Liz Cheney and Elise Stefanik represent ‘battle for the soul of the party’

It was a tale of two House Republican Conference chairs.

Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, who currently holds the No. 3 leadership job in the GOP, said at a news conference this week that Americans deserve to know the “truth” about January 6, which is that “Nancy Pelosi bears responsibility, as speaker of the House, for the tragedy” — even though she is not responsible for day-to-day security operations.

Obama called Trump a ‘corrupt motherf—er,’ a ‘racist, sexist pig,’ and a ‘f—ing lunatic,’ a new book reportedly says

After leaving office in 2017, President Barack Obama, known for his affable nature, largely didn’t speak out against his successor, President Donald Trump.

But by the time the 2020 presidential campaign came around, the gloves were off.

With Joe Biden in the throes of a campaign to unseat an incumbent president, Obama made several high-profile campaign appearances for his former vice president where he slammed Trump.

He also voiced plenty of R-rated criticism of Trump behind the scenes, according to “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Donald Trump,” a new book by Edward-Isaac Dovere, a staff writer at The Atlantic. The Guardian on Wednesday reported on excerpts from the book, set to be released next week.

Stealing Arizona for Trump Is Costing Shadowy Groups Millions of Dollars

After months of confusion, wild conspiracy theories, and court battles to keep the funders of the bogus audit in Maricopa County private, some details have finally been revealed.

On Thursday morning, Doug Logan, the CEO of Cyber Ninjas, the Florida company with no prior election audit experience that’s running the recount, issued a press release listing the donors who’ve collectively have coughed up a massive $5.7 million to fund this charade.

Conner, J. – Ari (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for James Conner, RB, Arizona Cardinals (6/23) Advice: James Conner joined the Arizona Cardinals this offseason, placing him in a committee with Chase Edmonds. The uncertainty around his role makes Conner a high-upside No. 3 running back draftable as early as Round 5. Conner has actually been more efficient as a pass catcher than Edmonds, but the expectations is that Conner will handle the early down and short yardage work while Edmonds works more in the passing game. Kliff Kingsbury’s offense has produced 34 running back touchdowns over the past two seasons, giving Conner top-15 upside. (CBSSports.com)

RB Trey Sermon – Combine/Draft Scout

Ohio State running back Trey Sermon left the national championship game against No. 1 Alabama with an injury Monday night and did not return. Sermon was taken to the locker room after the Buckeyes’ first offensive series, during which he carried the ball once for 2 yards. Master Teague III, who began the season as the starter, was in for the second series and had three carries, including an 8-yard run for a touchdown. Teague scored again from four yards out in the second quarter after the Buckeyes recovered an Alabama fumble. Sermon, a graduate transfer from Oklahoma, broke out with 331 rushing yards in the Big Ten championship and another 193 yards in the semifinal win over Clemson. – AP College Football

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.

Blackface Photo Doesn’t Show Clintons

A photo of two people, one of whom is in blackface, has been circulating online for years with the unfounded claim that it shows Bill and Hillary Clinton. A Twitter user said he posted the photo in 2015, even though he had no evidence it was the Clintons, to “stir interest.”

Dynasty Sleepers: Quarterbacks (2021 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty sleeper quarterbacks are a different breed. At running back, we can tell stories of young backs climbing to the top of a depth chart, like James Robinson. At wide receiver, we have a rich history of physically gifted players overcoming rocky college journeys to ascend to the top of the sport, like Tyreek Hill.

In contrast, quarterbacks almost always fall in line with draft capital — 23 of the top 30 dynasty signal-callers were once first-round picks. The ones who have broken through are legends at this point. Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, and Kirk Cousins have all dominated the headlines for the last two decades. Identifying a sleeper quarterback carries the most reward in Superflex scoring, as you can secure a decades-long lineup piece for minimal capital. It’s time to slap on a blindfold and throw some darts.

Watson, D. – Hou (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Deshaun Watson, QB, Houston Texans (6/23) Advice: When he’s on the field, Watson is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, but as of publication it’s not even clear if Watson will be playing in 2021. Watson could very well be facing discipline from the NFL even if he avoids legal trouble after being accused of sexual misconduct in the offseason, putting his availability very much in doubt. And then there’s the question of where he’s going to play — he has demanded a trade and has reportedly told the Texans he will refuse to play for them again. That’s an awful lot of red flags, and the truth is, we may not have any real sense of how this will all play out until we get closer to the season. If we knew Watson would play 17 games in 2021, we’d consider him a Round 5 pick, but it’s impossible to accurately define his Fantasy value at this time. (CBSSports.com)

Viral Video Doesn’t Show Fraud by Election Workers in PA

A video from a livestream of the vote-counting process in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, shows election workers transcribing votes from damaged ballots so they could be scanned and recorded, according to the county. Social media users are sharing the video with the false suggestion it shows workers committing voter fraud.


Chiefs 2021 7-round mock draft v3.0: Trading down from first round

There are just 18 days to go until the 2021 NFL draft.

Each Monday leading up to the draft, I’ll be presenting a new 7-round mock draft scenario with a different theme. This week, we’re doing something that Brett Veach hasn’t done before during his tenure as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. We’re going to trade down and out of the first round of the draft.

Cramer’s lightning round: I like Plug Power

3D Systems: ”I think you can own that, but it ain’t going to make more than a dollar or two, so you be the judge.”

Cracker Barrel: “I’m not that interested in it.”

Zebra Technologies: “This Zebra, which is now one of those companies that people are selling in order to buy new IPOs, is a great company and I think as it comes down you can accumulate it, but at the same time since you got a $50 [cost] basis you should take some of your money out and just let the house money run.”

Plug Power: “I like Plug. … I would not have liked it if it weren’t for the acquisitions. They made it exciting for me.”

Nokia: “We’re not buyers in Nokia because they have a product that’s expensive and not as good as some others.”

Teacher Framed by Joel Greenberg in Scheme That Triggered Matt Gaetz Investigation Speaks

Brian Beute had been a teacher for almost two and half decades when he got the idea in his head to run for local office. A week after Beute filed his paperwork to run for tax collector of Seminole County, Florida, the school where he’d worked for 17 years received an anonymous letter falsely accusing him of an improper relationship with a student. Soon, sock-puppet accounts appeared online parroting the same lie. Beute went on administrative leave, and two weeks later, an investigation by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Department cleared his name.
Beute went back to work, and kept campaigning. It would take almost eight months before local police, and later federal investigators, would unravel the scheme and ultimately arrest the man responsible for spreading those lies: Joel Greenberg, the Seminole County tax collector Beute sought to unseat. In addition to attempting to smear Beute as a pervert and a racist, Greenberg was later accused of a host of other crimes — 33 in total — including using drivers licenses confiscated by his office, embezzling and diverting nearly half a million taxpayer dollars to purchase cryptocurrency and sports memorabilia, and defrauding a Covid relief program. It was many months before Beute realized the investigation that started with Greenberg’s false accusations against him would ultimately threaten to take down a sitting congressman and one of former President Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz.
