MMA Fighter Takes Down Knife-Wielding Attacker
"The video is in the article. The footage went viral several days later leading to Baez making an appearance on TMZ and explaining what happened before, during and after his altercation. The man was identified by police as Omar Marrero and charged with two colonies, according to CBS news. What he likely did not know was that Baez held a 5 2 -1 record as a professional mixed martial artist most of his bouts with fight time promotions. Baez also told TMZ that he holds a black belt in jiu -jitsu, wrestled in college, practiced and has kickboxing for 15 years. So generally, he's a very bad person to pick a fight with, to the one holding a knife. And as they point out, this isn't the first time someone has had a fight. He's a very bad person to pick including an attempted car thief against Kevin Holland, a great fighter, an attempted mugging of strawweight Palina Viana, an attempted car theft against Jordan Williams, a home invasion of light heavyweight Anthony Smith, a drunken swing at Hall Hall of of Famer Matt Serra, a nighttime break -in at ex -light heavyweight champ John Jones' house. Can you imagine? Probably the greatest MMA fighter of all time, certainly one of them, an attempted stabbing of featherweight Maquon Americani's brother in an attempted mugging of legend Renzo Gracie.

Welcome into The Mike Gallagher Show week in review podcast. Great to have you here. It is Friday, November the third. It's another week chock full of breaking news. Let's begin with this shocker. Over a hundred college professors at Columbia University in New York City signing a letter in support of pro -hamas protesters on campus. The anti -semitism we're seeing in the streets of America, particularly on college campuses, is astounding and we tackled it this week front and center. Over a hundred Columbia University professors signed a letter yesterday defending students who support Hamas. Can you imagine a college professor supporting monsters who put babies in ovens and and cooked them alive? Can you imagine over a hundred Columbia University professors, Ivy League staffers writing a letter supporting the students who defend Hamas? You'd send your kid to college at Columbia, you'd be out of your mind. You would be out of your mind. If you've got a son or daughter who wants to go get some hugely successful career and they think Columbia University is the path to take, you'd be nuts to let your kid go to Columbia, much less pay for it. And donors, you would donate to Columbia University? Over a hundred professors defending students who are supporting bloodthirsty animalistic terrorists. They put babies in ovens. They raped women and broke their legs before murdering them. They chopped soldiers' heads off. They chopped babies' heads off. And these moron professors, and they are morons, they are ignorant fools, wrote a letter demanding for support the moron students defending terrorism. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives has a brand new speaker. He's Representative Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana. Democrats are none too happy about this guy. In fact, they are literally denouncing his Bible -believing Christianity. Wait till you hear what MSNBC personality and former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had to say about Mike Johnson's religious beliefs. Does the Bible inform your worldview? The new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, a little -known congressman from Louisiana, has had the audacity to admit that for him the Bible informs his worldview. Jen Psaki was the White House Press Secretary. She now has her own show on MSNBC, and she is undoubtedly very popular among the left. I want you to hear Jen Psaki expressing her shock and disgust and mortification at the newly elected Speaker of the House, admitting that he's a Bible -believing Christian. So let's take a few minutes to talk about this new speaker. First glance, Mike Johnson does seem fine, fine -ish. Conservative, yes, but he once started a civility caucus with a Democrat. And I mean, if nothing else, he wears a suit and has glasses. How threatening can this guy actually be? Well, he gave us all a little clue as to how he would govern in an interview this week. I am a Bible -believing Christian. Someone asked me today in the media, they said, it's curious. People are curious. What does Mike Johnson think about any issue under the sun? I said, well, go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it. That's, that's my worldview. You heard that right. The Bible doesn't just inform his worldview. It is his worldview. In fact, during his first speech in his new job, Johnson suggested that his election as speaker was an act of God. Talk about a bit of a humble brag there. So what exactly has God apparently called on Mike Johnson to do? Well, his views on policy are essentially what you'd expect from a religious fundamentalist. They're more divisive than they are divine. She's threatened. They're threatened by a religious fundamentalist like Mike Johnson. And you heard what she, the way she described it. It's threatening. We should be scared because he's a Christian. Now you just heard that, right? I mean, I'm not hallucinating, right? I just played a clip from MSNBC and she's got some MSNBC bona fides. She was the White House press secretary. She's no slouch in terms of elocution. She knows what she's saying. She forms the word. She's reading those words on a teleprompter. Let me again repeat what Jen Psaki just told her national audience. We should be scared of Mike Johnson because he's a Christian. Let that sink in. This is the Mike Gallagher Show Week in Review podcast. I hope you'll subscribe. Don't miss any of the great content that we produce every single day. If you missed anything, you'll catch up with us. The Israeli consulate in New York City invited the media to a special event. They shared firsthand evidence of the brutality of Hamas in Israel. This is very difficult to hear, but we can't turn away. We must be aware of what actually happened on October 7th in Israel. Kelly Jane Torrance writes about it. None of us wanted to see such sites, this person writes, but none of us would give up the opportunity. The world needs to know what happened. Journalists, about 20 of us had to leave our cell phones and Apple watches at the door. Some of the footage had never been released and Israeli authorities had their reasons for showing it only to select reporters and some select others like Joe Biden. They're concerned about the feelings of the families involved. They also don't want such horror and humiliation broadcast worldwide. One retired major general and reservist, Mickey Edelstein said, we have values. This reporter said, human beings still have the capacity to shock if one can call Hamas human beings. I will long be haunted by what I saw. The footage eases you into things, she writes, a little. Terrorists fire at motorists on the highway. They enter a kibbutz and blow an ambulance's tires first. They shoot a dog who reminds, who remains shaking on the street. They light a home on fire. Then, then they start entering the houses. Israel collected video from a wide variety of sources, public closed circuit TV, traffic cameras, dash cams of terrorists and of victims, as well as their social media posts and messages at home. You can hear the murderers breathe heavily as they nervously approach their prey. It was almost impossible to watch the council general admitted afterward. He couldn't even stay for the whole screening. A father tries to get his young children dressed only in underpants safely to a backyard shelter. A grenade lands before he can close the door. He's dead. A terrorist takes the two boys back into the house. The security camera captures their devastation. The blast blinded one boy in an eye, the other falls to the ground, plaintively pleading, why am I alive? Why am I alive? Blood is everywhere. A man with his nose blown off, headless Israeli soldiers, an elderly woman clad only in her brightly colored underwear, never meant to be seen by so many. Piles of bodies surrounded by young men, celebrating, chanting Aluakbar. A broken woman is taken from the back of a Jeep, the rear of her pants covered in blood. We can easily understand what likely happened to her. Young men clamor over trying to get a look inside. Women who were raped had their legs broken, then they were killed. So they were raped, they had their legs broken, and then they were murdered. Many times Kelly Jane Torrance writes, I wanted to look away, but I forced myself not to. We journalists had to see so what happened we could tell the world. Yet here is a line from a CBS news piece written by a journalist who saw the footage, quote, in another clip, a militant stands over a man who appears to have been shot in the gut and hacks at him multiple times with a garden hoe. Interestingly, the words terrorist or terrorism don't appear in this piece. They don't appear in the New York Times report of that screening either. I can tell you it was not a militant who stands over a man. A group of terrorists argue over who gets to behead the man. A Thai worker bleeding profusely from his stomach but still alive. Someone hacks at him repeatedly with a hoe trying to behead him. Every single time the terrorist yells Alua Akbar. That difference in detail is why the consulate staff sat through 45 minutes of misery. They need people to see what happened. Sure, dead babies were found without their heads, but who knows who did the deed, according to journalists from serious publications, supposedly publications. serious She says, the hate I witnessed goes beyond those who entered Israel. A young man uses a dead Israeli woman's phone to call his parents and brag of killing 10 Jews, quote, with my bare hands. He pleads to his father, please be proud of me, dad. That's the culture Israel must fight. Then there's New York City. A day after the screening of this video, thousands of anti -Semites marched into Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge after a rally at the Brooklyn Museum. At the front were people holding a banner that read, by any means necessary. This journalist who saw these atrocities committed by these monsters, these savages called Hamas, writes, understand what a sign like that means. These people know what happened October 7th. They're gathering in large numbers in New York and cities around the world, including America, to show their support for the animals who committed these atrocities. They are as bloodthirsty as the heavy breathing terrorists whose voices the people of Israel will never get out of their heads. And that's so important. You must know what pro -Hamas demonstrators are. On the pop culture front, actor Matthew Perry, best known for his role on the sitcom series Friends, passed away at the age of 54. He was found in his hot tub in his Los Angeles home, apparently drowned. A very interesting conversation resulted in vaccines with the shocking death of Matthew Perry. 54 years old, he was one of the stars of Friends. He was found dead in his jacuzzi at his Los Angeles home. And right away, people started rushing in saying he was a big pro -vaccination guy. The anti -vaxxers, as they're known, went bonkers, saying, how does a 54 -year -old guy who was allegedly clean and sober, he had had a lifetime of trouble with drugs and alcohol, apparently, rough life, he had gotten his act together, he wrote a memoir last year, and he was lounging in his jacuzzi, and he died. And so far, the police say, no sign of foul play. There were some prescription drugs found, but no illegal drugs or illicit drugs. And this guy was part of the culture and one of the most successful sitcom actors of all time, and one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, Friends. And apparently, he had his personal assistant go out to run some errands. The assistant came back after a couple hours and found this guy dead in the jacuzzi in the backyard of the pool. A lot of people were tweeting and writing on social media. This is not a conspiracy theory. People are suddenly dying. People are having heart attacks. And they pointed out that Matthew Perry had tweeted out like a year ago, could I be any more vaccinated? Get your shot and then get your shirt. Shop the entire collection. And it was a collection of t -shirts bragging about getting vaccinated. And people were tweeting out things like, do you believe Matthew Perry died from heart issues in his jacuzzi that were caused by him getting so many COVID vaccines? Again, he once promoted a t -shirt that said, could I be any more vaccinated? Well, you know, I know we don't want to open up that whole can of worms again. On the other hand, did you see the story about the new analysis by the FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, said that there may be an increase in the risk of stroke when you get a COVID shot on the same day as when you get certain flu vaccines. A new analysis found the link was clearest in adults over 85. It applied to the Pfizer and Moderna COVID booster vaccines. The FDA said the risk might stem from the flu vaccine alone and be completely unrelated to the COVID shots. I think it's fair to say, and I just want to start right here and say, whether we like it or not, most Americans, I think, and I want you to correct me if you think I've got this wrong, most Americans have a deep distrust over just about any vaccine. There was a horrific incidence of violence this week in New York City. It erupted after an argument between neighbors of a New York City apartment building. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. Maybe you've seen the ghastly video of a neighbor in an apartment building who executed a father and his stepson over a dispute regarding noise. It was all captured on closed circuit surveillance video. It's awful. I don't want to play it. I mean, this guy came with a gun ready to confront this family. There had apparently been a history of arguing between these two tenants of the apartment building, I think it was in Brooklyn, and the family comes out to confront the guy. He's wearing a jacket. He's dressed all in black. And the closed circuit surveillance cameras are just crystal clear. One thing about this closed circuit TVs now, the video quality is as good as anything you see on a TV network. You can get these ring cameras and everything, and they're a real good deterrent, I think, for criminals, because they work well. I've got a whole set of them at a property that I own, and you can see everything. It records automatically. If there's movement, you can set all kinds of settings. Anyway, they had a closed circuit camera in the hallway of this apartment building. This guy's waiting. He's pacing. They're arguing. The dad comes out, and he's very threatening. He's apparently a bodybuilder. The father was this big, hulking, you know, muscular, tall guy. And he storms out with a pair of scissors in his hand, and they're arguing about the noise. And according to news reports, you know what the noise was? The family that the other guy was objecting to, they lived above this guy, and they didn't have carpeting on the floor. So whenever they walked, they were walking on wood floors, and it made a lot of noise, and it just aggravated the guy down below. So the guy down below shows up. He's in the hallway. He's got a jacket on. They're arguing. The family's arguing. The big, you know, bodybuilder is towering over the guy with a pair of scissors. Well, the shorter guy that came up to complain, he pulls out a gun, a handgun. The father immediately retreats. Doesn't matter. This guy starts blasting away. He shoots the dad multiple times. It's all caught on camera. The son, the stepson, tries to get away. He executes the stepson, pumps him full of bullets, and then he goes over to the dad, who's trying to get up. He's fallen by the door and puts a couple more bullets in his head for good measure. I mean, it was a stone cold execution. And there was a big debate on social media about whether or not it was self -defense or not. Well, of course it wasn't self -defense. He executed them. He's arguing with them about noise in an apartment. Now a family is shattered. And the breaking news, the reason I'm telling you this whole story is there is some news. They got the guy. Police shot him at a traffic stop moments ago in Brooklyn. The 47 -year -old suspect, Jason Pass, was in a car when police got a hit on his license plate. They performed a traffic stop, at which point the situation took a violent turn. He charged at the cops with a knife. They shot him. He's been rushed to an area hospital in critical condition. So everybody's lives are... And there's a moral to the story here. And the reason I think it's important to talk about it is more and more people are arming themselves. It's inevitable. Look at the world around us. Listen, I'm starting up the process again here in Florida. Years ago, I got a concealed carry permit course that I took in South Carolina. But you know, it's been years. I was living in New York City. You sure aren't supposed to have a gun in New York. And now that I'm a Florida resident, I'm going to be armed. You were there with Mike Lindell through thick and through thin. You appreciate that Mike has been targeted and they've tried to stop him.

A highlight from Bitcoin to Hit $100k BEFORE Halving in Q2 2024? (Why its Possible! ) Crypto News this Week!
"Just in. SEC Chair Gary Gensler pivots agency's attention to AI. We can get to crypto later. The SEC Chair called AI the most transformative technology of this generation and stressed the need to prepare for its influence on financial markets. Wow, how did we go from this to we can get to crypto later? Is it because Gensler is on a crusade to protect and defend retail investors like you and I? Or is it because last month a federal judge in the SEC lawsuits against Ripple and Terraform said he overstepped his authority by trying to regulate the sector? Or is it because the largest asset manager in the world, BlackRock, is now bullish on crypto? Let me know what you think in the comments below. Either way, the SEC now looking the other way, and in light of Ripple winning a battle in the ongoing war versus the SEC, Coinbase asks US federal judge to dismiss SEC's lawsuit. Coinbase leaned on the recent Ripple matter in Friday's filing, noting the SEC's lawsuit hinges on the type of transactions that the judge deemed outside of the regulator's jurisdiction. Nice. So while Gensler puts crypto on the back burner and instead embarks on a mission to protect us from artificial intelligence and the financial markets, the people US regulatory agencies claim to fight for us Americans are battling banks after accounts are frozen. Access to hard earned cash is denied. According to a new report from CBS News, a rash of banking customers are reaching out and detailing months and sometimes years long battles to gain access to their own money. Once the major news outlet gets involved and begins to report on a particular claim, the dispute is often instantly resolved. Crazy how these banks and big corporations only care about the people who give them money when they are put on blast in the media. And if frozen and denial of access to our money, property and freedom at large by banks isn't alarming enough. Also this week, customers report missing deposits from Wells Fargo bank accounts. Wells Fargo is dealing with a technical issue that has resulted in customers reporting that their direct deposits had disappeared from their bank accounts. On Thursday, a torrent of customers contacted Wells Fargo on Twitter, now officially branded as X, claiming they could not access money that they deposited into the bank. One person tweeted that he had been hit with an overdraft fee after money went missing from his account. Wells Fargo, this is the second largest bank in the US. The bank has also been plagued by scandal in recent years. The company settled with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in December, agreeing to pay customers $2 billion and a record $1 .7 billion fine for widespread mismanagement over multiple years that harmed over 16 million consumer accounts. Since then, the bank has also admitted to several other scandals, including in its auto loan business and mortgage business. The bank wrongfully repossessed some borrowers' vehicles, improperly charged fees and interest, and failed to refund certain fees, regulators say. Wells Fargo also improperly denied thousands of mortgage loan modifications, causing some customers to lose their homes in wrongful foreclosures, according to US regulators. People are losing their cars, their homes, their money from lack of access and improper fees and interest that are never refunded, while regulators squabble over whether certain cryptos are securities and now over AI that can manipulate financial markets. Now, would you rather regulators protect your cars, homes and actual hard -earned money in your bank accounts or focus on determining which cryptos are securities and trying and likely failing miserably at preventing AI from manipulating financial markets? Let me know in the comments below. In light of all this, is it any wonder that $262 billion in deposits, exits, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Bank of America and Citi in one year as government reveals collapse of another US bank? America's biggest banks are witnessing a contraction of consumer deposits as another regional bank is forced to close its doors. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, FDIC, says Heartland Tri -State Bank of Elkhart, Kansas failed on July 28. The collapse comes as a new report reveals the amount of cash that customers have taken out of the four largest banks in the US. So, what are people doing with their cash? What is the latest with the US dollar? What is the latest with crypto? Is there a compelling case for Bitcoin to reach $100 ,000 by the halving in April of 2024?

This week, the US lost its AAA credit rating and the White House is just pointing fingers. For the second time in its history, the United States saw its AAA rating on long -term debt downgraded by a credit rating firm. Fitch Ratings said the downgrade of the US, which is now rated AA +, reflects the expected fiscal deterioration over the next three years, a high and growing general government debt burden, and the erosion of governance relative to AA - and AAA -rated peers over the last two decades that has manifested in repeated debt limit standoffs and last -minute resolutions. The federal government is now shelling out an unprecedented amount of money to pay interest on its debt. $476 billion in 2022, an increase of 35 % from the previous year. The nonpartisan Peter G. Peterson Foundation says Americans are likely to spend $9 trillion in interest on the debt over the next decade, making it perhaps the single largest federal expenditure in the coming years and crowding out other programs. Meanwhile, Democrats are blaming Republicans, Republicans are blaming Democrats, the US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is calling the Fitch Ratings decision flawed and unwarranted. And all of this is just an example of politicians' highest and best use, recklessly spending other people's money, our money, recklessly printing more money to give to themselves and their corporate cronies, and then blaming the other parties for problems and one big act of fiction to spin the illusion that the US is a two -party system when it's actually just a one -party system, the business party. Republicans, Democrats, it doesn't matter, they're all in on it and they carry on this ruse to keep us distracted, divided, dumb, numb, and poor, nice. So just to quickly explore why a downgrade in our US government bonds is bad, basically one of the main ways we pay interest on existing debt is by issuing more debt in the form of bonds. And we are already seeing countries around the world ditch the US dollar, so the last thing the government wants is our credit rating to continue to decline because less countries would choose to buy more government bonds, which we need to pay interest on our current debt. And like we explored in a video a month or so ago, countries had already stopped buying US bonds to the point where the Fed jumped in and started buying bonds. So we are already in this weird Ponzi scheme circle jerk situation where the US Treasury is issuing bonds and the Federal Reserve is one of the main purchasers of the bonds. Absolute insanity and it's not sustainable. And most people probably don't even know that in June, the national debt hit 32 trillion dollars. If you find this strange because it feels like only yesterday that the national debt was 20 trillion, you can be forgiven. It practically was. It was in 2017 that the national debt hit 20 trillion. You read that correctly. The US government racked up an astonishing 12 trillion dollars in 6 years. Sadly, this spending frenzy will have serious consequences for the future of our children and grandchildren and other countries see the writing on the wall. As this week, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa bricks to settle global trade in local currency ditching the US dollar. Also this week, the president of Brazil said, quote, Everyone knows that I defend the idea that we have our own currency to trade between countries. I've said publicly, why does Brazil need the dollar to trade with China? We can do it in our own currency. Why does Brazil need the dollar to trade with Argentina? And in a few weeks from August 2nd through the 24th, BRICS along with 20 other countries are going to a summit in South Africa to discuss ditching the dollar as the global reserve currency. And here's the deal. What's important to understand is that in addition to the fact that almost 80 % of all US dollars that currently exist were printed in just the last few years, over 60 % of all US dollars in circulation are actually outside of the US around the world. So keeping in mind, the more dollars that exist, the less valuable they are, the less goods and services we can buy with them. Imagine when countries stop using the dollar, and all that money outside of the country starts coming back here and exists here domestically, that in addition to countries dropping the US dollar for trading could cause a serious hyperinflation problem for us, where US dollars rapidly devalue, and everything becomes extremely expensive, especially things that we import, which we import way more than we export bears for the US dollar, while likely bullish for Bitcoin, crypto and other types of assets that limit our exposure to currency devaluation. And interestingly enough, Bitcoin has been more stable than gold and stocks, violent price action could ensue violent to the downside or upside. Well, there is a case to be made for the possibility of Bitcoin hitting $100 ,000 before the halving in April of 2024. Let's explore why. KPMG, one of the top four largest accounting firms in the world acknowledges the positive impacts Bitcoin can have on the environment. And here's why. Bitcoin mining can happen anywhere around the world where there is electricity. So a primary driver of where mining occurs has to do with how much electricity costs. Wherever there is cheap electricity, Bitcoin mining will gravitate to, and right now the cheapest form of energy is called waste energy. Energy that is produced but not consumed. Waste energy is energy that cannot be distributed or cannot be used in a cost -effective manner because it's remote. Things like off -flaring of gas, hydro that exceeds local demand and other forms of renewable energy that exceed local demand and do not have distribution mechanisms. So whether it's hydroelectric, solar or wind, all of those forms of energy tend to have a mismatch between where the energy is produced and where it's consumed. And there are situations when energy isn't used, it's wasted. So for example, if Bitcoin miners linked up to a solar panel that is overproducing energy that isn't being used actually subsidizes solar panels and solar energy. So Bitcoin actually subsidizes renewable energy. And it's decentralized nature where no one person, corporation, government or entity controls the network, Bitcoin can be an ESG driver. Cool. Let's check out some other bullish news. Bitcoin OG bets surprising sum on Bitcoin hitting $100 ,000 before the halving. Adam Back has joined a growing roster of market commentators who are bullish on the price of Bitcoin ahead of its next year's halving event. And as we discussed last week, BlackRock is also extremely bullish on Bitcoin, which has a lot of people extremely bullish as well. Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz says Larry Fink's Bitcoin support is game -changing. BlackRock CEO Larry Fink's recent endorsement of Bitcoin is the number one reason to be bullish on the asset right now, according to Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz. The most important thing that happened this year in Bitcoin is Larry Fink, Novogratz said in an interview with Bloomberg last week. The investment managers support caught investors by surprise last month after BlackRock filed to launch a Bitcoin spot ETF, an investment product yet to hit the U .S. market. And what's interesting to keep in mind as crypto investors is a BlackRock Bitcoin ETF wouldn't be possible without Bitcoin miners. With institutions like BlackRock Fidelity and ARK Investments all seeking SEC approval for Bitcoin ETFs, it's time to thank Bitcoin miners for laying the groundwork for industry expansion. But a spot Bitcoin ETF also raises the uncomfortable prospect of outflows in capital from mining stocks to Wall Street financial products, wherein banks enter a more favorable regulatory climate and benefit enormously from operating expense ratio, OER fees, built into the ETFs. As highlighted in an op -ed for CoinDesk this spring, miners will meanwhile face a lower margin environment with the halving of it next year, set to reduce the amount of mineable Bitcoin by 50 percent. So another interesting thing to keep in mind is that BlackRock is invested in the biggest Bitcoin mining company called Core Scientific to help it survive through a bankruptcy. And just this week, Core Scientific appoints Adam Sullivan as CEO amid restructuring process. The company claims to have seen a boost in liquidity in recent months and is expected to emerge from bankruptcy proceedings by the end of the year. And keeping all of these interesting things in mind, this is why a compelling case exists for a 100k Bitcoin before the halving. Bitcoin miners need Bitcoin price over $98 ,000 by the halving. To avoid being in the red, publicly listed Bitcoin mining companies will need the Bitcoin price to be at least $98 ,000 by the 2024 halving. So, do you think BlackRock, the largest asset manager in the world, and their efforts to launch a spot ETF, their investment in Core Scientific Bitcoin mining company, the recommendation for 84 % of investment portfolios to consist of Bitcoin, among other things, could cause some insane price action to the upside where Bitcoin reaches 100k before the halving?

Police Report Filed After Cardi B Throws Mic At Fan Who Tossed Beverage At Her During Vegas Show
"A woman hit by a microphone thrown by Cardi B during a performance over the weekend has filed a police report following the incident. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said on Monday Cardi B threw her microphone in the direction of a fan who tossed a drink at the rapper during her Las Vegas show. This was on Saturday. It's unclear if the concertgoer is the same person who filed the report. Spectators at the show caught the moment on video which showed a concertgoer throw a beverage at the rapper. Now while she is actually performing her song Bodak Yellow, Cardi B retaliated by pelting her mic at the fan who was escorted out by security moments later. A rep for Cardi B did not respond to CBS News' request for comment. The artist has yet to address the incident directly, but she did retweet a video of it. Prior to the incident, rapper Cardi B was heard asking audience members to splash some water on her. So she got exactly what she asked for. Now the incident marks a troubling trend of fans dangerously interacting with artists at live shows, Bebe Rexha, Drake, Harry Styles, Kid Cudi. They were all recently hit by cell phones from audience members at their shows. Country music star Kelsea Ballerini was also hit in the eye after a fan tossed a bracelet at the singer. Now Cardi B and this mic throwing incident happened during a outdoor set on Saturday at Dry's Beach Club in Las Vegas. Common sense is not so common. If you're a fan and you're going to a show to see your favorite artist, I don't care if it's Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, don't throw stuff on stage. That's common sense. These people are here performing, they're making money, they're doing what they do. Why would you throw something on stage? Why would you throw a beverage? Even if she's jokingly saying, splash me with water, she doesn't mean throw a beverage at her. That's common sense. I think what actually happens is people are turned up, they're drinking and they're having a good time and they just lose their selves in the ambiance of the moment. But common sense tells you if these people are on stage performing, Drake, Kid Cudi, people like that, very popular artists, obviously fans love them, they have adoring fans. But act like you got some common sense is basically what I'm trying to say. So we're going to keep you posted on this. Our Cardi B story again, she threw her microphone at a fan who basically tossed a beverage at her during a show in Las Vegas. You guys have been logged into another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derek Andre Flemming, wishing everyone a great Tuesday. Take care, guys.
Appeals court rejects Trump effort to block Pence testimony
"And appeals court ruling has cleared the way for Mike Pence to testify about the events leading up to the January 6th riot at the U.S. capitol. A U.S. circuit Court of Appeals panel rejected a bid by Donald Trump to block his former vice president Mike Pence from testifying before the grand jury that for months has been investigating the January 6th attack and efforts to subvert the 2020 election. Trump's attorneys had cited executive privilege concerns. It's not clear when Pence might testify, but it would be a milestone moment that could give prosecutors a key first person account of events, the former governor of Indiana has spoken extensively about Trump's pressure to reject Biden's victory and in an interview with CBS News face the nation, he said, will obey the law will tell the truth, in his 2022 memoir, so help me God, Pence described Trump as my friend, but says therefore your relationship did not end well, he writes about how angry he was about the mob that wanted to kill him, while gingerly trying not to alienate supporters of the man that egged them on.

51 Intelligence Officials Caught in Deliberate Election Interference
"I'm continuing my discussion of the 51 intelligence officials who signed a letter, a letter that we now know is itself misinformation, if not disinformation. And the term disinformation is more accurate here because it's a deliberate lie. Put out by the Biden campaign and then taken up by two groups of accomplices. Of course it's the 51 intelligence officials themselves. They really knew that they were put up to it, but they agreed to be put up to it. And they agreed to testify to something that they knew was cooked up by the Biden campaign. They might have suspected that this they might not have known much about the letter like who wrote it. We have no we have no idea what was on the Hunter Biden laptop, but they agreed, okay, listen, we're all signing this letter. It's going to help the Biden campaign. And this is the point. Mike morell was asked in questioning, why did you do it? And he's very clear. He goes, quote, I'm doing it. He says, in part two, help Biden to win the election. So a blatant admission that this is false information. Now, obviously there are two purposes to this. One of this, one of them is to cover up Biden family corruption and we're seeing that that cover up continues. Notice how little reporting there is in the media about this. Now I was happy to see that CBS News alone of the three networks did cover the latest developments on the senior IRS agent who's blowing the whistle. They did a segment on this, but nothing from ABC, nothing from NBC. And this is also not just corruption, but election interference. It's election interference. Why? Because the purpose of the letter quite clearly was to mislead the American public of the American public was getting wind. Now it's hard to get wind of it because the media was suppressing it. There was digital censorship, but if you heard about the Biden Hunter Biden laptop, you're like, oh my gosh, it has all this evidence of corruption. This might affect the way that I vote, here with these 51 intelligence officials. Well, you know more than you do. We really don't know what's going on behind the scenes. Don't worry about this. It's Russian disinformation.
Watergate on Steroids With Rep. Byron Donalds
"Let's play cut 77. Iris whistleblower saying the federal investigation a Hunter Biden has been marred by special treatment, not a shock, but we're finally getting evidence of what we already knew to be true. Play cut 77. Attorney Mark lytle's client is a supervisory special agent at the IRS. Who's prepared to tell Congress the investigation he's been working on has been hampered by what he thinks is special treatment. Lytle wouldn't talk in specifics declining to identify either his client or the target of the investigation, his client helped conduct. But CBS News has learned the investigation the whistleblower worked on is about Hunter Biden. Today, lytle sent this letter to Congress, claiming his client could provide information that would contradict sworn testimony by a senior political appointee. CBS News has learned, that was attorney general Merrick Garland. Again, this is, this is all about Merrick Garland. You could only imagine how many interference campaigns are currently being run by the Biden regime, right? How many different layers of interference are they running? It's a very courageous whistleblower here. So is this whistleblower going to get whistleblower protection? Yeah, we're going to do everything we can to protect him. Because Charlie, I really want to make this. This is important. This is not Republican Democrat politics. We have a serious problem where in my view this is obstruction. They are stopping investigations. They are suppressing information. We already know how they acted during the last presidential campaign, suppressing free speech. We found out in a congressional hearing that Tony blinken when he was an adviser to Joe Biden during the campaign. He's the one that went around and got those 51 national security experts to sign this letter about how the Hunter Biden laptop was just Russian disinformation. And that was a flat out lie. Tony blinken is now Secretary of State. And he's been a disaster. You have this entire apparatus around Joe Biden to protect Joe Biden so that the radical left agenda can move forward without a misstep.
CBS News: IRS Supervisor Cites 'Special Treatment' for Hunter Biden
"Here's the lawyer for the IRS agent saying hey man we got some information And my guys will want to talk My client wants to come forward to Congress He's ready to be questioned about what he knows and what he experienced under the proper legal protections Attorney Mark ladles client is a supervisory special agent at the IRS who's prepared to tell Congress the investigation he's been working on has been hampered by what he thinks is special treatment Typical steps that a law enforcement investigator would take were compromised because of political considerations Lidl wouldn't talk in specifics declining to identify either his client or the target of the investigation his client helped conduct Can you identify him I can't at this stage Jim But CBS News has learned the investigation that whistleblower worked on is about Hunter Biden What we're doing is being completely cooperative That was Biden two years ago After the DoJ opened an investigation into his finances The FBI collected what it believed was sufficient evidence to charge Biden with tax crimes And last year Senate's findings to the U.S. attorney in Delaware since then silence False Again that CBS News Now nothing these entities do is in the interest of promoting journalism Can we all be clear on that CBS ABC and NBC have an agenda protect the liberal movement not notice They say the Democrats protect the liberal liberal movement at all costs That's why they suppress the Hunter Biden story They knew before the election
Is the IRS Coming For You?
"I want to turn to another story right now because this is important. The IRS, the IRS is coming after you. I would suspect they're going after everyone right now because they just got this big infusion of cash and they're hiring 30,000 new agents. Because they get a revamp how they're going after, you know, this is the same group that wanted to get access. To your checking account. When I say you're checking, I mean it because they were checking accounts for everyone. If you had more than $600 worth of transactions in your checking account, the IRS wanted to take a peek. It makes me concerned. Concerned for the country concerned for conservatives, because the last time I remember the IRS doing some funky stuff, with conservatives was actually under the Barack Obama administration. Remember Lois Lerner? Remember how the feds were trying to go after Tea Party conservatives? I mean, when you think about the infusion of new IRS agents, you combine it with what just happened to Matt taibbi, the reporter who, by the way, was well known for his liberal stance until he happened to get the scoop from Elon Musk. Now he's persona non grata. The IRS showed up at his doorstep. On the morning that he was set to testify before Congress. I mean, that's kind of scary stuff. You think about Jim Rosen, the Fox News reporter, who had the Barack Obama administration, spying on him or Sheryl Atkinson, who was at CBS News at the time and she has said, they went after her as well. So when you consider that they're hiring all these new IRS agents, I think it's worth also considering, are they after you because of how you are registered to vote?

James Rosen Shares a Story About Antonin Scalia
"One of the first things I did when I first came to Washington as a correspondent for the Fox News channel where I spent 19 years way back in 1999 was to write a letter to justice Scalia and ask for an interview. And he responded on Supreme Court stationary. At that time, Fox News was not well known. We were often confused by those in the credentialing business for various public events with Fox 5, the local affiliate, and we were not yet as well known or on our way to ratings dominance as at that particular time. And Scalia wrote back to me on Supreme Court stationary. And he said, I am a fan of the Fox News channel. That was bracing to hear in late 1999. And he said, I have no doubt as I had promised that you would conduct a dignified interview. He said, unfortunately, I have a policy as a judge, not to make a spectacle of myself by doing television interviews. And I wrote back politely to say, then what but a spectacle could it be when a sitting Supreme Court Justice sits before a bank of PBS cameras, which is where I first got to know him when I was a high school student watching him on television in the old Fred friendly debate program, the constitution that delicate balance. What other than a spectacle could it be when a Supreme Court Justice sits before a bank of PBS cameras and debates hypothetical scenarios with other eminent minds like Dan Rather and Gerald Ford and Sandra Day O'Connor. And he wrote back to me again on stationary to say, in essence, a rare concession to win from Antonin Scalia from justice Scalia, you're right, he said, I probably shouldn't have done the constitution that delicate balance. And which I did in exceeding to the import tunings of an old friend in Fred friendly, who had been previously the president of CBS News. We agreed to meet for off the record lunches. We had two of them. And the contents of the lunches will remain off the record. But, you know, we had this extraordinary correspondence back and forth. It got even a more amusing after that.

CBS News: More Young People Are Suffering Heart Attacks
"Study found that young people are actually most at risk in this case, according to cedars Sinai hospital, the number of heart attack deaths among 25 to 44 year olds in the U.S. over the first two years of the pandemic was 30% higher than predicted. Doctor slinger is here on set with us to talk more about it. She's editor at large for public health at Kaiser health news and she is also an infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist and a CBS News medical contributor, doctor Gander. Thank you for being here. What stood out to you in this study? I think the fact that you're seeing such a big increase specifically in the youngest age group. So the 25 to 44 year old, you saw this 30% increase in the risk of death from heart attack. And that really is quite striking. That's not a group an age group in which you normally see heart attacks much less dying from a heart attack. So to do a study like this, you look at the years prior to the pandemic and the typical rate of heart attack death in that age group. And then you see it increase and you wonder what's the new variable? And so the pandemic is that new variable. That's right. So these researchers looked at ten years of data across the U.S. all the death certificates that get filed with the CDC. That data. And so what they saw is prior to the pandemic, heart attack, deaths were actually dropping. And then that trend reverses and you see those deaths go up, especially among that youngest age group during the pandemic. And do we know why the why younger people might be more at risk or we don't know for sure. And in fact, these death certificates are probably not even capturing the fact that they might have had COVID. They're really just saying, did you die from a heart attack or not? What we do know, however, is that younger people were less likely to protect themselves against COVID than older people, less likely to mask, less likely to take other mitigation measures. And they were also farther back in line to get vaccinated. So they were not protected with vaccination until later in the pandemic, those might have been a factor here. So basically,
