Watch: Wisconsin Police Officer Calls Back IRS Scammer


An Eau Claire, WI police officer got a call from a man pretending to be an IRS agent accusing the officer of fraud, so he decided to return the call and have the conversation filmed. In the video, the scammer asks the officer, Kyle Roder, for his address when he does not know his case number. “But you said you’re going to issue a warrant for me and come to my house,” Roder responds. “If you don’t have my address, how are you going to do that?” The two went back and forth before Roder asked the “agent” for his name and badge number. “This is James Maxwell, and I’m holding a badge number of ML0544501221, that’s my badge number, sir,” the scammer says. Roder asks him to repeat it so he can jot it down, but the scammer slips up by saying his name is “James Johnson.” The officer then replies, “I thought you said it was James Maxwell last time.” “James Maxwell Johnson, sir,” the scammer says. The video then cuts to Detective Don Henning, who explains that sheriff departments do not get arrest warrants from the IRS. The Eau Claire Police Department wanted to post the video to

Watch: CNN’s Ham, Cuomo Get in Heated Health Care Debate


Things got a little heated Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.” In a debate about health care, host Chris Cuomo insulted network contributor Mary Katharine Ham by calling her “cheap.” “[Y]ou can be nasty about it or you can listen to me,” Ham responded. “I am a person, single mom of two, who has lost three or four plans since Obamacare passed,” she added. “I was told I would not. That was a lie. When I said that I would lose my plan, people called me a liar when this was going on. I have had a 160 percent increase in my premiums. I was told those would go down, and I’ve had a 300 percent increase in my deductible. One of the ways you can fix that is by cutting some of these ‘essential health benefits’ because they are indeed not essential.” (h/t Daily Caller) Follow Breitbart.tv on @BreitbartVideo

Watch: Gorsuch Responds to Charge From Student Accusing Him of Discrimination Against Pregnant Female Lawyers


Tuesday at his confirmation before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Judge Neil Gorsuch responded to an accusation made by former Obama administration staffer Jennifer Sisk that he once told students women manipulate maternity leave. Sisk, a graduate of the University of Colorado Law School, alleged Gorsuch made the comments in a legal ethics class. However, when confronted by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Gorsuch promptly denied the allegation. Transcript as follows: DURBIN: Let me ask you this specific one. It was 1993 and you were at Oxford, when you believe you first met this professor. Professor Finnis was tapped by the then-Colorado Solicitor General Timothy Tymkovich, to help defend a 1992 state constitutional amendment that broadly restricted the state from protecting gay, Lesbian and bisexual people from discrimination. During the course of the deposition which he gave in support of that effort, Finnis argued that antipathy toward LGBT people, specifically toward gay sex, was rooted not just in religious tradition, but Western law and society at large. He referred to homosexuality as bestiality in the course of this as well. Were you aware of that? GORSUCH: Senator, I — I know he testified in the Romer case. I can’t say sitting here I

Chicago Music Store Forced to Shut Down Over Owners’ Trump Support


Suzzanne Monk and Alexander Duvel, owners of Worlds of Music Chicago, said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” that their Trump support is causing them to shut down their music store in April. Monk said she was “outed” as a Trump supporter after she and her husband posted about the University of Illinois-Chicago rally that was shut down by protesters. “We actually drew some attention from the left, and they ‘outed’ us at that point as Trump supporters,” Monk said. Since being “outed,” Monk said she and Duvel have been subjected to online threats and a decline in business, adding that friends have been wary of recommending anyone to the store because they back President Donald Trump. “[It was] like I was just becoming more of a liability to [friends] because they couldn’t associate or recommend my shop to do business simply because of their peer group being so seriously anti-Trump,” Duvel explained. Monk added that many people the couple had known for a long time decided the two were white supremacists and xenophobes without any evidence other than they voted for Trump. While Monk and Duvel are closing down the retail side of their store, they will now focus on online
