A compromise defense policy bill released Tuesday night would end the Pentagon’s policy requiring troops to receive the Covid vaccine — and kicking out those troops who refuse it — delivering a win to Republicans who railed against the policy. A final version of the National Defense Authorization Act included the measure after conservatives threatened to hold up the bill to curtail the vaccine mandate. The policy became a point of contention in talks in recent days between Democratic and Republican leaders over the bill. The measure defies the wishes of both the Pentagon and the White House,

Matt Taibbi, who authored the first release of the infamous “Twitter Files,” is back for round two. Or at least he’s back to provide a supplement to round one while round two is still being worked on. According to Taibbi, James Baker, who was general counsel for Twitter and a former top-level FBI official, inserted himself into the disclosure in an attempt to “vet” the files that were ultimately released. Elon Musk was not notified of Baker playing middle-man. As RedState reported, Baker was fired on Tuesday, and with Taibbi’s latest thread, we now know why.

With the unexpected return of Bob Iger last month for a new stint as Disney CEO, the entertainment giant’s veteran chief financial officer Christine McCarthy has emerged as a leading contender to take over the top job. “Christine has always been a force to be reckoned with, but you have to put her on a list of top five possibilities after the last few weeks,” a Disney insider said of the now prominent CFO. If McCarthy was handed the keys to the Magic Kingdom in the next 23 months, the exec would occupy a historic position as the first female CEO in Disney’s soon to be more than 100 year existence.

Chief Twit Elon Musk has fired Twitter's general counsel James A. Baker, citing his alleged involvement in the company's suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. 'In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today,' Musk wrote in a tweet on Tuesday. Musk added that Baker's explanation of the events surrounding the laptop saga were 'unconvincing.' Also on Tuesday, Rep. James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, sent Baker a letter requesting his appearance before the House Oversight Committee next year, when the GOP is set to take control of the House.
Khanna: Twitter's viewpoint suppression

Three cheers for a California Democrat? You bet, and Ro Khanna had already earned one in Elon Musk’s Twitter dump last Friday. The internal debate at Twitter over the suppression of the Hunter Biden laptop story never even considered the First Amendment implications — except when Khanna brought it up. Matt Taibbi reported that Khanna e-mailed now-former VP Vijaya Gadde that Twitter’s suppression of the story had generated “a huge backlash” on Capitol Hill, and that free-speech concerns were rising fast:

tax fraud scheme

A criminal court jury in New York on Tuesday found the Trump Organization guilty of all charges in a sweeping, 15-year tax fraud scheme that prosecutors said was orchestrated by top executives at the company. Jurors deliberated for just over a day before returning the guilty verdicts on a total of 17 counts, including scheme to defraud, conspiracy, criminal tax fraud and falsifying business records. The company faces roughly $1.6 million in fines at sentencing. The Trump Organization and Allen Weisselberg, its former longtime chief financial officer, were indicted last year after a multi-year investigation

The subpoenas request communications from these local officials with Trump, specifically, and from a list

A strong majority of Americans continue to support sending arms and economic aid to Ukraine, according to a poll released Monday. But as the conflict drags into winter, Americans are divided over whether Washington should push Ukraine to reach a negotiated peace as soon as possible. More than two-thirds of respondents back supplying Ukraine with weapons and economic assistance, and about three-quarters support accepting Ukrainian refugees and sanctioning Russia, according to the survey conducted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs last month. While support among the American public for assistance to Ukraine remains robust, Republican backing for aid to Ukraine has slipped since the spring

The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol has decided to make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, the panel's chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, told reporters Tuesday. Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, said the committee has not narrowed down the universe of individuals who may be referred. Asked whether Thompson believed any witnesses perjured themselves, he said, "that's part of the discussion."
Are you ready for ... Bolton 2024? replies

Er … no, not really. Nor do I think for a moment that we will need to prepare for it, either. John Bolton practically epitomizes seriousness, but this interlude between midterms and presidential primaries — shrinking as it is — is not called the “silly season” for no good reason. Bolton kinda-sorta threw his hat in the ring yesterday, or more accurately, announced that he would consider tossing his hat in the ring, yada yada yada. Bolton wants to goad other Republicans into fighting Trump now over his remarks about “terminating” the Constitution, while at the same time misrepresenting what’s actually happening among GOP elected officials:
German study: COVID-19 vaccine killing

First things first: there is no way to know for sure how common this is due to poor screening and reporting, but German researchers have decisively demonstrated through autopsy that the COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis was the cause of death in 5 patients they autopsied after sudden deaths experienced shortly after COVID-19 vaccination. The study was published in the peer reviewed journal Clinical Research in Cardiology. The doctor sharing the study is a Johns-Hopkins professor and graduate of the Harvard School of Public Health, so not a nobody in the public health world. The study itself is very convincing, as it is based not upon a statistical analysis of deaths
Deposition Reveals Fauci's Interesting

We’ve written about the connection between the Biden team and the media. We’ve seen Democrats move seamlessly between the White House and places like MSNBC and CNN. We’ve seen the Biden team and the DNC coordinate with social media like Twitter to get information that they don’t like suppressed, including about COVID. Turns out that there was a little bit more of a connection there that was revealed when Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt posted the deposition of Dr. Anthony Fauci. His daughter used to work for Twitter and he had to be asked a few times if he knew anyone
