Chicago Cubs hire David Ross as manager: reports

Westlake Legal Group David-Ross-Reuters Chicago Cubs hire David Ross as manager: reports

The Chicago Cubs have reportedly hired David Ross to become their next manager.

Ross, a former catcher who won the World Series while with the Cubs in 2016, had been a special assistant with the organization since prior to the start of the 2017 season and had also served as an analyst with ESPN.

MLB UMPIRE JOE WEST SUES EX-CATCHER PAUL LO DUCA OVER BRIBERY CLAIMS

ESPN Chicago and NBC Sports Chicago first reported that Ross, the frontrunner for the Cubs job, was going to be named manager this week. MLB Network reported Wednesday the deal was done.

Ross, 42, spent 15 seasons in the major leagues playing for the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Diego Padres and Cubs. While he only appeared in more than 100 games once during his career, he became a valuable asset as a backup catcher and clubhouse leader.

Ross holds a special place in the hearts of Cubs fans. He became the oldest person–at 39–to hit a home run in a World Series, doing so against the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.

Ross has a long history with the president of baseball operations, Theo Epstein, the Cubs’ front office and many of the players on the current roster – some of whom were his teammates three years ago.

“We’re not going to drag this out any longer than it needs to be, but we also want to be thorough,” Epstein said at the end of the season, according to MLB.com. “In the interview process, you want to make sure you don’t end up with the candidate who interviews the best. You want to end up with the candidate that’s going to be the best manager.”

He added: “That can be nuanced. We’re going to do the best we can in that process, but we’re certainly not going to hesitate.”

Ross will take over a team that underachieved in 2018. The Joe Maddon-led squad was 84-78 and barely missed the postseason. Maddon left at the end of the season and swiftly secured a job managing the Los Angeles Angels.

More than 100 ISIS prisoners in Syria are on the loose following Turkey’s invasion, US envoy says

More than 100 Islamic State militants who were being held in Kurdish prisons in Syria are now on the loose following Turkey’s invasion there, President Trump’s Special Representative for Syria Engagement revealed Wednesday.

James Jeffrey’s disturbing admission comes as Russian forces moved into Syria Wednesday to conduct joint patrols with Turkish troops along its border.

TRUMP ANNOUNCES ‘PERMANENT CEASEFIRE’ IN SYRIA BETWEEN TURKEY AND KURDS; LIFTS SANCTIONS ON ANKARA

“Let me ask you this: How many ISIS detainees have escaped? Does the U.S. have an idea where these individuals are?” Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., asked Jeffrey during a hearing on Capitol Hill.

“We would say that the number is now over 100,” he responded. “We do not know where they are.”

Jeffrey added that “almost all” of the prisons that the Kurdish forces have been guarding are secured and that U.S. officials are monitoring the situation “as best as we can.”

Before Turkey started carrying out a military operation in Syria on Oct. 9, Kurdish officials had been warning that such a prison breakout was possible.

The Kurds are estimated to be holding around 12,000 militants captured in the war against ISIS.

Jeffrey’s admission came hours before President Trump announced that conditions have been met between Turkey and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) for what he called a ” permanent ceasefire” between the two sides and that the United States is lifting sanctions on Ankara that were implemented following the invasion of northern Syria.

Speaking at the White House, Trump said that while a “permanent ceasefire” will be tough to maintain in the volatile region, he hopes that it will last and end the conflict between Turkey and the Kurds.

Jessica Biel reveals she wasn’t a huge NSYNC fan

Don’t make Justin turn around and say “Bye Bye Bye,” Jessica!

On Tuesday’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon jokingly confronted Jessica Biel about an old interview where she admitted she was not a fan of the boy band her husband, Justin Timberlake, fronted in.

Fallon asked Biel if she was an ‘NSYNC fan when the band first exploded and the actress said she was not, stating that she used to be a “lame music geek” who listened to songs from theatre productions and wasn’t into pop culture music.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE OPENS UP ABOUT MEETING WIFE JESSICA BIEL FOR THE FIRST TIME

“Well, not lame, I was just listening to old-school stuff,” she clarified. “I was listening to theater productions, I was listening to ‘Rent,’ I knew every word from ‘Rent,’ I was listening to Motown… I, like, lived under a rock.”

Fallon then gave Biel a walk down memory lane by showing her a clip of an interview she did in 1999.

“Jimmy. Jimmy… no…” Biel said, stunned. “No, please.”

Fallon revealed that his writers managed to dig up an old sit-down chat with Biel’s from “those times when ‘NSYNC was around,” and it was clear from her stunned face that she was not looking forward to the walk down memory lane.

Fallon went on to play a 1999 interview in which her younger self did not seem impressed with ‘NSYNC.

“To be honest, I don’t really listen,” she said in the interview when asked if she’s a fan of the boy band. “I mean, I know of them, of course, and I’ve heard of them and I’ve heard the music. I don’t think I own any of their CDs. I’m not a huge fan. But, I mean, cool, I guess.”

“Oh my God, you’re in so much trouble,” Fallon said while laughing at Biel’s reaction to the clip.

Biel laughed at her teenage self and her attitude in the video, saying “I am so screwed now.”

“Now you probably know some ‘NSYNC songs, right?” Fallon asked. “Not really,” the “Limetown” actress replied.

She then went on to reveal that while playing truth or dare with friends, she was faced with a dare to sing an ‘NSYNC song. It did not go well.

“I only know three words: ‘Bye, Bye, Bye,’ ” she joked.

‘Mother’s Day’ cupcake topper stuck in man’s throat for a week

Westlake Legal Group cupcake_istock 'Mother's Day' cupcake topper stuck in man's throat for a week Rachael Rettner LiveScience fox-news/health/medical-research/surgery fox-news/food-drink/food fnc/health fnc f195d786-b2de-5211-8632-72acb507f642 article

Scarfing down a cupcake left one man with more than a sugar high. He downed a Mother’s Day dessert so fast he failed to notice that he had swallowed the 2-inch cupcake topper.

The topper, which read “Happy Mother’s Day,” was lodged in his throat for a week before doctors discovered it, according to a new report of the case.

OREGON TEEN DIES OF BACTERIAL MENINGITIS: REPORT

The 60-year-old man went to the emergency room after he developed a sore throat, fever, difficulty swallowing and a feeling that something was stuck in his throat, according to the report, published Oct. 10 in the Journal of Emergency Medicine. The man told doctors his symptoms had started about a week prior to his ER visit, after he hurriedly ate a cupcake on Mother’s Day, the authors, from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, wrote in the report.

11 WEIRD THINGS PEOPLE HAVE SWALLOWED

The man had previously visited a different ER for his throat discomfort, but he was discharged after an X-ray of his neck showed no abnormalities.

But at Johns Hopkins, doctors ordered a CT scan, which showed “a 5-cm foreign body” in his esophagus, they wrote.

The man underwent an upper endoscopy, a procedure in which doctors use a thin, flexible tube with a camera to look in the esophagus.

WOMAN DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER AFTER MUSEUM THERMAL CAMERA REVEALS HOT SPOT 

Doctors saw a “pink foreign body” covered in food debris that had caused a small tear in the man’s esophagus, the report said. During the endoscopy, doctors repaired the tear and removed the foreign body, which they discovered was a plastic cupcake topper.

ER doctors commonly see patients who have swallowed foreign bodies. However, in most cases, the foreign object passes out of the body on its own — fewer than 20 percent of cases require removal by doctors, the report said.

When a foreign body gets stuck in the throat, a tear in the esophagus is a concerning complication. In serious cases, it can result in death in up to 18 percent of patients, the report said.

X-rays are often the first imaging tests ordered in cases like this one, but the test may miss objects such as plastic and glass, which was the case for this patient.

The man was hospitalized for four days due to persistent difficulty with swallowing; but by the time he was released, he was able to resume a normal diet, the report said.

John Elway says Emmanuel Sanders trade is best for Denver Broncos

John Elway, the Denver Broncos’ president of team operations, addressed his decision to trade wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders on Tuesday after he had a five-catch, 60-receiving yard game.

The Broncos traded Sanders and a fifth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers for a third- and a fourth-round pick, according to KUSA-TV. The 49ers later confirmed the trade.

“I think eventually with what happened after the Tennessee game [a 16-0 victory] and where we were and with the value we were getting for him, we decided it was the best thing for our team to trade Emmanuel,” Elway said at a news conference without clarifying.

Sanders had one catch on three targets for zero yards. He left in the second half with a knee injury. Two weeks before the Titans game, he had five catches for 104 yards in a two-point loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Elway said that it was Sanders who requested the trade.

“When we looked at it, Emmanuel had issues and we had issues,” Elway said. “That is why it was a good time for us to go different directions — for Emmanuel to go in a different direction and for us to go in a different direction. With that being said, we were able to get the value that we thought was fair. That is why we decided to make the deal.”

Sanders was in the middle of his sixth season with the Broncos before the trade. He had 404 receptions for 5,361 yards and 28 touchdowns in 78 games for Denver. He had started 77 of the 78 games.

He told CBS Denver said he was happy with his time in Denver.

“It’s hard anytime you break up or leave a place,” he said. “It’s tough. We definitely had a great run in Denver, had a lot of great times but all good things come to an end. Looking forward to getting out to San Fran and showcasing my talent.”

Pentagon will send more than 50 F-35s to Europe to deter Russia

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6075367651001_6075370763001-vs Pentagon will send more than 50 F-35s to Europe to deter Russia Warrior Maven Kris Osborn fox-news/tech/topics/us-air-force fox-news/tech/topics/armed-forces fnc/tech fnc d561c926-8045-54a2-a726-5091efc651ca article

The Pentagon is sending more than 50 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters to Europe over the next few years to deter Russia and help NATO prepare for an entirely new kind of warfare.

“By the time our planes get there, there will be 100-plus F-35s there with our European partners,” Air Force Gen. James Holmes told reporters at a recent Air Force Association Conference at Maryland’s National Harbor. “We will be falling in on our European partners who already have their F-35s.”

Although the full number of just over 50 combat aircraft won’t arrive until the early 2020s, preparations are already underway. The Air Force didn’t specify where the F-35s will be sent, citing security reasons. However, there are numerous vital strategic areas in the region, such as the Baltics and places in Eastern Europe, that might be considered.

INSIDE THE F-35 FACTORY, WHERE STEALTH BEGINS

Emphasizing that the arriving fighters will “train and operate” together with European allies, Holmes said the move was “important to our ability to compete and deter in Europe.”

Bringing F-35s to the European continent introduces a range of new attack options for U.S. and NATO forces seeking to prevent potential Russian advances. It brings 5th Generation stealth, which includes targeting sensors with never-before-seen range, new air-to-air weapons and a dronelike ability to surveil and target areas of interest.

U.S. and allied F-35s all have a common data link which enables dispersed, yet networked, attack options. In a tactical sense, it seems that a high-speed F-35, fortified by long-range sensors and targeting technologies, might be well positioned to identify and destroy mobile weapons launchers or other vital, but slightly smaller on-the-move targets.

“Once the F-35 gets there you will see it be moved around and used. It will operate with our allies, reassure them and do some deterrence as well,” Col. William Marshall, 48th Fighter Wing Commander, told reporters at AFA. The arriving F-35s will work through U.S. Air Force Europe.

F-35 SET FOR LASER BOOST

The weapons, the ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) technology and the multirole functions of the F-35 provide a wide range of attack options should that be necessary in the region. The F-35 has completed a series of weapons separation tests and is currently able to be armed with the AIM-9X, AIM-120, AIM-132, GBU-12, JDAM, JSOW, SDB-1 and the Paveway IV, Lockheed Martin data states. The F-35 is configured to carry more than 3.500 pounds of ordnance in stealth mode and over 18,000 pounds uncontested.

As part of this equation, an F-35 might also increasingly be called upon to function as a key element of U.S. nuclear deterrence strategy. In recent years, F-35s were deployed to the Pacific theater to participate in military exercises over the Korean Peninsula.

Utilizing speed, maneuverability and lower-altitude flight – compared to how a bomber such as a B-2 would operate – a nuclear-capable F-35 presents new threats to a potential adversary.

LOCKHEED MARTIN F-35 LIGHTNING II: THE FIGHTER OF THE FUTURE

A nuclear-armed F-35 will be able to respond much more quickly, with low-yield nuclear weapons, in the event that new intelligence information locating a new target emerges. Lower-yield nuclear weapons on the F-35 could enable highly destructive, yet more surgical, nuclear attacks to eliminate targets without necessarily impacting much larger swaths of territory.

Air Force officials say the service is now integrating the B61 mod 12 nuclear bomb into the F-35 as part of an upcoming 4th software drop. The Block 4 F-35, to fully emerge in the next decade, contains more than 50 technical adjustments to the aircraft designed as software and hardware builds — to be added in six-month increments between April 2019 to October 2024.

The latest version of the B61 thermonuclear gravity bomb, which has origins as far back as the 1960s, is engineered as a low-to-medium yield strategic and tactical nuclear weapon, according to nuclearweaponsarchive.org, which also states the weapon has a “two-stage” radiation implosion design. The most current Mod 12 version has demonstrated a bunker-buster earth-penetrating capability, according to the Federation of American Scientists (FAS).

AIR FORCE F-16 GETS F-35 SENSORS, WEAPONS AND RADAR

The B61 Mod 12 is engineered with a special “Tail Subassembly” to give the bomb JDAM-type GPS accuracy, giving a new level of precision targeting, according to data provided by the Federation of American Scientists.

The text of the administration’s Nuclear Posture Review, released last year, specifically cites the importance of dual-capable aircraft (DCA) in Europe and states that a nuclear-armed F-35 is fundamental to deterring Russia.

“We are committed to upgrading DCA with the nuclear-capable F-35 aircraft. We will work with NATO to best ensure – and improve where needed – the readiness, survivability, and operational effectiveness of DCA based in Europe,” the Nuclear Posture Review states.

Strategically speaking, the 31st Fighter Wing Commander at Aviano Air Base in Italy, Brig. Gen. Daniel Lasica, put it this way:

“We want the F-35s to be both predictable and unpredictable,” he said.

‘No Safe Spaces’ star Adam Carolla says censorship ‘hurting everyone,’ not a partisan issue

Comedian Adam Carolla said the goal of his new documentary about free speech, “No Safe Spaces,” is to simply “make people aware of how nuts it is out there on campuses and in the media when it comes to censorship based on feelings” rather than facts and information.

“It’s not a left or a right wing thing,” Carolla told Fox News. “We have people across the political spectrum in the film, including [liberal CNN pundit] Van Jones, who says it doesn’t help his team to have young people who can’t defend their beliefs. This is hurting everyone.”

‘NO SAFE SPACES’ TAKES ON CENSORSHIP IN CHINA, POLITICALLY CORRECT WORLD OF ACADEMIA

Carolla stars in “No Safe Spaces” alongside conservative radio personality Dennis Prager.

The movie examines the politically correct world of academia, largely driven by the political left. Prager has called the film a “wake-up call” to the American people and claimed free speech is being trampled on to satisfy a political agenda.

Safe spaces, physical locations for students who feel victimized or offended, are becoming increasingly common on college campuses. Carolla joked that the average mid-20th century American would be completely dumbfounded by the trend.

“They’d have an easier time understanding the iPhone – a television, telephone, map, calculator, record player, camera and butler all in one device the size of the pack of Lucky Strikes they’d be smoking at the dinner table – than a ‘safe space’ on campus,” Carolla cracked.

DENNIS PRAGER: ‘NO SAFE SPACES’ SHOWS THE LEFT AS ‘A PURELY DESTRUCTIVE FORCE’

In addition to liberal universities, “No Safe Spaces” also takes on censorship in China. In one scene, Carolla says that in China “you go to jail if you say anything nice about gay people.” Another scene features a cartoon character singing about the First Amendment while mocking China.

DENNIS PRAGER ON WHY NEW FILM ‘NO SAFE SPACES’ IS UNFAIRLY RATE

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the documentary has “a couple of risky scenes” considering “China-owned AMC Entertainment is set to exhibit the film in several of its theaters early in the film’s distribution pattern.”

Carolla said that filmmakers weren’t scared of attacking the Communist nation despite possible financial backlash.

“China deserves to be called out,” Carolla said. “We’d be hypocrites if we did a movie about the suppression of free speech but didn’t mention China.”

Earlier this month, Prager said he was hoping for a PG rating but the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) wouldn’t budge from its PG-13 designation.

“Despite our best efforts to meet the MPAA more than halfway, they have continued to deny us the PG rating our film deserves,” Prager told Fox News. “I will urge my friends and fans who only go to PG movies to ignore the MPAA’s fake PG-13 rating and go anyway. And please bring friends.”

The film features commentary from a variety of Hollywood actors, scholars, academics, political figures and media members, including CNN’s Van Jones, Alan Dershowitz, Jordan Peterson, Dave Rubin, Cornel West and Tim Allen.

“No Safe Spaces” is working to expand the number of theaters where it will be shown, but Carolla still doesn’t expect colleges to eliminate safe spaces because of it.

“It would be nice,” Carolla said. “But I’m not holding my breath.”

“No Safe Spaces” is being released Oct. 25

CBS correspondent suffered miscarriage while covering wildfires: ‘I blamed myself’

Westlake Legal Group mireya-villareal-CBS-News CBS correspondent suffered miscarriage while covering wildfires: ‘I blamed myself’ fox-news/health/reproductive-health/pregnancy fox-news/health/healthy-living/womens-health fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/health fnc article Alexandria Hein 0619177b-728c-5743-8057-9dc6f3bccffa

A CBS News correspondent opened up about suffering a miscarriage while on assignment in 2017 covering wildfires and the guilt she continues to wrestle with, despite doctors reassuring her that it was not her fault.

Mireya Villarreal, who penned a personal essay titled “‘Did I cause this?’ Getting past the stigma of miscarriages” for CBS News on Tuesday, said she vividly remembers standing on the ridge of a scorched hill in Yosemite National park in July 2017 when she began to feel stabbing pains.

NEWS ANCHOR DIAGNOSED WITH MOLAR PREGNANCY, UNDERGOING CHEMOTHERAPY 

She said after a 45-minute trek up the hill, rather than feel accomplished, she was cringing in pain near the C-section scar left by the birth of her son. She was nine weeks pregnant and hadn’t told any members of her crew, leading one to suggest she “must have eaten a bad burrito for lunch or some bad Mexican food on the way here.”

“I’ll always remember those words, uttered by a co-worker who had no idea I was pregnant,” she wrote. “I knew if I told any of the men on that crew what I was going through, they wouldn’t understand. I’d get that look – ‘Oh, you poor woman’ – and then word would get back to my managers. So I kept everything to myself.”

She said due to her location, there were no bathrooms nearby and she knew she was heavily bleeding.

“There were no bathrooms close by and I was worried I’d bleed through several layers of clothing and then everyone would see the pain I was going through on my bright yellow fire-retardant suit. But it didn’t, and for that, I’m thankful,” she wrote.

Villarreal said that her thoughts were racing as to whether she could save the baby or even get a doctor on short notice before her thoughts turned to wondering if she had caused it to happen and if it was her fault.

“In my line of work, the facts are all that matter,” she wrote. “But for some reason, in this situation, finding data and stats wasn’t easy. Blaming something or someone for the loss isn’t that simple. Sometimes, your body can’t handle the pregnancy. Sometimes it’s chromosomal abnormalities with the fetus. Food. Trauma. Stress. Sometimes there is no explanation — it just happens.”

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), anywhere from 10 to 25 percent of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage, with the most occurring during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.

AFTER MISCARRIAGES, WOMAN DISCOVERS CONDITION WAS GIVING UTERUS ‘AN ACID BATH’

Despite knowing this and discussions with her doctor, Villarreal said she couldn’t help but blame herself for putting her body through a grueling work schedule while pregnant. She said she felt “ashamed and guilty,” and blamed herself “then and still do.”

“My ambition and selfishness led to this miscarriage,” she wrote. “No doctor will ever convince me that’s not true. And that’s OK.”

Villarreal said it was months before she could bring herself to seek help through therapy to deal with the emotional toll the loss had taken on her, and that talking about it with other women has also helped her.

She and her husband began trying for another baby again, and she said she has suffered two more miscarriages over the last eight months.

“Each time I’ve been on the road for work. And each time I go through one of them, the same feelings I had during the first miscarriage resurface,” she wrote.

Villarreal said that during a recent interview with Alanis Morissette, who has also had several miscarriages, the two talked about how the heartbreak hasn’t deterred them from wanting more children.

“Someone recently told me, ‘Why can’t you just be happy? Some women never get to have kids. Can’t you be happy with what you have? Isn’t it enough?’” Villarreal wrote. “Here’s the thing: No, it’s not enough. And it’s okay to say that. It’s okay to want more for whatever reasons you may have.”

Villarreal, who said she would go “through 100 more miscarriages if it meant having another child like my 3-year-old” said she is still working on forgiving herself.

“Through therapy, I’ve realized that grieving the loss of this child was important, no matter what stage of the pregnancy I was in,” she wrote. “But forgiving myself is just as important and something I’m still working on.”

Villarreal’s essay comes days after another journalist, NBC News 3 Las Vegas’ Michelle Velez, opened up about her molar pregnancy and cancer diagnosis. Both women shared their stories during National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, which is honored every October.

White House won’t renew subscriptions to ‘fake’ New York Times, Washington Post following Trump’s ‘Hannity’ hint

The White House said it wouldn’t renew subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post on Tuesday after President Trump hinted at the move earlier in the week on Fox News’ “Hannity.”

Trump suggested that he would “probably terminate” both papers during a Monday interview with Sean Hannity, in which he called them “fake.”

Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told Politico on Tuesday that Trump was referring to subscriptions “which we won’t be renewing,” as opposed to terminating reporters from the papers’ access to the White House.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for additional comment.

“The media is corrupt. Not all media is. Look, I know some, some great people, including you,” Trump said to Hannity. “But I know some great journalists. Look, they gave Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong. Okay. All these people for doing it from The New York Times, which is a fake newspaper, we don’t even want it in the White House anymore. We’re going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post.  They’re Fake. But you take a look at The New York Times and you take a look at the kind of reporting they do. It was all — it turned out to be — all wrong.”

President Trump isn’t a fan of The New York Times or Washington Post.

The Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment, while the Post declined comment.

The president slammed the Times for its coverage of him during the 2016 election and knocked what he described as an “apology” for covering him “so badly” during the sitdown with Hannity.

“After the election, The New York Times apologized for their coverage because they were covering me in such a way. So when I won, they actually apologized to their subscribers because they were losing thousands and thousands of subscribers. The New York Times wrote an apology. Nothing else. You know they’re saying, ‘well, it wasn’t really an apology’,” Trump said. “It was because they covered me so badly. And then when I said, sort of interesting, I think I hope I say, you know, the good news is now be covered fairly again.”

Trump mocks both papers on a regular basis, often referring to the Times as “failing” and labeling the Post the “Amazon Washington Post” because it is owned by billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

Varney: Progressives ‘Soviet-style show trial’ part of socialist takeover of U.S. economy

Westlake Legal Group exxonpic2 Varney: Progressives 'Soviet-style show trial' part of socialist takeover of U.S. economy Matt London fox-news/topic/fox-nation-opinion fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc ce20b846-4aef-5a88-bfea-3fe1aa1d0aa7 article

The trial involving New York’s attorney general’s lawsuit against Exxon, one of the world’s largest oil and gas corporations, kicked off on Tuesday, and Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney said that it amounts to little more than a thinly-veiled “Soviet-style show trial” meant to advance a socialist takeover of the U.S. economy.

VARNEY: TRUMP SPEECH IN NATURAL GAS-RICH STATE MAY TURN THE TABLES ON DEMOCRATS

“This is how progressives foist their views on the rest of us when they can’t win votes,” said Varney on his Fox Nation show “My Take.”

The lawsuit claims Exxon falsely told investors it had properly evaluated the impact of future climate regulations on its business using a “proxy cost” of up to $80 per ton of carbon emissions, but internally used figures as low as $40 per ton or none at all.

“You got that?” questioned Varney. “Of course you don’t. You’re not meant to understand the minutiae of legalisms. No, you’re just supposed to believe that big oil is bad. That will be the takeaway from this charade. Big oil lies, so take them to the cleaners, take their money, ruin them.”

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board covered the opening on the trial, writing “This saga began more than three years ago when 20 state AGs and Al Gore held a press conference to launch an investigation into unproven newspaper claims that Exxon had hidden from the public evidence of climate harm it knew to be true.”

Varney called the effort a, “legal assault on fossil fuels,” adding that the “climate warriors are not doing that well with voters, so they’ve gone to court.”

VARNEY WARNS 2020 DEMOCRATS AFTER REPORTS SHOW MIDDLE-CLASS INCOMES SPIKING UNDER TRUMP

“This is what happens when progressives use the courts for their own political purposes,” he continued. “Injustice and lousy economics. That’s what you get. Where’s the progress in ruining the energy companies which fuel America’s prosperity? What do you think $10 [per gallon] gas would do to working families because that’s what we’re going to get if progressives get their way.”

Exxon Mobil told FOX Business that it met its responsibility to shareholders and argued that the case is politically motivated.

“Here’s the bottom line. The left has latched on to climate change,” Varney concluded. “The issue is a Trojan horse. They scream about the end of the world and use that scare for the socialists to take over the economy. The Exxon show trial is just a part of the whole sorry mess.”
