The Democrats have retained control of the Senate, and the House is still up in the air, although the numbers look to favor Republicans.  Throughout the midterm elections there have been many tight races and margins are just razor thin.  So why is America always divided 50-50?  As the two parties constantly jockey for the majority, neither party really builds any momentum.  Annie Lowrey, staff writer at The Atlantic, joins us for how polarization and a changing electorate is impacting politics.   Next, more colleges are offering admission to students who never even applied to those schools.  There has been an increase in universities that are participating in “direct admissions” programs to streamline the process for students but also align them with geographic and academic interests and boost enrollment  goals too.  The result is tens of thousands of students are getting offers they never thought they would.  Melissa Korn, higher education reporter at the WSJ, joins us for what to know.   Finally, dialing 0 to reach an operator or getting directory assistance from 411 is soon to be a thing of the past.  How many people even use those services now, as smartphones have made them obsolete?  Starting Jan. 1, AT&T is ending the service to landline customers in 21 states.  Wireless users aren't even offered it.  Jo Constantz, reporter at Bloomberg News, joins us for a brief history of 411.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Threat Analysis; your attack surface. The Hacker News New Chinese Malware Attack Framework Targets Windows, macOS, and Linux Systems. A previously undocumented command-and-control (C2) framework dubbed Alchimist is likely being used in the wild to target Windows, macOS, and Linux systems. "Alchimist C2 has a web interface written in Simplified Chinese and can generate a configured payload, establish remote sessions, deploy payloads to the remote machines, capture screenshots, perform remote shellcode execution, and run arbitrary commands," Cisco Talos said in a report shared with The Hacker News. Written in GoLang, Alchimist is complemented by a beacon implant called Insekt, which comes with remote access features that can be instrumented by the C2 server.” "Since Alchimist is a single-file based ready-to-go C2 framework, it is difficult to attribute its use to a single actor such as the authors, APTs, or crimeware syndicates." The trojan, for its part, is equipped with features typically present in backdoors of this kind, enabling the malware to get system information, capture screenshots, run arbitrary commands, and download remote files, among others. Alchimist C2 panel further features the ability to generate first stage payloads, including PowerShell and wget code snippets for Windows and Linux, potentially allowing an attacker to flesh out their infection chains to distribute the Insekt RAT binary. The instructions could then be potentially embedded in a maldoc attached to a phishing email that, when opened, downloads and launches the backdoor on the compromised machine. What's more, the Linux version of Insekt is capable of listing the contents of the ".ssh" directory and even adding new SSH keys to the "~/.ssh/authorized_keys" file to facilitate remote access over SSH. The Hacker News Hackers Using Vishing to Trick Victims into Installing Android Banking Malware. Malicious actors are resorting to voice phishing (vishing) tactics to dupe victims into installing Android malware on their devices. The Dutch mobile security company said it identified a network of phishing websites targeting Italian online-banking users that are designed to get hold of their contact details. Telephone-oriented attack delivery (TOAD), as the social engineering technique is called, involves calling the victims using previously collected information from the fraudulent websites. The caller, who purports to be a support agent for the bank, instructs the individual on the other end of the call to install a security app and grant it extensive permissions, when, in reality, it's malicious software intended to gain remote access or conduct financial fraud. What's more, the infrastructure utilized by the threat actor has been found to deliver a second malware named SMS Spy that enables the adversary to gain access to all incoming SMS messages and intercept one-time passwords (OTPs) sent by banks. The new wave of hybrid fraud attacks presents a new dimension for scammers to mount convincing Android malware campaigns that have otherwise relied on traditional methods such as Google Play Store droppers, rogue ads, and smishing. The Hacker News 64,000 Additional Patients Impacted by Omnicell Data Breach - What is Your Data Breach Action Plan? Founded in 1992, Omnicell is a leading provider of medication management solutions for hospitals, long-term care facilities, and retail pharmacies. On May 4, 2022, Omnicell's IT systems and third-party cloud services were affected by ransomware attacks which may lead to data security concerns for employees and patients. While it is still early in the investigation, this appears to be a severe breach with potentially significant consequences for the company. Omnicell began informing individuals whose information may have been compromised on August 3, 2022. Hackers may be able to access and sell patient-sensitive information, such as social security numbers, due to the time delay between the breach and the company's report of affected patients. The type of information that may be exposed are: Credit card information. Financial information. Social security numbers. Driver's license numbers. Health insurance details. The healthcare industry is one of the most targeted sectors globally, with attacks doubling year over year. And these costs are measured in millions or even billions of dollars - not to mention increased risks for patients' privacy (and reputation). The Washington Post How to protect schools getting whacked by ransomware. Ransomware gangs are taking Americans to school. So far this year, hackers have taken hostage at least 1,735 schools in 27 districts; the massive Los Angeles Unified School District is their latest target. Ransomware hackers breach computers, lock them up, steal sensitive data and demand money to release their hold on organizations’ critical systems. These criminals often attack schools because they are profitable targets. If all ransomware victims refused to pay, the attacks would stop. Indeed, paying up might be illegal: The Treasury Department released guidance last year noting that giving money to global criminal organizations can violate sanctions law. The trouble is, saying no isn’t always easy. Los Angeles didn’t capitulate, and the criminals leaked a trove of data — a consequence that can prove more or less serious depending on the sensitivity of the stolen information. “Because we can,” said a representative of the ransomware gang that took down Los Angeles Unified School District, explaining the collective’s motivations to a Bloomberg News reporter. Schools’ task is to turn “can” to “can’t” — or, at least, to make success pay a whole lot less. CNET News. Verizon Alerts Prepaid Customers to Recent Security Breach. Verizon notified prepaid customers this week of a recent cyberattack that granted third-party actors access to their accounts, as reported earlier Tuesday by BleepingComputer. The attack occurred between Oct. 6 and Oct. 10 and affected 250 Verizon prepaid customers. The breach exposed the last four digits of customers' credit cards used to make payments on their prepaid accounts. While no full credit card information was accessible, the information was enough to grant the attackers access to Verizon user accounts, which hold semi-sensitive data such "name, telephone number, billing address, price plans, and other service-related information," per a notice from Verizon. Account access also potentially enabled attackers to process unauthorized SIM card changes on prepaid lines. Also known as SIM swapping, unauthorized SIM card changes can allow for the transfer of an unsuspecting person's phone number to another phone. From there, the counterfeit phone can be used to receive SMS messages for password resets and user identification verifications on other accounts, giving attackers potential access to any account they have, or can guess, the username for. Consequently, Verizon recommended affected customers secure their non-Verizon accounts such as social media, financial, email and other accounts that allow for password resets by phone.

The order also states that for those fired, backpay must be issued. The lawsuit was filed against the City of New York, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the New York Department of Sanitation, Commissioner of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene David Chokshi, and New York City Mayor Eric Adams. "Though vaccination should be encouraged, public employees should not have been terminated for their noncompliance," the court stated. "Based upon the Petitioners’ vague denials of their exemptions, the fact they were kept at full duty for several months while their exemptions were pending, the Mayor’s Executive Order granting exemptions to certain classes of people, and the lifting of the private sector mandate, this Court finds the Commissioners Orders of October 20, 2021, and December 13, 2021, as well as the Mayor’s Executive Order No. 62 to be arbitrary and capricious," the court ruled. The petitioners of the suit are former Department of Sanitation employees that were terminated from their positions in February 2022. The petitioners argued that Adam’s Executive Order No. 62, which provided exemptions for athletes, performers, and other artists, "rendered the public employee vaccination mandate arbitrary and capricious or unconstitutional." The court noted that all but one of the petitioners applied for exemptions, and questioned why the city could not keep its vaccine or test policy. The court did not argue against issuing temporary vaccination mandates in a public health emergency, but added, "however, ordering and enforcing that vaccination policy on only a portion of the populace for an indefinite period of time, is akin to legislating." The court also stated, "being vaccinated does not prevent an individual from contracting or transmitting Covid-19. As of the day of this Decision, CDC guidelines regarding quarantine and isolation are the same for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals."

"We have learned through the course of the pandemic that the vaccine against Covid-19 is not absolute. breakthrough cases occur, even for those who have been vaccinated and boosted. President Joseph Biden has said that the pandemic is over. The State of New York ended the Covid-19 state of emergency over a month ago," the court said. https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-hillary-clinton-already-accusing-right-wing-extremists-of-stealing-2024-election?utm_campaign=64487 Hillary Clinton already accusing ‘right-wing extremists’ of stealing 2024 election https://twitter.com/i/status/1583496354734538756 - Play Video Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a video posted to social media accused "right-wing extremists" of having "a plan to literally steal the next presidential election."

The Biden administration aims to grow U.S. offshore wind generation from less than 1 gigawatt currently to 30 gigawatts by the end of 2030 as part of its aggressive green energy transition, according to a White House fact sheet. However, wind executives are concerned that the administration’s target is too ambitious as projects are constantly delayed by a permitting bottleneck and expensive leases, the FT reported. Various energy projects including offshore wind developments face difficulties in receiving correct permitting from the government, which delays construction and increases costs, according to the FT.

Joe Manchin of West Virginia proposed a permitting bill in September that could have accelerated the federal permitting of key wind, solar and fossil fuel projects; however, the measure was pulled from a recent government funding bill after it failed to gain sufficient support in the Senate. Manchin’s bill would have also given the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) more power to expedite the permitting of transmission lines that transport electricity produced by offshore wind and other renewables to urban areas. Roughly 77 gigawatts of offshore wind are awaiting transmission, according to the Department of Energy’s August wind energy report. Executives also claim prices of federal leases for offshore wind developments are too high, which makes it difficult for wind developers to make profits, the FT reported. The federal New York Bight offshore wind auction, which offered six lease areas totaling over 488,000 acres, received $4.37 billion total in winning bids, representing the nation’s highest-grossing competitive offshore energy lease sale in history, according to an Interior Department press release.

According to the data, Border Patrol agents have encountered 98 suspected terrorists in fiscal year 2022. In 2021, that number was 15. In 2020, it was three and in 2019, zero. "The Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS) – also known as the “watchlist” – is the U.S. government’s database that contains sensitive information on terrorist identities. The TSDS originated as the consolidated terrorist watchlist to house information on known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) but has evolved over the last decade to include additional individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals," U.S. Customs and Border Protection explains. The current number only includes suspected terrorists who were caught, not the number embedded in the estimated one million illegal aliens who evaded law enforcement while entering the country and disappearing into American communities. Republican Congressman Andy Biggs, who represents Arizona's 5th Congressional District, is sounding the alarm about the increase.

Griner appeared via video at the Moscow Regional Court from a penal colony outside the city, where she is imprisoned and will remain. Griner was convicted on August 4 after police found vape canisters containing cannabis oil at the Moscow airport where she landed. Griner's appeal was rejected after a ruling on Tuesday to uphold the sentence. The ruling did state that Griner will have time served in prison with her pre-trial detention now being included in her sentence, with each day of pre-trial detention being counted as 1.5 days in prison. Griner will thus have to serve around eight years in a Russian prison, reports AP. Griner's arrest came as tensions were high between Russia and the United States and just days before Moscow made the call to send troops to Ukraine. Griner played basketball in a Russian women's league during the WNBA's off-season. Griner said that she packed the canisters accidentally and that she was prescribed cannabis for pain. She pleaded guilty to the charge. Griner's sentence of 9 years was close to the maximum of 10, with her legal team saying that the punishment was excessive. Even NBA star Steph Curry got in on the action in Brittany’s defense: https://twitter.com/i/status/1582558686869737474 - Play Video The White House told reporters following her conviction that they were aggressively pursuing every avenue to bring home Griner to the United States. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that negotiations between the Biden administration and Russia to bring Griner home remain ongoing. In July, there were reports that the Biden administration offered to exchange a convicted Russian arms trafficker Viktor Bout for the release of Griner and Pail Whelan.

The order also states that for those fired, backpay must be issued. The lawsuit was filed against the City of New York, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the New York Department of Sanitation, Commissioner of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene David Chokshi, and New York City Mayor Eric Adams. "Though vaccination should be encouraged, public employees should not have been terminated for their noncompliance," the court stated. "Based upon the Petitioners’ vague denials of their exemptions, the fact they were kept at full duty for several months while their exemptions were pending, the Mayor’s Executive Order granting exemptions to certain classes of people, and the lifting of the private sector mandate, this Court finds the Commissioners Orders of October 20, 2021, and December 13, 2021, as well as the Mayor’s Executive Order No. 62 to be arbitrary and capricious," the court ruled. The petitioners of the suit are former Department of Sanitation employees that were terminated from their positions in February 2022. The petitioners argued that Adam’s Executive Order No. 62, which provided exemptions for athletes, performers, and other artists, "rendered the public employee vaccination mandate arbitrary and capricious or unconstitutional." The court noted that all but one of the petitioners applied for exemptions, and questioned why the city could not keep its vaccine or test policy. The court did not argue against issuing temporary vaccination mandates in a public health emergency, but added, "however, ordering and enforcing that vaccination policy on only a portion of the populace for an indefinite period of time, is akin to legislating." The court also stated, "being vaccinated does not prevent an individual from contracting or transmitting Covid-19. As of the day of this Decision, CDC guidelines regarding quarantine and isolation are the same for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals." "The Petitioners should not have been terminated for choosing not to protect themselves. "We have learned through the course of the pandemic that the vaccine against Covid-19 is not absolute. breakthrough cases occur, even for those who have been vaccinated and boosted. President Joseph Biden has said that the pandemic is over. The State of New York ended the Covid-19 state of emergency over a month ago," the court said. https://thepostmillennial.com/breaking-hillary-clinton-already-accusing-right-wing-extremists-of-stealing-2024-election?utm_campaign=64487 Hillary Clinton already accusing ‘right-wing extremists’ of stealing 2024 election https://twitter.com/i/status/1583496354734538756 - Play Video Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in a video posted to social media accused "right-wing extremists" of having "a plan to literally steal the next presidential election."

Inflation is a further concern for wind firms and their equipment manufacturers as the cost of materials continues to rise, according to the FT. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2022/10/24/new-border-patrol-numbers-show-an-alarming-number-of-terrorists-entering-the-us-n2614917 New Border Patrol Numbers Show an Alarming Number of Terrorists Entering the U.S. New numbers released in a calculated, late Friday night news dump over the weekend show an alarming and increasing number of suspected terrorists are entering the United States through the southern border with Mexico. According to the data, Border Patrol agents have encountered 98 suspected terrorists in fiscal year 2022. In 2021, that number was 15. In 2020, it was three and in 2019, zero. "The Terrorist Screening Dataset (TSDS) – also known as the “watchlist” – is the U.S. government’s database that contains sensitive information on terrorist identities. The TSDS originated as the consolidated terrorist watchlist to house information on known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) but has evolved over the last decade to include additional individuals who represent a potential threat to the United States, including known affiliates of watchlisted individuals," U.S. Customs and Border Protection explains. The current number only includes suspected terrorists who were caught, not the number embedded in the estimated one million illegal aliens who evaded law enforcement while entering the country and disappearing into American communities. Republican Congressman Andy Biggs, who represents Arizona's 5th Congressional District, is sounding the alarm about the increase.

Griner appeared via video at the Moscow Regional Court from a penal colony outside the city, where she is imprisoned and will remain. Griner was convicted on August 4 after police found vape canisters containing cannabis oil at the Moscow airport where she landed. Griner's appeal was rejected after a ruling on Tuesday to uphold the sentence. The ruling did state that Griner will have time served in prison with her pre-trial detention now being included in her sentence, with each day of pre-trial detention being counted as 1.5 days in prison. Griner will thus have to serve around eight years in a Russian prison, reports AP. Griner's arrest came as tensions were high between Russia and the United States and just days before Moscow made the call to send troops to Ukraine. Griner played basketball in a Russian women's league during the WNBA's off-season. Griner said that she packed the canisters accidentally and that she was prescribed cannabis for pain. She pleaded guilty to the charge. Griner's sentence of 9 years was close to the maximum of 10, with her legal team saying that the punishment was excessive. Even NBA star Steph Curry got in on the action in Brittany’s defense: https://twitter.com/i/status/1582558686869737474 - Play Video The White House told reporters following her conviction that they were aggressively pursuing every avenue to bring home Griner to the United States. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that negotiations between the Biden administration and Russia to bring Griner home remain ongoing. In July, there were reports that the Biden administration offered to exchange a convicted Russian arms trafficker Viktor Bout for the release of Griner and Pail Whelan.

EIA data show that the United States, as of Oct. 14, has 25.4 days of supply—down from 34.2 days of supply four weeks prior. National Economic Council Director Brian Deese, a top adviser to President Joe Biden, told Bloomberg News last week that current diesel levels are “unacceptably” low and that “all options are on the table” to increase supplies. The diesel crunch comes just over two weeks before the November 2022 midterm elections and will likely drive up prices even more. Diesel is the fuel used by freight trains and commonly used by long-haul truckers to transport goods and food. Prices, meanwhile, remain relatively elevated, according to AAA data. The average price for a gallon of diesel stands at around $5.33 nationwide, or up nearly $2 since the same time in 2021, the data shows. Wholesale diesel prices at the New York spot market spiked last week to more than $200 per barrel. It comes as the Biden administration recently announced it would release another 15 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve, part of the 180 million Biden authorized in March, that Republicans say is a bid to keep Democrats politically afloat ahead of the midterms. But Biden and his allies say that it’s not a political tactic, and the administration says it will refill the reserve when prices drop to $67–$72 per barrel. https://www.dailywire.com/news/biden-on-his-fitness-for-office-i-could-drop-dead-tomorrow Biden On His Fitness For Office: ‘I Could Drop Dead Tomorrow’ President Joe Biden (D) responded to questions about his age and fitness for office during an interview that aired Sunday morning by saying that he could “drop dead tomorrow.” Biden made the remarks during an MSNBC interview with Jonathan Capehart when he was asked what he would say to convince voters to stick with him if he were to run again in 2024. https://twitter.com/i/status/1584212983672340480 - Play Video https://www.dailyfetched.com/eu-to-gift-18-billion-to-ukraine-next-year-rest-will-come-from-u-s/ EU to Gift $18 Billion to Ukraine Next Year, the Rest Will Come From U.S European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen spoke after the 27 national EU leaders discussed supporting Ukraine during the second day of their summit in Brussels on Friday. She said the EU has so far sent $19 billion to Ukraine this year. Von der Leyen said the EU would finance 1.5 billion euros per month, with the rest expected to come from the United States. During a video link, Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the EU leaders saying Russian missiles and Iranian drones have damaged a third of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. Von der Leyen said the EU was looking to help Ukraine re-establish water, power and electricity supplies. Zelensky asked the EU for air and missile defence systems and called for “new powerful” sanctions on Russia and Iran for supplying drones in Moscow’s war. Poland and the three Baltic states proposed banning diamond imports from Russia and phasing out the steel trade. Meanwhile, Hungary opposed sanctions against Russia, while Germany and France have said current measures already go far. Zelensky appealed for more aid pledges to be made at an international conference in Berlin next Tuesday. European Council President Charles Michel, the summit’s chairman, said the EU was looking at using Russian assets frozen under sanctions. Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said that seizing assets amounted to some 300 billion euros, while Berlin and others have warned it might be illegal. Kallas also sided with Lithuania for a possible international tribunal to judge possible war crimes committed in Ukraine. https://www.foxnews.com/us/ex-minneapolis-police-officer-kueng-pleads-guilty-george-floyd-killing Ex-Minneapolis police officer Kueng pleads guilty in George Floyd killing A former Minneapolis police officer pleaded guilty on Monday to aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter in the May 2020 killing of George Floyd. Alexander Kueng’s guilty plea will allow one count of aiding and abetting second-degree murder to be dismissed. Kueng had helped to restrain Floyd, who was handcuffed and knelt on his back during the May 25, 2020, killing that was recorded on video. He is the second officer to plead guilty to the state charge. Thomas Lane earlier pleaded guilty to the same count. Their former colleague, Tou Thao, is still scheduled to face trial this week. All three have already been convicted on federal counts of willfully violating the civil rights of Floyd. Lane was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in the federal case. Kueng was sentenced to three years and Thao was sentenced to 3 1/2 years. Officer Derek Chauvin has already been convicted of state murder and manslaughter charges in Floyd’s killing last year and is currently serving 22 1/2 years in the state case. Chauvin had pinned Floyd to the ground with a knee on Floyd’s neck as he repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe. State sentencing guidelines for a person with no criminal record, like Kueng, call for a range from about 3 1/2 years to four years and nine months in prison for second-degree unintentional manslaughter. The presumptive sentence is four years. If Kueng had been convicted of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, he would have faced a presumptive 12 1/2 years in prison. https://dailycaller.com/2022/10/23/msnbc-host-claims-minority-republican-candidates-not-voices-of-color/ Now this!

Ethan Crumbley, 16, is accused of opening fire at Oxford High School outside Detroit on Nov. 30 with a handgun that his father purchased for him as a Christmas gift days before the massacre. Two boys, aged 17 and 16, and two girls, aged 17 and 14, were killed while six other students and a teacher were wounded. Crumbley, who was a 15-year-old at the time of the shooting, pleaded guilty in Oakland County Circuit Court to a total of 24 charges, including one count of terrorism causing death and four counts of first-degree murder. He was also charged with seven counts of assault with intent to murder and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He faces life without parole when he is sentenced. A tentative sentencing hearing is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2023. Crumbley’s lawyers on Monday withdrew an insanity defense notice that they had previously filed with the court. Crumbley’s parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley, also face involuntary manslaughter charges connected to the shooting. In that case, Rochester District Court Judge Julie Nicholson said evidence showed they had purchased a gun for their son despite signs that he was a “troubled young man.” The case appears to be the first in the United States in which the parents of a teenage school shooter have been charged with crimes attributed to their child. They have pleaded not guilty. Four days before the shooting, Ethan Crumbley accompanied his father to a gun shop, where James Crumbley bought a 9mm handgun, prosecutors said.

Showcasing incredible takedown defense combined with a punishing style on the feet, Dariush never slowed down over all rounds as he continued to hammer Gamrot with strikes. Late in the third round, Dariush clubbed Gamrot with a huge overhand left that helped him secure the victory as he notched his eighth victory in a row in arguably the toughest division in the sport. The defining strike came with just over a minute remaining as Dariush leveled Gamrot with a huge overhand left. Gamrot dropped to the ground before diving for another takedown to stave off a potential finish. Still, the knockdown was the biggest strike in the fight as Dariush put on another stellar showcase while competing against a less established product in Gamrot. With the win, Dariush moves that much closer to title contention. But one of the best parts for me came in Dariush’s post fight interview. Beneil Dariush Octagon Interview | UFC 280- Play 0:00-1:10 The reason I want to praise Dariush here, is because he’s praising Jesus Christ in an area of the world where Islam is the dominant religion currently.

Officer Derek Chauvin has already been convicted of state murder and manslaughter charges in Floyd’s killing last year and is currently serving 22 1/2 years in the state case. Chauvin had pinned Floyd to the ground with a knee on Floyd’s neck as he repeatedly said he couldn’t breathe. State sentencing guidelines for a person with no criminal record, like Kueng, call for a range from about 3 1/2 years to four years and nine months in prison for second-degree unintentional manslaughter. The presumptive sentence is four years. If Kueng had been convicted of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, he would have faced a presumptive 12 1/2 years in prison. https://dailycaller.com/2022/10/23/msnbc-host-claims-minority-republican-candidates-not-voices-of-color/ Now this!

Ethan Crumbley, 16, is accused of opening fire at Oxford High School outside Detroit on Nov. 30 with a handgun that his father purchased for him as a Christmas gift days before the massacre. Two boys, aged 17 and 16, and two girls, aged 17 and 14, were killed while six other students and a teacher were wounded. Crumbley, who was a 15-year-old at the time of the shooting, pleaded guilty in Oakland County Circuit Court to a total of 24 charges, including one count of terrorism causing death and four counts of first-degree murder. He was also charged with seven counts of assault with intent to murder and 12 counts of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. He faces life without parole when he is sentenced. A tentative sentencing hearing is scheduled for Feb. 9, 2023. Crumbley’s lawyers on Monday withdrew an insanity defense notice that they had previously filed with the court. Crumbley’s parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley, also face involuntary manslaughter charges connected to the shooting. In that case, Rochester District Court Judge Julie Nicholson said evidence showed they had purchased a gun for their son despite signs that he was a “troubled young man.” The case appears to be the first in the United States in which the parents of a teenage school shooter have been charged with crimes attributed to their child. They have pleaded not guilty. Four days before the shooting, Ethan Crumbley accompanied his father to a gun shop, where James Crumbley bought a 9mm handgun, prosecutors said.

Showcasing incredible takedown defense combined with a punishing style on the feet, Dariush never slowed down over all rounds as he continued to hammer Gamrot with strikes. Late in the third round, Dariush clubbed Gamrot with a huge overhand left that helped him secure the victory as he notched his eighth victory in a row in arguably the toughest division in the sport. The defining strike came with just over a minute remaining as Dariush leveled Gamrot with a huge overhand left. Gamrot dropped to the ground before diving for another takedown to stave off a potential finish. Still, the knockdown was the biggest strike in the fight as Dariush put on another stellar showcase while competing against a less established product in Gamrot. With the win, Dariush moves that much closer to title contention. But one of the best parts for me came in Dariush’s post fight interview. Beneil Dariush Octagon Interview | UFC 280- Play 0:00-1:10 The reason I want to praise Dariush here, is because he’s praising Jesus Christ in an area of the world where Islam is the dominant religion currently. Eventually it won’t be, but for the time being, this was a bold statement in the United Emirates.

EPISODE 58: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:45) The vague and underwhelming Bloomberg report about how prosecutors "believe there is sufficient evidence to charge Trump" was surprisingly specific about one thing: the timeline is developing in such a way that a Trump indictment for Obstruction of Justice and other crimes would not happen before the week of January 2 (or, as a longshot, the week of December 26) 3:44 Bloomberg also gives away its source: the FBI agents in "the team that's part of the classified records probe." (5:00) There is an unclear claim that DOJ would not indict ONLY on Obstruction. Does that mean they DO intend to file other charges, or that if they don't file others, they won't file ANYTHING? (6:50) DOJ may also be trying to time any announcement to fit appropriately with Trump's other legal vulnerabilities, like the Eastman Coup Georgia lying-in-a-sworn-statement case that just grew in seriousness yesterday (7:26) But probably not the E. Jean Carroll rape lawsuits for which Trump was deposed yesterday (8:00) Finally I take a wild guess at the EXACT date of any Trump indictment - at least the most appropriate date for it. B-Block (12:37) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Griffin, in California (13:36) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: The voice of the Ohio voter is heard loud and clear: "F You, Fascist!" So why aren't Dem bigwigs funding Tim Ryan? And push comes to shove in the slowly-expiring British cabinet. No: Literally. Pushing and shoving in parliament. (17:31) IN SPORTS: You may think pitching decides baseball's post-seasons, but those with more homers won both games yesterday - and 101 of the last 120. And a Christmas Album allows me to confirm the ancient story of Philadelphia fans booing Santa Claus, plus New York fans throwing snowballs at Tiny Tim's tulips (21:11) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Sean Hannity tells us way too much of how his dad used to beat him with a belt. He and Jim Jordan compete with Kimberly Guilfoyle actually making a joke about Nancy Pelosi and plastic surgery. Can we start a GoFundMe to get Kim a mirror? C-Block (27:00) THINGS I PROMISED NOT TO TELL: With Netflix's profits in the news, the story of the day I met with them to propose not just a streaming political show, but how they could own ALL of the TV News field in the post-cable future and all they could think about was...the necessity of putting on Italian subtitles.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
