Iran plans ‘calculated’ response after nuclear scientist killed as newspaper calls for revenge on Israeli city

Iran is plotting a “calculated and decisive” response to the assassination of its top nuclear scientist, according to an adviser to the country’s supreme leader, as calls for a retaliatory attack escalate.

An opinion piece published in a hard-line newspaper suggested that Iran attack the port city of Haifa, causing “heavy human casualities,” if Israel carried out the killing.

“Undoubtedly, Iran will give a calculated and decisive answer to the criminals who took Martyr Mohsen Fakhrizadeh from the Iranian nation,” Kamal Kharrazi, the adviser who also leads Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, said in a statement, according to Reuters.

Fakhrizadeh, who founded the Islamic Republic’s military nuclear program in the early 2000s, was killed in a military-style ambush Friday in the outskirts of Tehran when a truck bomb exploded and gunmen opened fire.

ABC’s Stephanopoulos wants Trump revenge

This week’s Liberal Media Scream finds that the elites are looking for a little Trump revenge.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday advanced the liberal quest to further politicize political differences by holding Trump administration officials “accountable” for “wrongdoing.”

On his show, he pressed Joe Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain about “criminality” during President Trump’s years. Stephanopoulos noted that Biden “has expressed a preference that he doesn’t want his presidency consumed by Trump investigations” but pointed out “that has raised some concerns” with Democrats.

He quoted a congressman’s claim that not holding Trump officials accountable “emboldens criminality by our national leaders” and enables “lawlessness and authoritarianism.” Stephanopoulos then asked: “How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability?”

From ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos:

“There’s going to be some tension between getting unity, getting things done, working with the Republicans, and investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the

Temporary restraining order granted against Diplo in revenge porn case

A Los Angeles judge granted a restraining order against Diplo, the DJ and producer, in a case involving a woman who alleged that the musician posted a sexually explicit photo of her as an act of revenge porn, according to court documents obtained Wednesday.

The woman’s lawyer, Lisa Bloom, had requested the temporary order on Nov. 13 demanding that Diplo, whose real name is Thomas Wesley, immediately stop posting photos of her client, identify the people he sent them to and remove any images that he published.

An order issued Monday requires Wesley to halt posting the explicit images unless he’s given written permission and to remove any pictures previously posted.

“We are pleased to announce that by an order dated November 16, 2020, the Court ordered our requests ‘all granted’ and the restraining order issued,” Bloom said.

A lawyer for Wesley, Bryan Freedman, did not respond to a request

Diplo Hit With Restraining Order in Alleged Revenge Porn Case

A judge granted a restraining order against Diplo on Monday, November 16, amid his alleged revenge porn case.

Auguste’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, issued a statement on Wednesday, November 18, regarding the protection order after her client made “serious misconduct allegations” against the DJ last month.

“We have reviewed her allegations, spoken to several other women, and find her and the other women to be credible,” the statement read.

Auguste, 24, tweeted about her relationship with Diplo in October, claiming that he “filmed her having sex without her permission and that he preys on young women.”

Kansas Democrat Who Admitted to Revenge Porn Wins State House Seat

Aaron Coleman’s election to the Kansas House of Representatives would have been remarkable for a young candidate trying to unseat an incumbent. But it has instead left state Democratic leaders saying that they will take “every necessary step” to ensure that Mr. Coleman is not seated in the State Legislature.

Mr. Coleman’s campaign over the summer was overshadowed by his admissions that he had sent revenge porn and bullied girls online in middle school.

In August, Mr. Coleman, 20, won a Democratic primary against a seven-term incumbent, Stan Frownfelter, by 14 votes. Mr. Coleman initially planned to withdraw as his party’s nominee but then ran in the general election. Mr. Frownfelter ran as a write-in candidate in the general election and lost, The Kansas City Star reported.

“I want to let my policy viewpoints to be what people know me for,” Mr. Coleman said in an email on Saturday.

Some media liberals urge revenge, payback if Trump loses

Media commentators, who are unloading everything they have on President Trump, are no longer content with the idea of him merely losing.

Now, in their esteemed estimation, there has to be a “reckoning.”

As part of a package of editorial condemnation, the New York Times declared that “Donald Trump’s reelection campaign poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II.”

Then the Washington Post’s Outlook opinion section devoted its cover to two alternatives: whether Trump and his minions should be prosecuted or merely investigated as part of a national truth commission. If that wasn’t enough, two MSNBC ex-prosecutors wrote a Post op-ed headlined “A Rap Sheet for a Former President.”

For liberal media people who have agonized over the last four years, you might think the idea of evicting Trump from the White House, and welcoming a Democratic administration, would be enough.
