David Webb on school decision to cover George Washington mural: ‘Something more dangerous is going on here’

Radio personality and the Fox Nation host of “Reality Check,” David Webb said that those that voted in favor of covering a controversial 1936 George Washington mural at a high school that includes images of slavery and the killing of a Native American are attempting to “rewrite their own version of history.”

On Tuesday, The San Francisco school board voted 4-3 to cover up — but not remove — the mural. The 13-panel “Life of Washington” will be preserved but covered by panels that show “the heroism of people of color in America, how we have fought against, and continue to battle discrimination, racism, hatred and poverty.”

Appearing on “Outnumbered Overtime,” Wednesday, Webb called the decision to cover up the mural an “act of cowardice” and said he believes that artwork could potentially do “a better job of teaching history to the students than these teachers.”

“This is someone who painted what was real and they’re covering up history. It’s an insult to art, it’s an insult to education, it’s an insult to telling history for what it is,” he said.

Webb reiterated his dissatisfaction with the decision and said he was worried about what it represents.

“There is something more dangerous here. If you remove or eliminate or obfuscate the truth you can create your own version of it and that’s what’s going on in a very liberal environment in San Francisco where they want to create a new history.”

Rep. Liz Cheney blasts GOP colleague Steve King over ‘appalling’ rape and incest remarks: ‘It’s time for him to go’

Westlake Legal Group Liz-Cheney-split Rep. Liz Cheney blasts GOP colleague Steve King over 'appalling' rape and incest remarks: 'It's time for him to go' Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/tech/companies/twitter fox-news/politics/judiciary/abortion fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics fox news fnc/media fnc b7ae9c63-e286-5c56-93ca-47a23a572bfa article

Rep. Liz Cheney blasted her Republican colleague Steve King on Wednesday over his asking if there would be “any population” without rape and incest.

“Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre,” the GOP lawmaker from Wyoming tweeted. “As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better.

REP. STEVE KING SLAMMED BY FELLOW GOP COLLEAGUES FOR ‘WHITE SUPREMACIST’ REMARK 

Cheney’s comments came after King, aiming to defend the pro-life stance of not allowing any exceptions for abortions, wondered whether everyone’s “family trees” included ancestors who were the product of rape or incest. His comments came as he spoke at the Westside Conservative Club.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said in Urbandale, Iowa, according to The Des Moines Register. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that.”

King inspired a heavy social media backlash. Among the strong responses, 2020 presidential candidate and Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, called for his resignation.

Cheney, who serves as the House Republican Caucus Chair, was one of many Republicans who blasted King earlier this year for telling The New York Times, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

King was later stripped of committee assignments and the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning his remarks.

Sharon Osbourne discusses being the ‘stability’ her granddaughters need following divorce of her son, Jack

Westlake Legal Group sharon Sharon Osbourne discusses being the 'stability' her granddaughters need following divorce of her son, Jack Jessica Napoli fox-news/entertainment/events/divorce fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc c7614c9e-f7f2-5847-a126-ea40cb326138 article

Jack Osbourne isn’t alone as he goes through the aftermath of a divorce; his parents — Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne — are right by his side.

Sharon, the “Talk” co-host, 66, opened up about her family’s difficult time and how it’s affecting her three granddaughters in a recent interview with People magazine.

She said Jack’s kids — Minnie Theodora, 18 months; Andy Rose, 4; and Pearl Clementine, 7 — will always have stability at “Nana’s and Papa’s.”

OZZY OSBOURNE’S SON JACK TELLS SELMA BLAIR SHE’S ‘NOT ALONE’ IN MS BATTLE

“When this happens in families — and it happens all the time — they have to have the stability somewhere,” she explained to the outlet. “Nana and Papa are still in the same house. Nothing’s going to change. You know what you’re going to get when you come here.”

Jack, 33, and his wife, Lisa Stelly, 32, finalized their divorce in March after Stelly filed for it last year. Sharon says she is proud of the new co-parents because they’ve been able to keep “all of that nastiness” away from the kids.

“Jack and Lisa are at a good place with each other and it’s working out and it’s civil,” Sharon revealed, adding “it’s been hard for Jack.”

SHARON OSBOURNE CLAIMS SIMON COWELL AXED HER FROM ‘X FACTOR’ DUE TO HER AGE

“The divorce has been really tough on him emotionally,” she explained, noting that Jack has been leaning on his rock-icon dad, 70, during his time of transition.

“With a guy, there’s only so much that I can say [and] that I can do. It’s really his dad that he talks to about that because Ozzy’s been divorced,” she said of Ozzy, who split from Thelma Riley in 1982.

“When Jack said that he was getting divorced, Ozzy cried. He said, ‘I’m crying for you because I know how painful it’s going to be, because I’ve been through it and I don’t want you to experience that pain,’” Sharon said.

She also described her “very special” bond with her granddaughters.

“It is one of the joys of growing old because it is a different kind of love,” she gushed.

Woman seen on video getting Tesla Model 3 chip implanted in arm to start car

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-a8d1324a95604b56bea95035c8283df6 Woman seen on video getting Tesla Model 3 chip implanted in arm to start car Melissa Leon fox-news/person/elon-musk fox-news/odd-news fox-news/auto/make/tesla fox-news/auto fox news fnc/auto fnc b9b0499a-c823-513d-ac57-ff5faab3f8bd article

One Tesla owner is hoping she’ll never lose her car key again.

Amie Dansby recently had her Tesla Model 3’s chip implanted in her forearm. The chip unlocks and starts the car.

Dansby, who goes by “Amie DD” online, is a software engineer, programmer and self-described “passionate technologist,” and now she can reportedly start up her wheels in a unique way.

Dansby uploaded a YouTube video on Aug. 8 titled “Tesla Model 3 Chip Install – Warning There is Blood,” during which she is seen going to a body modification studio and having her car’s RFID chip — encapsulated in a biopolymer — inserted in her arm.

WARNING: VIDEO MAY BE DISTURBING

In another video, “Tesla Model 3 Hack,” Dansby describes how she procured the chip from the card, saying she dissolved the keycard in acetone.

This is not Dansby’s first implanted RFID chip, short for radio-frequency identification.

“A few years ago I got this RFID implant in my hand,” she said in video footage, “and it’s just basic access control.”

“If I were to tap my hand to your phone, it would automatically open a browser and go to my webpage,” Dansby explains. “It also works with my front door.”

When she preordered her Tesla Model 3 a few years ago, Dansby said she found out that the keycard was going to use RFID-based technology to unlock and start the car.

TESLA FIXING ‘DOG MODE’ AFTER OWNER DISCOVERS POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS ISSUE

But when she tried to see if she could upload the software off the Tesla keycard, she discovered that she couldn’t write it to the chip already in her hand, Dansby said.

“So it’s pretty secure. Good job, Tesla,” she joked. “So I’m just going to take the chip that I have in my valet card and encapsulate it, and implant that one in my hand.”

Dansby, who is also a 3D printer and avid cosplayer, told The Verge that the chip works but that the range “isn’t the greatest,” and her arm has to be within an inch of the console.

POLICE: ALLEGED TESLA THIEF CAUGHT AFTER CAR RAN OUT OF POWER

She posted to Twitter on Monday that her forearm was also swollen following the modification.

“My arm was swollen right after (none of my other chip implants read the first few days). I may have upgrades but unfortunately my body still heals at a human rate,” she wrote.

On Aug. 2, Dansby had posted on Hackaday, where she chronicled her yearlong project to biohack the Tesla keycard, saying that the implant “was a success.”

“I didn’t even cry! My yearlong Tesla Model 3 bio implant hack project wouldn’t be possible without Amal at vivokey encasing my chip implant in biopolymer and Pineapple to install it safely. My cyberpunk upgrades are complete,” she wrote.

A brand-new Model 3 starts at $39,740, according to Tesla’s website.

Muslim cleric in Texas ordered to pay woman $2.5M in sexual exploitation lawsuit

Westlake Legal Group iStock-gavel Muslim cleric in Texas ordered to pay woman $2.5M in sexual exploitation lawsuit Louis Casiano fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/texas fox-news/us/religion/islam fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox news fnc/us fnc article 8d2cf2b5-8f81-5277-aced-956579bc44d0

A Dallas-area Muslim cleric was ordered Thursday to pay $2.5 million to a woman he’s accused of sexually exploiting.

District Court Judge Emily Tobolowsky ruled that the cleric, Imam Zia ul-Haq Sheikh, 50, must compensate the woman for mental anguish and other damages, The Dallas Morning News reported. Sheikh had been an imam at the Islamic Center of Irving, one of the biggest mosques in Texas.

In an email to the paper, he said he believed the judgment was in error.

“Unfortunately, litigation in this country does not always favor the truth,” he said. “In most cases, it boils down to how much financial stamina one has, and whether one has good legal representation.”

Sheikh was accused of sexually exploiting the woman — identified only as Jane Doe — after providing her with mental health services when she turned 18.

“Jane’s emotional dependency as a result of being counseled by defendant from age 13 to age 19 led Jane to be fearful of losing defendant’s support in her life, and therefore created a situation where Jane was unable to refuse defendant’s requests,” the lawsuit said, referring to Sheikh’s alleged requests for sexually explicit photos and videos, and, ultimately, for intercourse.

When the woman was 19, the pair had sex at a motel, according to the paper. Sheikh gave her a pregnancy test afterward to ensure he wouldn’t lose his job. He later cut off contact with her.

The woman’s attorney, Susan Adams, told the paper in a statement that the judgment “offers justice and hope not only to her but to other survivors of abuse.”

‘BH90210’ star Brian Austin Green says he would’ve skipped a standard reboot

Westlake Legal Group AP19225715753992 'BH90210' star Brian Austin Green says he would've skipped a standard reboot fox-news/entertainment/tv fnc/entertainment fnc Associated Press article Alicia Rancilio 2e81e49a-78af-5adb-854e-566b64fd3369

Brian Austin Green says if Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth and the other creators of “BH90210,” had approached him with a standard reboot of the 90s drama, he would’ve said no.

“I played David Silver for 10 years and that was enough for me, and they told me this idea and I liked the fact that I could go back and play David sort of. But I could also play this new character that I created and got to have fun with,” Green said.

In the six episodes of “BH90210,” the cast plays exaggerated versions of themselves as they come together to reboot “Beverly Hills, 90210.”

‘BH90210’ STAR SHANNEN DOHERTY WASN’T GOING TO DO REBOOT: ‘THINGS DRASTICALLY CHANGED’ AFTER LUKE PERRY DIED 

“I think the idea is amazing,” Green said. “I figured it would be fun and it was one of those things where either the fans are gonna like it, or they’re not. And we can’t make the show just based purely on what they want because if all they want is a straight reboot, the cast isn’t gonna give them that.”

Luke Perry, a member of the original cast, died in March after a massive stroke.

In a recent interview, Green talked about reteaming with his co-stars after nearly two decades.

THEN/NOW: SEE THE ‘BH90210’ CAST OVER THE YEARS

___

AP: “BH90210” pokes fun at tabloid stories or stereotypes about your real lives — like Tori Spelling has debt issues and films multiple reality shows and Jennie Garth has had failed marriages. Did that appeal to you?

Green: It was really important to come up with the right character stuff where we could do that. Like, for me, being married, obviously my wife (actress Megan Fox) and I have a lot of paparazzi stuff and tabloid stuff. So it was about for me coming up with a character where we could still have fun and people wouldn’t look at it and compare the two. They wouldn’t think like, ‘Oh, well is this something that Brian and Megan are really dealing with?’ It gave us freedom to have fun and joke around and have fun with it, but I think everybody’s done a real good job of finding the things they think are funny and then finding the things that come from either real stories that they’ve had or things they’ve imagined could happen.

AP: What’s it like reuniting with these people professionally that you worked with from when you were age 17 to 27?

Green: We have an amazing sort of chemistry with each other because we’ve done the show for as long as we have, but at the same time we have sort of a new chemistry and a new bond that forms because we have so much more in common now than we did before. So, like Jay (Jason Priestly) and I can talk about being married and having kids and I can do that with a lot of the people and so you have the sort of memories of you jump right back in with like, oh this is what it was like to be around this person or that person. You have that, but you have so much more now to connect about than we did before.

‘BEVERLY HILLS, 90210’ REBOOTING WITH ORIGINAL CAST

AP: Shannen Doherty signed on to the show later than the rest of you. Are you glad she decided to join?

Green: “To me, the show only worked if it was the original cast doing it and she was a huge part in what made the show what it was and so was Luke (Perry). You know, I always had this hope of, I knew he was busy doing ‘Riverdale’ and that he wasn’t gonna be able to sign on and do the reboot, but I always had in the back of my mind that he would be able to come and at least do one and I always hoped, if nothing else that it would work out that way with Shan (Shannen Doherty) too where she would come and do one or two. So, it was really nice that she ended up signing on and doing all six. I think she was a big part of the show then and she’s a big part of the show now.”

AP: The first episode had a few moments that were tributes to Luke. Was it hard to decide how exactly to do that?

Green: Everyone mourns in their own way. Some people talk about it more than others, some people post about it, some people don’t. That’s such an individual process mourning the loss of somebody. How do you really deal with that on a television show? You can’t. You pay homage to it and you show respect for it in a way where you don’t feel you’re being disrespectful. It’s something where we as a cast and as a people, we towed that line very carefully. It’s a really fine line for us.

SHANNEN DOHERTY TO APPEAR IN ‘RIVERDALE’ EPISODE HONORING LUKE PERRY

AP: And it must be very strange to mourn with the world watching.

Green: The public eye has changed so much. Back when we did the show, there was no social media so the world has changed, the climate has changed. It’s weird to update the mourning for the climate that exists now.

Sean Spicer: In battle for Rust Belt, Trump can rely on record of results

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6072897603001_6072897302001-vs Sean Spicer: In battle for Rust Belt, Trump can rely on record of results Julia Musto fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc fb67900a-ebf2-519a-a82a-3a6cff28a7f3 article

The battle for the Rust Belt is on and President Trump has it in the bag, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer predicted Wednesday.

The day before, at a rally in Monaca, Pa., the president touted the economy and support for American manufacturing and energy production. The small town is deep in the heart of the Rust Belt. Trump won the Democrat-heavy region decisively in 2016, but voters turned to Dems in the 2018 midterms.

On “America’s Newsroom” Spicer told co-hosts Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith that there were a few facets to the “ground game” and the “date game” — what he coined “the best in the history of politics” — that the Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign are “playing this cycle.”

Spicer said political logistics was a key piece of the campaign: “They know who they need to go to, what message they need to get to them at, and when you’re playing with a game of inches — as we are in a state like Pennsylvania — that’s the difference.”

SEAN SPICER DISMISSES BIDEN’S CLAIM TRUMP ‘FANS FLAMES’ OF WHITE SUPREMACY

He added: “In a presidential year, you’re going to have a greater turnout than you are in a midterm. That’s good for the president.”

Spicer said manufacturing would be “key” for the campaign because the president had created 5,000 more manufacturing jobs — a sign the “stagnant growth that occurred in the previous two years” was reversing.

According to “Current Employment Statistics Highlights” released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in July, manufacturing has added an average of 8,000 jobs per month so far in 2019, after adding 22,000 jobs per month in 2018.

Spicer conceded that voters do rely on their gut in a lot of their decisions. But, that he believes, “on both scores the president has a record where people know that he’s going to stand up for them, he’s going to fight for them, and he’s going to deliver for them.”

SEAN SPICER: LEFT-LEANING ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY GLAMORIZES VIOLENCE, THEN ‘WONDERS WHY’ SHOOTINGS OCCUR

On the flipside, Spicer said, Democratic presidential campaign frontrunner Joe Biden is “mostly a media creation.”

“The guy doesn’t know how to run a good campaign,” he said of the former vice president. Spicer said that what Biden primarily had — instead of fresh faces or forward-thinking platforms — was money.

“And, we’ve seen what money and politics does before, and it doesn’t really guarantee a success,” he said.

Hundreds of Google employees say they won’t be ‘complicit’ in cloud computing work with Customs and Border Protection

More than 590 Google employees are refusing to “be complicit” in any potential cloud computing work the tech giant might do for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

In a petition posted on Wednesday to Medium, the employees wrote that CBP, along with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), is caging and harming asylum seekers, separating children from their parents and overseeing an abusive system.

After noting that CBP is seeking vendors for a contract to provide cloud services, the Googlers asked that the Mountain View, Calif., company preemptively commit to not working with the agency.

“It’s time to stand together again and state clearly that we will not work on any such contract. We demand that Google publicly commit not to support CBP, ICE or ORR [Office of Refugee Resettlement] with any infrastructure, funding or engineering resources, directly or indirectly, until they stop engaging in human rights abuses,” the petition stated.

‘UBIQUITOUS’ MICROPLASTICS ARE AIRBORNE, REACHING REMOTE ARCTIC ICE

The petition comes as the company faces multiple problems from within, with employees across the political spectrum publicly calling it out for some of its business choices and practices.

The employees who signed the petition are likening Google’s potential work with ICE to IBM’s work with the Nazi s during World War II.

“In working with CBP, ICE or ORR, Google would be trading its integrity for a bit of profit and joining a shameful lineage,” the petition stated. “We have only to look to IBM’s role working with the Nazis during the Holocaust to understand the role that technology can play in automating mass atrocity.”

The tech giant led by CEO Sundar Pichai has changed course after employee dissent a number of times in the last year or so. Last summer, after a backlash from employees, Google decided not to renew its contract with the Pentagon for Project Maven, which involved drone-targeting artificial intelligence.

In July, Google stated that it would not proceed with a censored Chinese search engine, codenamed Dragonfly, after workers aired their grievances and lawmakers grilled the company’s exectives about it.

Fresno cops interrupt music video shoot, arrest 16-year-old over stolen handgun

The recording of a music video in Fresno, Calif. was cut short Tuesday evening after police arrested a teen allegedly armed with a stolen .40-caliber handgun.

Officers responded to a 911 call reporting a group drinking alcohol, flashing gang signs and shooting the video, police said.

A 16-year-old who matched the caller’s description allegedly was carrying a gun magazine loaded with 12 .40-caliber cartridges, the Fresno Bee reported, citing a police spokesman. The teen allegedly told officers he had hidden a handgun inside his pants.

The gun was a Smith & Wesson model SD 40 VE semi-automatic handgun, which police later determined was stolen five years ago in Cathedral City, Fresno’s KSEE-TV reported.

Buttigieg reportedly helped create a phone tree to alert families about ICE raids

Westlake Legal Group Pete-Buttigieg-AP Buttigieg reportedly helped create a phone tree to alert families about ICE raids Sam Dorman fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/indiana fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox news fnc/politics fnc article 9d697289-6bc7-5ad8-bc0b-ea774604363b

South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg reportedly helped create an alert system that would notify families if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided his residents’ homes or businesses.

The “phone tree,” according to The Daily Beast on Wednesday, was one of several actions Buttigieg took to protect illegal immigrants in his town. Phone trees consist of an automated calling system that helps spread messages quickly and efficiently.

Those would presumably help alert immigrants to the type of surprise raids that resulted in nearly 700 arrests in Mississippi.

His approach to immigration came under legal scrutiny when Judicial Watch, a right-leaning organization, sued the city over a “Community Resident Card” program that Buttigieg reportedly developed with the help of La Casa, a left-wing, pro-immigration group.

The program allowed residents to open bank accounts, fill prescriptions, and use public services without fear that authorities would find out their immigration status. Buttigieg specifically partnered with local businesses on the program and directed utilities and other services to accept the cards as a valid form of identification.

Buttigieg was just one of many 2020 Democratic presidential candidates who sought to help immigrants avoid interactions with federal immigration enforcement.

A long list of Democrats has criticized the Trump administration’s immigration policy as racist, xenophobic, and even as a way of terrorizing families.

On Monday, the administration prompted criticism by releasing a controversial rule that would limit green card recipients depending on whether they met a certain income threshold or relied on public assistance.

Trump has also leveled fierce criticism at “sanctuary cities” that refuse to cooperate with federal law enforcement on requests to continue detaining illegal immigrants. Buttigieg has blasted that type of cooperation as “conscription,” although Indiana has banned “sanctuary cities” in the state.
