Luke Perry’s son Jack looks like his twin at New York Comic Con

Luke Perry might be gone but his kids are continuing his legacy.

The actor’s son, Jack, who is a pro wrestler and goes by the name Jungle Boy, was photographed at New York Comic Con on Friday and his resemblance to Luke is uncanny.

The 22-year-old was in town to promote All Elite Wrestling, which just made its debut on TNT on Thursday night.

LUKE PERRY’S SON MAKES WRESTLING RETURN FOR FIRST TIME SINCE ACTOR’S DEATH

Jack celebrated the accomplishment on social media. “Awesome tv debut last night for @aewonthnt! History in the making,” he wrote.

Luke died in March at only 52 years old after suffering a massive stroke.

In July, Jack opened up about his father’s death to Entertainment Tonight, saying “the thing that I’m most proud of about my dad, always, is that he was a really good guy.”

“And you know, not everyone got the chance to know him. But I think the outreach and support, I think it kind of shows that. I’m happy to see it. He was loved by everybody and it’s nice to see that from everybody and it’s a nice thing.”

He also first paid tribute to Luke a few days after his death in an emotional post on Instagram. “He was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, he was always Dad,” he wrote.

“He loved [and] supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be. I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for. I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth. “I’ll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you proud. I love you dad.”

Pence’s Chief of Staff Marc Short says impeachment subpoena based on ‘fake news’

Westlake Legal Group cummings-short-schiff-AP-FOX Pence's Chief of Staff Marc Short says impeachment subpoena based on 'fake news' Julia Musto fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/mike-pence fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc e3c85dbe-4955-5f4f-a6f0-e19420441692 article

A letter sent from House Democrats to Vice President Mike Pence requesting documents as part of the impeachment inquiry was based on “fake news,” the vice president’s Chief of Staff Marc Short said Saturday.

Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., gave Pence until October 15 to produce pertinent documents.

The House Oversight Committee also subpoenaed the White House late Friday evening.

The Democratic chairmen of three House committees wrote that President Trump “has chosen the path of defiance, obstruction, and cover-up” in response to the ongoing impeachment inquiry related to his conduct on a phone call with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy of Ukraine.

WHISTLEBLOWER DID NOT DISCLOSE CONTACT WITH SCHIFF’S COMMITTEE TO INSPECTOR GENERAL, SOURCES SAY

The chairmen wrote that “…public reports have raised questions about any role [Pence] may have played in conveying or reinforcing the President’s stark message to the Ukrainian President.”

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with host Pete Hegseth, Short said House Democrats only want to discuss their “partisan impeachment” narrative and the American people are “fed up with it.”

“And, as opposed to working on things that we could actually be working on together — like lowering drug prices or continuing to create new jobs with new trade deals — Democrats want to focus on these continued investigations,” Short lamented.

“I think this administration’s continued to deliver for the American people in rebuilding the military, in securing the border and confirming a record number of judges. And, just yesterday, more evidence of this booming economy with 3.5 percent unemployment rate,” he touted. “The economy is booming. Democrats don’t want to talk about that, and so they’ve been focused on impeachment.”

The president has resisted Democratic attempts to produce documents and administration witnesses for the inquiry, although acknowledging that Democrats “have the votes” to proceed.

The White House was expected to send a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as early as Monday arguing that Congress could not mount its impeachment inquiry without having a vote to authorize it. The speaker has said such a vote is unnecessary.

In the chairmen’s Friday letter, they warned the White House that “Speaker Pelosi has confirmed that an impeachment inquiry is underway, and it is not for the White House to say otherwise.”

Turning to the letter, Short told Hegseth that the chairmen’s source in the letter — a report in “The Washington Post” – was distorted.

“I don’t know about Volker’s exchanges. I saw those same news reports. But you know what, President Zelenskiy himself said he felt no pressure. From the President or the Vice President. That should have ended a lot of these inquiries at that point,” said Short.

“The reality is that we’re going to continue to focus on what we think is most important to the American people,” he concluded.

“There [are] 21 Democrats who are residing in districts where Donald Trump won in 2016. And those members have to be put on notice and say, ‘are you actually going to help your constituents to do things that are beneficial for the American people or are you siding with Nancy Pelosi and these endless investigations?” he asked.

Newt Gingrich: Pelosi’s rigged game far cry from truth-seeking impeachment inquiries into Nixon, Clinton

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6092465644001_6092461600001-vs Newt Gingrich: Pelosi's rigged game far cry from truth-seeking impeachment inquiries into Nixon, Clinton Newt Gingrich fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc d1a16ac5-8a7d-5eab-b7d3-707d9bd9e4a2 article

If you want proof that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are creating a rigged game that sets up a coup to destroy the president, simply look at the last two legitimate impeachment efforts — in 1973 and 1998.

Both Democratic Judiciary Committee Chairman Peter Rodino in 1973 and Republican Judicial Committee Chairman Henry Hyde in 1998 set a standard for fairness and operated with a judicial temperament of seeking the truth rather than maximizing partisan advantage.

In 1973, Rodino set the gold standard for fairness. The rights of the minority were protected. The American people’s right to know what was going on was protected.

Chairman Rodino himself set a standard for fairness and seriousness as a congressman exercising constitutional oversight.  In fact, the Rodino Rules for bipartisanship were widely considered so fair and legitimate that when we were faced with a special counsel report charging that President Clinton had committed 11 potentially impeachable offenses, our initial response was bipartisan.

Democratic leader Dick Gephardt and I held a joint press conference announcing that we had agreed the entire report should be published so the American people could make up their own minds.

Compare their behavior with the wild lies House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., has been telling for two years – first about the Russian collusion hoax and now about the Ukrainian absurdity.

If you read the opening statements of Rodino and Hyde, and then look at the profoundly dishonest, totally made up and entirely false opening statement by Schiff, you can see the difference between people who are trying to uphold the rule of law and those who seek to destroy a president at any cost.

The result of these very different approaches can be seen in the voting pattern in the House.

In the current atmosphere – with the dishonest, one-sided rigged game, and indeed, an obvious liar as chair of the investigation – can you imagine two-thirds of House Republicans voting with Pelosi and Schiff for a witch hunt conducted under totally partisan rules?

In November 1973, the House voted to fund the investigation into President Nixon on a bipartisan 367-51 vote. By February 1974, everyone was so convinced that Rodino was being fair and non-partisan that the resolution to conduct a formal investigation passed 410-4.

When we were faced with the Starr Report we were in a more polarized environment. The Clinton team had concluded that they had to run a very partisan defense. Despite the intense efforts of James Carville and others to polarize the Democrats, we continued to push with Henry Hyde in an open way.

The result of our openness was that a substantial number of Democrats continued to vote with us on the procedures despite intense pressure from the White House and outside groups.

In September 1998, the House released the Starr Report on a 363-63 vote. Democrats favored an investigation by a better than 2-to-1 margin.

In the current atmosphere – with the dishonest, one-sided rigged game, and indeed, an obvious liar as chair of the investigation – can you imagine two-thirds of House Republicans voting with Pelosi and Schiff for a witch hunt conducted under totally partisan rules?

Everyone interested in better understanding how fair people used judicial standards and basic fairness in 1973 and 1998 should read former GOP Congressman James Rogan’s personal account of the process in an important book: Catching Our Flag: Behind the Scenes of a Presidential Impeachment.”

It will make crystal clear that the current partisan actions are a complete sham.

Brandon Judd: DNA collection from illegal immigrants will help solve unsolved crimes

Westlake Legal Group Judd-Cropped Brandon Judd: DNA collection from illegal immigrants will help solve unsolved crimes Julia Musto fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc ffbc5fba-f1a3-529c-86aa-00265761b5f8 article

The Department of Homeland Security’s plan for border agents to collect DNA samples from illegal immigrants in detention centers could help to solve unsolved crimes, Border Patrol Union President Brandon Judd claimed Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with anchor Griff Jenkins, Judd explained: “When we collect the DNA, we know that there’s a lot of people that come and go into the United States. And, there are thousands of crimes that are committed that are unsolved on a yearly basis.”

“DNA will help us solve those crimes because there’s always residue from DNA that [is] left at every single crime scene,” Judd said.

The DHS’s program proposal is not new. The “Finger Print Act” originated as a response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks to help better identify potential terrorists and criminals. The Obama administration then issued a waiver that halted the program.

There is no timeline for when the new testing will be rolled out. The regulation that calls for DNA collection will be issued by the Justice Department, said the official, who noted that the DOJ rule will provide the framework and that DHS will phase in implementation.

DNA samples can be collected from individuals in custody, including non-Americans, per the DNA Fingerprint Act of 2005. However, it’s not mandatory to collect someone’s DNA.

“The laws are supposed to benefit the United States and those people who are within the borders,” Judd told Jenkins. “Trump is all about the rule of law; he stood for the rule of law, and he continues to stand for the rule of law in support of the American citizens.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has already denounced the reinstatement of the Bush-era act. Staff Attorney Vera Eidelman wrote that “forced DNA collection raises serious privacy and civil liberties concerns and lacks justification, especially when DHS is already using less intrusive identification methods like fingerprinting.”

“This kind of mass collection alters the purpose of DNA collection from one of criminal investigation to population surveillance, which is contrary to our basic notions of freedom and autonomy,” Eidelman stated.

Judd said that in his more than two decades in law enforcement, he has “never seen a situation in which DNA has caused unwarranted profiling.”

“In fact, that’s where the ACLU is going to fail in this court challenge,” he exclaimed. “But, where they’re going to fail is they’re not going to be able to show a judge cause or reasonable likelihood that DNA will be…used to profile persons. It’s not reality.”

He concluded: “When we’ve got people that are talking about getting rid of the MPP, when we’ve got people that are talking about getting rid of the rule of law, we’re going to go down as a country. We just will not have those protections, and illegal immigration will spike.”

As of August, the FBI’s national DNA index contained more than 17 million profiles of offenders and arrestees. Law enforcement agencies can submit samples from non-citizens who are detained, as well as suspects arrested or convicted of crimes.

Fox News’ Catherine Herridge and Cyd Upson contributed to this report, as well as The Associated Press.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcome third child: reports

Westlake Legal Group blake-lively-ryan-reynolds-getty Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcome third child: reports The Sun fnc/entertainment fnc article 61321081-b4eb-5317-90ae-a6e4659ededf

Blake Lively has given birth to her third baby with Ryan Reynolds.

The pair, who married in 2012, has “secretly welcomed” their child two months ago, according to US reports.

A source told US Weekly the baby is now “two months old” but no other details have been revealed.

RYAN REYNOLDS TROLLS BLAKE LIVELY OVER RISQUÉ INSTAGRAM PIC

The Sun Online has contacted Blake’s reps for comment.

Meanwhile, Ryan, 42, has been active on Instagram, and shared videos about his next movie Free Guy which also stars Brit sensation Jodie Comer.

His last interaction with wife Blake, 31, online was when he trolled her and shared unflattering pics on her 32nd birthday – but she still looked stunning.

Ryan and Blake, who already have kids James and Inez, don’t take themselves too seriously and never miss an opportunity to troll each other.

RYAN REYNOLDS ‘EXCITED’ ABOUT THIRD BABY, TALKS NEW ‘DETECTIVE PIKACHU’ MOVIE

Ryan used the special occasion to share some less than flattering pictures of his glamorous wife, who is pregnant with their third child.

But former Gossip Girl actress Blake still looked incredible – even when caught off guard – thanks to her supermodel-esque looks.

Ryan had fans in hysterics with the never-before-seen candid photos of his wife as they celebrated her 32nd birthday.

In nearly all of the photos, her eyes are closed while she smiles at the camera.

Deadpool actor Ryan also appeared in most of the intimate snaps and captioned them: “Happy Birthday, @blakelively” Whilst Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld said in the comments: “There are no bad pictures of @blakelively”.

“Haha! Happy birthday shes still always so beautiful,” commented Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown.

It is not the first time Ryan has shared unflattering snaps of Blake on social media.

After photos emerged of Blake looking far from her glamorous self while shooting a film in Dublin, her husband took to Instagram to post a cheeky snap.

BLAKE LIVELY AND RYAN REYNOLDS DONATE $2M TO HELP MIGRANT CHILDREN AT BORDER

Ryan shared one of the unrecognisable photos of his wife, captioning it: “#nofilter”.

The normally glamorous star was snapped while filming scenes for spy thriller The Rhythm Section.

She revealed in May that she is pregnant with her third child.

Blake and Ryan are parents to two daughters, James and Inez.

The couple tied the knot at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant – where The Notebook was filmed – in front of friends and family.

Ryan was previously married to Scarlett Johansson for two years, but he filed for divorce in December 2010.

When he was 17, he had a brief romance with Sabrina the Teenage Witch co-star Melissa Joan Hart.

The star also got engaged to Alanis Morissette in 2004.

After his marriage to Johansson fell apart, he briefly dated Charlize Theron in 2011.

Blake had a fling with Leonardo DiCaprio in 2011.

Four homeless men are dead, another seriously injured, after police say they were all beaten in their sleep by a man wielding a large metal object in New York City early Saturday morning.

Police received a 911 call at around 1:50 a.m. over reports of a man with “severe trauma to the head” discovered on Bowery Street, The New York Times reported citing an NYPD spokesperson.

A 24-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with the attack, Lt. Thomas Antonetti told the Times. He said police also found a 3-foot-long metal object that resembled a construction stud.

The suspect is also believed to be homeless, the New York Post reported.

Kim Komando shares 9 new features in iOS 13 you’ll use time and time again

Cue the applause — Apple released a new operating system. You’d think with all the fanfare we just found a way to travel from New York to London in 30 minutes. But Apple has perfected marketing, and this includes an annual upgrade that changes the look and use of our devices.

It wasn’t all roses initially in Cupertino. Bugs and security issues plagued the release of iOS 13. Tap or click here to learn more about the fixes you need now for Apple’s new operating system.

True to form, iOS 13 includes a ton of changes — over 200 to be exact. Here are 9 you definitely need to check out. By the way, if you like this content, try my free Apple email newsletter and sign up now at Komando.com/Subscribe.

1. Save your eyes

One of the most frequently requested features for iOS has been the addition of “Dark Mode.” This mode is easier on the eyes for those who do most of our browsing at night. It’s clean, great to look at and will give your vision less strain than usual when you use it.

When you install iOS 13, you are asked if you’d like to use Dark Mode. Otherwise, to activate Dark Mode, open the Settings app, select Display and brightness and tap on Dark.

If you’d like your device to switch automatically between dark and light modes, turn on Automatic. There are other settings in this menu you should check out, including options such as Light until Sunset, if set to Automatic, and True Tone.

2. A new way to look at photos

The Photos app received a much-needed major overhaul. Now, instead of endlessly scrolling through your entire photo archive, iOS 13 integrates machine learning into the app to group your photos into collections. You see your best moments from every day, month, and year.

It’s also fun to see live photos and videos auto-play as you scroll. A feature like Facebook’s Memories has come to Photos. In your Year’s view, photos taken around a specific date are sorted and shown throughout the years.

Photos automatically ignores duplicate photos and screenshots, so all those meme pictures you save from Facebook won’t clutter up your albums. If you do need to grab any of those, though, they’re still available in the full camera roll.

Finally, if you used a separate photo editor before to fine-tune your shots, you won’t need to do that anymore. iOS 13 has a slew of new built-in photo and video editing tools and filters.

3. Create a “Memoji”

Why use generic emojis when you can create your own “Memoji” that resembles you? This way, when you ask someone, “What are we doing tonight?” while smiling, your Memoji does the same thing — complete with head movements and facial expressions. It uses your device’s front-facing camera to create your animated Memoji.

You can choose your skin color, facial features, and hairstyle. You can now customize it with teeth, headwear, makeup, and yes, facial piercings too. To get started on your Memoji, on the front row in the iMessage’s app, tap the Monkey icon.

You can set your Memoji as your photo in Contacts for your iMessage profile. Do this if you’d like to take an extra step to help protect your identity.

4. Reminders that actually work

The Reminders app never really did much when compared to stand-alone apps available in the App store. If you have trouble remembering things, it’s worth a look. You can make lists, tasks, sub-tasks, set schedules, set reminders based on time and location, and flag important to-dos. You can also see it all at-a-glance on your device or Apple Watch.

RELATED: Should you upgrade to the Apple Watch 5?

The big deal is that you can get alerts about a reminder when you are messaging someone as well as tag contacts in specific reminders that involve them. You can also attach images and video clips to your reminders. It’s also super handy that Siri can set them by voice.

Be sure that you set up Reminders to use your iCloud account to keep your reminders updated across all your devices. Open Settings, tap [Your Name], iCloud, and turn on Reminders. Inside the Reminders app, you’ll see all of your reminders on all of your Apple devices that are signed in to the same Apple ID.

5. Robocall help is here

This feature just might be the best one of all, but it’s not enabled by default. iOS 13 allows your phone to automatically “Silence unknown callers” and send them directly to voicemail. If the number is found in your Mail, Messages or Contacts app, the call will go through.

To activate the feature, open Settings and scroll down to Phone. Scroll down and turn on Silence Unknown Callers.

Do not enable this feature if you are worried about missing an emergency call. It does not work like Do Not Disturb. A call will not come through after multiple attempts. Finally, be sure to glance at your missed calls from time-to-time. I missed a few calls from my credit card company wanting to verify charges.

6. A faster way to type

Apple has finally caught up with Android with gesture typing. Called QuickPath, the swipe-based keyboard works excellently and is enabled by default.  While typing, move your finger from one letter to the next without lifting it. The software handles the rest.

Let’s say you wanted to type the word, pumpkin. Place your finger on the “p” key and draw a line to the “u” and then a line to the “m” and so on. It’s really easy and fast once you get used to it.

If this new typing technique doesn’t float your boat, open Settings, select General, select Keyboard, and scroll down until you see Slide to Type and turn it off.

7. Vanishing tabs

iOS 13 will clean up after you. Most iPhone owners tend to build up a large amount of Safari tabs that usually just get left open. This makes it hard to find what you’re looking for with all the clutter.

You can make your device close all these tabs automatically. Open Settings and scroll down to Safari. Find the section that says Tabs and tap Close tabs and select the amount of time you’d like them to last: manually or after one day, one week, or one month.

Speaking of Safari, in the address bar you’ll find a new icon shown as two As. Tap this to open a Website View Menu where you can set individual settings for each website. You can set per-site controls for access to your camera, location, and microphone, as well as enable Reader View.

8. New privacy controls

The idea behind iOS 13’s Sign in with Apple is that you set up accounts with various apps and sites using your Apple ID. This way, you don’t divulge any personal data. Apps and websites only get a unique number that identifies you. You can give out your email address or use a hidden address given to you by Apple that will automatically forward email to your real email address.

One huge benefit to this is you no longer have to remember different passwords for all your various accounts. Your Apple account is protected by your biometrics such as Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode. When you log into an app or site that offers this, you’ll see a button that says Continue or Sign In with Apple.

To  enable Sign in with Apple, two-factor authentication must be activated. Open Settings, tap [Your Name], and tap Password and Security. Here, you’ll see an option to Turn on Two-Factor Authentication. Follow the steps.

9. Try a freebie

Lawrence Jones: A lot of players ‘taking back control of their destiny’ with law defying NCAA rules

Westlake Legal Group Lawrence-Jones-Fox Lawrence Jones: A lot of players 'taking back control of their destiny' with law defying NCAA rules Sam Dorman fox-news/us/education/college fox-news/sports/ncaa fox-news/sports fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 632aafd6-4a27-553b-baaf-e7bcaf2daa14

Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Lawrence B. Jones defended a California law which protected college athletes who sought to make money off of images, names, or likenesses.

“A lot of these players are taking back control of their destiny — there’s going to be a lot of responsibility when it comes to that. They need to be in financial literacy classes, they need to be told how to manage their money,” Jones said on Thursday’s “Hemmer Time.”

Jones pointed out that football players brought in a lot of revenue for other parts of the university. “And so when you look at it just from a fairness standpoint when you’re using the players … look I’m not saying that every player is going to be making a lot of dough.”

Fox News host Bill Hemmer balked at Jones’ suggestion that athletes didn’t eat on the weekend because they lacked sufficient funds.

“You’re making it appear that the student-athlete is the victim. How so? You’re an 18-year-old kid. You’re given a free ride, scholarship, room, board, books, to a major American university. Why is that such a bad thing?” he asked before labeling the package “the golden ticket.”

CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR SIGNS BILL ALLOWING COLLEGE ATHLETES TO CAPITALIZE ON IMAGE, NAME AND LIKENESS

Fox News reporter Jared Max acknowledged that student-athletes received a lot from universities but suggested the NCAA law helped athletes craft their careers.

“I think it’s silly that a scholarship shouldn’t be enough but I do believe and in today’s world I understand a need for opening us up for marquee players to get paid,” he said.

Jones added that the athletes were “adults” and asked why they should be restricted from going to a professional league. “If they’re good enough … they should be able to go to the league but the reason they’re not able to do that is because the NCAA knows it would hurt their pocketbooks,” he said.

Both Jones and Max told Hemmer that college athletes were barred from entering a professional league straight out of high school.

“The way these young people are being developed today — we know right in high school if they’re going to be killers,” Jones added. “We know it — genetically, the way that they play.”

German intelligence reports on Iran’s illicit nuclear activities met with silence from European powers

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-edf2f049b8384a5da0db84744b12743b German intelligence reports on Iran's illicit nuclear activities met with silence from European powers fox-news/world/world-regions/germany fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world/conflicts/iran fox news fnc/world fnc da17fd0f-7093-55c1-9cc3-faab67fff9f0 Benjamin Weinthal article

Serious questions have emerged about the International Atomic Energy Agency’s and the European powers’ silence regarding a series of German intelligence reports documenting the Iranian regime’s illegal attempts to obtain nuclear weapons technology as late as 2018.

Emily B. Landau, director of the Arms Control and Regional Security Project at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, told Fox News that the material in the German documents necessitate “confronting Iran with the intelligence and asking hard questions.”

“When will the international powers finally relate to these German intelligence reports that have been coming out periodically, detailing Iran’s continued procurement efforts?” Landau said, adding that “these efforts are not covered in IAEA reports that [nuclear] deal supporters love to quote to prove Iran’s ‘compliance.’’’

IRAN SEEKING TO EXPAND MILITARY PROGRAM TO WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

The United States withdrew from the 2015 Iran deal because, according to the Trump administration, it would not stop Tehran from building nuclear weapons.

Fox News reviewed a newly published report from the intelligence agency of the German state of Hesse in which officials wrote that “against this background [of proliferation], weapons of mass destruction continued to be a powerful political instrument during the reporting period, which could shake the stability of the entire state structure in both regional and international crisis situations.”

The report noted that “in particular, states such as Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, and Syria attempted to acquire and redistribute such weapons in the context of proliferation, for example by concealing transport routes via third countries.”

Visiting academics from these countries are connected to “proliferation conduct” that is coordinated by intelligence services from those countries, said the report.
 
“An example of this is the field of electrical engineering combined with the use of centrifuges in the process of uranium enrichment,” the document said. “Here, again and again, there are suspicions that foreign intelligence services put pressure on their own visiting scientists to obtain the desired technical know-how.”

IRAN’S ROUHANI LEFT TRUMP HANGING IN PHONE CALL, REPORT SAYS

Iran was also named as connected to illicit espionage within Germany’s higher education system.

“Another example of intelligence control is the exchange of research among university institutes in the chemical-biological process sector,” the report reads.

The findings in the Hesse report mirror other German intelligence data that Fox News first reported on in May that state Iran is a “country of risk” that is “making efforts to supplement its arsenal of conventional weapons with weapons of mass destruction.”

When asked whether the IAEA had reviewed the German intelligence documents, Fredrik Dahl, an IAEA spokesman, responded: “We have no comment.”

Authorities in Hesse were also mum on the subject.

When asked whether the state’s intelligence agency had forwarded its findings to the IAEA, the UN, and the United Nations Security Council, Carsten Rauch, a spokesman for the Hesse domestic intelligence agency, told Fox News: “Beyond the information contained in our annual report, the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution of Hesse cannot provide you with information in the sense of your request.”

IRAN’S TOP GENERAL SAYS WIPING ISRAEL OFF MAP IS AN ‘ACHIEVABLE GOAL’

Meanwhile, Angela Pley, a spokeswoman for Germany’s federal intelligence agency told Fox News: “The constitutional protection authorities have no knowledge about actual violations by Iran of the JCPOA [the Iran nuclear deal] in Germany. In contrast, the federal and state constitutional protection authorities report in their annual reports on Iran’s proliferation-relevant procurement activities for its missile program, which is not covered by the JCPOA. Against this background, no information was provided to the IAEA, the UN Security Council or the UN.”

The JCPOA is the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name of the accord that is supposed to curb Iran’s nuclear ambitions in exchange for sanctions relief.

Local intelligence reports across Germany appear to contradict Pley’s contention that Iran’s alleged illicit activity is related only to its missile programs. When asked how the federal intelligence agency knew there were no violations of the JCPOA if the IAEA, UN and UN Security Council had not reviewed the intelligence data, Pley did not comment.

Uwe Becker, Hesse state’s commissioner for Jewish life and the fight against antisemitism, told Fox News that German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s administration and the European Union should pull the plug on the Iran nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

“The current escalation with Israel should be reason enough for Germany to advocate the … Iran nuclear agreement, which has been undermined by Iran…, [as] dead, and for the necessary sanctions against Tehran to become effective again in their entirety,” Becker said. “It is not a question of a policy aimed against the Iranian people, who are deprived of important rights to freedom by their own government, but of a clear position directed at the political leadership in Tehran.”

US ENVOY TO GERMANY BLASTS IRAN FOREIGN MINISTER’S ‘HYPOCRISY’ AMID CONTROVERSIAL OVER VISITING SICK DIPLOMAT

Landau, the arms control expert, said, “First, it is important that this intel be widely published and that it become part of the public debate over Iran, as it indicates that Iran has not complied with its commitment not to work on military nuclear capability, (this in contrast to deal supporters, who claim on basis of IAEA reports since the nuclear deal that Iran has complied fully, and only the US broke its commitment….)

“From my perspective, most important thing at this point is to have it widely known that Iran did not stop everything in 2015 [when the nuclear deal was reached], because the debate in Europe ignores this,” adding, “The point is that it [Iran] has continued these efforts well after signed the JCPOA [was reached].”

Landau noted that the Iran deal “set up a special channel regarding procurement for checking issues of this sort,” that is of the sort detailed in the German intelligence documents. “The problem is that the deliberations there get close to zero attention.”

A follow-up Fox News query to Fredrik Dahl, the IAEA spokesman, as to whether the agency will demand to review the German intelligence data went unanswered.

When asked about the Iran nuclear deal, a spokesman for Merkel’s government referenced a September 23 joint statement from Germany, Britain, and France, that stated: “We recall our continued commitment to the JCPOA, agreed with Iran on July 14th, 2015, and unanimously endorsed by the UN Security Council. We urge Iran once again to reverse its decisions to reduce compliance with the deal and to adhere fully to its commitments under it. We call upon Iran to cooperate fully with the IAEA in the framework of the JCPOA and its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement.”

Last month, the Merkel government promoted and participated in a pro-Iranian regime business forum in Berlin, sparking intense criticism from US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell.

“Iran perpetuates gross human rights abuses against its own citizens, has planned and carried out terror attacks and assassinations on European soil and is facilitating Assad’s war crimes in Syria. Now is not the time to promote business deals that will only send euros to the regime’s coffers at the expense of the Iranian people,” said Grenell, a former Fox News contributor.

The German foreign ministry sent Miguel Berger, the head of its Department of Economic and Sustainable Development, to deliver the greeting at the eighth “Banking and Business Forum Iran Europe” conference in Berlin.

Georgia teacher on leave after saying Confederate flag means you ‘intend to marry your sister’

A Georgia teacher was reportedly placed on administrative leave this week after posting in a high school classroom a description of the Confederate flag as an announcement that you “intend to marry your sister.”

The Hephzibah High School teacher’s description was displayed on the board with a photo of a Confederate flag, Augusta’s WRDW-TV reported.

The description said the Confederate flag is “a sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash ‘Save the Date’ card.”

VIRGINIA HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS POSE WITH CONFEDERATE FLAGS DURING ‘SPIRIT WEEK’

The district launched an investigation into the teacher after a parent posted a photo of the description to social media.

“She found it offensive, so she sent it to me and asked me what I thought,” Melissa Fuller said of her daughter who was in the teacher’s classroom, according to WRDW. She then posted it on Facebook.

“A lot of is that it’s not morally correct. It’s unethical,” Fuller told WRDW. “It’s just something you don’t want to discuss today in today’s world and especially inside of a classroom.”

The district issued a statement on the controversy that said in part: “The Richmond County School System is committed to creating a diverse, equitable learning environment for students. The language used in the example was unacceptable and has no place in our classrooms.”
