    MARKLE’S sparkle is fading fast.  Just 42 months after the world rejoiced as the Duchess of Sussex walked out of Windsor Castle’s chapel into the sunlight as a member of the Royal Family, the American actress has now had to apologise for misleading the British High Court.  3Whatever happens now, Meghan’s reputation in Britain is in freefallCredit: Getty Images - Getty The crash of Meghan’s credibility has been dramatic. Her integrity hangs on a thin thread. There will be many in Britain, not least among the Royal Family, who will smile with relief that the woman who hit them with accusations during the Oprah Winfrey interview is getting a taste of her own medicine. Not least of her many false accusations on Oprah was her claim no one in Buckingham Palace was “willing to protect me” and they forced her to be “silent”.  To me, much of the evidence now suggests Palace officials worked overtime to advise and protect her. The saga of Meghan’s risk of heading towards a downfall has some way to run, but this week saw the...

    A federal judge has denied Ghislaine Maxwell's request for jury selection to be held in private ahead of her upcoming trial next month.  Attorneys for the British socialite appeared in court on Thursday afternoon to argue against a traditional selection process, claiming it would not do enough to detect potential bias and prejudice among prospective jurors.  Potential jury members would be less likely to 'respond honestly in open court' due to the 'sensitive' nature of the case and the 'negative' publicity surrounding Maxwell, 59, the defense claimed.  'This case amplifies the likelihood that jurors will be more apprehensive and constrained to respond openly and honestly in open court within earshot of other jurors, members of the public, and the media,' attorney Bobbi Sternheim said in court filings last week.  'The negative publicity has been so pervasive, vitriolic, and extreme that Ms. Maxwell has been demonized in the press.'  The lawyers argued that jurors should be privately and individually questioned instead, to ensure an 'open-minded jury' and a fair trial. This a developing story. More to come.   A federal judge on...

    Chicago police have said 'hell no' to Mayor Lori Lightfoot's plan to mandate vaccines for all city employees.  The Democrat told a press conference on Monday that shots 'are absolutely going to be required' hours after the FDA approved the Pfizer vaccine for over-16s - taking it beyond its emergency phase. The ruling prompted the Pentagon to order all 800,000 active service members to get the shot, while private firms including Delta Airlines and Goldman Sachs also told their staff to get the vaccine. Joe Biden has already signed an executive order requiring millions of federal staff to either get vaccinated or abide by a regular Covid testing scheme.  But cop union boss John Catanzara told Fox: 'This vaccine has no studies for long-term side effects or consequences.

And in a documentary out in 2020, Swift derided Blackburn as “Trump in a wig”. In an interview with Breitbart this week, Blackburn made an appeal for Swift’s support, suggesting the alternative is Marxist authoritarianism. “When you talk about country music, and I know the left is all out now and trying to change country music and make it woke,” Blackburn said. “When I’m talking to my friends who are musicians and entertainers, I say, ‘If we have a socialistic government—if we have Marxism—you are going to be the first ones who will be cut off because the state would have to approve your music.’” “Taylor Swift came after me in my 2018 campaign,” she continued. “But Taylor Swift would be the first...

    White House insiders are 'perplexed' by some of the twists and turns on Kamala Harris' first foreign trip – where the vice president urged migrants not to come, dismissed a border trip as a 'grand gesture,' then said she would make one.  Harris undertook the trip as a demonstration of her new role focusing on the 'root causes' of migration, meeting with the presidents of two countries to discuss poverty, migration, and vaccines.  But she made a series of seemingly conflicting statements about a topic that was certain to surface: her decision not to visit the border at the start of the administration. Administration officials are 'perplexed' at some of the conflicting statements made by Vice President Kamala Harris on her first foreign trip in office By the end of her trip, at a press conference in Mexico City with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Harris said she would go.    'Listen, I've been to the border before and I'll go again,' she said.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was accused of wanting to turn NYC into dystopian horror film The Purge after claiming crime could be reduced by axing prisons.    The Democrat Representative - whose district covers part of the Bronx and Queens - claims says more hospital and counseling services to criminals to treat mentally ill criminals could cut violent crime. But her suggestion horrified one other NYC representative. 'If AOC had her way . . . there'd be no jails, no arrests, no police (except her private security). New York City would be turned into a 24/7 movie set for "The Purge,"' Staten Island Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis said in a tweet. 'It's ludicrous to say this at a time when almost every category of major crime is up in our city and criminals are back onto our streets immediately after being arrested to strike again. She has no regard for public safety, no respect for law enforcement and is a hypocrite because she walks around with private security.' In the fictional movie, The Purge, an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government...
