for and regrets the error,” a spokesman for the select committee said in response to inquiries from the Federalist. The committee cut off half a sentence and paragraphs of further information, then added a period and changed the format so it appeared to be the whole message, the outlet reported.

Adam Schiff (D-CA) appears to have doctored evidence that he cited in Monday evening’s hearing at the January 6 committee, just as Schiff did infamously did during the impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump in 2019. The committee was discussing its motion to recommend that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows be held in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over information over which Trump has exerted executive privilege. (The full House voted to hold Meadows in contempt on Tuesday and referred him to the Department of Justice for prosecution.) The Federalist reports, however, that Schiff doctored text messages he presented to the committee, altering the text and creating the false impression in a visual presentation that he was quoting original text messages rather than fabrications. Sean Davis reports: During a hearing Monday night on the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Adam Schiff claimed to have proof that a member of Congress texted former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to instruct former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020...
    Sean Hannity addressed what he called Rep. Liz Cheney's "weak attempt to smear" him after the Republican lawmaker publicized a text message showing the Fox News host encouraging former President Trump to take stronger action to quell the Capitol riot on Jan. 6th. "Last night, in a weak attempt to smear yours truly, and presumably, President Trump, Congresswoman Cheney presented one of my text messages from January 6th to Mark Meadows," Hannity told viewers in his opening monologue on Tuesday. "I said to Mark Meadows the exact same thing I was saying live on the radio at the time and on TV that night, on January 6th and well beyond January 6th," he continued.  "I’m an honest, straightforward person. I say the same thing in private that I say to all of you." MARK MEADOWS RESPONDS TO JAN. 6TH COMMITTEE VOTE RECOMMENDING CRIMINAL CHARGES The House Jan. 6 committee released a series of texts from the day of the Capitol riot on Monday, including private correspondence between three Fox News hosts and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. The hosts urged Meadows to push Trump to make a forceful statement telling the rioters to...
    Fox News host Laura Ingraham went on the offensive against members of the media, who she says mischaracterized her messaging during the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, as well as Rep. Liz Cheney. She started the segment Tuesday acknowledging Cheney, the vice chairwoman of the Jan. 6 committee, reading aloud on Monday Ingraham's text message to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging him to have former president Donald Trump tell Capitol rioters to go home. 'NO EVIDENCE OF ANY CRIME': TUCKER CARLSON REPORTS ON JAN. 6 TEXTS MEADOWS RECEIVED FROM FOX PERSONALITIES "This sent the left-wing media hacks into spin-and-defame mode. Now of course the regime media was trying to twist this message to try to tar me as a liar, a hypocrite who privately sounded the alarm on Jan. 6 but publicly downplayed it," Ingraham said. "That big lie was peddled by the Washington Post's Aaron Blake, who grossly mischaracterized what I said in an attempt to smear me as some Jan. 6 denier," Ingraham continued. She noted Blake wasn't alone,...
    Laura Ingraham responded to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) reading aloud a text the Fox News host sent to Trump chief-of-staff Mark Meadows on January 6th. Cheney highlighted the tweet during a hearing on Monday of the select committee investigating the storming of the Capitol by Donald Trump supporters that day. “Mark, the president needs to tell people in the Capitol to go home,” Ingraham texted Meadows. “This is hurting all of us. He is destroying his legacy.” She said that Cheney’s actions had “sent left wing media hacks into spin and defame mode.” Ingraham continued, “Now of course the regime media was somehow trying to twist this message to try to tar me as a liar, hypocrite, who privately sounded the alarm on January 6th, but publicly downplayed it.” The Fox News host singled out The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake for having “grossly mischaracterized what I said in an attempt to smear as some January 6th denier.” She added, “But he wasn’t alone.” She also put on blast “CNN’s chief propagandist Brian Stelter,” who claimed Ingraham “pushed over and over...
    ATLANTA — A defiant Mark Meadows joked about his text messages and glad-handed Republicans as the House of Representatives debated whether to hold him in criminal contempt of Congress for his refusal to cooperate with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. “The enemy means ... for evil. He will make it good. He will turn it good,” Meadows said in a keynote speech at a dinner in Atlanta, paraphrasing a verse in Genesis. “I say that because tonight allows for it. The Democrats are wanting to send a clear message that not only should I be referred for criminal contempt but that anybody that is a conservative and supported Donald Trump should be ashamed. They’re not going to intimidate me.” The event marked the launch of a state legislative Freedom Caucus network. More than 200 political operatives and state lawmakers from 28 states gave Meadows, a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus and its former chairman, a standing ovation. The White House chief of staff under former President Donald Trump cracked a...
    On Tuesday, Sean Hannity addressed the fact that during 1 1/6 committee hearing, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) read aloud a text the Fox News host sent to Trump chief of-staff Mark Meadows during the Capitol riot. Cheney read the text on Monday, just a couple of hours before Hannity interviewed Meadows on his show, but neither broached the subject. Hannity discussed the matter on his radio show Tuesday afternoon, and later on Fox News. “Now, last night in a weak attempt to smear yours truly and presumably I guess President Trump,” said Hannity, “Congresswoman Cheney presented one of my text messages from January 6th to Mark Meadows. Surprise, surprise, surprise: I said to Mark Meadows the exact same thing I was saying live on the radio at that time and on TV that night on January 6th and well beyond January 6th. And by the way, where is the outrage in the media over my private text messages being released again publicly? Do we believe in privacy in this country? Apparently not.” Hannity called himself “an honest and straightforward person. I...
    Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) criticized Mark Meadows for refusing to cooperate with the House select committee on January 6th, even with all of his recent, public comments and disclosures. Schiff spoke to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday after the committee moved to charge the former Donald Trump chief of staff with contempt of Congress over his non-compliance. The interview gravitated around the communications and documents that Meadows did provide to the committee, including the text messages he got from the former president’s allies begging for his intervention in the storming of the U.S. Capitol. As Schiff argued that the texts “exposed the hypocrisy” of Trumpworld’s attempts to downplay the riot, he said it also “helps make the case so clear that Meadows should be held in criminal contempt for refusing to testify.” If he is going to provide these messages — which he and his counsel acknowledged, there is nothing privileged about — how can he now claim he can’t come in and testify about those messages? How can he go on Fox News and do interviews and say ‘I...
    Sean Hannity spoke with former Trump chief-of-staff Mark Meadows shortly after the January 6th committee voted to recommend criminal contempt charges against Meadows. While the two did discuss the vote, neither mentioned that the committee had just revealed that the Fox News host texted Meadows during the riot. “Can he make a statement, ask people to leave the Capitol,” Hannity texted Meadows on January 6th as violence raged on. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) read the text during the hearing. The committee also revealed that Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Brian Kilmeade texted Meadows that day asking the president to take action. The next never came up during a nearly eight-minute segment that featured Meadows and a discussion of the January 6th committee and the criminal contempt vote affecting Meadows. “First, I guess I’ll get your reaction to the January 6 vote – nine [to] zero – that will now go before the House, but we already know this is a predetermined outcome,” said Hannity. “Obviously it’s disappointing, but not surprising,” Meadows replied. “And let’s be clear about this, Sean....

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Police say an anonymous text message about a threat at Kennedy High School in Sacramento has prompted an extra police presence on campus Wednesday. Exactly what was stated in the text message is unclear, but Sacramento police say it was circulated between students. Officers say they have not found credible information about the threats. Still, as a precaution, police say there will be extra officers at Kennedy High for the remainder of the school day.
    Sean Gallup/Getty Images Finland‘s 36-year-old prime minister went clubbing until 4 a.m. without her work phone and missed a text message that told her to quarantine. Sanna Marin, who is the head of the Finnish government (whereas the president is the most powerful and is the head of state), was seen partying in the capital city of Helsinki on Saturday. She left her work phone at home, and missed a text message telling her to quarantine because Finnish Foreign Minister Pekka Haavisto tested positive for the coronavirus hours earlier. After she saw the text message on Sunday morning, Marin was tested and got a negative result. Nonetheless, in a Facebook post (original written in Finnish embedded below), she explained the situation and apologized: On Saturday evening my secretary of state called me on the parliament’s work phone and told me about the corona infection by Minister Pekka Haavisto. At the same time, he said that there will be no special measures on the matter and no ministers will be quarantined because everyone has two vaccines and full vaccine protection. I...
              more   Christmas shoppers across the country, including Tennessee, are being targeted by criminals using a new, sophisticated scam involving text messages that appear to be advertising sales and other bargains from well-known stores, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) warned Thursday. Unsuspecting shoppers receive a text with an offer to participate in a survey about a recent Black Friday shopping experience. In exchange, the consumer receives valuable coupon, product, or gift card to a well-known store. The survey is typically shown as a limited-time offer, which entices consumers to fill out the survey as soon as they receive it. Instead, shoppers are taken to a third-party website that will ask for personal information. The BBB said malware could also be downloaded onto the device taking the survey, which could give scammers even more access to personal information. Dubbed a “phishing” scam, the website offered ways for consumers to spot these types of traps. The BBB advised shoppers to be aware of phony text messages, by looking at the number or email that the message is sent from. “Before you get too...

    A group of organizers for the 'Save America' rally that played out before the Capitol riot were ensconced in the Willard Hotel Jan. 6th – ordering booze and charcuterie as Capitol police clashed with rioters, leaked group text messages reveal. The mother-daughter team of Amy Kremer and Kylie Jane Kremer helped organize the Women for America First Save America on Jan. 6th. Each have been subpoenaed by the House select Jan. 6th committee. Amy Kremer, who was also a founder of the Tea Party movement, put in for fancy hors d-oeuvres on the evening of the 6th – in a replay of the prior night's noshing at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel near the White House.  Group chat messages viewed by Rolling Stone recount her party planning as beleaguered Capitol Police countered hundreds of protesters and rioters. Sources told the publication attendees at the Willard event were also drinking champagne in the hotel suite that night. But while the organizers put in for cured meats on their own initiative, the group texts also appear to show deference to the White House on the planning...
