‘Slow-motion insurrection’: How GOP seizes election power

In the weeks leading up to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a handful of Americans — well-known politicians, obscure local bureaucrats — stood up to block then-President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn a free and fair vote of the American people.

Anderson, R. – Car (WR)

Robby Anderson Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: It’s odd to say, but Anderson was somewhat of a Jarvis Landry-type fantasy asset last year. He finished with more than 15.5 half PPR points just twice, but he also scored fewer than 8.0 half PPR points just four times, offering a level of consistency we hadn’t seen out of him. It’s because they used him in the possession-style role with a shorter average depth of target than he was getting with the Jets. The Panthers lost Curtis Samuel in free agency, but gained Terrace Marshall in the draft, and will get Christian McCaffrey back from injury, so the loss of Samuel doesn’t do a whole lot for projections. D.J. Moore started coming on more as the year went on, though the switch to Sam Darnold could prove to be a good thing for Anderson, who was Darnold’s teammate with the Jets. It’s still the same offense, and Anderson proved he’s able to contribute in a big way, making him somewhat of a safe WR3/4 option with WR2 upside should Darnold favor him as the top option.

Jefferson, J. – Min (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Justin Jefferson, WR, Minnesota Vikings (6/23) Advice: All Jefferson did in his first year was produce one of the greatest rookie seasons of all time in one of the most efficient manners imaginable. While that does scream regression, his talent and production also scream No. 1 receiver you should draft in Round 2 or Round 3. What makes Jefferson’s rookie numbers even more impressive is that he only had six catches for 72 yards in his first two games combined. Over the next 14 weeks he averaged 5.9 catches and 95 yards per week. While he can’t maintain his 11.2 yards per target from 2020, he could maintain the 26% target share he enjoyed in those final 14 weeks. Even with the regression, any kind of increase in pass volume for the Vikings would make Jefferson a threat to Davante Adams as the No. 1 wide receiver in Fantasy. In Dynasty, he’s already a threat as a Tier 1 receiver worth a first-round pick in a Dynasty startup. (CBSSports.com)

Zach Wilson Highlights

BYU QB Zach Wilson
Junior 6’3 210 lbs

After an impressive 2020 season, BYU QB Zach Wilson is finally getting the recognition he deserves. Before the season, he wasn’t even thought to be “draftable,” but now some view him as a potential No. 2 overall pick right behind Clemson star Trevor Lawrence. Justin Fields, Trey Lance & Kyle Trask are also viewed as top QB prospects.

While Wilson may not win the Heisman, it’s incredible that he’s even getting this kind of attention. The most impressive thing about Zach Wilson has been his arm strength. Most people knew about his mobility & playmaking ability outside of the pocket, but he’s shown that he can stay in the pocket and deliver a beautiful deep ball like Josh Allen & Patrick Mahomes from time to time. It’ll be interesting to see how he’s viewed as a draft prospect throughout the draft season.

EPA UPDATES PLAN TO LIMIT SCIENCE USED IN ENVIRONMENTAL RULES

The Trump administration has formally revised a proposal that would significantly restrict the type of research that can be used to draft environmental and public health regulations, a measure that experts say amounts to one of the government’s most far-reaching restrictions on science.

Kupp, C. – LAR (WR)

Cooper Kupp Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/9) Advice: It seemed like the Rams wanted to stretch the middle of the field with Kupp at times over the last couple years, though Jared Goff’s inability to accurately throw the ball downfield hindered Kupp’s upside. Of the eight deep targets he saw in 2020, just one was catchable. Kupp’s not a burner by any means, but if he doesn’t have splash plays, he’s not going to be anything more than a boring PPR asset. There’s more to his game than what we’ve seen, and it’s possible that Matthew Stafford unlocks it. He should be treated as a safe, high-floor WR2. (FantasyPros.com)

Beckham Jr., O. – Cle (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Odell Beckham, WR, Cleveland Browns (6/23) Advice: Once a megastar, Odell Beckham is now no more than a No. 3 Fantasy receiver who shouldn’t be drafted before Round 7. Beckham is working his way back from yet another major injury and simply hasn’t been the same player in Cleveland. Beckham has reach 100 yards just twice in 23 games with the Browns as his catch rate has fallen 10% since his days as a Giant and his targets per game have fallen more than 25%. Even if Beckham were to regain every ounce of athleticism he once had, Kevin Stefanski’s system and the Browns’ crowded group of pass catchers would still limit the receiver’s upside. At 29 years old, he could still have a few good years left, but you should look to trade him in Dynasty if he gets off to a fast start in 2021. (CBSSports.com)

Facebook CTO says tech pessimism is ‘founded on real concerns of the negative impacts of technology’

Facebook’s Chief Technology Officer Mike Schroepfer believes the pessimism surrounding technology in the world today is “founded on real concerns of the negative impacts of technology.”

In an interview on Tuesday with the president of the Oxford Union, the Oxford University debating society, Schroepfer said that in some cases “we haven’t really always done the homework upfront” and thought about what a “bad actor” might do with a particular product before releasing it.

Pat Freiermuth Highlights

Penn State TE Pat Freiermuth
Junior 6’5 258 lbs

A lot of people compare Penn State TE Pat Freiermuth to the great Rob Gronkowski. He wears the same jersey number, grew up in New England where Gronk played & he’s just a big strong Tight End who looks very similar in size. Hence why they call him “Baby Gronk.” It’s always high praise when you get compared to someone like Gronk. While it’s not fair to expect Freiermuth to be as good as Gronk, he still has shown that he’sworthy of at least being a Day 2 pick. There’s a reason why he’s currently as one of the top Tight Ends in next year’s draft class along with Kyle Pitts. Like Pitts, Baby Gronk is a complete Tight End.

Timeline of National Guard Deployment to Capitol

On the day of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, the first National Guard members arrived to assist at about 5:40 p.m. By then, most of the violence had subsided.

In the critical minutes before rioters had breached the Capitol building around 2 p.m., the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police force and the mayor of Washington, D.C., put out urgent requests for guard backup. But it took more than an hour to get formal approval for their deployment, and then nearly three more hours for the first guard reinforcements to arrive.

The D.C. National Guard reports to the president.

In a recorded video the following day, President Donald Trump claimed that he “immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders.” But Trump’s claim that he acted quickly is contradicted by news reports citing unnamed sources who say the president initially resisted efforts to bring in the National Guard at the outset of the Capitol riot.

False Claim of ‘No Flag’ Above White House

Before President Joe Biden’s inauguration, social media users shared a false claim that there was no flag flying over the White House — suggesting it was a sign that the military had taken control of the government. In fact, the flag was flying above the White House on Jan. 20, and Biden is president.
