    A threat made against a school in Loudoun County was found to be not credible, authorities said. The Safe2Talk app alerted Leesburg police to a rumored threat involving Heritage High School on Evergreen Mills Road SE, they said on Tuesday, Nov. 15. "At this time, we do not believe this to be a credible threat," police said in a statement. As the investigation continues, police say there will be extra patrols at the school during school hours this week. The Leesburg Police Department is working with Loudoun County Public Schools on the investigation.
    There is no evidence that the violent threats that forced students and staff to evacuate Dieruff High School in Allentown Thursday, Nov. 10 were "credible," say city police. The school district and police department both received multiple warnings of a violent attack at the school this morning via the anonymous tipster app Safe2Say, officials wrote.  The building was placed on lockdown at about 10 a.m. before dismissing an hour later "out of an abundance of caution, they said.  "The tips received through the Safe2Say program were thoroughly investigated and found to be unsubstantiated," said Allentown police Asst. Chief Michael Becker.   "There is no evidence to indicate that the threats were credible, and there is no danger to the community," he added.  It is illegal to knowingly give law enforcement false information, the department said.  Anyone with knowledge of the threats is asked to call the Community Outreach Unit at 610-437-7741. 
    A panel of Fox News pundits unanimously destroyed denials from Herschel Walker in response to a raft of allegations he encouraged a former girlfriend to get multiple abortions. The Republican nominee for senate in Georgia has repeatedly denied a Daily Beast report — and other subsequent reports — that he paid the mother of one of his children for an abortion. The woman, who has remained anonymous, said the ardent anti-abortion candidate twice encouraged her to have an abortion. Walker has also faced vocal criticism from another son, right-wing influencer Christian Walker, who accused him of violence, dishonesty, and failing to raise his many children. Walker’s scattershot denials have been met with skepticism. They have gone up against evidence obtained by the Daily Beast, which included a receipt from the abortion clinic and a $700 check sent from Walker to the woman. On Sunday, a panel on Fox News show MediaBuzz unanimously dismissed his efforts to dodge the story. “I must say Herschel Walker’s initial denial, given that the $700 check to the unnamed woman during came during the period...

    The new school year got off to a shaky start for some students in Maryland who were targeted by a bomb threat, officials said. At approximately 7:15 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office received an alert from Oakdale High School about a potential bomb threat that had been made. The threat came on the second day of classes for students. According to investigators from the sheriff’s office, the threat was air-dropped onto the phones of Oakdale High School students, prompting officials to put the building in a hold in place status, which means that all students and staff remained in place during the investigation. Deputies from the sheriff's office swept the school and found “no indication of a credible threat,” they said. Once the building was declared safe, the hold status was lifted and the school returned to its normal operations immediately following the search. Following the scare, a Frederick County Sheriff’s Office detective remained at the scene as a precaution, and there was an increased police presence throughout the school day. The incident remains...

    By María Méndez and Jolie McCullough, The Texas Tribune May 28, 2022 "Trump and Cruz propose “hardened” one-door schoolhouses. Experts say that’s not a credible solution." was first published by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues. Sign up for The Brief, our daily newsletter that keeps readers up to speed on the most essential Texas news. As people in Uvalde and across the country groped for solutions in response to the latest mass school shooting, Texas Republican officials pointed, again, to school doors. “Have one door into and out of the school, and have ... armed police officers at that door,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz said on Fox News the day after a gunman killed 19 elementary school students and two teachers. [Texas already “hardened” schools.

    On Monday, March 21, Senate confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson — President Joe Biden’s nominee to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court — got underway. And some Republican senators, from Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, have tried to discredit Jackson by claiming that she is soft on crime. But when former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was interviewed by MSNBC’s Ari Melber on March 21, he dismissed those claims as cheap political theatrics. Melber, himself an attorney, brought Steele on his show “The Beat” along with activist Barbara Arnwine, founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition — and Melber noted that the anti-Jackson view on the far right is that she “loves criminals and wants to make sure they get out of prison right away so they can keep doing crime.” Steele responded, “It’s all politics…. It’s the ongoing trope…. that this is how you own the libs…. over issues like law and order…. Look, the reality is: There is no hook to hang a hat on...
    Social media threats that forced a Hudson Valley middle school and high school to close for two days were deemed not credible and the buildings are scheduled to reopen with new security measures put in place, officials announced. In Dutchess County, the Poughkeepsie City School District canceled classes at the two buildings on Tuesday, Feb. 22, and Wednesday, Feb. 23 due to a social media threat that was made on Snapchat.

    School districts across America are on heightened alert Friday as unfounded threats warning of shootings and violence reportedly are circulating on TikTok.   One of the posts "refers to a threat to school safety ‘for every school in the USA, even elementary,’ on Friday, December 17, 2021," according to a message sent out by the Surry County School District in North Carolina. But the district added that "while we do not believe the threat to be credible, we are closely monitoring the situation."  In Maryland, Baltimore County Public Schools tweeted that it is "aware of an anonymous threat posted on TikTok targeting all schools in the United States," yet "law enforcement agencies have investigated this threat and determined that it originated in Arizona and is not credible."  The social media platform itself issued a statement saying "we handle even rumored threats with utmost seriousness, which is why we're working with law enforcement to look into warnings about potential violence at schools even though we have not found evidence of such threats originating or spreading via TikTok."  This is a developing story.

    Agriculture Sec. Tom Vilsack cast doubt on the Farm Bureau's prediction that the cost of Thanksgiving dinner was up 14 percent this year, pointing instead to the Agriculture Department's analysis finding prices are up around 5 percent this year.  'Well there’s no question that there’s an increase in cost,' Vilsack said when asked about the Farm Bureau's analysis. 'But the Farm Bureau basically surveyed about 218 people.'  'We actually took a look at prices of 29,000 retail outlets across the country, so I'm very confident that our numbers reflect what folks are actually seeing at the grocery store,' the secretary continued on CNN.  'Of course the other good news is that people are actually going to be able to put a Thanksgiving dinner on the table. It's not a situation where we’re dealing with shortages of turkeys. Everybody's gonna get a turkey that wants a turkey.'  'We actually took a look at prices of 29,000 retail outlets across the country, so I'm very confident that our numbers reflect what folks are actually seeing at the grocery store,' the secretary continued...

                        Henry County Superior Court Chief Judge Brian Amero has reportedly done away with a lawsuit that alleged election fraud in Fulton County, Georgia during last year’s presidential election. Members of the nonprofit VoterGA wanted to inspect Fulton County’s mail-in ballots. This, after four senior poll managers signed sworn affidavits indicating they handled counterfeit ballots during the Fulton County hand count audit. According to The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) on Tuesday, a team of state investigators said they found no counterfeit ballots. The investigators reportedly acted on behalf of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Amero, in dismissing the lawsuit Wednesday, said the people who filed the lawsuit “failed to allege a particularized injury,” according to The Conservative Brief. Favorito told The Georgia Star News on Wednesday that Raffensperger and state investigators “tampered with the ballots and violated Georgia law.” “The ballots were under seal by normal certification, and they would have had no business to tamper with them,” Favorito said, adding he and members of his team will...

    The United Kingdom and Western allies have warned they have credible intelligence of an imminent terror attack against Kabul airport, where thousands of people crowd outside the gates in hope of catching a flight out. Speaking Thursday morning, British Armed Forces Minister James Heappey told UK television audiences in a series of appearances that the “credibility” of the intelligence now held was so strong about what he described as an imminent and deadly terror suicide terror attack against the crowds at Afghan airport, they had to take the decision to order them to disperse. The order for people to stop crowding out the airport on Wednesday night came from the United States embassy, the United Kingdom embassy, and others. That it was made as the last handfull of flights evacuating Western citizens and at-risk Afghans from the country prepared to depart was a difficult one, Heappey claimed, but the huge numbers of people fleeing the Taliban was too tempting a target for a terror group he called the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – Khorasan Province (ISIS-K). Heappey said:...
    Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. Miller-Meeks told host Steve Hilton that she believed “credible information” showed the origins were a laboratory leak and not naturally occurring. Partial transcript as follows: Well, as a committee, we have asked repeatedly for there to be an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, and even back in April at one of our committee meetings with Dr. Fauci and Dr. Walensky of the CDC, we asked this question again of the chair, and one of the other members had said that they were looking at doing an investigation through the Science and Technology Committee. As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. And I think as...
    On Tuesday, CNN correspondent Kyung Lah chased down Arizona Senate President Karen Fann (R) for an impromptu parking lot interview after requesting an interview more than a dozen times. Fann has been among the most ardent proponents of the election “audit” currently being conducted in Maricopa County. The Republican-dominated state legislature authorized a Florida firm called Cyber Ninjas, which had never conducted an election audit before, to conduct the election “audit.” At one point during this ongoing, weeks-long process, “auditors” were looking for evidence of bamboo fibers because, so went a conspiracy theory, that some of the ballots had been flown in from Asia. In other instance, former state Rep. Anthony Kern (R), who was present at the Capitol on January 6, was identified as one of ballot counters. Lah’s interview with the state senate president revealed an interesting insight into Fann’s reasoning behind supporting what the Republican-dominated Maricopa County Board of Supervisors called a “spectacle that is harming all of us” in a letter to Fann. Fann: I don’t know what’s legit, what isn’t legit. But why wouldn’t we...
    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman and others appeared to blame former President Donald Trump Tuesday for making the Wuhan lab-leak theory political and thus the reason why reporters didn’t find the theory credible.  During a segment on CNN, Haberman responded to anchor John Berman’s statement about how reporters went from dismissing the possibility of COVID-19 escaping a Wuhan lab as a "conspiracy theory" to now giving serious credence to the idea.   "I think it is important to remember that part of the issue is when this was first being reported on and discussed back a few months after the pandemic had begun, was that then President Trump and Mike Pompeo, secretary of state, suggested they’ve seen evidence that this was formed in a lab and they also suggested that is was not released on purpose. But they refused to release the evidence showing what it was and so because of that made this instantly political," Haberman said.  TED CRUZ MOCKS WASHINGTON POST AS ‘CLOWNS’ AFTER FACT-CHECK DECLARES WUHAN LAB LEAK THEORY ‘SUDDENLY’ CREDIBLE Haberman said the Trump administration...

    Jamie Metzl, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and an adviser to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), on Monday joined the growing number of scientists and political leaders around the world who questioned the credibility of W.H.O.’s report on the origins of the coronavirus. Metzl said the report was compromised by Chinese government interference and did not provide enough evidence to rule out any hypothesis, including the Chinese coronavirus escaping from a Chinese laboratory. “People feel this must be a World Health Organization investigation. It’s not. It’s not an investigation and the World Health Organization isn’t doing it. It’s an independent committee with their Chinese government counterparts. So anything that they come out with is going to be a compromise, a consensus between this committee and the Chinese government,” Metzl told Laura Ingraham of Fox News. Metzl pointed out that the weight of reliable evidence – as opposed to Chinese government agents expecting their conclusions to be taken on faith – does not support W.H.O.’s official conclusion that laboratory origin is the least likely scenario for the origin...
    Several departments, including the Department of Justice (DOJ), which have investigated foreign meddling in the 2020 Presidential Election, deemed claims of external interference effecting election results “not credible.” The results of the investigation were made public in a Tuesday joint statement from the DOJ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), along with a joint report from the agencies. (RELATED: RNC To Create An Election Integrity Committee) The agencies stated that they “have no evidence that any foreign government-affiliated actor prevented voting, changed votes, or disrupted the ability to tally votes or to transmit election results in a timely manner; altered any technical aspect of the voting process; or otherwise compromised the integrity of voter registration information of any ballots cast during 2020 federal elections,” in the five-page report outlining the investigation’s key findings.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) made it clear on Tuesday that he does not consider Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D) denial of the mounting allegations of sexual harassment against him credible. “Do you believe the governor and his response to these allegations? Do you think what he is saying is credible at this point?” a reporter asked the mayor, who issued a clear response. “No,” de Blasio stated without hesitation: The New York City mayor has remained a consistent critic of Cuomo as the allegations of inappropriate behavior have continued to mount. Last week, a former press aide stepped forward, joining Cuomo’s other accusers. She alleged that the Democrat politician once invited her to his hotel room over two decades ago, when he led the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Former policy aide Ana Liss also jumped into the fray, alleging that Cuomo “allegedly called her ‘sweetheart,’ kissed her hand once, and asked personal questions such as if she had a boyfriend” when she worked for the governor between 2013 and 2015, as Breitbart News...
    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office dismissed Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean criticizing his COVID-19 response, taking a jab at her job in the process. Dean has been outspoken against Cuomo’s handling of the global pandemic. In particular, she’s been critical of his mandate requiring nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients, which resulted in thousands of deaths, including both of her in-laws. While Cuomo and his office have largely remained silent on Dean’s criticism, her recent comments calling out the “disaster” vaccine rollout prompted a reply. Richard Azzopardi, a spokesperson for Cuomo, attacked Dean and her job as a meteorologist in a reply to The Daily Mail. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: New York Admits Knowingly Undercounting Nursing Home Deaths After Quietly Changing Reporting Rules) “Every state has had issues with vaccine distribution because of lack of federal funds but we’re rapidly ramping up distribution and currently have administered more than 60 percent of the vaccines we have,” Azzopardi said after Dean called it “just another leadership failure” from Cuomo. “Last I checked, she’s not a credible source on anything except maybe...
    It’s one of the lasting political media battles over the last year has been one that no one could have ever predicted. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Fox News Chief Meteorologist Janice Dean. The issue, of course, is the governor’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic which has led to tens of thousands of deaths in New York State — a significant percentage to the hundreds of thousands across the nation. Cuomo earned early (premature) praise from a fawning media, largely due to his reassuring tone during coronavirus-related press conferences early in the outbreak. His “we’re all in this together” mien was a stark contrast to President Donald Trump’s “leave it to the states,” which, in hindsight, wasn’t … great. But Dean, known for her remarkably bubbly and consistently apolitical demeanor on Fox & Friends, was among the first to call BS on the Cuomo lovefest. Outraged by the death of both of her husband’s parents due to Covid-19, she was the first to pull back the veil and bravely call Cuomo out for mistakes she saw him make...
    The Fox News meteorologist who blames Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home policy for the deaths of her parents-in-law slammed the governor’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout in New York, saying he’s more interested in being a ‘celebrity.’ Janice Dean appeared on the Fox News Channel on Tuesday where she blasted the governor for the botched vaccination rollout, which she called a ‘disaster.’ ‘It is just another leadership failure from this governor,’ Dean said. Richard Azzopardi, a spokesperson for Cuomo, told DailyMail.com in response: 'Every state has had issues with vaccine distribution because of lack of federal funds but we're rapidly ramping up distribution and currently have administered more than 60 percent of the vaccines we have.  'Last I checked she's not a credible source on anything except maybe the weather.' Last spring, Dean emerged as a critic of Cuomo after the parents of her husband, Sean Newman, died in March after contracting COVID-19. Dean first lost her father-in-law, Michael Newman, in late March just hours after the family received a phone call that he had been feeling unwell. Janice Dean (left),...
    LINTHICUM, Md. (WJZ) — A written threat prompted a large police presence at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport Monday night, officials said. Southwest Airlines flight 2104 from Phoenix to Baltimore landed at BWI around 5:15 p.m., at which point law enforcement investigated what an airport spokesperson called a “suspicious message.” Specific details of the threat were not immediately available.

    Bradley Cortright November 9, 2020 0 Comments President-elect Joe Biden is poised to become the first Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years to win the state of Georgia in an election.  State officials have not yet certified the election results, and staffers for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign claim that a recount of the votes in that state will reveal evidence of “improperly harvested ballots and other irregularities that will prove that President Trump won Georgia fairly.” However, the state’s Lieutenant Gov. Geoff Duncan (R) dismissed those claims. During an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” Monday, he was asked if he had a reason to doubt other state officials’ statements that they have not found fraud.  Duncan responded, “My office has been in close communication with the secretary of state’s office and the attorney general’s office and made sure that if there’s any systemic examples of fraud or voter disenfranchisement across the voting base to let us know.”  He continued, “We’ve not had any sort of credible incidents raised to our level yet. And so we’ll continue to make sure that the opportunity to make...
    Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan (R) shut down any claims of voter fraud in his state while on CNN Monday morning — noting that there hasn’t been “any sort of credible examples.” CNN’s John Berman pointed out that President-Elect Joe Biden is leading in Georgia by 10,000 votes, despite the fact that no Democratic presidential nominee has won Georgia since 1992. “Well, we’re in the midst of the election process, like every other state is right now, making sure we count every legal ballot and the counties will individually certify later this week and the state will be able to take on that final certification. We’ll have plenty of time to digest exactly what the presidential election looked like here.” Ducan said. “Certainly proud of the efforts we’ve made in the general assembly being able to hold Republican majorities in the state senate and statehouse.” Berman then questioned how Biden could have such a lead in the state, noting that despite a potential recount, he’s done much better in Georgia than any other Democrat has in a long time. Duncan explained that they’re...

And Swan said his chief takeaway is that Trump “is not confronting reality when it comes to the virus.” He reviewed their contentious exchange about testing and how Trump keeps saying the U.S. has “done more tests than anyone in the world.” “That’s true. But it’s also not a particularly meaningful thing to say, because the reason the U.S. has had to do all these tests is because the virus spread undetected like wildfire through this country in February, March, April,” Swan said, “and it took a very long time to get the testing working and effective, and we’re still not there with these delays.” At one point the president claimed in the interview that there are people who say “you can test too much.” Swan was particularly bewildered by that claim and questioned Trump on what he’s talking about. Velshi asked, “Did you ever get an answer as to what manuals or...
    Donald Trump again denied having been briefed on the Russian bounty program paying the Taliban to target American troops in Afghanistan. “Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!” Trump tweeted Sunday night. It’s not just The New York Times reporting that Russia paid the Taliban to attack U.S. troops. The Washington Post reported that the program resulted in American deaths. The Wall Street Journal and Britain’s Sky News have also reported on the program, with their own sources confirming it. Trump’s denial is just the latest of a series from his White House, but the thing is, Trump’s White House doesn’t have a lot of credibility or a reputation for truth telling. A series of congressional Republicans asked for answers, with Trump’s latest denial coming in response to Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeting “Imperative Congress get to the bottom of recent media reports that Russian GRU units in Afghanistan have offered to pay the Taliban to kill American soldiers with the goal of...

    President Trump on Sunday night said the reason he wasn’t briefed on Russia’s alleged bounty to the Taliban to kill US forces in Afghanistan is because intelligence officials didn’t find the report credible. “Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP,” the president tweeted. “Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks, wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!” Earlier Sunday, the president backed up White House claims that he and Pence were unaware of the alleged bounty. The New York Times reported on the bounties Friday and claimed the president was made aware of the situation and discussed it in late March with the White House’s National Security Council. The report said several options were weighed — including sanctions and a complaint to be made via diplomatic channel — but the White House had yet to authorize any response. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe released statements on Saturday saying that Trump and Pence...

    President Donald Trump has denied that he was made aware of an intelligence report that Russia secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill American troops in Afghanistan.  According to an initial New York Times report published Friday Trump had been briefed on the operation, believed to be initiated by the notoriously violent Unit 29155 of the G.R.U, an arm of Russia’s military intelligence agency, citing officials with knowledge on the matter.    But Trump denied ever knowing about the operation, tweeting Sunday night that  neither he nor Vice President Mike Pence had been briefed. 'Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP. Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News @nytimesbooks wanting to make Republicans look bad!!!' he tweeted, but he did not deny the intelligence assessment itself.  However, a new Washington Post report published Sunday said that the Russian bounties offered to the Taliban militants are believed to have actually resulted in the deaths of several US service members.  Both Russia and the Taliban...
    President Trump said late Sunday night that he had just been briefed by intelligence officials about reports of an alleged Russian plot offering bounties to the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers, and "intel" told him they did not assess the intelligence to be "credible." “Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or @VP,” Trump tweeted, adding that it was “possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News” New York Times "wanting to make Republicans look bad.” The New York Times reported on Friday that a U.S intelligence assessment concluded that a Russian spy unit paid Taliban-connected militants in Afghanistan to kill U.S. and other coalition troops, even as the Trump administration sought to reach a peace deal involving the Taliban and the Afghan government. The New York Times further reported Trump was briefed about the bounties during an interagency meeting late in March and that officials developed a list of options to respond, but the outlet's sources said the administration had yet...
