    THE Turpin family children have claimed they were told "to Google it" when they asked for help from some guardians after their escape from their parents' House of Horrors. The 13 siblings were rescued from their Perris, California home almost four years ago when authorities found the children, who were between 2 to 29, living in their own filth and deprived of food and basic health care.  4The 13 Turpin children were rescued from their family home almost four years agoCredit: Refer to Caption 4Jordan Turpin was the one who escaped from her home and called the police, leading to her and her siblings' rescueCredit: ABC 20/20 Many hoped that once the siblings escaped their parents, they would be moving onto a brighter future and have stepped up to donate to the family.

    The organization behind the Women's March took some heat on Tuesday after an apology for a reference to the year 1492 in a donation email. The group, which was founded out of the 2017 march and organizes the annual event, sent out an email with the subject line '$14.92.'  The body of the email said: 'We have an important favor to ask.'  Subscribers to the group's email list were then asked if they'd be willing to donate $14.92.  The year 1492 is associated with Christopher Columbus' sailing to the Americas. While Columbus still has a holiday with his name on it, many municipalities have changed it to Indigenous Peoples Day to respect the native peoples who Columbus slaughtered. The Women's March organization is behind the annual marches, which began in 2017 following the election of Donald Trump The group apologized on Twitter for an email that asked for donations of $14.92 The group eventually tweeted an apology. 'We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today,' they said. '$14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an...
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez , a New York Democrat, said her help was not welcomed when it came to the Virginia gubernatorial election. Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin, a Republican, defeated former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, in the Nov. 2 election. Ocasio-Cortez was not asked to help in achieving a Democratic victory, she said in an interview published on Sunday. SOCIAL MEDIA REACTS TO WAUKESHA BLOODSHED "Before the Virginia elections, it was very clear that our help and our participation was not wanted or asked for," she said. "I think it's just sad. I think it was a mistake." Ocasio-Cortez and members of the "Squad" suggested she could have done something to mitigate the "youth turnout collapse" that hit the election hard for Democrats . "Not a single person asked me to send an email, not even to my own list," she said. "And then they turn around and say, 'It's their fault,' when I think it was communicated quite expressly that we were unwelcome to pitch in." AOC's take: McAuliffe lost because...

    The Surgeon General of Florida has some under criticism for declining to mask up for a meeting with a state lawmaker. State Senator Tina Polsky was set to meet with Joseph Ladapo last week, but the Surgeon General and two aides showed up maskless, so she asked them to mask up. They did not. Polsky has cancer and Florida Politics reported she is starting radiation therapy treatment this week. Polsky said she expressed to Ladapo “I had a serious medical condition” and described his response as “very smug.” Polsky said he offered to go outside when she asked him to put the mask on, but she declined. “I don’t want to go outside,” Polsky said she told Ladapo after he made the offer. “I want you to sit in my office and talk to you.” She eventually asked them to leave. Polsky later said she has a mask outside her office asking people to wear masks and “everyone has respected my wishes, except for the surgeon general.” After days of controversy, Ladapo issued a statement Tuesday saying, “I...

    On Thursday night, Rachel Maddow hosted a 2020 election poll worker named Eric Frank who busted a Republican voter for voting twice, once for himself and once for his son. The voter was convicted of election fraud and as a result, Frank collected a payout of $25,000 from Republican Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. Last year, Patrick was one of the most vocal and visible purveyors of the baseless claim that the presidential election had been stolen from Donald Trump. Patrick even went so far as to reward any person who could prove an instance of voter fraud with a bounty of between $25,000 and $1 million. After Frank provided his evidence, Patrick’s campaign wrote him a check for $25,000. The campaign explained that the reward was much less than $1 million because they were hoping to catch “bigger fish.” Frank told The Dallas Morning News he wasn’t sure what was meant by that. On Thursday, Frank explained to Maddow how he busted 72-year-old Ralph Thurman at a polling station in Chester County, Pennsylvania. He said he wasn’t even supposed...

    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld made it clear Wednesday that he was not impressed with people making excuses for the protesters who chased Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema into a bathroom. Gutfeld discussed the incident – where Sinema was verbally accosted in a ladies’ room by protesters trying to pressure her into voting for the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package — on “The Five.” He said that those defending the protestors were essentially suggesting that Sinema had “asked for it.” (RELATED: ‘Let Me Respond To Your Lie’: Greg Gutfeld And Geraldo Rivera Trade Barbs In Heated Exchange) WATCH: Cohost Dana Perino brought up the subject and noted that even President Joe Biden had responded to the incident by saying, “It’s part of the process.” “Kirsten Powers at CNN had this tweet,” Perino continued, reading the tweet aloud. “‘Which is worse – your grandparents being deported or being followed into a bathroom because you refused to stop and listen to people desperate for your help?

    (CNN)The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office was asked to help Wednesday morning in the search for Brian Laundrie at a Florida nature reserve, the office said.Aerial video recorded above the Carlton Reserve showed police vehicles in the area. Steven Bertolino, an attorney for Laundrie's parents, confirmed to CNN that authorities are communicating with him about any developments, but said he was otherwise unable to comment.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said it was 'too soon' to say whether Americans can gather for Christmas in an interview Sunday on Face the Nation.  CBS News' Margaret Brennan asked Fauci about the December holiday after he voiced cautious optimism about the country's COVID-19 numbers going down - however warned that the country needed to remain viligant.  'You know, Margaret, it's just too soon to tell,' President Joe Biden's chief medical expert said about Christmas. 'We've just got to keep concentrating on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time.'  Fauci was doing the rounds on the Sunday shows.  On CNN's State of the Union, he knocked down a belief stoked by Republicans saying that immigrants were 'absolutely not' driving the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on Face the Nation that it was 'too soon' to say whether American families can gather for Christmas  'When you have 700,000 Americans dead and millions and million and millions of Americans...
    The Government has been condemned after refusing to release details of key email conversations involving leading scientists over the origins of Covid-19. This newspaper used Freedom of Information rules to obtain a cache of 32 emails about a secretive teleconference between British and American health officials held early in the pandemic. But officials blacked out almost every word before releasing the crucial documents. Before this discussion, several of the world’s most influential experts believed the new virus most likely came from a laboratory – but days later, the scientists began dismissing such scenarios as ‘implausible’ and branding them conspiracy theories. This newspaper used Freedom of Information rules to obtain a cache of 32 emails about a secretive teleconference between British and American health officials held early in the pandemic The critical call is at the centre of concerns that the scientific establishment tried to stifle debate on the pandemic’s origins, as damning new evidence emerges of US ties to high-risk research on bat viruses in Wuhan, where the first cases emerged in late 2019.

    Social media users have shared some of the cheekiest requests ever made of them - including a woman whose ex-husband asked her to help redecorate his house (despite him having a new girlfriend).

    Chris Wallace asked Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer Sunday about how partisanship in Congress has impacted confirmation battles. Breyer was nominated by Bill Clinton in 1994 and was confirmed 87 to 9. Considering that Breyer was a staffer for the late Senator Ted Kennedy many years ago, Wallace asked if he thinks he would’ve gotten that kind of overwhelming Senate support today “I know what you’re saying, and the answer is of course no,” Breyer said. Wallace then brought up how Mitch McConnell didn’t give Merrick Garland a hearing when appointed by Barack Obama in 2016, but in 2020 he pushed Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination through weeks before the election. “Doesn’t that undercut the authority of the court?” Wallace asked. “I was confirmed and I was nominated,” Breyer remarked. “It’s like asking for the recipe for chicken a la king from the point of view of the chicken.” He laughed a bit, but then added, “That’s the political environment. Now, you may disapprove of it, I may disapprove of it, and if enough people in the public want it to...
    A Portland State University professor who resigned in a scathing public letter in which he slammed the university for not allowing any type of thought that doesn't suit its liberal agenda has received support for his resignation.  Peter Boghossian was a full-time assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University for 10 years until his resignation letter was published on Wednesday, calling it a 'social justice factory' that drives 'intolerance of divergent beliefs'. He shared the letter with Bari Weiss, a former New York Times columnist who quit her role at the paper after claiming to encounter the same refusal to consider non-liberal ideas that Boghossian describes at PSU.  Boghossian has since received support for his letter from conservative personalities, including podcast host and former TV host Megyn Kelly, comedian Rob Schneider, Fox commentator Tammy Bruce and historian Niall Ferguson.  Fox News commentator Tammy Bruce called Boghossian 'one of the heroes among us' Historian Niall Ferguson described Boghossian's open letter as 'devastating' Comedian Rob Schneider also pledged support for Boghossian At the same time, Boghossian is wondering...
    Donald Trump has had a lot to say about how Joe Biden has mishandled the withdrawal from Afghanistan—but, when given the chance to explain what he would have done differently, Trump’s master plan boiled down to leaving the country in smouldering ruins before leaving it forever. The ex-president appeared on Fox Business on Tuesday morning to get some things off his chest a day after the last U.S. troops left Afghanistan. During a curious rant about how he believes unnamed shadowy forces are controlling Biden, Trump shared his alternative withdrawal plans. “It’s something that’s rather incredible,” he said. “They [the people supposedly controlling Biden] do horrible things, vicious things. They cheat, steal, lie. But they can’t do a simple withdrawal from a country that we should never have gone into in the first place... We should have hit that country years ago, hit it them really hard, and then let it rot.” The former president was repeatedly thrown softball questions about how he would’ve handled the situation if he hadn’t lost the election. However, he repeatedly failed to give...

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made plain Friday that President Biden expects U.S. assets to kill the terrorists who ordered the attack on the airport in Kabul amid the evacuation of Americans and Afghans. She added her own dose of colorful language, a day after Biden stated bluntly to those who carried out the attack that 'we will hunt you down and make you pay.'

    Kathy Hochul would have preferred that Andrew Cuomo’s resignation go into effect sooner than 14 days as the outgoing New York governor counts down the final two weeks in the executive mansion in Albany before officially stepping down. Hochul held her first news conference in Albany on Wednesday - a day after the powerful governor announced he would be stepping down after a damning report by the state attorney general accused him of sexually harassing at least 11 women. Cuomo announced his resignation would go into effect in two weeks time - while Hochul said she expected to take charge sooner. ‘It’s not what I asked for,’ the Buffalo native and former congresswoman told reporters in the state capital on Wednesday. She quickly added: ‘However, I’m looking forward to a smooth transition which he promised.’ Rich Azzopardi, a spokesperson for Cuomo, told Fox News that the 14-day period was to ensure a transition to the next administration.

    PILSEN — El Paseo Community Garden is raising money to bring a dog run to a recently acquired plot of land in Pilsen. Since launching last month, the fundraiser has raised more than $8,600, nearing its $10,000 goal. The dog run would be at 947 W. Cullerton Ave., next to the garden. “We are really excited and grateful” for the support from neighbors and local businesses, said Paula Acevedo, a volunteer coordinator for the garden. With the funds, the group plans to expand water service to the dog run and install permanent chain-link fencing and a double-gate system, Acevedo said. Trees will be added to the area, she said. Donations also will help with maintenance of the approximately 6,000-square-foot community-managed dog run.

Almost 100% of the new hospitalizations are with unvaccinated folks. And the deaths are certainly occurring with the unvaccinated folks. These folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflicted pain. We got to get folks to take the shot. The vaccine is the greatest weapon we have to fight COVID. There is no question about that the data proves it. I’ve taken the shot back in December, both shots. It’s just the thing to do.

    Former President Donald Trump said he will give a deposition for his lawsuit against social media companies — even though that means he’ll have to testify about the storming of the U.S. Capitol. Trump sat for an interview to Bill O’Reilly after announcing his class action lawsuit against Twitter, Facebook and Google over his bans from the platforms in the wake of the violent insurrection carried out by his supporters on Jan. 6. As Trump slammed “bad people” in big tech, O’Reilly noted that the lawsuit was “unprecedented,” and he asked Trump how he’ll respond when social media companies argue in court that he was banned for inciting the riot. “I didn’t,” Trump claimed. He went on by denying his involvement in the insurrection, complaining about the media, bragging about the size of the rally that turned into the riotous mob, and once again pushing his false claims about “the fraudulent election.” Trump has a long history of threatening lawsuits that he doesn’t follow through with.

Schmeichel, 34, said: “Has it ever been home? Have they ever won it? “Nineteen-sixty-six? Was that not the World Cup? “To be honest, I haven't given any thought to what it would mean to stop England, more than what it would do for Denmark. “I've focused very little on the England national team, it's what it would do for our country back home, the joy it would bring to a country of only five-and-a-half million, to...
    Vice President Kamala Harris snapped when she was asked about why it took so long for her to visit the southern border, Fox News reported Friday. Harris arrived in El Paso, Texas, for a border visit over 90 days after President Joe Biden appointed her to address the root causes of migration to the U.S., according to Fox News. Harris is scheduled to tour a Border Patrol facility and a processing center before an operational briefing. “It’s not my first trip, I’ve been to the border many times,” Harris said, apparently referencing her visits to the border as a senator, Fox News reported. “Because as I’ve long said, I said back in March I was going to come to the border so this is not a new plan, but the reality of it is we have to deal with the causes and we have to deal with the effects,” Harris said, according to Fox News. Harris, taking Qs in El Paso: “Well, it’s not my first trip. I’ve been to the border many times. … I said back in March...

As Dan Ige prepares to try and improve his record to 8-2 in the UFC, fighting in the main event of UFC Vegas 29, he had no problem admitting his admiration for his opponent Chan Sung Jung. “I’m a fan. I’m not gonna lie. I’m a fan. I’m a fan of his, and that’s one of the reasons why I called for this fight because it’s just an entertaining fight for, not only myself, but for everyone. And, you know, it’s one of those fights where you know, that your idols become your rivals type of moment. And I can’t wait to stand across the cage from him. And we’re gonna put on a great show for everyone.” This match-up is certainly one that should be very entertaining for the fans.  Both Ige and Jung are aggressive, forward-moving fighters so we should expect fireworks from the opening bell.

    President Joe Biden laughed at Rusian President Vladimir Putin’s suggestion that the Capitol insurrection was a justification for cracking down on protesters in Moscow, saying he told Putin that this was “a ridiculous comparison.” The president held a press conference following his summit with Putin, during which he was asked about commments Putin made during his own post-summit presser. PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor told Biden that “When President Putin was questioned today about human rights, he said the reason why he’s cracking down on opposition leaders is because he doesn’t want something like January 6th to happen in Russia, and he also said he doesn’t want to see groups formed like Black Lives Matter.” “What’s your response to that please?” Alcindor asked. Biden let out a laugh before replying. “My response is kind of what I communicated, that I think that’s a ridiculous comparison,” Biden said. “It’s one thing for literally criminals to break through a cordon, go into the Capitol, kill a police officer, and be held unaccountable,” Biden condinued, “and it is for people objecting, marching...

It’s much the safest place to be'.

When asked about the baby's 'meaningful name' Edward said: 'Well, we just wish them all happiness. That’s fantastic news and absolutely, I hope they are very happy'.     The Queen's youngest son was asked about how the Royal Family has coped with a 'difficult few months', especially Harry and Meghan's flurry of US interviews where they have repeatedly taken potshots at his British family, including accusing them of racism.   In an interview with CNN he said: 'It's difficult for everyone but that's families for you'. Edward was also asked how he viewed that 'very public' row in a sit-down with the BBC and replied: 'It's very sad' before adding: 'I...
    Fox News’ Peter Doocy pressed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday over whether there was any plan for Vice President Kamala Harris to visit the border with Mexico. “When the vice president is asked if she has plans to visit the border, she says we’ve been to the border, even though she has not, as vice president,” Doocy noted at an afternoon White House press conference. “Well, as the vice president, she does speak for the actions of the people in the administration,” Psaki replied, saying her “assignment” had been to work with foreign leaders. Doocy followed up, “As we understand it … her main focus is to try and address the root causes of migration. Did somebody decide here that it would not be helpful for her to go to the border and talk to people who just migrated here?” “I think that at some point, she may go to the border,” Psaki said, before reiterating that Harris was speaking with foreign leaders. Doocy followed up once more, noting that Harris described going to the border as a “grand gesture,” and asked...

    An expert who participated in the World Health Organization’s probe of the origins of Covid-19 told 60 Minutes that investigators took the word of Chinese scientists who denied the virus leaked from a Wuhan lab. Peter Daszak, a member of the WHO team and an expert on viral outbreaks and how diseases jump from animals to humans, explained to Lesley Stahl the most likely origin of the virus was a pathway from bats to humans, through a Chinese wet market. “The theory is that somehow that virus got from a bat into one of these wildlife farms. And then the animals were shipped into the market. And they contaminated people while they were handling them,” he said. “Something like 75% of emerging diseases come from animals into people. We’ve seen it before. We’ve seen it in China with SARS.” The World Health Organization report, which leaked on Monday, found the theory that Sars-Cov-2 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as possible, but “extremely unlikely.” The theory that the virus leaked from a lab has been disputed by many experts,...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has fired back at New York Governor Andrew Cuomo following revelations in an article by The New Yorker that detailed how the governor had a dart board made up with de Blasio's face on it. During Friday's Covid-19 briefing, a reporter from CNN asked the mayor about the dartboard allegation, contained in the piece by Ronan Farrow, which is said to exist at the governor's mansion.  Lindsey Boylan, the first woman to accuse Cuomo of sexual harassment back in December, told the magazine she spotted the childish game in the pool house at the governor's mansion in Albany.  'I couldn't believe how brazen that was,' Boylan, who worked for Cuomo's team from March 2015 to October 2018, recalled.   Mayor Bill de Blasio was asked how he felt that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo allegedly putting his face on a dart board at his home. The mayor responded with a barb of his own When reporter Mark Morales asked if the mayor had any reactions to the claim, de Blasion fired back with an insult of...
    Fox News’ Chris Wallace asked Friday why the Biden administration can’t just say there’s a crisis at the border. The semantic issue came up at Thursday’s briefing when Psaki referred to the “crisis on the border,” but then walked it back when asked by a reporter. It came on the heels of comments by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas saying he’s “not spending any time on the language” when directly asked if he would call the situation a crisis. Wallace told Kristin Fisher, “It seems to be largely a self-inflicted wound and the administration seems to have been surprisingly unprepared for it.” He noted how there are currently 14,000 unaccompanied minors in U.S. custody. As for the “crisis” discussion, Wallace simply said, “Why not just call it a crisis? That’s what it is.” “When you get keep getting into this argument saying ‘it’s a challenge, something we have to deal with,’ it sounds a little bit like Nancy Pelosi, like you’re ignoring reality. It obviously is a crisis,” he continued. “This is the biggest surge of minors and...

The co-founder of Podemos Juan Carlos Monedero has assured this Monday before the judge investigating the management of the party that he did not make an invoice ad hoc to justify a payment from the consultant Neurona of 26,200 euros, but it prepared it before the bank asked for it, and has delivered documents to justify its work. The head of the Court of Instruction number 42 of Madrid, Juan José Escalonilla, has taken a statement from Monedero for about an hour as being investigated as a result of the police report that indicates him as the alleged author of a false invoice to justify that he received 26,200 euros from the consultant Neuron that Podemos hired for the April 2019 elections. Legal sources have specified that Monedero has disassociated himself from the relationship between Podemos and Neurona, about which the accusations have not been able to ask him because he has refused to answer their questions. Monedero has disassociated itself from the relationship between Podemos and Neurona Upon leaving the courts, Monedero, who...
    NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander took the initiative to compose a statement that President Joe Biden could use in order to give former President Donald Trump some credit for the success of the vaccination program that’s currently underway. Several news outlets, including ABC News and The New York Times, criticized President Biden’s address to the nation on the anniversary of the Covid pandemic shutdown for failing to credit Trump. At Friday’s White House daily briefing, Alexander asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki about that aspect of the speech, and went a step further by reading his own version of what Biden could have said to credit Trump. Alexander said that Biden “spent a lot of time touting the success of vaccines, yet there was no mention of the president under whose administration these vaccines were developed,” and asked, “Does former President Trump not deserve any credit on vaccines?” Psaki noted that the President and his team have praised the development of vaccines as “a Herculean incredible effort by science and by medical experts. And certainly, we have applauded that...
