    ATLANTA (AP) — The use of a restraint chair by an Atlanta-area sheriff does not amount to excessive force under any clearly established law and federal charges against him should be dismissed, his lawyer argued Monday. A federal prosecutor countered that Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill very clearly used excessive force against people in his agency’s custody when he ordered them to be held in a restraint chair without justification and as punishment. A federal grand jury indicted Hill in April, finding he had violated the civil rights of four people at the county jail. A subsequent indictment filed in July added another alleged victim. Attorneys for Hill have argued the U.S. Department of Justice has never brought criminal charges for any behavior similar to what’s alleged in the indictment and that prosecutors went after him because of his controversial past. “If his name weren’t Victor Hill, your honor, we wouldn’t be here,” defense attorney Lynsey Barron said during a hearing on a defense request to dismiss the indictment. A sheriff’s office policy approved by Hill says restraint chairs may...
    (CNN)Prosecutors in the case against former President Donald Trump's ex-adviser Steve Bannon have accused him of attempting to try his criminal case through the media instead of in court, saying his tactics could affect witnesses against him, according to a new filing in DC District Court. Bannon is trying to convince a judge not to bar him and his lawyers from sharing documents he receives from the Justice Department with the public before his trial. The DOJ prosecutors said in the filing Sunday some of those records must stay private while the case is pending, because they include internal communications between congressional staffers and notes of FBI interviews with witnesses who could testify against Bannon at trial. Steve Bannons lawyers signal they want to slow walk the criminal case against him"Allowing the defendant to publicly disseminate reports of witness statements will have the collateral effect of witness tampering because it will expose witnesses to public commentary on their potential testimony before trial and allow a witness to review summaries of other witnesses' statements recounting the same event or events," the...

Zelensky told reporters on November 26 that Ukrainian security services had briefed him about an alleged attempt to topple Ukraine’s government starting on December 1. He said Kyiv had both intelligence and audio intercepts proving the efforts to plan a coup in Ukraine. President Zelensky detailed the intercepted plan during an in-person news conference in Kyiv on Friday. “I received information that on the 1st (of December) there will be a coup d’etat in our country,” he said. “I think this is important information, December 1-2 … it’s not only intelligence that we have, it’s also audio intercepts, where representatives of Ukraine, so to speak, discuss with representatives of Russia Rinat Akhmetov’s participation in the coup in Ukraine,” the leader revealed. “They suggest a billion dollars will be allocated, and so on. I believe that this is a setup targeting businessman Rinat Akhmetov,” the president opined. Rinat...

    WASHINGTON (CBS/CNN) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said Monday that she won’t be supporting President Joe Biden’s renomination of Jerome Powell – whom she once called a “dangerous man” – as Federal Reserve chair. Powell’s four-year term is up in February, and Biden faced a key decision of whether to keep Powell, who was put in the job by a Republican, in the government’s most important economic policy job. READ MORE: Gov. Charlie Baker Tours Small Businesses In Needham To Promote Shopping LocalThe White House cited Powell’s “steady leadership” amid the economic turbulence of the pandemic as a reason for the decision. The Powell-led Fed took a series of unprecedented steps in March and April 2020 that helped ensure the Covid recession did not morph into a full-blown depression. Powell is supported by Republicans and moderate Democrats but has faced significant opposition from some progressive Democrats, who criticize his track record on financial regulation.

    SALEM (CBS) – Court documents show the woman who was shot leaving work in Salem Monday night was denied a restraining order against the man who police say pulled the trigger.

The woman remains in the hospital with life threatening injuries.

    Prosecutor Thomas Binger made the unusual argument on Monday in a Kenosha, Wisconsin county court that the mob had the “right” to chase Kyle Rittenhouse after he shot Joseph Rosenbaum, and that he had no right to defend himself against them. Binger, delivering his closing argument in the 10-day murder trial, argued that Rittenhouse had provoked the violence that led to the shooting deaths of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber, and the severe wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz near midnight on Aug. 25, 2020, during riots that were led by Black Lives Matter demonstrators in the small Midwestern city. Though all three of the alleged victims were chasing Rittenhouse at the time, Binger portrayed them as concerned citizens trying to stop an “active shooter.” Though he argued that Rittenhouse could not reasonably believe that the first man shot, convicted child rapist Joseph Rosenbaum, would actually disarm him, Binger said the crowd was justified in trying to do so. He argued that Rittenhouse was to blame for choosing to flee Rosenbaum into a group of parked cars, rather than an open field....

    The Russian-born analyst who served as British ex-spy Christopher Steele's main source in compiling the 'dirty dossier' on Donald Trump has slammed the federal charges against him as a political hatchet job. In a fiery statement to DailyMail.com, Igor Y. Danchenko's attorney blasted the federal charges unsealed last week as 'false allegations' and 'a false narrative designed to humiliate and slander' him. In a 39-page indictment, Special Counsel John H. Durham alleged that Danchenko lied to investigators about his contact with a political crony of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who supplied at least one of the claims that appeared in Steele's 2016 dossier.  Durham is investigating the origins of the FBI's Crossfire Hurricane investigation into claims that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.  Igor Y.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden said Wednesday the Democrats’ setbacks in Tuesday’s elections underscore that the party needs to “produce for the American people,” but he pushed back against the notion that the off-year election results were a repudiation of his presidency. Biden insisted that his inability to get Congress to pass a $1 trillion infrastructure deal and a $1.75 trillion package of social and climate programs ahead of the voting didn’t make a difference. In Virginia’s governor’s race Democrat Terry McAuliffe lost to first-time Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin in a state that Biden won by 10 percentage points a year ago. “I think we should have passed it before Election Day, “ Biden said. ”But I’m not sure that I would have been able to change” people’s minds in Republican-leaning areas either way. He added that, “people are upset and uncertain about a lot of things” including the pandemic, the job market and the price of a gallon of gasoline. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    New York Attorney General Letitia James has fired back at Andrew Cuomo's claim that her report on the sexual harassment allegations against him was a politically motivated ploy to launch her candidacy for governor. Speaking to reporters on Monday in Manhattan days after announcing her own candidacy, James defended her August report that led directly to Cuomo's resignation as governor, according to the New York Post.  'Listen, we completed our investigation. Our investigation included thousands and thousands of pieces of evidence and substantiated and corroborated all of the allegations,' she said. 'The Sheriff of Albany County has engaged in an independent investigation and my work is done. But I believe the women,' added James, an elected Democrat. The fierce war of words comes as the 2022 New York governor's race heats up, with James openly challenging Cuomo's replacement, Democrat Kathy Hochul, and Mayor Bill de Blasio reportedly mulling his own bid for the Executive Mansion.  New York Attorney General Letitia James has fired back at Andrew Cuomo's claim that her report on the sexual harassment allegations against him was politically motivated...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper took the unusual step on Friday of giving a shout out to his time-slot rival Neil Cavuto, praising the Fox News host’s pro-vaccine messaging and denouncing the death threats he had received from viewers. Cavuto, who is immunocompromised as a cancer survivor with multiple sclerosis, was briefly off the air after he tested positive for Covid-19. In a remote appearance, Cavuto expressed gratitude that he had been vaccinated because it made his illness significantly less severe and he urged his viewers to put politics aside and “please get vaccinated.” Unfortunately, not everyone watching responded positively to Cavuto’s message, and he received mean tweets and even death threats. Cavuto was undeterred and continued to encourage people to get the Covid-19 vaccine. “A quick note from us here at The Lead,” said Tapper near the end of the first hour of his show, “We don’t often mention our competitors, but the Fox channel anchor opposite us from 4:00 until 5:00 Eastern, Neil Cavuto, has been in the news.” “We just wanted take a moment to say a couple things about...

    Russell Westbrook had a quadruple-double for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Oklahoma City Thunder but that isn’t a good thing. Under normal circumstances, an NBA star putting up a quadruple-double would be an awesome achievement. What Russell Westbrook did on Wednesday night against the Thunder proved that’s not always the case. The Lakers guard did indeed post a quadruple-double — it was just not something to celebrate. Westbrook had 20 points, 13 assists and 14 rebounds, which would be a pretty great stat line without the 10 turnovers to go with it.Russell Westbrook turnovers killed the Lakers vs. the ThunderFrom here on out, that feat should be dubbed “The Russell Westbrook.” Or, in the words of @WorldWideWob, “The Westbruple-Double.” That’s the Westbrook experience for you. He’s outstanding in so many facets of the game, but he can also be an absolute liability. The numbers look incredible until you look at what they cost the Lakers in the long run. A 41-19 lead after the first quarter was wiped away over the next three quarters as the Thunder took advantage...
    Caitlyn Jenner has come to Dave Chappelle's defense amid controversy over his Netflix special The Closer, saying the comic is '100% right' to stand up to transgender protesters angered by his gags. Jenner, the world's most famous transgender woman, tweeted Tuesday: 'Dave Chappelle is 100% right. 'This isn't about the LGBTQ movement. It's about woke cancel culture run amok, trying to silence free speech.'  'We must never yield or bow to those who wish to stop us from speaking our minds,' the retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete wrote.    She spoke as LGBTQ activists continue to bash the comic for his jokes about the transgender community in the special. Jenner was also moved to speak-out after transgender employees at the streaming service's office staged a walkout in protest of the production last week, with Chappelle taking to Instagram Monday to clear the air. In the video, which contained a clip from one the comedian's recent sets, Chappelle extinguished rumors that he turned down an invitation to speak with Netflix's trans employees, and urged fans to not blame the LGBTQ community for the backlash he...
    A former Arkansas judge who served prison time for granting lenient sentences to young male defendants in exchange for sexual favors is now trying to get civil lawsuits filed against him by the victims dismissed, citing judicial immunity. Joseph Boeckmann, now aged 75, pleaded guilty in 2017 to charges of mail fraud and witness tampering, and was sentenced to five years in prison for coercing men, some as young as 16, into posing for nude pictures and being spanked with wooden paddles as a form of community service.

    (CNN)Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders denounced former President Donald Trump in strong terms in an interview released Tuesday but said Twitter's permanent suspension of the former Republican president doesn't sit right with him."Look, you have a former president in Trump, who is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a xenophobe, a pathological liar, an authoritarian, somebody who doesn't believe in the rule of law. This is a bad news guy," Sanders, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, said on the New York Times podcast "The Ezra Klein Show" when asked by Klein if there's "truth to the critique that liberals have become too censorious.""But if you're asking me, do I feel particularly comfortable that the President, the then-President of the United States could not express his views on Twitter? I don't feel comfortable about that," Sanders continued.Two days after the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, Twitter permanently suspended Trump from its platform, saying the decision was "due to the risk of further incitement of violence" and that Trump's last posts "violated the company's policy against glorification of...
    Seattle police used a Baby Yoda Lego set to take down a shoplifting scheme allegedly orchestrated by a local thrift shop owner who trafficked in thousands of dollars worth of stolen Legos.  Mark Brady, 67, owner of Rummage Around, was arrested last week for allegedly running a network of shoplifters, who would go out into neighboring stores in Seattle to steal items Brady could sell at his store. The Lego ring was busted after an undercover detective sold a 1,073-piece Lego set to Brady, only after telling the owner it was stolen, the Seattle Police Department said.  Brady 'was most likely directing … prolific shoplifters to steal property from retail stores for his own benefit of buying them at extremely low prices and reselling them to others,' Seattle police said in their report.  The Seattle Police Department found thousands of dollars worth of stolen goods, including 171 Lego sets, at the Rummage Around thrift shop, in Seattle Police tracked down the stolen good's to Seattle's Pike Place Market, pictured Brady denies any wrong doing and was released from jail earlier...
    A prominent Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) biology professor and researcher has filed a lawsuit, claiming he was unjustly ousted from the biomedical institute where he worked over false sexual harassment claims concocted by a vengeful jilted lover.

    Former MI6 operative Christopher Steele's wife and business partner pushed him to keep the most salacious details about Donald Trump's time in Moscow out of the memos he was writing for clients.  Steele was interviewed by ABC News' George Stephanopoulos for a new special, Out of the Shadows, the Man Behind the Steele Dossier, which came out on Hulu Monday.  'My view has always been we have to stay true to the intelligence. I've seen situations in the past where things have been smoothed off on the edges, where things that might seem a bit outlandish have been left out, so on and so forth, and to me that's wrong,' Steele told Stephanopoulos explaining why he believed it was important for the 'golden showers' allegations to appear in his report.   Christopher Steele said in a new documentary that his wife didn't think he should include the infamous 'golden showers' story in his memos to clients as he looked into Russian relations with Donald Trump  Steele put into what would eventually be dubbed the 'Steele dossier' claims he heard from sources...
    A 4'8 black woman who lost her eye in a car accident was filmed being flung to the ground by a white sheriff's deputy with such force that her braids broke off.    Shantel Arnold, 34, was attacked by the deputy from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office on September 20 after she was previously ambushed by three neighborhood boys, locals say.  Arnold, standing at a height of 4'8 and weighing 100 pounds, was seen as an easy target for the boys due to her small, skinny frame and her missing eye from a prior car accident, it is claimed. The deputy then went after Arnold, who had used a stick to fend the boys off as her stepfather Lionel Gray, 71, shooed them off, according to eyewitnesses. He is said to have begun attacking Arnold after she refused to talk to him about what had happened, because she just wanted to get home.   A 14 second video showed the deputy, who hasn't been named, hurling Arnold to the ground, prompting outrage among family members and racial justice groups who say she...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci has argued that he has been an easy target for conspiracy theorists because he makes recommendations based on 'science, data and hard facts' - and that becomes an 'inconvenient truth' for them. During an interview on Fox News Sunday, Fauci said: 'I have stood for always making science data and evidence, be what we guide ourselves by and I think people who feel differently, who have conspiracy theories, who deny reality, that's looking them straight in the eye.' 'Those are people that don't particularly care for me, and that's understandable because what I do and I try very hard is to be guided by the truth. Sometimes the truth becomes inconvenient for some people, so they react against me.'  The immunologist, reiterating that 'under normal circumstances' — which he notes we currently are not in — he is 'not comfortable' telling people how to act. However, he argued that a fifth wave of the virus is possible if there is not a spike in vaccinations and is once again encouraging Americans to get the jab. Dr. Anthony Fauci claims he...
    Donald Trump reportedly made an unprompted reference to allegations in the Steele dossier that he hired Russian prostitutes to pee on him in a Moscow hotel during a private GOP dinner on Thursday. He was speaking at a high-dollar retreat in Palm Beach, Florida for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group working to elect more GOP senators to Congress. 'I'm not into golden showers,' Trump told his audience of GOP senators, donors, lobbyists and strategists. He then seemed to bring up former First Lady Melania Trump and claimed she doubted the salacious claim in the former British spy's report.

    Former President Donald Trump has reportedly hit a social media company with a cease-and-desist letter for misleading its users into thinking he is using its platform. Social media app 2nd1st, which is using Trump's likeness to suggest he's posting on its platform, appears to have a conservative user base and calls itself a space for "uncensored news and chat." “Specifically, it appears the 2nd1st application profile includes images implying President Donald J. Trump uses or otherwise endorses the application, which he does not,” Trump's attorney Nathan D. Groth wrote in the cease-and-desist letter obtained by the New York Post. “2nd1st’s unauthorized use of President Donald J. Trump’s name, image, and likeness is likely to lead individuals to believe that President Trump has authorized, sponsored, or approved such application which he does not.” The app also features profiles for prominent Republicans, such as Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, as well as Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee. It's not clear if the profiles are fake or real.

    The trans woman who Dave Chappelle said was hounded to death in his controversial Netflix show had defended the funnyman during a previous attack from the trans community. Daphne Dorman was 44 when she killed herself in 2019 after defending Chappelle for jokes made during a Netflix special that year.  ‘When she did that, the trans community dragged that b**** through Twitter,' Chappelle told the audience in The Closer, his latest standup act on Netflix that has had many critics calling for him to be cancelled. 'For days, they was going in on her and she was on her own because she’s funny,' he continued, hinting the harassment might have contributed to her suicide. ‘It’s a true story; my heart was broken. I don’t know what was going on, but I’ll bet dragging her didn’t help.’ Dorman, who began transitioning to a woman in 2014, was an up-and-coming comedian who opened a show for Chappelle.   Daphne Dorman, 44, was a transgender amateur comic opened for comedian Dave Chappelle Her humor veiled a dark past mired by a troubled childhood that left...

    Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West, who is currently recovering from a case of COVID-19, said his hospitalization with the virus has made him “more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates.” West, who announced Saturday night that he has coronavirus-related pneumonia, advocated for monoclonal antibody infusion therapy as a way to combat COVID-19 instead of vaccines. “I can attest that, after this experience, I am even more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates. Instead of enriching the pockets of Big Pharma and corrupt bureaucrats and politicians, we should be advocating the monoclonal antibody infusion therapy,” Allen said on Twitter from the hospital Sunday morning. 5/ I can attest that, after this experience, I am even more dedicated to fighting against vaccine mandates.

    If Dog The Bounty Hunter were to find fugitive Brian Laundrie, he wouldn't be able to arrest or detain him or he'd run the risk of being charged with kidnapping, DailyMail.com can reveal.  That's because Dog, whose real name is Duane Chapman, is not actually licensed as a bounty hunter or private investigator in Florida - or anywhere else that DailyMail.com has found - making his hunt for Laundrie potentially dicey as he's legally banned from arresting or holding anyone against their will. According to professional Florida bounty hunters, there is no legal difference between Dog or any citizen who decides to join the search for Laundrie, whose girlfriend Gabby Petito was found murdered on September 19 in a secluded part of Teton County, Wyoming. And making a citizen's arrest is verboten - unless you catch the offender in the act of committing a crime.  Dog The Bounty Hunter joined the manhunt for Brian Laundrie last month and has mainly been searching a Florida camp site. DailyMail.com can reveal that Dog, real name Duane Chapman, cannot arrest or hold anyone against...
    A JUDGE dramatically recommended that a lawsuit against Cristiano Ronaldo by his rape accuser be dismissed last night. The Manchester United winger, 36, who returned to Old Trafford in August, has fought off Kathryn Mayorga’s civil case – two years after a criminal probe against him was dropped. 5Football ace Cristiano Ronaldo's lawsuit accusing him of rape was dropped by a judge last nightCredit: PA 5The Manchester United winger, 36, battled a two-year criminal probe against Kathryn MayorgaCredit: AP:Associated Press His lawyers attempted to get the lawsuit thrown out, alleging her attorney got his hands on hundreds of pages of stolen correspondence between Ronaldo and his team. The ‘Football Leaks’ documents were allegedly hacked from the Portuguese forward and his representatives, before being passed to her legal team. US Magistrates Judge Daniel Albregts agreed last night and concluded lawyers for Ms Mayorga had erred when they got hold of stolen documents. Peter Christiansen, Ronaldo’s lawyer, said last night: “We are pleased with the Court’s detailed review of this matter and its willingness to justly apply the law to the facts...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Just as soon as the Patriots get through a significant reunion, another one emerges. With the Panthers winning the seemingly underwhelming sweepstakes for the suddenly available Stephon Gilmore,  the Patriots are now set to face off against the cornerback with whom they “mutually” parted ways on Wednesday. READ MORE: Patriots Trade Stephon Gilmore To Panthers For Sixth-Round PickThe Patriots are playing all four NFC South teams this season, with the Panthers on the schedule in Carolina in Week 9. It won’t quite have the same oomph as Tom Brady visiting Foxboro, but it’s nevertheless noteworthy, considering Gilmore essentially forced his way out of New England by refusing to pay for the $7 million he was due in 2021. That will be a tough game for the Patriots regardless, as it comes after they return from Los Angeles for a game against the Chargers on Halloween.

    Former President Donald Trump truly is his own worst enemy. All he has to do is open his mouth, and laws get broken, indictments start flowing, evidence builds, and criminal cases are shored up. His most recent gaffe took place in Perry, Georgia, last month, when during a rally, he went after his arch-nemesis Gov. Brian Kemp for refusing to overturn his presidential loss to President Joe Biden. Now the Brookings Institution has updated its report to include some extremely damning comments Trump made in his vitriolic speech. During the rally, Trump twice said he’d asked Kemp to call a “special election” in order to decertify his defeat in Georgia.  “I said, ‘Brian, listen, you have a big election integrity problem in Georgia. I hope you can help us out and call a special election and let’s get to the bottom of it for the good of the country,’” Trump said. The report highlights Trump’s “special election” comments as a new piece of evidence for investigators, one that according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution could reflect the concept that Trump could have declared martial law in order to strong-arm states...
    A Chicago cop who was caught on camera appearing to tackle a black woman who was walking her dog in a closed park has 24 previous allegations of misconduct, the woman's lawyer has said.  Nikkita Brown complained she was attacked by the cop while walking her small dog in Chicago's Lincoln Park at around midnight on August 28. In bodycam footage released this week, Brown and her dog are seen walking away from the officer, before she turns around with her phone in her hand.  The officer then tries to grab the phone, before tackling her - knocking her out of her shoes - and putting her in a body lock.  The officer involved was identified by Brown's lawyers as Bruce R. Dyker, 51.  Attorney Keenan J. Saulter says Dyker has been the subject of 24 allegations of misconduct during his career, which began in 1998.  The complaints include 11 use of force reports, false arrest, operational/personnel violations, a traffic report, lock procedure violation, domestic violence, and verbal abuse, according to the law firm, citing the Citizens Police Data Project.  Three of the...
    HARRY KANE has admitted that he did not expect to get on against Europa Conference League minnows NS Mura last night. But the Tottenham striker was delighted to be able to bag a hat-trick during his half-hour cameo. 3Son Heung-min threw Harry Kane the matchball at the final whistleCredit: AP 3The 28-year-old bagged a quickfire hat-trickCredit: Getty Kane might have been expecting to keep his feet up, when goals from Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso put Spurs 2-0 up after just eight minutes. But the Lilywhites' performance grew sluggish, with Ziga Kous giving them a scare by reducing the deficit seven minutes into the second-half. Under-fire manager Nuno Espirito Santo called on Kane as well as Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura on the hour mark. And it was the former that did the business for him as Spurs ran out 5-1 winners on a low-key night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. After his hat-trick, the first in the brief history of the Europa Conference League, Kane told BT Sport: "Every striker wants to score goals. "I probably wasn't expecting to...
    DOUGLAS LIMA revealed his respect to Jake Paul and refuses to call him 's***' but said fighting the YouTuber would be 'too easy'. Paul, who is 4-0 as a boxer, has made a habit of feuding MMA fighters lately with his last two wins coming against ex-UFC stars. 2Douglas Lima revealed his respect to Jake Paul and refuses to call him 's***'Credit: Getty 2Jake Paul beat ex-UFC champion Tyron WoodleyCredit: Getty Images - Getty The most recent was a points win over ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, 39, which followed from a knockout win against Ben Askren, 37.

Ex-Bellator champion Lima is in full admiration of the brothers, especially unbeaten Jake, but fancies his chances against both. He told MMA Fighting: “I think I would defeat either...
    Tom Brady’s father hasn’t shied away from talking about his son’s return to New England on Sunday but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback poked fun at his father’s eagerness with a statement this week.  During his latest episode on the "Let’s Go!" podcast, Brady prepared a cheeky statement to address Tom Brady Sr.’s comments last week where he said the Patriots moved on because "they didn’t want to afford him or didn’t want to keep him when his last contract came up." TOM BRADY ON RETURN TO NEW ENGLAND IN BUCS-PATRIOTS MATCHUP: ‘I’M NOT GOING TO NECESSARILY REMINISCE’  "I’ve actually prepared a statement that I wanted to say, and it’s really all that I have to say on the subject," he said, via ProFootballTalk. "Comments made by Thomas Edward Brady, a 77-year-old insurance company CEO, who should know better at this point in his life, don’t necessarily reflect the views or positions held by his son, Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr. So furthermore, should Tom Sr. continue to speak out on behalf of his son without the express written consent,...
    A woman who accused R Kelly of forcing her to perform oral sex on him when she was just 16 years old rejoiced on Monday after the disgraced R&B singer was convicted in Brooklyn federal court of sex trafficking charges.

    Donald Trump's pick to defeat Liz Cheney in next year's midterm election called him 'racist and xenophobic' in the 2016 presidential race but is now one of his most fervent supporters.  Harriet Hageman, a longtime Wyoming Republican operative who was once a close ally of the Cheney family, was part of a GOP resistance movement against Trump in the 2016 presidential primary, The New York Times revealed on Monday.  During the 2016 Republican Convention in Cleveland, Hageman worked with supporters of Ted Cruz in a failed attempt to force a floor vote between Cruz and Trump for the nomination - regardless of the fact Trump won enough primaries and caucuses to take the title.  She blamed Democrats for Trump's nomination, saying they had crossed the aisle to vote in GOP primaries to vote for Trump.   She called Trump the 'weakest candidate' and warned the party would be stuck with 'somebody who is racist and xenophobic.'

    A Texas school board has moved towards firing a principal over claims he pushed critical theory after he raised eyebrows over an intimate Facebook photoshoot with his wife.  On Monday, the Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District school board unanimously voted 7-0 for the non-renewal of Colleyville Heritage High School principal Dr. James Whitfield's contract.  It is the first step in a two-step process that could see Whitfield lose his job. He will now be forced to publicly defend his position before a final vote is held on whether he should remain as principal.   Whitfield was placed on paid administrative leave in August after a former school board candidate accused him of teaching and promoting critical race theory. Concerns were also raised from the district about a decade-old beachside photoshoot he took with his wife for a previously anniversary.  They were snapped enjoying an intimate -  but fully clothed - outdoor embrace for a shoot with a professional photographer and sparked concerns after they were uncovered on his Facebook profile.  Whitfield, (pictured) who has denied promoting Critical Race Theory, addressed the board...
    Former President Donald Trump filed a $100 million lawsuit Tuesday against The New York Times and his niece, Mary Trump, accusing them of "tortiously breaching and/or interfering with his contractual rights and otherwise maliciously conspiring against him" for a 2018 report on his taxes. "The defendants engaged in an insidious plot to obtain confidential and highly-sensitive records which they exploited for their own benefit and utilized as a means of falsely legitimizing their publicized works. The defendants’ actions were motivated by a personal vendetta and their desire to gain fame, notoriety, acclaim and a financial windfall and were further intended to advance their political agenda," the suit filed in New York's Dutchess County states.  Trump is demanding no less than $100 million in damages.  NEW YORK TIMES PENS PSAKI PUFF PIECE AFTER BAD WEEK FOR THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION  The suit also names as defendants Times reporters David Barstow, Susanne Craig and Russ Buettner, who collectively earned a Pulitzer Prize in 2019 for their "explanatory reporting" into Trump's wealth based on tax documents they obtained.  The former president alleges the trio of...

    Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal is regarded as one of the greatest centers in league history — and it showed during the 2002 NBA Finals against the then-New Jersey Nets. During an appearance on "Scoop B Radio" podcast with Brandon Robinson, O’Neal talked about the Nets and how they put up minimal effort against him.

    Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin voted Republican in nine presidential elections in a row, starting with Ronald Reagan in 1980 and ending with Mitt Romney in 2012. But the conservative columnist was so repulsed by Donald Trump's misogyny that she voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Joe Biden in 2020, and the fact that Trump turned off so many female voters is the focus of Rubin's new book, "Resistance: How Women Saved Democracy from Donald Trump," due out this Tuesday, September 21. Rubin, in fact, believes that Trumpism has been so toxic for the Republican Party that she no longer describes herself as "conservative" — a word she believes Trumpistas have tainted and sullied. The Post columnist, born in the early 1960s, was never a far-right culture warrior, but she was a Republican along the lines of former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, former New Jersey Gov. Christie Todd Whitman and the late Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. In an except from her book published by the Washington Post, Rubin explains, "Donald Trump's victory in 2016 came as a...
