    Philip Larkin famously wrote that sexual intercourse began in 1963, ‘between the end of the Chatterley ban and the Beatles’ first LP’. It was also when the intimate foibles of an aristocratic ruling class were first exposed to the glare of the mass media and a public ravenous for details. It was the year of Lord Denning’s scathing report on the Profumo affair, in which His Lordship mused on depravity in high places. And 1963 also saw one of the most sensational divorce trials in legal history, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, a three-strand pearl necklace, robbery, a photograph of a ‘headless man’ and a sexual act too shocking to be described in the newspapers of the day. Now the BBC is set to broadcast a major new dramatisation of the case, starring Claire Foy – who has previously portrayed the Queen in the Netflix series, The Crown – as Margaret, Duchess of Argyll. 1963 also saw one of the most sensational divorce trials in legal history, featuring the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, a three-strand pearl necklace, robbery,...

    If it seems like it was just yesterday that U.S. Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene labeled the President of the United States and in fact every Democrat in the country “communists,” it was, which is why it might seem strangely hypocritical that the Republican from Georgia minutes ago was labeling herself the “most attacked” freshman member of Congress in all of U.S. history. “Joe Biden is a communist,” Greene declared strongly Thursday evening. “And that’s who the Democrats are – they’re communists.” “You know, a lot of people are swallowing down the word ‘socialist,’ but that’s not a good enough word for Democrats – they are communists,” Greene told her supporters, clearly ignorant of the words’ meanings. “That’s the word we need to keep using with them,” she continued. “Because they’re using these unprecedented, authoritarian, tyrannical controls on the American people to force people to comply.” Marge Greene today: \u201cJoe Biden is a communist. And that\u2019s what the Democrats are - they\u2019re communists.

    Getty New England Patriots offensive lineman Ted Karras emitting a loud scream after a thrilling victory. The New York Jets did a very nice job hitting the upgrade button in the trenches this offseason. They added two new starters in Alijah Vera-Tucker at left guard (via the 2021 NFL draft) and Morgan Moses at right tackle (via free agency). On top of that, they traded for veteran Laurent Duvernay-Tardif ahead of the deadline and he eventually became their new starting right guard.

    The  Dobbs late abortion case heard by the Supreme Court this week is the most consequential case for the pro-life movement in two generations. In this case involving Mississippi’s law to limit abortions after 15 weeks, the Court agreed to consider whether any pre-viability limits on abortion are constitutional – a question with implications for millions of lives, born and unborn, and for American democracy. The justices will meet Friday in a private conference to take an initial vote, then write their opinions and issue a decision likely next June. Their positions could still change. With the usual caveats about making predictions, there is reason to be optimistic about how arguments went. On the pro-abortion side, Justice Sotomayor characterized the notion that unborn children experience pain well before viability as “fringe science.” But one of the leading proponents of that view – Dr. Stuart Derbyshire – is a mainstream enough authority that the abortion lobby cited his earlier work in their reply brief back in September. They just failed to mention that he has publicly changed his position, writing in a prestigious journal last...

    Ghislaine Maxwell's supportive older sister Isabel has been standing by her during her sex abuse trial in the US.  Maxwell, who denies all charges, faces a maximum sentence of 80 years in prison if found guilty of abuse, procurement of young girls for Epstein and sex trafficking crimes dating back decades. Her brother Ian, 65, the seventh of the nine Maxwell children, has been a vocal supporter of his sister and spoke out again last week in her defence, saying he believes the 'enormous amount of negative media coverage' of the case will 'poison' the jury against her.  However her sister Isabel, 71, has also been quietly supporting Maxwell during the trial, and has been spotted attending court each day in New York. Once described in The Jerusalem Post as 'a fireball' who is 'always in your face', tech-entrepreneur Isabel has always been a Maxwell to watch. During an interview with the publication in 2006, Isabel described how she dealt with challenges in life, saying: 'I have learned not to run away from bad times.

    Alec Baldwin made many shocking revelations when he spoke out about the "Rust" shooting incident in his first sit-down interview which aired Thursday night. The fatal Oct. 21 incident on the Western movie set left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured.

    The surge in fuel prices across the U.S. over the past year has hit poorer Americans the most, a report published Thursday details. The Financial Times sets out price rises have hit the country’s gig economy drivers as much as everyday motorists, forcing many to overhaul the way they work or ditch their jobs entirely. Uber and Lyft, the two biggest ride-hailing apps, are trying to ease the burden by encouraging a switch to electric vehicles, but the FT maintains many drivers are frustrated as the prices are weighing particularly on the bottom end of the income scale. “Drivers seem to be driving less,” said Melissa Berry, editor at The Rideshare Guy, an industry blog. This change in the way the gig economy works in response to fuel prices “has no doubt exacerbated the driver shortage Uber and Lyft have been periodically finding themselves in.” China Joe has a message for all us working class peasants who have the audacity to complain about the Biden gas crisis. https://t.co/oqm1q6d0Hw — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) November 24, 2021 Petrol prices, posted at corner stations,...
    Since the COVID-19 virus first appeared in December 2019, thousands of variants have emerged — but, until this month, Delta reigned supreme. The arrival of omicron — with the first U.S. case detected in San Francisco on Wednesday and more in New York, Minnesota and Colorado a day later — is a reminder that Delta isn’t the endgame. How do COVID-19’s two most recent and worrisome variants compare? Here’s a snapshot of what we know. Mutations Omicron has the most mutations of any variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. We still have to learn how those genetic changes behave. But they take hold for a reason — because they help a variant excel. Delta: It has 13 mutations. Of these, nine are in the spike protein, the protrusion on the surface of the virus that helps it latch onto human cells. Specifically, two are in a molecular hook, called the “receptor-binding domain,” helping it cling to cells more tightly, according to Suresh V. Kuchipudi of Penn State University, who studies viral evolution. Omicron: It’s a mutation monster —...
    With all eyes concentrating on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, flu season has quietly snuck up on New Yorkers, which reported hundreds of new cases of influenza, according to the state Department of Health. In the latest update from the Department of Health, New York recorded 980 cases of influenza out of more than 49,000 tests that were conducted, marking the “first week widespread activity has been reported following one week of regional activity.” According to health officials, 47 counties reported cases of influenza, with just five having none. The hardest-hit areas, with more than 10 cases per 100,000 population, by county: Orange; Putnam; Onondaga; Cortland; Tompkins; Seneca; Allegany; Cattaraugus.

    DENVER (CBS4) – The weekly U.S. Drought Monitor report released Thursday morning showed drought conditions continue to expand in Colorado. One of the biggest changes from the report last week was an upgrade from severe to extreme drought across much of metro Denver, the Front Range and the northeast plains. Pockets of extreme drought are also being detected in the San Luis Valley, on the extreme southeast plains of Baca County and on portions of the western slope. The entire state of Colorado is currently in some stage of drought. The first storm in several weeks will approach the state sometime on Monday and it should bring a chance for snow back into the mountains. Depending on the track we could even see some rain or snow showers in Denver and across the lower elevations by Tuesday. In addition to the chance for some moisture it looks like temperatures will turn much colder. Instead of running as much as 30 degrees above normal in some places we will see afternoon highs by Tuesday either near or slightly below where...

    SACRAMENTO —  There are 1.6 million Californians today who were alive when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor 80 years ago, pushing America into World War II. Probably half were old enough to remember that dreadful day — “Dec. 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy,” as President Franklin D. Roosevelt eloquently called it. I was 4, playing with my little brother at the bottom of a slope behind our hilltop house in Santa Barbara when Mom rushed down, very intense. Kneeling at face level, she lectured: “Remember this day. It’s Dec. 7. Dec. 7. It’s historic. America has been attacked. ... We’re at war.” And she kept repeating it. That’s the only reason I remember the actual day that Pearl Harbor was sneakily bombed. I remember other things about the war. Not long after the Pearl Harbor attack, on the evening of Feb. 23, 1942, a Japanese submarine surfaced just north of Santa Barbara and shelled the Ellwood oil field where my dad was working on a crew. No one was hurt. But dad was ticked. “They gave us...

The National Fraternal Order of Police called on Congress to pass the "Protect and Serve Act" – legislation reintroduced by 17 Republican lawmakers in March that would "create federal penalties for individuals who deliberately target local, state, or federal law enforcement officers with violence." The FOP demanded, "Congress must act now to address the terrible violence targeting our law enforcement officers and pass the 'Protect and Serve Act' to better protect the brave men and women who wear the badge and send a clear message to those who would seek to do them harm." The FOP blamed "rogue prosecutors refusing to prosecute violent criminals" for the rising crime across...
    Scouting Report: If you want nonstick cookware without the chemicals, Caraway cookware is what you’ve been dreaming of. For two decades, my mother’s kitchen cabinets have been crammed with the same garbage Teflon pots and pans that have been leaching toxins into her food while simultaneously infuriating me whenever I have to cook with them. Not only do I worry about the chemicals that leach from the Teflon coating into our food (particularly when the coating begins to peel or scratch off into the food – gross!) but the pans themselves cook unevenly and inefficiently. Since I now prepare most of my mother’s meals, I upgraded her cookware to the new Caraway cookware set, which is currently 20 percent off during their annual sale. These ceramic-coated aluminum pots and pans promise to be nonstick for a lifetime so since my mom likes to keep her cookware for several decades, they seemed perfect for her. Not only is Caraway's cookware non-stick and absolutely beautiful (I sometimes leave them out on the stove instead of putting them away just because they’re so...
    The latest Netflix action comedy hit Red Notice has now become the most watched film on the platform after racking up 328.8 million viewing hours, despite poor reviews. Netflix announced the blockbuster movie's success Tuesday, saying that over half its 214 million subscribers across the world had tuned in. Red Notice starring A-list Hollywood celebrities such as Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot premiered on Netflix on November 5. It was also released in theaters for people who wish to enjoy it on the big screen, but so far has only made around $2 million of its $200 million production cost back. Netflix won't mind though, with the huge outlay on the movie primarily intended to drive subscribers to the streamer and boost its finances long-term.  The film, which has seen by half of the platform's subscribers, has surpassed the most-watched title that was originally held by the 2018 post-apocalyptic drama Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock. Netflix action comedy hit Red Notice has become the most watched film on the streaming platform as it garnered 328 million...
    Most Americans believe President Biden is responsible for dividing the American people, a Convention of States/Trafalgar Group survey released Tuesday found.  “To what extent do you believe President Biden is responsible for the divisions in the American people?” the survey asked. Overall, 54.2 percent said Biden is responsible for dividing Americans, and of those, 39.4 percent said he is “very” responsible.  Meanwhile, 45.8 percent said he is generally not responsible for the division.  The vast majority of Democrats, 78.7 percent, do not believe Biden is responsible for dividing the American people, but a majority of Republicans and independents, 88 percent and 64.1 percent, respectively, do. The survey, taken November 13 – 16, 2021, among 1,092 likely general election voters, has a margin of error of +/- 2.97 percent.  While Biden made several mentions of unity in his inauguration speech 10 months ago, his presidency has been plagued by divisive rhetoric coming straight from the commander-in-chief, as he as directly pitted vaccinated Americans against unvaccinated Americans. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” he said in a September 9 speech, scolding unvaccinated...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A fiery head-on crash shut down part of I-5 at the I-80 interchange Tuesday morning. The California Highway Patrol says a suspected DUI driver was traveling in the wrong direction on Southbound I-5 when they crashed into a big rig head-on. READ MORE: Police: Infant Shot In Arm With BB Gun At West Sacramento Motel 6Both drivers are expected to survive, but a North Highlands family of five involved in a wrong-way crash didn’t have the same fate. A mother, father and two children under 10 died after being hit by a wrong-way driver who was also suspected of DUI on I-80 in the Sierra.

    Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) urged Americans to grasp the significance of the historic case before the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday – one that offers the nine justices “the opportunity to reconsider a wrongly decided case that has since resulted in the death of 62 million innocent babies.” The chairman of the Senate’s Pro-Life Caucus said Tuesday afternoon that as the Court hears opening arguments in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the justices will have the chance “to restore the Constitution and defend our most fundamental right—the right to life.” The case involves Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which would limit abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, and poses the most significant challenge in decades to the right to abortion created by the Supreme Court in its decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973. In explaining the nature of the case, Daines asserted: It’s very important that we are clear about what overturning Roe would mean for our country. Overturning Roe will not, will not, ban abortion nationwide, as many on the Left like to claim in an attempt to mislead Americans. Instead, it would return the power to state and federal lawmakers, allowing them to...
    Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy advocated in favor of overturning the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, calling it “one of the most poorly reasoned decisions” on the Senate floor Tuesday. Kennedy addressed the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up in May. The case responds to a 2018 Mississippi law that bans abortion at 15 weeks of gestation, challenging the precedent that the right to an abortion is protected before fetal viability. Kennedy said that lawmakers have ongoing debates on ways to “protect” and “lift up” the powerless, including unborn and potential lives. The senator said Roe v. Wade gives the “managerial elite” the power to rule over moral decisions for the rest of the American people, stripping them of the right to make those decisions independently. “Now Roe v. Wade is about abortion, we know that. But it’s also about something else. Roe v. Wade is also about federalism. Roe v. Wade is also about the American people,” Kennedy said. “Roe v. Wade is about whether a...

    Appearing Monday on the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) referred to White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci as the “most dangerous bureaucrat” in U.S. history. A transcript is as follows: SEAN HANNITY: You laid out proof that [Fauci’s] lying. He knew about gain of function, he knew that the NIH contributed money to it, and he lied. SEN. TED CRUZ: I think Dr. Fauci is the most dangerous bureaucrat in the history of the country. I don’t think anyone has hurt science, the credibility of the CDC and doctors than Dr. Fauci. Throughout this pandemic, he’s been dishonest, political, partisan, and the American people know it. […] On the weekend, he did this long interview where he said, “I represent science, I am science. I was laughing. It was like Louis XIV, the Sun King in France, saying “I am the state.”

    Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday he believes Roe v. Wade will soon be overturned, as the Supreme Court is set to take up its biggest abortion case in 30 years. The court will soon decide the fate of a Mississippi abortion law, which bans the practice after 15 weeks into a pregnancy.  'Today as the Supreme Court prepares to hear oral arguments in those hallowed halls, we are here to declare with one voice 'no more,' he said at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. at an event put on by the Susan B. Anthony list.  'I'm very hopeful and I do believe that Roe v. Wade will be overturned whether it's now or in the future,' he said.   He urged the high court to throw the Roe v.

    Tuesday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) addressed National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci’s pushback of criticism by claiming he represented science. Paul argued that most of Fauci’s edicts amid the coronavirus pandemic have not been “based in science.” He said Fauci was “more about submission.” “It’s sort of a way of ending all debate because if you attack him or have any debate over any of his edicts or mandate, you’re attacking science. This is a very, very dangerous sort of idea, the idea that a government bureaucrat represents science and that he is now untouchable,” Fauci warned. “It is sort of like you are now contradicting the all high priest of science if you say anything. But there are the real questions, and there’s real areas of science that he’s never really debated because he deflects. One area is over 100 million Americans have had COVID. They have natural immunity. There’s a real question about whether they should be vaccinated once, twice or not at all.” “And the thing is there’s...
    (CBS4) – There’s been an uptick recently in the number of Americans leaving their jobs for better pay and benefits in other positions. And in Colorado the percentage of these job departures is higher than in other states, according to new statistics. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows Colorado saw 4.3% of workers in the state resign in September. Bureau of Labor Statistics quit rates in September were highest in these 10 states. (credit: CBS News) To compare, Hawaii (No. 1 for resignations) had just over 7%. Montana (No. 2) had just under 5%. Colorado is tied with Indiana and Alaska for the No. 4 spot at 4.3%. Hawaii: 7.1% Montana: 4.8% Nevada: 4.5% Alaska: 4.3% Colorado: 4.3% Indiana: 4.3% Idaho: 4.1% Oregon: 3.9% Louisiana: 3.8% New Hampshire: 3.8% So what’s driving workers away? States with more people quitting have issues beyond the pandemic. That includes an aging workforce or a low workforce participation rate. In states with low unemployment rates, workers are using that leverage to find more lucrative jobs. MORE FROM CBSNEWS.COM: Americans are quitting their...
    BOSTON (CBS) — In the case of Tuukka Rask potentially rejoining the Boston Bruins this season, there’s been a whole lot of open-ended, speculative talk. Now, there’s something a bit more definitive — and it points to a return seeming borderline imminent. Bruins general manager Don Sweeney spoke to the media on Tuesday, and at the end of the session, he was asked if the team has spoken with Rask about a contract. Sweeney said that such a time has not yet come, but when it does, he’s confident that the two sides will be able to reach an agreement. READ MORE: Bruins Head Coach Bruce Cassidy Placed In COVID-19 Protocol“If indeed he is healthy and wants to play, then he’s likely to be a part of our group,” Sweeney stated. That’s a bit more decisive than “the door is open” or “we’ll see what happens.” Granted, Sweeney’s statement still had qualifiers. For one, Rask has to reach the right level of health. Then, he’ll have to decide he wants to play for the Bruins. “I think there’s been a...
