‘I Am Such an Instigator': Oath Keeper Leader Charged With Conspiracy in Capitol Riots
Jon CherryAn apparent leader of the Oath Keepers, a far-right militia group, was arrested in Virginia on Tuesday for his alleged role in plotting to attack the Capitol.

Thomas Edward Caldwell, 65, was arrested in Virginia on several federal charges, including conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, after he was allegedly involved in coordinating a plan to disrupt the Jan. 6 congressional session to certify President-elect Joe Biden's electoral victory. During the siege, in which thousands of MAGA supporters stormed the Capitol, five people died and dozens more were injured.

According to a criminal complaint first obtained by The Washington Post, prosecutors allege Caldwell helped organize a group of at least eight people, who were seen "aggressively approaching an entrance to the Capitol." The group was seen wearing military-style gear and helmets as they moved "in an organized and practiced fashion and force[d] their way to the ground of the crowd gathered around a door to the U.S. Capitol."

‘Fox & Friends' Host Gushes Over Trump's Work Ethic: ‘He Watches Every Show'
Fox NewsAccording to Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt, President Donald Trump's nearly obsessive binge-watching of cable news is proof of his strong work ethic. "He watches every show," the Fox host beamed of the president.

With just 24 hours left in Trump's term—which ends with his leaving office with record-low approval ratings after inciting an insurrectionist Capitol riot—the hosts of his favorite morning program seemingly came to grips with the reality that the next White House occupant won't be such a devoted viewer of theirs.

Besides complaining about seditious terrorists being labeled as "terrorists" and grumbling that Trump followers are unfairly accused of acting like a "cult," the Fox & Friends crew also took time to do some rehabbing of the outgoing president's presumably wounded ego.

‘Start Up the Firing Squads': MAGA-Obsessed NYC Court Worker Charged With Threatening to Murder Dem Leaders
Drew Angerer/Getty ImagesA New York City court worker was arrested Tuesday after allegedly threatening to murder several Democratic politicians out of anger over the results of the presidential election.

Brandon Hunt, a 37-year-old employee at the New York State Office of Court Administration, has been charged with making online threats against elected officials, including several Democratic leaders, in several social-media posts since December. After the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, Hunt, who goes by the nickname "X-Ray Ultra," escalated his violent rhetoric, calling for another insurrection when all elected officials are back at the Capitol to "slaughter these motherfuckers."

Authorities raided his Queens home on Tuesday morning and he is in custody, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Beast. The New York State court system also confirmed that Hunt, who was employed as an assistant court analyst in the attorney registration unit, has been suspended without pay.

Israel has been hailed as having the world's most vaccinated population, but Palestinians are not included.
