The New Yorker magazine has suspended one of its long-time staff writers, legal expert Jeffrey Toobin, while it investigates a report that he was allegedly masturbating during a Zoom work call earlier this month.
“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Toobin said in a statement on Monday about the situation, first reported by Vice.
He added: “I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers. I thought I had muted the Zoom video, I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me.”
He has so far declined to confirm details.
Toobin is one of the most well-known media legal analysts in the US. He has has worked for the New Yorker for more than 25 years, and is is also a senior legal analyst at CNN.
A spokeswoman for the magazine said in a statement that Toobin “has been suspended while we investigate the matter”.
I will post tonight
Revolutions are not pretty things; they are violent, destructive, unpredictable and people die. Revolutions don’t happen in the capitol with angry people holding signs. They happen in the streets when anger and oppression boil over in an explosive and organic mixture.
They are frightening because they are not distant and not at the actual seat of power. They are in your streets and your town. There is destruction and your courthouse and police department are on fire. Things are close to home and not on some distant field in a foreign land.
There is a slow and simmering anger burning in our country right now. Just below the civility that we all maintain is the collective feeling that we have had just about enough. In the recent elections only one third of eligible voters decided to turn out and vote.
What does that tell you? That 2/3 of the population is lazy? I think not. They have realized that their vote doesn’t count and those in power are going to do what it is that they want to do. The elite cadres that rule from on high don’t care what you have to say; they will do whatever it takes to maintain power. What comes next won’t be another wave election that sweeps people into power that are going to fix everything.
No one believes it or them. They will do what they want and stuff their pockets in the mean time, getting richer as the country gets poorer.
This won’t end until every town becomes Ferguson.
I hear a lot about “Keeping people on your side” by not attacking infrastructure or rioting, but that is not how revolutions work. Revolutions are born of chaos and violence and boil up in an instant . In an insurgency it is important to have the support of the populace but a revolution is different; it thrives on chaos.
When the anger quotient hits the appropriate level and boils over, it is directed at any symbol of the seat of power. The police become targets because they are either for or against the cause and the ones who attempt control become a symbol of the enemy. The court house, the county building, anything that supports the system becomes a target of the unleashed anger.
As I said, they are not pretty things and people die. It is not an end that most people want but at the current rate, that is where we are heading. Change is not coming at the ballot box. The vote has been bought before it is even cast. Without the backing of millions of dollars you can’t even have a chance at running.
Millions upon millions of Americans have the feeling that their liberty, their freedom, their republic are being stolen from beneath them. They have the feeling that the police state forming around them is becoming an occupying army. They have the feeling that their opportunity to change things peacefully has been stolen.
Sooner or later that is going to boil over and when it does it will not be pretty. Change won’t truly happen until people are that angry, until every town is Ferguson.
2020 : We aren’t voting our way out of this. Our republic is done. Free America is something that Grandparents will tell their children about. Unless.. Those of us left that still have the will to be free, are willing to keep this country free. Tough choices friends. Time is short and you have to decide… Am I a free American…. Or not.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf vetoed a bill that would allow the state’s restaurants to open at full capacity, saying that Covid-19 cases have been rising.
“To the extent that there is a resurgence of the virus this fall and winter, we need these critical mitigation guidelines to remain in place, and we need to retain the ability to implement further mitigation measures if necessary,” Wolf wrote.
The bill was passed in the state’s Republican-led House on Sept. 23 and would have allowed restaurants, bars and clubs to return to full capacity at their own discretion.
The bill would have called for continued social distancing and barrier use, but would have eliminated the requirement that a meal must be purchased to get an alcoholic beverage.
Wolf said in his letter to state lawmakers that removing the meal requirement with alcohol “increases the likelihood of COVID-19 outbreaks.
